Don't sleep on the crazy. It's all there.
Say hello to John Linley Frazier if you're unacquainted. Frazier embodies my constant struggle for impartiality while I try to learn things instead of screaming for the executions of crazy people when they do crazy people things. Sentenced to death in 1971 only to have it commuted in California in 1972, Frazier hung himself in his prison cell in 2009. He likely passed unmourned.
Frazier has been linked to the Manson Family here and there since he committed his crimes fifty-two years ago. The focus of Frazier's wrath, Dr. Victor Ohta, pops up every now and then as the doctor who wrote the prescription for the spectacles found at the Cielo Drive crime scene. However, Ohta was an ophthalmologist specializing in cataract surgery. While I'm not sure how it works where you live, I visit an optometrist for my eyeglasses and exams.
Would Mae be in these comment threads trying to keep us from uncovering the names of her flim flammers if her game was in play today? I vote yes. Frazier is also linked to Zodiac because really who isn't?
I also have a screen cap I misplaced about Sandy Good knowing Frazier but it's basically the above with Sandy Good written in there sixteen times per paragraph. My apologies. She did type like him I suppose. You can verify below.
Frazier with hair.
How do these lunatics always get pretty women btw?
The scholars researched the ex wife. She's still kicking or we'd give you the deets. Here's Mrs. Ohta's car.
Frazier likely returned to his shack and watched the police and fire investigators comb the Ohta home for clues from the safety of the trees between his hideout and the murder scene. Not the smartest criminal, Frazier was caught with Dr. Ohta's binoculars. These are his tarot cards.
Have you ever noticed crazy people never trim their fingernails? Gross.
Frazier's crimes hurt my heart. Dr. Ohta's mother's and oldest daughter's suicides following the murders knocked me through the sidewalk like an ACME safe. Without protest, I'd pull the lever for the gallows fully knowing I was snapping the neck of person with a broken brain. We'd all get our revenge because revenge is all we have at the end of the day.
Fortunately, we have a bit more to celebrate this time. The daughter Frazier could not kill went on to live her best life and it's better than any life Frazier could've dreamed up even before he lost all of his marbles. He couldn't stop her. We saw her genuine smiles and joy.
The dark side did not win this time.
I had a blast putting this post together with Secret Agent Deb, Doug S., and Sir Buntline Heskey of Nottinghamshire. Many thanks to them as well as our esteem counsel for helping with the next one that is tentatively titled, I Know Why Werner Herzog Doesn't Smile in Photos.
