Charles Manson: What Squeaky Fromme, Sandra Good, Diane Lake Think Now | Crime Time

To one, he’s the man who saved her life. To another, he’s a vicious abuser who was only focused on his own preservation. 

It has been 50 years since some of Charles Manson’s followers savagely murdered actress Sharon Tate and eight others during the summer of 1969—but many of the women who followed the charismatic cult leader now have vastly different views of just who Manson really was. 

While some members say they feel “honored” to have met the notorious cult leader—who lived most his life behind bars before dying in prison in 2017—others now believe Manson “destroyed lives” of not only the murder victims and their families but also of many of his followers. 

 For many, life with Manson began as an idyllic refuge—full of free love, acceptance, drugs, and a greater purpose to care for the natural world.   

“He was the most confident person I had ever run into,” former Manson family member Catherine

Nick Godejohn’s Disability — Plus, What His Parents Think of His Crime

In police tapes on HBO’s Mommy Dead and Dearest documentary, we hear Godejohn’s mother, Stephanie, offer her account of the couple’s brief stay. “You know, it was weird because when I picked them up from the bus station, I even asked her, ‘How’s your mom doing? … That might have been the first thing I asked her. No big deal, they acted like nothing.”

Internet Detectives Think This ‘Office’ Character Is The Scranton …

‘The Office’ left the air in 2013.

Fans of the show saw Jim Halpert and Pam Beesley live happily ever after. Michael Scott married Holly and lived with his kids in Denver. Dwight Schrute finally got promoted from assistant to the regional manager to running the branch at Dunder Mifflin.

But one plot line that remaind a mystery: who was the Scranton Stranger?

As fans remember, the Strangler was an unseen character that terrorized the city of Scranton. Occasionally, characters would reference him and he was eventually caught. Or so we thought. Internet sleuths have debated theories that the real killer was still on the loose and one popular account has gained traction this week.

The fan, Spencer McClure, neatly laid out the theory on Twitter that the Scranton Stranger was none other than Human Resources manager Toby Flenderson. McClure notes that he did not come up with the theory. He heard about it three years ago

Here’s What Maura Murray’s Family Members Think Happened To Her

On February 9, 2004, the 21-year-old nursing student emailed her professors at the University of Massachusetts in Amherst and her employer requesting time off after a death in her family. The death turned out to be made up. That night, she crashed her car into a tree in northern New Hampshire. A few witnesses called the police, and when they showed up, Maura was gone.

Last week, Oxygen.com published some of the most compelling theories of what might have happened to Maura. On the first episode of the “Disappearance of Maura Murray,” Maura’s own family members, who rarely speak to the media, talked about what they think happened.

MAURA’S SISTER

Maura’s older sister by two years, Julie, said that she was very close to Maura. She revealed on Saturday’s premiere of the show what she thinks might have happened.

“Something bad happened. Something went

Man Says He Murdered Wife Because He Took Too Much Cold Medicine In Chilling 911 Call: ‘I Think I Did It’

A man from Raleigh, North Carolina allegedly consumed too much cough syrup, and then woke up to find his wife stabbed to death.

Matthew James Phelps, 29, called 911 at 1:10 am Friday. After giving his name, address and phone number, he said, “I think I killed my ..,” before trailing off, according to the Raleigh News Observer.

Lauren Ashley-Nicole Phelps, 29, was found fatally stabbed at the townhouse where they both lived. The two had been married less than a year.

“I had a dream and then I turned on the lights and she’s dead on the floor,” Phelps told the dispatcher. When she asked how, he responded, “There’s blood all over me, and there’s a bloody knife on the bed. I think I did it.”

He added that the blood on him was dried, and no longer wet.

According to BuzzFeed, Phelps admitted to taking too much Coricidin Cough

Potential Jurors Hate "Pharma Bro" Martin Shkreli, Think He’s A "Dick"

Martin Shkreli, the “pharma bro” who became infamous after greedily hiking up the price of a life-saving HIV/AIDS drug, is now on trial for a handful of charges related to fraud. Companies he worked for prior to the incident which garnered him nationwide hate claim that he operated a “Ponzi scheme” in which he used funds from one company to pay off personal debts, amongst other nefarious mishandling of finances. Now, The New York Post reports that prosecutors are having trouble picking jurors — because everyone seems to already have negatively formed opinions of Shkreli.

Prosecutors and defense lawyers have gone through 178 potential jurors, with some describing Shkreli as a “snake,” “evil” and a “dick.”

“The defendant is the face of corporate greed in America … You’d​ ​have to convince me he’s innocent​,​” ​one potential juror ​said during a sidebar.

The Most LGBTQ Friendly Cities In America Are Not The Ones You Think

Every year, the Human Right’s Campaign releases a new list of the cities considered the most friendly to LGBTQ people using parameters elaborated in the Municipal Equality Index. The idea behind the assessment is to show which states do the most to protect LGBTQ people from discrimination and violence. For the first time, 60 cities were shown to a have a perfect score in this regard.

Places like New York and San Francisco have reputations as the most socially accepting cities in the country, but some other surprising cities like Phoenix, Arizona and Orlando, Florida make surprise appearances as well. According to the LGBTQ Nation, the criteria for the rankings take into consideration “non-discrimination laws, municipal employment policies (including transgender-inclusive insurance coverage and non-discrimination requirements for contractors), inclusiveness of city services, law enforcement (including hate crimes reporting), and municipal leadership on matters of equality.” Cities also received bonus points for having openly queer
