Vincent Bugliosi
Birth: Aug. 18, 1934
St. Louis County
Minnesota, USA
Death: Jun. 6, 2015
Los Angeles County
California, USA

American Attorney, Prosecutor and Author. Bugliosi will best be remembered for successfully prosecuting Charles Manson and his accomplices for the seven Tate-LaBianca murders in 1969. Bugliosi graduated from the University of Miami, which he attended on a tennis scholarship. In 1964, he received his law degree from UCLA, where he was president of his graduating class. On the night of August 8, 1969, Manson directed "family members" Charles "Tex" Watson, Susan Atkins, Linda Kasabian, and Patricia Krenwinkel to murder the occupants inside the house of a former acquaintance on Cielo Drive in Benedict Canyon. Killed were movie actress Sharon Tate, noted hairstylist Jay Sebring, coffee heiress Abigail Folger, aspiring screenwriter Wojciech Frykowski and Steve Parent, the friend of a caretaker. The following evening, Manson accompanied six family members, the four from the previous night, along with Leslie Van Houten and Steve "Clem" Grogan, to a house on Waverly Drive in the Los Feliz section of Los Angeles, which was owned and occupied by supermarket executive Leno LaBianca and his wife, Rosemary, a dress shop co-owner. After tying up the victims, Manson sent Watson, Krenwinkel and Van Houten to murder the couple. In a sensational trial that began on June 15, 1970, Bugliosi convinced the jury to convict the defendants on January 25, 1971. He later co-wrote a book about the Manson trial called 'Helter Skelter', which is the biggest selling true crime book in publishing history with over 7 million copies sold. During his eight years in the Los Angeles County district attorney's office, Bugliosi successfully prosecuted 105 out of 106 felony jury trials, which included 21 murder convictions without a single loss. After leaving the district attorney's office in 1972, he turned to private practice and wrote or co-wrote several other bestsellers, including 'Till Death Us Do Part: A True Murder Mystery' (1978), 'Shadow of Cain' (1981), 'And the Sea Will Tell' (1991), 'Outrage: The Five Reasons Why O.J. Simpson Got Away with Murder' (1996), 'Reclaiming History: The Assassination of President John F. Kennedy' (2007) and
'Divinity of Doubt: The God Question' (2011). Bugliosi had been struggling with cancer in recent years. (bio by: Louis du Mort)
