The girls flocked to his side, starting with librarian Mary Brunner, followed by pixie-cute Lynette Fromme, soon dubbed Squeaky, oversexed Susan Atkins and trust-funder Sandra Good. More than anything, according to Bugliosi, Manson wanted to be a rock star. They lived at Spahn Ranch, a sometime Hollywood backdrop for Westerns where Charlie let it be known he might be Jesus, and everyone treated him as such, which has led to the belief that he had some kind of super-duper hypnotic Svengali-on-blotter hold over the people there. Kids who'd never really had a home before now had one. In Bugliosi's account, Manson got tired of waiting for the war to start, so on August 9th, 1969, he decided to kick-start it by sending former star high school athlete Tex Watson, former Catholic-college student Patricia Krenwinkel, former church-choir singer Susan Atkins and a recent arrival named Linda Kasabian to a house some rich people were living in on Cielo Drive in Los Angeles – a house that Melcher had once rented – with the order to "totally destroy everyone in [it], as gruesome as you can." They were to leave "witchy" signs and portents behind that would make it look like the work of Black Panthers. Or at least no one did say no."I'm the devil and I'm here to do the devil's business," Watson announced upon entering the home.

My name is CJ, and I'm an Erotic Massage Therapist. Well, I'm not even going to bother trying to remember the fake names of the girls who used to work here.
Now if you don't know what that is - I work in a massage parlor. One of the girls started doing full service outside The Business. I had to let her go and last I heard she got a job at a full service parlor outside Atlantic City. One was a pretty little girl from Peru of all places. Knew exactly what she was getting herself into, but still acted like each second at work was slowly shredding her immortal soul and condemning her to an eternity of unrelentless torment and pain. The next was a married woman who's husband wasn't just OK with her working in a massage parlor, but actually suggested she try it.
Krenwinkel, 65, and Van Houten, 64, are in the California Institution for Women in Chino, where they have been model prisoners and continue to hope for parole. In 1970, this magazine published the first exhaustive account of Manson and his followers, 22 pages long, titled "The Incredible Story of the Most Dangerous Man Alive," taking a nuanced approach and allowing Manson to speak at length.
