I guess I have to ask why a surname he was given would equate to anything superatural in his mind.

Leno Labianca's daughter, Cory, was my roommate in college and I was a bridesmaid at her wedding. The trial was ongoing during her wedding and I recall that shortly before her wedding, her brother, who, as I recall, was testifying about finding Leno and Rosemary's bodies. I know firsthand, what an agony the whole thing was for her and I thank heaven that the papparazzi that exist now was not a factor back then. I think she would have been hounded on campus and off. Cory and I have not been in touch for decades but I still think of her often and especially when Manson or members of his "family" are in the news. This was a huge, HUGE story back then. To this day I have a fear of knives and cannot watch anything on TV or movies that feature knife crimes.

Oh - and Terry Melcher is Doris Day's son (don't know if he's still alive). But he was another "connection" (i.e., the Beatles, "Helter-Skelter," Dennis Wilson - the Beach Boys and Terry Melcher - Doris Day's son - not to mention Roman Polanski, Sharon Tate, the Folger's heiress, and some other people at the house who were famous) . . . and the fact Sharon Tate was nine month's pregnant . . .

Yeah, well, Charlie was after Melcher because he felt he'd been promised something . . . it was a situation that would've been interesting played out today on American Idol. I don't know whether Terry ever signed any great acts anyway; he may have just been a dillitante who was riding on his famous relation.

The other big name at the Tate scene was Jay Sebring, who was the Vidal Sassoon of his day.

Charles Manson follower ends her silence 40 years after night of slaughter | World news | The Observer

I had forgotten this, but this article says that Manson targeted Roman Polanski's residence because he thought it was Terry Melcher's (I guess Terry Melcher had lived there, previously) and Manson was pissed off about a deal that fell through . . .

Edit: Another article (below) says Charlie knew Terry had moved but chose the location specifically to send him a message and scare him. (I think it worked.)

I was wondering because I thought we'd covered all of that.
