Multiple books and movies (including the excellent "Once Upon A Time In Hollywood") have been produced about the two night killing spree in August of '69. I've seen them all and yet I never knew that one of the most vicious, awful killers of the bunch headed for Alabama! Charles Manson definitely had some kind of strange power. He was able to lure young, beautiful girls into his sordid family by the dozens.
"She was the most beautiful, loving and sweet person I had ever met" The words of Winchester Hagans from East Alabama near Notasulga, Alabama. The love of his life? Her name was Hannah Ford. In a cruel twist, as they searched for the perfect place to tie the knot, Hannah was killed.
It was a terrible car accident. It happened on that same day they finally were able to find a wedding venue.
THIS is the worst story I have ever reported to the public. Two parents have been indicted on charges of second-degree murder of their daughter.
That, in itself, is bad enough. However, Clay and Sheila Fletcher have been booked into a Louisiana jail after their daughter was found dead after sitting on a sofa for OVER 12 years.
Just last week, I did a story on an Alabama man that is wanted. Yeah, you can check that out right HERE It featured, quite possibly, the worst mug shot I have ever seen.
WRONG. Until I saw these mug shots a couple days later.
If you have ever walked in a Starbucks in the morning hours, you know it is always jam-packed. That was no different last week at a Starbucks in Florida, right down the street from a resort full of Spring Break vacationers.
Young ladies and young men from schools all over the country. Yes, that includes right here in Alabama.
