I did searches on various obsessions and came up with a bunch of great images but I am going to try to keep this vaguely topical.
First Stop: The Manson Family"Member of Charles Manson "Hippie family" Susan D. Atkins indicted for murder of actress Sharon Tate and friends." Ralph Crane, 1969.
"Hippie cult leader Charles Manson in court facing multiple murder charges in the brutal deaths of actress Sharon Tate and others." Vernon Merritt Iii, 1969"Members of Charles Manson "hippie family" Lynn Fromme (L) and Sandra G. Pugh in court when other members were indicted for murder."Vernon Merritt Iii, 1969

"Deputy district attorney Vincent Bugliosi in the Los Angeles Hall of Justice being interviewed at beginning of Grand Jury hearing." Ralph Crane, 1969 This guy wrote Helter Skelter.
"Press talk to, while police watch, a group of shaven headed people outside the courthouse during the trial of cult leader Charles Manson." Michael Rougier, 1972 This was years later when the Manson Girls shaved their heads and carved X's into their foreheads."Member of jury during the Charles Manson trial Mrs. Jean Roseland."

"80-yr-old George Spahn, owner of the the Spahn Movie ranch where cult leader Charles Manson and his followers, known as the Manson Family, stayed." Ralph Crane, 1969
"Interior of Spahn ranch." Ralph Crane, 1969. I love how it looks like a movie set, nothing says homicidal cult crash pad like a bare mattress on the floor.

"Make shift kitchen on Barker ranch, home of Charles Manson hippie family." Vernon Merritt Iii, 1969
