Vincent Bugliosi, Author And Prosecutor In Manson Trial, Dies At 80

Vincent Bugliosi, the prosecutor of Charles Manson, has died at age 80.

Bugliosi was the author of Helter Skelter, which covered the Manson trial, and Reclaiming History, which covered the Kennedy Assassination (Oswald did it), and other true crime books.

The Philadelphia Inquirer offers an obituary of Vincent Bugliosi.

Vincent Bugliosi, a prosecutor who parlayed his handling of the Charles Manson trial into a career as a bestselling author, has died, his son said Monday night. He was 80 years old.

Bugliosi, who had struggled with cancer in recent years, died Saturday night at a hospital in Los Angeles, his son, Vincent Bugliosi Jr., told The Associated Press.

Bugliosi Jr. said his father had "an unflagging dedication to justice" in everything he did.

As an author, Bugliosi Sr. was best known for "Helter Skelter," which was his account of the Manson Family and the killings of pregnant actress Sharon Tate and six others by followers of the cult leader, Charles Manson.
