Manson family tapes could shed new light on murders, LAPD says

Los Angeles Police Department detectives hope that audio tapes from more than four decades ago could shed new light on the Charles Manson murder spree.

The LAPD has been fighting to review the tapes for months.

On Tuesday, a federal judge in Texas has ruled that LAPD can have access to taped conversations between one ofCharles Manson‘s most fervent followers and his late attorney to see if it can help solve more murders.,0,4380310.story
