Known Associates

Detective Lieutenant Earl Deemer’s List

Spahn Raid

A range of crimes including auto theft, credit card fraud, harboring underage runaways, guns and drug offences, began to lead to the many investigations that would surround the story as it is known today.

In the late 1960s, Charles Manson and his group of followers began to capture the attention of law enforcement throughout Southern California, even before the Tate-Labianca murders took place. A range of crimes including auto theft, credit card fraud, harboring underage runaways, guns and drug offences, began to lead to the many investigations that would surround the story as it is known today.

During these times, police officers, and in particular Detective Lieutenant Earl Deemer created a list of known associates they believed would play a role in possible prosecutions of the Family. The following are the names of people that were part of, killed by, or associated with “The Family” The names in BOLD are people that were, at the time of the lists creation and use, suspected to be in “The Family” directly. As you can see below, many who were in-fact members were not yet identified as such in this list.
