Was Tex Watson doing what Charles Manson told him to do or did Watson go in business for himself in murdering the seven Tate-LaBianca victims ?
Was Watson a brainwashed Mansonite or more of an independent drug-dealing thief with deeper connections to the organized crime family than the Manson family ?Helter Skelter Forum member Gary Stewart, with the assist to TLB Radio contributing reseacher Gina Watkins, recently made one of the most incredible and original TLB observations and connections I have seen or heard in quite a while.
I would argue not since Katie from the LSB3.com connected Bill Garretson's polygraph comments to the police report of one of Pat Krenwinkle's known alias' has there been such a meaningful discovery in TLB research.
A couple months ago during one of our impromptu TLB Radio Special Broadcasts, I reported and actually showed listeners through our Ustream app, exactly what Gina and Gary put together !
If you missed it, here it is and you're welcome !
During a conversation of discussing the Joel Rostau angle of TLB, Gina mentioned she had a copy of the FBI file for Eugene Massaro. Massaro was Rostau's crime partner going back to the mid-sixties in Florida.
Gina then sent Gary a copy of Massaro's FBI file.
After reading Massaro's FBI file, Gary recalled a passage from Tex Watson's book,
In chapter ten, "Happy In Hollywood", Watson talks of his association with a mafia
connected drug-dealer who owned vending machines as a front for drug dealing:
"With Rich gone and Willis at work most of the time, I got pretty bored. I'd arranged to buy a kilo of grass from the dealer who'd been supplying the Family-he fronted the dope with a vending-machine company and people said he was with the Mafia-but I'd sold what wasn't used, so there wasn't even grass to keep me company."
As you will read in the Massaro FBI file, Massaro owned a vending machine company and was part of organized crime. Note Watson says this dealer had been supplying to the Family.

Among other things listed in the FBI report below, Massaro was a burglar and even more interesting was Massaro's modus operandi, "injuring telephone lines".
Wonder where Tex learned his skills ? I don't think it was from the "creepy crawls".
