In 2000, The L.A. Times published a first-person account written by former census bureau trainee Virginia Leaper, who recalled a sunny California Day during the Spring of ’70, where she’d been assigned (on the last day of training) to survey the infamous Spahn Movie Ranch, where the Manson Family had allegedly plotted the ritualistic murders of actress Sharon Tate and six others. Charles Manson was already in custody and awaiting trial, but a handful of his followers still resided at the ranch with its then 81-year-old owner, George Spahn. As Ms. Leaper tells it, these zealots knew the government had Manson locked down, yet still believed he’d return to them any day, cleared of all charges.

Leaper had heard the rumors regarding the old blind man and the “hippie” commune on his ranch.

However, on the afternoon this hapless census employee turned off Santa Susana Pass Road onto the dirt trail that led to Spahn’s ranch, she found Manson’s harem suspiciously eyeing her after she entered its elderly owner’s home. While Leaper asked Spahn a series of questions (all contained in a “three-pound” binder), the dirty faces in the room multiplied, closing in and making her quite uncomfortable.
