    He was tall, handsome, and raised in a religious house. As a youth, he worked in his father’s grocery store. He was a star athlete at Farmersville high school in Denton, a Texas state record holder in the hurdles. He pledged a fraternity at the University of North Texas and worked at Braniff Airlines. And if he hadn’t hitchhiked down Sunset Blvd. in the summer of 1968, he might never have met Charlie Manson. But he did. His name is Charles “Tex” Watson, and in early August 1969, he began a mission of murder called “Helter Skelter.”  We’ll uncover the path investigators forged from 2 crime scenes in what became known as the Tate-LaBianca Murders to Charlie Manson and his right-hand man, Charles “Tex” Watson, and the rest of the Manson family. We’ll study how prosecutors defeated the defense of insanity.
