Who Gets the Money?
Today on KTS Heaven tries to answer an important question and rather than giving her usual hatched answers from a book, admits that she is not sure of the answer.
They want to know who gets the money.
What money? Any money made off the Tate/Labianca murders by the killers. Under the Son Of Sam Law enacted in the 1980s, the killers are not permitted to profit from their crimes any longer. By any longer, I mean it is likely that Sadie could have made money from her CHILD OF SATAN, CHILD OF GOD book, except I believe the author took her share and vanished. But she wrote that BEFORE the SOS Law.
In actuality, the killers have been able to avoid paying the victims very much simply because they have not made very much money or because they have scammed it through "ministries" like Tex's.
But there has been a lot of money generated- by Charlie and his music. I believe that just the Guns and Roses recording alone generated close to half a million dollars. Now, this would NOT be covered under SOS...it is unrelated to the crime, though you could argue that Charlie's fame now is related.
So Geffen records wanted to disburse the money and NOT give it to CM. Oh look, young Bartek Frykowski, son of the drug dealing friend of Roman's, had filed and won a judgment against Charlie in 1971 that with interest now equals millions. Here you go kiddo, you get some cash.
So all the music royalties from G and R to Lemonheads have gone to the grown up son of Voytek for the last 15 years give or take.
Glad to explain it all for yas!
Frequent Commentator Shelby445 points out that Bartek died a year or so ago. She is correct- but the judgment still stands and goes to his estate. Here is some convoluted plea from Sadie to give the estate money....
