The House at the End of the Drive
WHAT DO WE REALLY KNOW ABOUT THE FAMILY AND 10050?
1- Charlie did come visiting before the Tates moved in.
2- Charlie did come at least once AFTER the Tates moved in. Hatomi the photographer confirms this.
3- Bug and Watkins both claim that Charlie knew that Melcher and Bergen had moved out... but I don't trust anything either of them say.
4- Watson NOW says Charlie was up there the day before the killings. I don't believe this.
5- Rudi Altobelli, a show business agent owned the house. For all you homophobes out there who jumped up my ass when I supposedly outed Parent, Altobelli was and is as gay as gay can be. It doesn't matter, except when examining Garrettson and Parent's reasons for being at the house.
6- Sharon was not supposed to be staying there the night she was killed. Her car was in the shop and not in the driveway that night.
7- The girls did visit and swim in the pool back when Terry lived there.
8- I believe Charlie did visit later that night AFTER the murder with Bruce and Clem and Nancy.
9- If the Family DID have ties to Voytek it is a bit too coincidental for my liking that he just happened to be staying at that house.
10- IF (and a big IF) Charlie did tell Tex to kill everyone up there, I find it impossible to believe they MISSED the caretaker.
Here is what I am missing and if I can find this then every piece of the jigsaw snaps into place... what is the connection between VOYTEK and MELCHER?
There is NO DOUBT in my mind that Charlie believed Terry still lived there. Think about it? He had visited this amazing house (the Col went a dozen times before the tear down)- do you think Terry commented to the wannabe musician "I am just renting?" Even if there were different "pigs" there when he visited, why would he think Terry did NOT own it? And if one of those pigs was a drug dealer who had wronged him or a member of the Family..... kaboom, TLB starts.
But I must admit- though I do believe there is a connection I have not found it.
I just don't believe in coincidences... why THAT house? Sharon was NOT the target (indeed, they probably now wish she was never there, since her death insures their eternal infamy). The fact that it was at a house that they had all been to before.... no, there is a link. There has to be.
