The Family That Slays Together...


There's an interesting anecdote in the first part of the new Hendrickson book DEATH TO PIGS that caught my eye. In it he describes watching as Nancy Pitman's mom came storming to Spahn Ranch (during the trials mind you) getting mental on her because she had borrowed a 35mm Camera and not returned it.

Fascinating story, with Nancy hiding in embarrassment and what not. Hendrickson tells the story in order to show that there were still family ties, and of course with what we know about some of them, he was right. Obviously Nancy remains close to her family today.

But wtf man, wtf? Mom wants a camera back, some piece of property, not her daughter who would later go into hiding in the sewers?

Different times indeed!

It's Nancy Day! This story also caught Patty's eye: pretty little rich girls get thrown away by their mommies, too.

I don't think Nancy was ever pretty. Too hard faced.

My son stole a lot of stuff from me, and I chased his ass all over town trying to get my stuff back. You steal from me and I will hunt you down.

Hmmm, cameras were expensive back then...
