Attorney who represented Leslie Van Houten during the Manson murder trials. He refused to go along with Manson's ploy to have his three "girls" take all of the blame for the murders. He mysteriously disappeared in the last weekend of November, 1970, just days after the defense rested its case. His badly decomposed body was found four months later near the Sespe Hot Springs. A couple of Manson's followers later confessed that the Manson Family had murdered Hughes.
b. February 11, 1889 d. September 22, 1974
Owner of 'Spahn Ranch,' refuge of the infamous Manson Family.
Donald "Shorty" Shea|
Charlie (Manson) blamed the arrests on Spahn's ranch hand Donald "Shorty" Shea for snitching on the family. It was no secret that Shorty wanted the family off the ranch. Manson decided it was time for the family to move to Barker Ranch near Death Valley, but before leaving, Manson, Bruce Davis, Tex Watson and Steve Grogan killed Shorty and buried his body behind the ranch.
Bruce Davis, who was Charles Manson's chief lieutenant, committed the murders (of Donald "Shorty" Shea and Gary Hinman) as part of a month-long killing spree by the Manson Family in the summer of 1969 in southern California. These were not related to the Sharon Tate and Rosemary LaBianca murders of Aug. 9 and 10, 1969. Hinman was killed before, and Shea was killed after, the Tate/LaBianca murders.
Donald "Shorty" Shea was 36 years old when he was brutally tortured and killed by Davis, Manson and other Family members. Shea was a hired ranch hand at Spahn Ranch, where the Family lived. He was not a Family member.
Shea "disappeared" in late August 1969, but his corpse went undiscovered until 1979, when another Family member, Steve "Clem" Grogan, seeking parole for the murder of Shea, agreed to tell authorities where the body was. Shea's remains were found and Grogan was paroled in 1986. To date, Grogan is the only Manson Family member convicted of murder to have been paroled.
According to one of the prosecutors, the murder of Shorty Shea was only the third "no body" murder case to be prosecuted in the United States.
