— Spooky rumors have persisted for decades that there might be clandestine graves at a secluded ranch used as a hideout by the Charles Manson clan after a 1969 killing spree.

Today, Inyo County Sheriff's investigators and scientists packing portable ground-penetrating radar, magnetometers and shovels will convoy to the Barker Ranch near Panamint Springs on a mission to confirm or end such speculation.

The search is expected to continue through Thursday.

An imprisoned member of the so-called Manson family suggested that bodies were buried at the Barker Ranch. Preliminary tests of soil samples and with search dogs have yielded mixed results.

40 years and now there's a snitch. I guess it takes that long for the effects of the LSD to wear off and them realize that their never going to get out of jail. Had they done this 40 years ago the family would had killed them like Manson's first lawyer, who was found buried in the desert near Las Vegas.

So they wrote them off and I am sure some of them ponder on where their offspring went 2..but it is easier for them 2 just think they are o.K. and living a happy life ..when in truth ..they have been a rotting corpse for decades now...shame on the parents that let their dumb@ss beliefs and intolerance to the `60s lifestyle that drove the kids from the home in the 1st place....shame ..shame ..shame...Manson should have been tortured and shot between the eyes right in that spot he had the swastika! Bang..Bang!

And just where do you begin to find the families of the runaways that are the victims..the parents probably didnt care about them then...and likely still dont! Sad thing about the free love youths at that time...the parents were a bunch of hypocryte turds that had skeletons in their own closets but did not want the youngsters of that time exposing their dirty little family secrets!
