Death Valley - (Rotters): FBI agents are ready to start excavating four potential burial sites at Charles Manson's former Helter Skelter Ranch in Death Valley.
Up to five hundred missing persons are believed to be interred somewhere in this sector of the Mojave desert following a tip-off from a lifer in a maximum security California penitentiary.
Other reports say that the wacko cultist shielded fugitive nutter Warren Jeffs who had gone on a killing rampage after a lethal cocktail of mescalin, LSD, freebase crack cocaine and Bailey's Irish.
This is not the first time Feds have hinted at a relationship between the two cultist men.
Previous Nevada and Southern California court testimony from the 1970s alleged that Manson and Jeffs were engaged in a gay S&M relationship much of the time.
"Now they're both in the slammer one way or another we think some very shaky alibis will crumble," an FBI source hinted darkly today.
