Did not know that this was discussed already. Even though the "facts" are not correct about "Richard," do we know if he was dragging Gyke into the Manson story at the time? Is "Richard" believed to have been Gyke?
I found this on a website. The website is a bit "corny" but...:
"Blaine Blaine", aka "Goldcatcher", aka "Zakatarious", has been conclusively exposed as a liar & hoaxter by Zodiac killer researchers:http://zodiackillerfacts.com/blog/archi ... ther-name/
Blaine Blaine was Ed Sanders' principle source for the idea that Charles Manson was a practising & high-ranking Satanist. He is the author of the infamous "Father P. and Pussycat" fantasy, which starts on page 91 of my copy of "The Family".
As Blaine was almost certainly also a source of various fantasies for Ted Gunderson and Maury Terry, it's conceivable that this man was personally responsible for a large portion of the whole "murderous satanic cults in America" mythos.http://dysgenicsreport.blogspot.com/201 ... -body.html
Never fear, Blaine is like the proverbial broken clock, which is right twice a day (unless it is digital and gives "AM" and "PM" readings, then only once. LOL!). Even if BTB is not credible, the stroy goes, Gyke is still the strongest suspect ever developed. That's what the disclaimer says. He even admitted it from the great beyond the other night...
