Paul Watkins as witness at Tate trial. Watkins, a good looking youth
with a way with women, had been
Manson's chief procurer of young
girls. Often he acted as Manson's second in command. While on
trips to and from the Barker Ranch in Inyo County, Watkins over whom
Manson had a vice-like
hold on was successfully deprogrammed from
Manson's way of thinking by a local miner, Paul
Crockett and was
therefore able to serve as a witness at the trial.
