It was Charlie Rudd, a Ventura County investigator on the case, and he determined it was a drowning

Thanks for staying up & providing the report Kimchi.

That is typical of this case. The detective on the case rules accidental, and many many speculators report it as revenge killing by Manson/family.

I know Bob... it's amazing.

The coroner lists "undetermined"... while the investigating officer, Mr. Rudd... says it's a drowning?
...and the case is left "open".

This case is a riddle, inside a puzzle, wrapped in mystery.

I wish just two people would agree on something, just one time! LOLOL

Personally...
If there were no bullet holes, or stab wounds, I would lean towards accidental.

'Course, I suppose they could drown a man... or make him eat 5 hamburgers laced with LSD. LOL

Given the description of the flash flooding & the vehicle being left behind while the owners left on foot, Ron was left behind because he was too out of shape to walk out with them. Man that really sucks. It also confirms in my mind that the family had nothing to do with his death. That wouldnt keep them from taking credit for though.

I'm just curious...

On the George Spahn article:
Did anyone else catch these two sentences ... on the next to last page?

"Manson claimed to have written music for rock-and-roll recording artists, and sometimes he was visited at the ranch by members of The Beach Boys and also by Doris Day's son, Terry Melcher.
All sorts of new people had been visiting the ranch since Manson's arrival, and one wrangler even claimed to have seen the pregnant Sharon Tate riding through the ranch one day".


Sensationalism?

Pretty wild stuff, if Sharon actually did visit the ranch.
