Vincent T. Bugliosi
(August 18, 1934 - June 6, 2015)
As a prosecutor, he was tenacious, cunning, methodical, and by most standards, nothing short of legendary. From another perspective, without Vince Bugliosi, there would be no Charles Manson, and Helter Skelter would be just another song in The Beatles catalog. After successfully prosecuting Manson and penning the epic Helter Skelter, "Bugs" went on to publish several other books including Reclaiming History: The Assassination of President John F. Kennedy, Outrage: The Five Reasons Why O.J. Simpson Got Away with Murder, and The Prosecution of George W. Bush for Murder. Rest in peace.
