Circumstances of Disappearance
Manson was a student at the Evergreen State College in Olympia in 1974. She was last seen headed for a jazz concert on the campus. She was not reported as a missing person for six days, as she often hitchhiked to nearby locales.
Serial-killer Theodore Robert "Ted" Bundy confessed to her murder before his execution. He claimed that her partial skeleton had been recovered by authorities on March 3, 1975 at Taylor Mountain, Washington, but had not been identified. Bundy's statement has never been confirmed.
