California State Parole Board Panel Recommends Parole for Ex-Manson Follower
California state panel is recommending parole for a one time Manson family follower. Bruce Davis was convicted in 1972 of first degree murder and conspiracy for the July 1969 killing of Gary Hinman inside his Topanga Canyon home. Davis was also found guilty of murdering Donald Shorty Shea. The now 78 year old Davis has been found suitable for parole a half dozen times in the past, however, three California governor's reverse the parole board's recommendations.
