CA - Doreen Gaul 19 and James Sharp 15, murdered in Los Angeles, 1969

Doreen Gaul 19 and James Sharp 15 were murdered in L.A. in 1969. Sometimes this unsolved murder is called the Scientology murders or possible victims of the Manson Family.

Doreen was striped and both were stabbed repeatedly about 50-60 times each and beaten in the face and head. Both of their eyes were slashed with the right eye cut out. Their bodies were so badly beaten that police first thought that they had been shot with a shotgun. There were motorcycle tire marks on the bodies. Both of the victims were members of the church of Scientology. They were murdered somewhere else and dumped where they were found.

Here is a link to some newspaper articles on the murders from back then.http://truthontatelabianca.com/forum...p-james-sharp/

If you are interested in the Manson Family the site I liked is probably the best on the subject. I don't think they had anything to with this murder though. IMO the murderer was a part of the local motorcycle gang who had problems with the scientologists or a crazed member of their scientology circle of friends. The cutting of the eyes just seems to personal in my opinion for it to have been a random psychopath.
