Eyeglasses Left At Tate Murder Site

LOS ANGELES, Oct. 25 – The killer of actress Sharon Tate and four other persons left a pair of amber-rimmed eyeglasses at the scene of the mass murder which may lead to the assailant’s arrest, police have revealed.

Authorities have been able to reconstruct from the glasses a sketchy portrait of the murderer, Detective Lt. Robert Helder said at a news conference Thursday.

From the glasses found inside the Benedict Canyon estate leased by the actress and her husband, director Roman Polanski, police have been able to determine:
— The assailant probably is a man.
— He is from 20 to 40 years old.
— He has a small head.
— One of his ears is about a quarter of an inch lower than the other.

He is quite nearsighted and would need to replace the glasses.

Helder said there were some fingerprint smudges on the glasses, but no indentifiable “ridges'” investigators could use to trace their owner.

The glasses were intact, no blood was found on them and there was no hair caught in the frames. Helder said they were “one of the key pieces of evidence” in the murders, but he would not elaborate except to say no murder weapons had been found.

    Have been trying to find out if it was ever found who owned these glasses, did they figure it out? Was there any weight to Manson and Tex returning to the scene later on?

    Didn’t the glasses belong to George Sphan
