Things That come As A Shock.

Hi,

.

At the weekend I was reading the news story about a poor guy who found out something that must have come as a most horrible shock.

.

A DJ called Matthew Roberts, now 41 years of age, was adopted as a baby in 1968.

.

He grew up with his parents in Illinois and did not find out that he was adopted until he was about ten years old.

He asked questions after that, about his biological parents and the circumstances of his birth,  but his adoptive  father would always refuse to answer any of his queries.

.

Finally, as an adult, he decided that he would like to try and find out more information about his natural parents, which is a very understandable  thing to want to do.

.

It took him twelve years of researching but eventually he found that his birth mother was still alive and living in Wisconsin.

.

She kept refusing to give him information about his father for quite a time, before finally weakening.

.

She then told him that she had been raped in 1967 during a drug-fuelled orgy.

She said that he man who had raped her was Charles Manson,.

.

This happened about two years before Manson and his followers were arrested after committing nine murders.

The cult members murders had included that of Sharon Tate, pregnant wife of film director has Roman Polanski.

.

His mother also told him that he looked a lot like his natural father.

.

The shocked man spoken about the distress he felt upon discovering this information and said that he became quite depressed because of it.

.

He ended up contacting Charles Manson, who is now 75, and in prison.

Manson did actually confirm, in rather rambling letters, that Matthew was possibly his son.

.

.

Susan Atkins, who was one of Manson’s ‘family’, died recently in a California prison at the age of 61.

She had a brain tumour.

.

In 1967 Sharon Tate and Roman Polanski were photographed in the nude by the celebrity photographer David Bailey.

This picture is due to be auctioned at Christies on the 7th of December 2009.

The work is expected to fetch between $8,000-$12,000.

.

Roman Polanski, 76, is at present in Gstaad, Switzerland.

He is at present fighting off extradition to th USA on statutory rape  charges.

He was accused of drugging and raping an underage girl at a party in 1978.

She was 13.

He was allowed bail and used that opportunity to flee to Europe.

.

His present lawyer, Lorenz Erni, is said to have arranged for bail to be set at $4.5 million dollars, on condition that Polanski stays under house arrest in his Gstaad property and does not leave the grounds.

.

Wow, sometimes a quiet, ordinary life seems like a good thing!
