Vincent T. Bugliosi, Jr. (August 18, 1934 - June 6, 2015) was an American attorney and New York Times bestselling author. During his eight years in the Los Angeles County district attorney's office, he was best known for prosecuting Charles Manson and other defendants accused of the seven Tate-LaBianca murders of August 9-10, 1969.
