17. "California's Love Cult Bombing," Official Detective Stories (March 1959)

By this point, I had amassed a good number of documents regarding Krishna Venta. The problem for a historian like me, though, was that everything I possessed was a secondary source document, i.e., written by someone based upon facts received from someone else.

Not knowing where exactly to turn, I wrote to one of the myriad of historical societies in California. They were kind enough to forward to me a bundle of newspaper articles, many of which concerned the bombing of December 1958.

Also among the items sent was an article by J.P. McFarland from the March 1959 issue of Official Detective Stories entitled "California's Love Cult Bombing." I anticipate I will discuss this story at some point.
