A Family Man?

During the late 1960s Dennis met the criminal cultist Charles Manson, and became fascinated by him.  This led to Manson and some of his 'family' members living at Wilson's home for some time.  However, as Wilson began to recognise Manson's volatile and increasingly violent nature, he separated from the group by simply leaving the house and not returning.
