Ruth Ann Moorehouse, also known as Ouisch, was an early member of the Manson family. She met Manson in ’67 when her father picked up Manson, Fromme and Brunner hitchhiking and brought them home.

During the Tate/LaBianca murder trial Ruth tried to poison prosecution witness and fellow Manson family member Barbara Hoyt.
Barbara was unsure about testifying and the family offered Hoyt an all expense paid trip to Hawaii if Barbara agreed not to testify. Barbara agreed.

Ruth and Barbara took the trip to Hawaii where Ruth laced Barbara’s hamburger with ten hits of LSD. Barbara survived and was determined to testify against the family.

Ruth along with four other family members were charged with attempted murder. The charge was later reduced to conspiracy to dissuade a witness from testifying. In ’71 the five family members were given a 90 day jail sentence. Ruth, almost 9 months pregnant, failed to appear at the sentencing hearing and fled to her sister to avoid giving birth in jail. Ruth never served her sentence.

  1. Dear Ruth, hope you remember me (Joel Romero) we had fun for a short time in eighth grade, Judy Felders Birthday party you wore a dark blouse with a bunny on it . Time ran out and you went to Westmont and i went to Blackford , I always wondered what could have happened if i had kept in touch . It sounds like your enjoying life and that makes me feel good . I am on Facebook if you care to say hi.But for now take care …oh you were cute as a bunny i will never forget.

  2. Ruthie, If you get this, remember that you have friends from your ‘new’ life. Haven’t seen you for almost 40 years. I remember a warm, wonderful lady.I hope you’ve found peace and happiness. Be safe. Hugs, Bob. (Bob from the Country House)

  3. I hope Ruth Ann still goes to this website and sees this post. I want to say to her not to rack herself with so much guilt. She was just a kid then and it’s tough to avoid things when you don’t have a real strict dad, even when you have one!
    She’s paid her debt with 45 years of guilt and building a family.
    It’s time to let her live free.
