During the Tate/LaBianca murder trial Ruth Ann Moorehouse 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.

Barbara died on December 3, 2017 due to kidney failure.
