Aged 55. Murder victim of Herbert Mullin. On October 13, 1972, (some reports say October 12th) Lawrence White, a transient, was walking alone along a road in the Santa Cruz mountains when Mullin drove by. Mullin stopped, pretending to have car trouble. When White stopped and offered to help Mullin struck him down after tricking him into looking at the car engine. Mullin later claimed that White was Jonah from the Bible, and that he had sent Mullin a telepathic message saying, "Pick me up and throw me over the boat. Kill me so that others will be saved."
