Manson Murder Victim. He was the oldest of three children born to Robert and Frances Hinman. He had two younger sisters. He was born in Grand Junction, Colorado, but grew up in Fort Collins, CO, and attended Colorado university in the mid-1950s. He was married in 1959 and soon after moved to the Los Angeles area. He and his then-wife attended UCLA University where he was involved in the music and dance program, playing piano for their group in various performances they had. Gary was a multi-instrumentalist, playing the piano, bagpipes, drums, guitar, and trombone. He was also involved with a Buddhist group where he had found peace in his life. Gary's regular job was a music teacher and he taught students at his house part-time to earn extra income. His favorite instrument to play was the piano. He had a baby grand piano in his living room. Gary loved to travel and had planned a trip to Japan, but was killed before he could go. Gary lived life to its fullest and would have started a job in the sociology field where he would have continued his work in public service. He loved helping people and he was a generous and kind man. As with the Tate and La Bianca residences the week after his murder, a message was scrawled in blood on a wall. Paw prints (symbolic of the Black Panthers) were put next to the phrase "political piggy." Official cause of death was "stab wound to chest."
