    • Archie: Is it just me, or does she sound like she's in love with him?
      Nick: Maybe she's a murder groupie. Manson, the Night Stalker... they all had them.

      Charles Manson was convicted in the 1969 murder of Sharon Tate and sentenced to death; his groupies assisted him in the murder (and were also convicted); he also had an extended "family" of groupies who showed their support in court and intimidated witnesses.

      Richard Ramirez, known as the Night Stalker, was convicted in the 1985 murders of 13 people, and sentenced to death; his groupies came to court during his trial on a daily basis to show support.
