Marina Elizabeth Habe

Elizabeth Habe (1951 - December 29, 1968) was the daughter of Hans Habe and a student at the University of Hawaii. She was murdered while returning home from a date.[1]She may have been slain by members of the Manson family. Her body was discovered on New Years Day 1969 in dense underbrush off Mulholland Drive, 100 feet west of Bowmont Drive, in Los Angeles, California.

Habe was abducted outside the home of her mother, actress Eloise Hardt, 8962 Cynthia Avenue, in West Hollywood. The residence was three blocks below Sunset Boulevard. The neighborhood was the location of a number of rapes in the weeks prior to Habe's demise. Habe double dated with John Hornburg, 22, a family friend. She left the Hornburg residence at 3:15 a.m. in her sports car.[2]

A former Manson family associate said that members of the family knew her.[3]

Autopsy conclusions

Los Angeles County coroner Thomas Noguchi recorded that the teenager bled to death.[4] Habe's body exhibited contusions in the eyes, slashes to the throat and heart, burns, and was nude except for a single shoe. She had been raped according to author Ed Sanders. A Los Angeles Times article disputes this conclusion.[4]


Habe was buried in Holy Cross Cemetery, Culver City following a requiem mass at Good Shepherd Roman Catholic Church in Beverly Hills. [5]
