We had no idea how to get to Goler Wash/Barker Ranch, only a little map we printed off the internet just before we left. We arrived at Barker at 2:00 p.m., boy were we surprised! There was a maroon SUV parked in front of the ranch, we saw three men walking around, one with a portable movie camera, they were obviously filming something.
We got out of our jeep and a large black lab ran up to us wagging his tail. A man came out and said "he's friendly" and "we'll be done shortly, but until then, please wait out here." We started talking to the man and learned it was NBC news doing a special report on Barker Ranch and they were investigating a possibility of people being killed and buried near the ranch by the Manson Family, 39 years before.
We had just read about Paul Dostie and Buster on charliemanson.com and it dawned on me, could this be them? I pointed to the dog and said "Is this Buster?" - the man said "yes" - I then said "You're the police investigator!" He said "Retired, but yes, this is my dog."
I looked towards the porch of the house and recognized Patrick Healy from NBC Los Angeles. We watched the episode being taped and when they were finished, they gave us a personal tour of the ranch and were very nice and took photos of us....below is what was taken that day...
