Just keeping with the theme of the threads Professor Horan created for the Arliss Perry topic.
In 2016, a gentleman by the name of Brian McCracken emerged and gave an interview to the New York Post claiming he was a witness to seeing perhaps Arlis Perry on the altar of the Stanford University church prior to her unfortunate end. Supposedly he was passing by the church around midnight on October 13th, 1974 and saw a young woman (supposedly Arlis) and a musician in an afro wig playing a flute.
The woman seemed to be fine and even gave a smile. Why it took McCracken 42 years to come forward with this, seemed odd at the time. This was before the Steve Crawford attempted arrest/suicide in 2018.
Here is the original New York Post article interview with Brian McCracken:
Also, Ed Opperman did an interview with McCracken on his show back when the Post story broke. McCracken seems to be articulate and straight forward in the interview and not seeking publicity.
Here is the Ed Opperman interview with Brian McCracken:
The last piece here, and as Professor Horan's good buddy Jon Mitchell would say in his great Son of Sam book, here are some "Other Items of Interest (Hint, Hint)". See specifically the comments section:

Thanks! Yeah, David Lang is the guy McCracken's talking about. I have zero idea how much cred McCracken's story has, but I know someone who probably knows Lang. Let's see what we find out...I sort of maybe believe the gist of McCracken's story for one reason: I think Arlis went there voluntarily, and was playing along with something that suddenly took a turn she didn't expect. It would have been really, really important for "them" to believe she was a "willing" sacrifice. If McCracken was making something up, consciously or not, it would have been more "I heard screams, blah, blah, blah," not "It looked like the broad was playing along with whatever goofy shit these guys wanted her to do." And I believe him for another reason: Look at the stuff Lang composes music for ALL THE TIME. I don't think it's the least bit farfetched to think he may have volunteered to play some "Pan pipes" kind of music for some goofy occult brouhaha for some hippie friends. Oh, and I'll be credits to navy beans Lang knows Kenneth Anger, Robert Mapplethorpe, John Cage...
Oh, and a commenter on that blogspot thread mentions something about a "human sacrifice out by the rock quarry..." Does anyone know what he's talking about?
RE: "Oh, and a commenter on that blogspot thread mentions something about a "human sacrifice out by the rock quarry..." Does anyone know what he's talking about?"
He could be referring to the Leslie Perlov murder by Getreu where her body/car was found near a quarry. Although that was not considered a "human sacrifice" or nothing has been attributed to that effect.
