American noted family, the granddaughter of William Randolph Hearst and heir to the publishing empire founded by him.
On 2/04/1974, she was kidnapped from the home she shared with fiancé Steven Weed by the SLA (Simbionese Liberation Army) , a terrorist group, who announced that she was a prisoner of war. After spending several weeks in a closet she was
effectively brain washed until she joined her captors. She emerged as Tania, a full-fledged member of the group. Two months later, she was photographed carrying a carbine as part of the SLA holdup team robbing a San Francisco bank. The gang was basically destroyed in May 1974 when six members were trapped in a Los Angeles house and burned out. All six were killed. Hearst went underground until she was captured on 9/18/1975 and given seven years in prison. Two years later the sentence was commuted and she was freed 1/30/1978.
Hearst married her bodyguard, Bernard Shaw in April 1978. In the next decade she took her place as a vice-president with the Hearst corporation. She and Shaw live in New York city with their two kids, where she is active in charities and dabbles in acting. She has appeared in four films, including "Cry-Baby," 1990 and in "Serial Mom," 1994.
A suspicious package was delivered to her home 2/18/1998 that contained marijuana. She called local police, but two Drug Enforcement Officers showed up for questioning after being tipped off by UPS that the box contained narcotics. After an hour of questioning, the officials say there is no-evidence linking between the box and Hearst or her husband and the episode was just labeled as "a mystery."
Her dad, the fifth and last son of William Randolph, died at a New York hospital on 12/18/2000 at age 85.
