Early life

Born in Minnesota to a Lutheran pastor, she was the only surviving child of four; two of her siblings died of a kidney disorder and a third of congenital heart disease.[2]

Hall moved to Los Angeles in 1968. She lived there for three years, surviving on a small income from her art sales, before moving to Berkeley, where she fell in love with her upstairs neighbor, Patricia Soltysik, to whom she gave the name "Mizmoon".

LA Shootout

Hall died in a shootout (May 17, 1974) with police in which five other SLA members were killed. As their hideout burned, Hall and fellow SLA member Nancy Ling Perry exited out of the back door. Police claimed that Perry came out firing a revolver while Hall fired an automatic pistol. Police shot them both immediately. Perry was shot twice; one shot hit her right lung, the other shot severing her spine. Hall was shot once in the forehead. Investigators working for her parents claimed that Perry had come walking out of the house intending to surrender.[3]
