SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Bernard L. Shaw, Patty Hearst Shaw's husband and Hearst Corporation's vice president for corporate security, died Tuesday in Garrison, N.Y. He was 68.
Shaw's death was confirmed in a statement Wednesday by Steven R. Swartz, the president and CEO of Hearst, where Shaw had worked for three decades.
Shaw was born in San Francisco and was a city police officer for 15 years.
But he was perhaps better known for his relationship to his wife, William Randolph Hearst's granddaughter, who made headlines in the 1970s for her kidnapping by a left-wing group and her later imprisonment for bank robbery.
The couple was married in 1979, after Patty's release from a 22-month sentence.
The San Francisco Chronicle reports (http://bit.ly/18Sw8ba ) that Shaw is survived by his wife, four children and one granddaughter.
