San Francisco • Bernard L. Shaw, a San Francisco police officer who served as Patty Hearst's body guard and later married her, has died at the age of 68.

Shaw, Hearst Corp.'s vice president for corporate security, died on Tuesday in Garrison, N.Y. His death was confirmed on Wednesday in a statement by Hearst President and CEO Steven R. Swartz.

Shaw was best known for his relationship with William Randolph Hearst's granddaughter. She made headlines in the 1970s for her kidnapping by a left-wing group and her later imprisonment for bank robbery.



The couple were married in 1979, after Patty Hearst's release from a 22-month sentence.

Shaw worked at Hearst Corp. for three decades.

The San Francisco Chronicle reports he is survived by his wife, Patty Hearst Shaw, four children and granddaughter.
