Charles Manson DEAD at 83

Charles Manson “died of natural causes at 8:13 pm on Sunday” at a hospital in Kern County, the California Department of Corrections said in a statement. He had been in custody for over 4 decades, since his arrest in December 1969 for the Tate-LaBianca murders.

As we reported last week, Manson was taken from prison to Bakersfield hospital in an emergency and his condition was deteriorating. Manson suffered intestinal bleeding earlier this year, yet could not get surgery cause he was too weak.

Manson has been serving a life sentence since his followers were convicted of killing actress Sharon Tate, Leno and Rosemary LaBianca and 4 other people during a bloody rampage in the Los Angeles area in August 1969.

Manson labeled the murders after the Beatles song “Helter Skelter.” One of Manson’s young followers, Susan Atkins, stabbed Tate to death and scrawled “PIG” on the home’s front door with the actress’s blood.

Manson was not at the scene of either slayings, however he was convicted of murder for directing his followers and was sentenced to death in 1971.

  1. He was so evil, he should have died long ago. Too bad our taxes had to pay for the slimy character for so long. Many of us resent that! We hope those women NEVER get out of jail, wherever they are.

  2. Good riddance — too bad we had to pay our hard-earned taxes for him to live so long. But, we hope those women who killed will stay in prison the rest of their lives. Worst crime we can remember, ruthless, mindful killers.
