Charles Manson dead at 83; here’s why his health crisis was shrouded in secrecy


On Sunday evening at 8:13 p.m., crazed killer Charles Manson died of natural causes at a Kern County hospital. He was 83 years old. His next parole hearing was scheduled for 2027.

In 1971, Manson and the other members of his “family” were convicted of killing pregnant actress Sharon Tate and six other people. Since he’s been imprisoned he’s incurred more than 100 rules violations: assault, repeated possession of a weapon, threatening staff, possessing a cellphone, spitting in guards’ faces, throwing hot coffee at a prison staffer, trying to cause a flood and setting his mattress on fire.

He was also briefly “engaged” to Afton Elaine Burton, a 26-year-old Manson devotee who had faithfully visited him in prison for seven years.

“Local law enforcement in Bakersfield confirmed Wednesday that he had been hospitalized, but state prison officials had declined to comment on his condition, citing federal and state medical privacy laws…

This marked the second time Manson, an inmate at Corcoran State Prison, was hospitalized this year. In January, he spent several days in a Bakersfield hospital. The prison system would not comment on his condition, but sources at the time said he had a ‘serious’ illness.

Given Manson’s crimes and his numerous problems as a prisoner, it was likely significant security measures were employed. But officials would not comment. When Manson was hospitalized in January, several prison officials were seen at the hospital.”1

Michele Hanisee, president of the Association of Deputy District Attorneys, issued a statement Sunday saying, in part, “Today, Manson’s victims are the ones who should be remembered and mourned on the occasion of his death.”2

We hope his death will bring the family members of his victims, the closure they have needed and deserved all these years.

    I offer that the two pics at beginning are not the same guy, look at the x on forehead, even if he drew the lines to make it a swastika, they do not match in the pics, x in first pic small at bottom and large at top, not so in 2nd pic, how does anyone manipulate that.. c’mon. Features of face do not match either. ‘Whell’, mehbeh he had tatoo removed from younger years and redone, or hey maybe it just doesn’t matter, no one is paying attention anyway 🙁 World on End.

    The X was just a scratch he put there to show how he was a non-person being railroaded by the evil forces of government. He then had a prison tattoo of a swastika placed there once he knew he was going to be in jail for a long time. Having been a jail bird all his life he new the skinheads would keep the black inmates from killing him… He was a true Nazi who once said that “Hitler was just a tuned in guy who leveled the karma of the Jews”. Charley was pure evil.
