Murderous Cult Leader Charles Manson Dead At 83

Murderous Cult Leader Charles Manson Dead At 83

The news was confirmed by prison authorities in California, who said the former cult leader died of natural causes.

The following night, Manson rode with several followers to a property owned by supermarket executive Leno LaBianca and his wife.

Cranston's cousin, who was about a year-and-a-half older than he, would have been about the same age as Dianne Lake, Manson's youngest devotee, when she joined his "family" at the age of 14 in 1967.

"He was the dictatorial ruler of the (Manson) family, the king, the Maharaja".

He became one of America's most infamous criminals after ordering his followers to murder actress Sharon Tate and six others in 1969. "My cousin called me first and said, 'Can you believe this?' The picture of Charlie Manson was the guy on the back of this horse". Manson took the phrase from the Beatles' song of the same name. "I was within his grasp just one year before he committed brutal murder in 1969", the "Breaking Bad" star tweeted Monday.

Senior Officer Matt Alonzo of the Santa Paula Police Department was working the incident, which took place around noon. Ford was reportedly leaving a small airport near Santa Paula, which is often used by hobby pilots.

He maintained that he was innocent and that society was the one that was guilty, the Associated Press reports. Despite the fact that he himself did not participate physically in the murders, Manson was convicted of orchestrating them. Later, all were spared death and were given life sentences after California threw out the death penalty in 1972. Another member, Charles "Tex" Watson, was convicted later. During that trial, Manson showed up in court with an "X" carved in his forehead.

During his imprisonment, Manson was incarcerated at San Quentin State Prison, the California Medical Facility, Folsom State Prison and Pelican Bay State Prison, before he was housed in the Protective Housing Unit at the Corcoran State Prison in 1989, where inmates whose safety would be endangered in the general prison population are kept.

Michele Hanisee, president of the Association of Deputy District Attorneys, reacted to the cult leader's death by quoting Bugliosi, " Manson was an evil, sophisticated con man with twisted and warped moral values.

Manson was denied parole 12 times between November 16, 1978 and April 11, 2012.
