People who were born after Charles Manson led his followers to commit the famous murders of Sharon Tate and several others know of the man who died in prison on November 19, 2017. He is known for being a cult leader in the 1960s. Manson is also known for his hypnotic stare. Prison officials released a statement a few hours after he died, claiming that he passed away of natural causes at the age of 83.
Manson impressed his heinous ideas on his followers in 1969 when seven people were murdered. The news of the murders reached all areas of the world as people couldn’t believe that such a violent act had taken place in Los Angeles. His cult group was known as the Manson Family. Most of Manson’s followers are still in prison, but there have been a few released on parole or who have died since the murders.
When the Manson trial was over, he was sentenced to spend nine life sentences in prison after initially being sentenced to death. California overturned the death penalty, which resulted in Manson spending time in prison. He has been up for parole 12 times, and he has been denied each time. Although Manson never physically killed anyone, he was found guilty of the murders because he orchestrated them and led his cult family to carry out the murders. The Manson family entered the home of Sharon Tate in August 1969. Tate was murdered, but her husband, Roman Polanski, wasn’t home at the time, or he would have likely been murdered as well. Tate was eight months pregnant when she was murdered. Four other people in the home were killed. The next night, the family went to the home of Leno LaBianca and killed him and his wife. After the murders were committed, the family wrote “pig” in blood on the walls of a home and on the door of another home. Manson started his family because he wanted to draw attention to the Black Panthers in the hope that they would be blamed for the crime. There is no report of where Manson will be buried or what his funeral will be like.
