Charles Manson Dead At 83
Charles Manson – the mastermind of one of the worst murder sprees in American history – is dead. He was 83.
TMZ reported on Sunday that the sister of one of his victims got a call from Corcoran State Prison to tell her about the news. Other family members of his victims are also being contacted:
Debra Tate tells TMZ she received a call from the prison telling her Manson died 8:13 PM Sunday. We’re told the prison is contacting all of the victim’s families.
In 1969, a cult that Manson headed – the so-called “Manson Family” – brutally killed 5 people including actress Sharon Tate in Beverly Hills. The next day, the family killed an additional 2 people at random. Manson was serving 9 life sentences after his original death sentence was ruled unconstitutional.
