Manson was a notorious leader of his Manson Family cult, which murdered Sharon Tate, an actress and other six people in 1969. The statement released by the California Department of Corrections says that, “Inmate Charles Manson 83, died of natural causes at 8:13 p.m. on Sunday, November 19, 2017, at a Kern County hospital.”
In the mid of November, Manson was returned to hospital after being previously hospitalized in January. then he was moved out of the Corcoran State Prison, where he served nine life sentences denying paroles for 12 times.
It was reported earlier that he was supposed to undergo a surgery, but was considered as too risky. Manson had been prisoned since he was arrested in December 1969 cited for the Tate-LaBianca murders. He was sentenced for the conspiracy to perpetrate the slayings that took place in August 1969, one day after the next.
Debra Tate, a sister of Manson family’s one of the victims – actress Sharon Tate, said that, “One could say I’ve forgiven them, which is quite different then forgetting what they are capable of. It is for this reason I fight so hard to make sure that each of these individuals stays in prison until the end of their natural days.”
