Killer and Cult Leader Charles Manson Dead at 83

Charles Manson, the California drifter-turned-cult leader responsible for a string of murders that cast a dark pall over the summer of 1969, died Sunday night in a Kern County Hospital. He was 83.

Debra Tate, the sister of actress Sharon Tate, one of Manson’s most famous victims, received a call from Corcoran State Prison telling her Manson died at 8:13 PM.

While Manson died of natural causes, Tate knew he had been sick for a long time and was “expecting” this. 

Manson was recently taken to Bakersfield Hospital where he was being treated for intestinal bleeding since January. Surgery was recommended but it was later deemed too risky.
