Charles Manson, the hippie cult leader who became the hypnotic-eyed face of evil across America after orchestrating the gruesome murders of pregnant actress Sharon Tate and six others in Los Angeles during the summer of 1969, died Sunday after nearly a half-century in prison. He was 83.
Manson is one of the most notorious murderers to walk this earth and over the years his name had become a symbol of craziness and murder. Manson died of natural causes.
TMZ was first to report on the killer’s death. The celebrity-news site reported that Debra Tate, the sister of Sharon, said she received a call from Corcoran State Prison informing her that Manson died.
Over the years, Manson never showed remorse for the killings in which he orchestrated. Often times stating he could do whatever he wanted to people as that is what had been done to him.
