TMZ: Charles Manson dead at 83

Charles Manson passes away Prison life of 1960s cult mastermind of 'Family' murders

Cult killer Charles Manson has died at 83, according to United States officials.

TMZ has stated that the 83-year-old's death was confirmed by his sister.

Charles Manson, the notorious criminal who was held responsible for some of the most gruesome and brutal murders in California's history, is reportedly clinging to life in a hospital, according to a report.

He had been serving multiple life sentences in Corcoran State Prison in California, after being convicted in 1971 of conspiracy to commit the murder.

Manson was convicted for masterminding the 1969 murders of nine people, including pregnant actor Sharon Tate. He had been denied parole 12 times. She was subsequently murdered by members of Charles Manson's pseudo-religious sect The Family. She was heavily pregnant at the time.

Charles Manson, the murderer and cult leader, has died in a hospital in California. He got a break in the music industry when he met Beach Boys drummer Dennis Wilson.

The brutal killings began on August 9, 1969, at the home of actress Sharon Tate and her husband, famed movie director Roman Polanski.

In the Times piece, Railsback recalled discussing Manson with In Cold Blood author Truman Capote, who was starring in Murder by Death, then filming inside a nearby Warner Bros. soundstage.

The word pig was written in victim blood on the walls of one home and the front door of another. He wasn't eligible for parole for another 15 years in 2027.

Manson's death sentence was overturned when the death penalty was eradicated in California in 1972.

He grew his following in San Francisco's hippie locale Haight Ashbury in the late 1960s before leading the Manson Family into violent crime.
