Charles Manson, the notorious cult leader who directed his followers to commit a string of brutal murders, and who became a symbol of the dark side of 1960s counterculture, has died aged 83.

Manson was admitted to Bakersfield hospital, California earlier this month and died of natural causes on Sunday.
In 1969, his followers, known as the Manson family, killed nine people.
Among the victims of the killing spree was heavily pregnant Hollywood actress Sharon Tate, wife of Roman Polanski.
One of Manson's young followers, Susan Atkins, stabbed Tate to death and scrawled "PIG" on the home's front door with the actress's blood.
Four other people at Tate's home were brutally stabbed to death. The next day, a wealthy couple in Los Angeles, Leno and Rosemary LaBianca, were also killed by the clan. The killings became known collectively as the Tate-LaBianca murders.
Separately Donald Shea, a Hollywood stuntman, and Gary Hinman, an acquaintance of the group, were killed by his members of the Manson family.
Manson was not at the scene of the killings, but was nonetheless convicted of murder for directing his followers in seven of the killings. He was sentenced to death in 1971.

Manson "died of natural causes at 8:13 pm (02:13 GMT Monday) on Sunday" at a hospital in Kern County, the California Department of Corrections said in a statement. He had been in custody for more than 40 years.
Tate's sister, Debra told the TMZ website that she had received a phone call from prison officials shortly after Manson's death.

You guys think foul play was involved or that he finally just kicked the bucket?

I read the backstory on him and it's shocking. He brutally murdered 2 couples that were somewhat famous and he lead a cult of women to help him. They also got charged with conspiracy. When Manson was released he had a house with over ten women trying to achieve the same thing once again. I don't understand how anyone could ever have a mindset like that.

The was a terrible man, if you ask me but many people still seem to look up to him as if he is a legend and or a god, which I don't think is right or correct but I do think that those whom believe in him should be able to as long as they don't begin to follow him in the sense of killing or possibly killing others.
But those are just my thoughts on his situation and those who follow him.
