Charles Milles Manson (Cincinnati, Ohio, November 12, 1934-Bakersfield, California, November 19, 2017) was a famous American criminal and musician, known for leading what became known as «The Manson Family» , a group of followers of Manson who emerged in the desert of California in the late 60s. In 1971, he was convicted of conspiracy for the murders of seven people: actress Sharon Tate and four others at Tate’s house in Beverly Hills, and the next day, from a marriage, Leno and Rosemary LaBianca, all carried out by the group members, who followed instructions from Manson. His followers murdered different people at other times, and Manson was also convicted of two of these other murders: the murders of Gary Hinman and Donald Shorty Shea.

Manson believed in what he himself called Helter Skelter, a term he borrowed from the song “Helter Skelter” by the band The Beatles. Manson interpreted that the song spoke of a hypothetical racial war between blacks and targets that, according to him, approached. The title of the song appeared written with blood in the scene of one of the crimes ordered by Manson. He believed that the murders could help precipitate such racial war. In the United States, Charles Manson has been mythologized as an emblem of madness, violence and the macabre. The term Helter Skelter was later used by Manson’s prosecutor, Vincent Bugliosi, as the title of the book he wrote about the Manson murders.

By the time “The Manson Family” began to form, Manson was an ex-convict who had spent half his life in correctional institutions for a variety of crimes. Before the murders, he was an underground musician in Los Angeles, mainly thanks to his casual association with Dennis Wilson, drummer and co-founder of The Beach Boys. After Manson was charged with the crimes of which he was later convicted, recordings of songs written and performed by him were published. Several musicians have been inspired by Manson to compose songs or have made versions of some of their songs, among them Guns N ‘Roses, White Zombie, Devendra Banhart, System of a Down, Scars on Broadway and Marilyn Manson.

Manson was sentenced to death, but the decision was automatically commuted to life imprisonment when a California Supreme Court decision temporarily eliminated the death penalty in the state in 1972. Manson was incarcerated at Corcoran State Prison , California since 1989 and died in 2017, due to natural causes at the age of 83.

Charles Manson’s Biography

First years

The son of a 16-year-old unmarried girl named Kathleen Maddox (1918-1973), Charles Manson was born in the General Hospital of Cincinnati, Ohio. His full name is Charles Milles Maddox . After his birth, his mother, who was briefly married to a worker named William Manson, gave him this surname. His biological father appears to have been a colonel named Walker Scott, against whom Kathleen Maddox filed a paternity suit that led to a trial agreed in 1937. Possibly, Charles Manson never met his biological father.

Many details about Manson’s early life are controversial, due to the variety of different stories that have been offered to the media, many of which turned out to be false. Manson’s mother was supposedly an alcoholic. According to Manson, his mother once sold him for a pitcher of beer to a waitress without children, so that his uncle could then retrieve the child a few days later.

When Manson’s mother and brother were sentenced to five years in prison for stealing at a service station in 1939 in Charleston, West Virginia, Manson went to his aunt and uncle’s house in McMechen, West Virginia. In 1947, Kathleen Maddox tried to take Manson to an orphanage, but could not because there were no places. The court placed Manson at “Gibault School for Boys” in Terre Haute, Indiana, a school for homeless children. After ten months, Manson escaped to return to the maternal home, but his mother rejected him.

First arrest

It is known that his first armed robbery was in 1947, at the age of thirteen, and that he robbed a grocery store. After this incident, Manson was locked up in a reformatory from which he escaped four days later with another boy. On the way, Manson and his friend committed two other crimes at gunpoint. In 1951, after a series of arrests and escapes, Charles Manson was sent to prison for driving a stolen vehicle. By the end of 1952, there were already eight charges against him. He was transferred to another prison and released in 1954 for good behavior. In 1954, at the age of nineteen, Manson married Rosalie Jean Willis, a seventeen-year-old nurse. She would have her first child with her.

Second arrest

He was arrested again later for vehicle theft. In 1958, he was provisionally released, but was arrested again in 1961 for falsifying checks. A short time later, already divorced from his first wife, he marries the prostitute Candy “Leona” Stevens. From that marriage is born Charles Luther Manson, his second known son. Manson had spent most of his adult life in prison, mainly for vehicle theft and fraud, although he was also accused of procuring.

At that time, and again in prison, he began his esoteric training and his interest in oriental philosophy.
