Charles Manson’s Death Follows Earlier Hoaxes, Speculation

Charles Manson has captured the public’s attention since he led “the Manson Family” cult in committing a series of murders in the 1960s. Most notably, the cult murdered five people, including actress Sharon Tate and her unborn baby, in August 1969.

Over the years, Charles Manson and his followers have been the subjects of rampant speculation and false or misleading reports.

False reports that Charles Manson had been granted parol circled the web in June 2017. Credible reports about pending decisions related to the release of Manson Family followers from prison likely fueled false reports of Manson’s parol. There was also a false report of Manson’s death in September 2018.

So, following years of speculation and false reports, Charles Manson died at 83 in November 2017.
