Charles Manson Died Today in California Hospital

Charles Manson, the notorious cult leader who was arrested and convicted in 1971 of conspiracy to commit murder, has died.

According to police reports, the ‘serial killer,’ who never actually killed anyone and should have realistically been released from prison decades ago, died from natural causes after a short illness hospitalized him.

“Manson was taken to the hospital approximately one month ago, and was suffering from several illnesses, including bronchitis, dementia, and colon cancer,” said Dr. Shawn Tate. “He died peacefully in his sleep at approximately 11:45am.”

Charles Manson was survived by his three sons and one daughter. Funeral arrangements are currently being made where they are expecting large crowds of supporters as well as angry protesters. The Westboro Baptist Church has already announced that they will picket the funeral, but their regular group of counter-protestors have said that “just this once” they will let it happen.
