Deranged madman Charles Manson is getting married, if you believe a 25-year-old supporter of the imprisoned killer.
“I’ll tell you straight up, Charlie and I are going to get married,” a woman Manson has named ‘Star’ says in the most recent issue of Rolling Stone.
“When that will be, we don’t know. But I take it very seriously. Charlie is my husband. Charlie told me to tell you this.”
Manson, as most of you know, was convicted in Los Angeles in 1971 for conspiracy to commit multiple murders, including that of actress Sharon Tate.
Manson, now 79, has a history of dodging death, but he’s been married twice.
He and three members of the “Manson Family” were given the death penalty, but the sentences were reduced to life without parole after the California Supreme Court outlawed capital punishment in 1972. California reinstated the death penalty in 1978, but the sentences of Manson and his followers were not changed.
Sirhan Sirhan, sentenced to death for the 1968 assassination of U.S. Sen. Robert Kennedy also had his sentence commuted to life in prison.
Rolling Stone says Star first heard of Manson while a teenager in Illinois. She spent most of her high school years locked in her room “smoking marijuana, eating mushrooms, not [wanting] to go to church every Sunday.”
A “friend” gave her some of Manson’s rants about saving the environment and she started writing him letters. At age 19 she hopped a bus and moved to California so she could visit him regularly in Corcoran State Prison and run a website featuring the latest Manson news.
When the Rolling Stone writer told Star she looked a lot like Manson follower Susan Atkins, who Manson dubbed “Sexy Sadie” after hearing the Beatles song, she didn’t like the comparison.
“That [bleep] was [bleeping] crazy,” she said. “She was a crazy [bleeping] whore. She didn’t know what she was doing.”
Manson, writer of the song “Garbage Dump,” sang a familiar refrain when asked about the pending nuptials.
“That’s a bunch of garbage. You know that, man. That’s trash. We’re just playing that for public consumption.”
Fortunately for humanity, there will be no little Mansons in Star’s future. California does not allow “lifers” to have conjugal visits.
