Charles Manson is NOT dead, despite many on the internet falling for yet another online death hoax. The infamous serial killer became a trending Twitter topic on Tuesday when an unreliable media outlet wrongly reported that he had been found dead in his prison cell, but its 100 percent not true.
For more than 40 years, Manson has been serving a life-sentence for his part in forming a cult and instructing its members to carry out a series of murders. This week, a website called Now 8 News claimed that Manson had been found dead in his Corcoran State Prison cell early Monday morning. According to the misinformed report, prison guards approached Mansons cell after hearing strange noises and discovered him on the ground with a slit throat.
The site even included a fake transcript of a supposed suicide note, which had lines like, I am immortal. My body may lay here right now, but in less than 24 hours I will rise from the dead just like the great Lazarus, exactly like Jesus because I am God! There is a back-and-forth debate happening on Twitter as people seem unsure what to believe in regards to Mansons alleged condition, but Gossip Cop can confirm that he is still very much alive.
Manson did not commit suicide in his prison cell, despite a completely made-up story resulting in yet another widespread internet death hoax. And, regardless of the person involved, Gossip Cop still wishes that these awful hoaxes would die out.
well OK then he is available to be drafted for Pres by the Democrats...bet they are relieved.
Thanks for the report correcting the mistaken or fraudulent report. The error represents the need for care in accepting every news source. It is a shame that the MSM abused their privileged status over the years as they at least provided some credibility. Today it is hard to evaluate a source’s credibility.
He would never commit suicide - he’s been in jail 3/4 of his life. Where he was born too, I think.
Charlie not dead?
Aw, too bad.
He should have died 40 years ago.
For more than 40 years, Manson has been serving a life-sentence for his part in forming a cult and instructing its members to carry out a series of murders.
Finally, someone gets it right. Manson didn’t personally kill anyone. He just commanded his “family” to do it.
Clinton/Manson has a nice ring to it...
He wouldn’t be substantially any different that Her Heinous..........................
Damn shame too.
This guy should have been pushed overboard 40 years or more ago.
It always amazes me that people like him, the Castro brothers and other evil people just seem to go on and on, while good people die early...........................
Some of whom are still around:
Actually, I think he died about 40 years ago. Dead in sin.
Don't laugh. If Manson were to run for President, there would be a "healthy" contingent, mostly Democrats and other fringe political parties, that would pull for him.
It was posted in FR, and I immediately suspected it was fake, because no other news sites were reporting it.
While there is life, there is hope..................
He soon will be.
That may be true, but nowadays you can’t really tell...................
The reports of my death are greatly exaggerated..............Mark Twain..............
