A new photo of the 74 year old Charles Manson has been released by the California Department of Corrections, updating their files on prisoners. Nearly 40 years after the brutal murders of the then pregnant Sharon Tate and blaming the Beatles song Helter Skelter, Charles Manson is still serving a life sentence. And by the look of him, it won’t be too long now before he’s out of prison (read: dead).
Opposed to other celebrities who become popular in Hollywood yet never seem to age, Charles Manson certainly shows his age, and I’ve grabbed a few other photos to let you see the progression.
And for those of you who don’t remember how he got that fashionable swastika on his forehead, during his trial, Charles Manson carved an X into his own flesh. As the years wore on, he added to it, morphing it into its present form.
Personally I’m of the mind they should have been done with Charles Manson years ago with a quick trip down death row, but as the years have wore on he’s become a bit of a cultural phenomenon. And were he put down years ago we probably wouldn’t have such other morbid cultural phenoms like Marilyn Manson, making the need for the death penalty even more necessary in my world view.
