Charles Manson Death Pronounced Sunday, November 19, 2017 at 8:13 PM

Charles Manson death

On November 19, 2017, Charles Manson died in California’s Corcoran State Prison

Charles Manson was hospitalized twice beginning in 2016 with undisclosed illnesses leading up to his death. Although media sources pried for details, officials cited strict medical privacy laws preventing the release of health information for inmates. According to media site TMZ, the first incident was an emergency room visit for “gastrointestinal issues.” He returned to prison a few days later.

With news swirling of Manson’s health issues, a firestorm of media attention created pressure for the release of details about his condition. Over time local and national newspapers learned that Manson required a ‘serious operation’ to survive, which Manson originally refused. Sometime afterwards, Manson had a change of heart. However, by then Manson was too weak to undergo surgery and the risk of death was too great. Thus, doctors refused to operate on him.

His health continued to deteriorate. In January 2017 he returned to the Bakersfield-based hospital for a “sigmoid lesion” and “lower gastrointestinal bleeding.” His health further declined until his death on the evening of Sunday, November 19, 2017 at 8:13 PM. The official cause of death was “acute cardiac arrest,” “respiratory failure” and “metastatic colon cancer.” 

“Death is psychosomatic.” — Charles Manson

Upon his death newspapers across the country seemingly cheered over Manson’s demise. For instance, the New York Daily News published a front cover spread that read, “BURN IN HELL, Bloodthirsty cult leader Manson dies at 83.” Other newspapers followed suit with titles such as “EVIL DEAD. Make room, Satan, Charles Manson is finally going to hell” – New York Post.

Four months after the death of Manson, his cremated remains were scattered along the California hillside. Friends old and were in attendance, including Family Member and longtime Manson supporter Sandy Good.
