Charles Manson’s Death

 Pronounced: Sunday, November 19, 2017 at 8:13 PM

Manson’s official cause of death was acute cardiac arrest, respiratory failure and metastatic colon cancer.  Cardiac arrest is considered a Heart-Attack – The sudden, unexpected loss of heart function, breathing, and consciousness.

Charles Manson, who last lived in California’s Corcoran State Prison, was hospitalized twice beginning in 2016 with undisclosed illnesses leading up to his death. Although media sources pried for as much detail and possible, officials continually cited strict medical privacy laws which prevented the release of health information for any inmate in custody. According to media site TMZ, the first incident was an emergency room visit for what was reported at that time as “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 for the severity of his condition, and over time several facts where leaked to local and national newspapers that Manson required an ‘serious operation’ to survive, which Manson originally refused. Sometime afterwards, Manson had a change of heart about the procedure needed, however, by that time, medical doctors decided Manson was too weak to undergo surgery and that the risk of death was too great and refused to operate on him.

His heath continued to deteriorate and he returned to the Bakersfield based Hospital again in January of 2017, for what was eventually leaked as a “sigmoid lesion” and “lower gastrointestinal bleeding”. His health further declined until his death on the evening of Sunday, November 19, 2017 when he was pronounced dead at 8:13 PM. The official cause of death listed on his State of California, County of Kern death certificate was “acute cardiac arrest”, “respiratory failure” and “metastatic colon cancer” Cardiac arrest which generally considered a “Heart-Attack” – The sudden, unexpected loss of heart function, breathing, and consciousness.

Upon his death a media frenzy began with Newspapers across the country littering front pages to his passing with messages that cheered the icons 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.

Aside from his physical health issues and despite his higher than average “IQ“of 121 (recorded in 1972), Manson experienced a long history of severe mental health issues, and was diagnosed with “schizophrenia” and “paranoid delusional disorder”. Since his childhood he was described as “manipulative”, “charismatic” and “controlling”. Manson also heavily used drugs such as LSD, marijuana, amphetamines and barbiturates. All of these traits suggest Manson to be a likely candidate for being a true Psychopath.
