Murderous Cult Leader Charles Manson Has Died, and People Are Very Divided About It

inally, a "celebrity" death that doesn't ruin your whole day.

Notorious cult leader and criminal Charles Manson has died at the age of 83 after spending 46 years in prison. Under Manson's orders, members of the cult-like 'Manson Family' went on a murder spree in the late 1960s. Perhaps most notably, Manson commanded his followers to kill the actress Sharon Tate (who was eight months pregnant at the time), and four other people who were at her home on August 9, 1969. The Manson Family also attempted to assassinate President Gerald R. Ford.

Manson was convicted of nine murders in 1971 and finally sentenced to life in prison in 1977.

Now, his life is over.
