The 83-year-old spent the last 48 years of his life behind bars.

    Charles Manson, 'Helter Skelter' mass murderer, dies at 83
    Charles Manson, a small-time car thief with wild eyes, had the monstrous ability to bend followers to unspeakable evil. He used that ability to remake himself into perhaps the most notorious mass murderer in California history, terrorizing Southern California in 1969 with a string of nine savage slayings - including that of a promising young actress named Sharon Tate - that earned him a death sentence and made his name synonymous with depraved wickedness.
