Cult leader Charles Manson dead: 60's mass killer breathes his last at 83

New Delhi, Nov 20 (ANI): Charles Manson, cult leader responsible for taking thousands of lives, died at the age of 83 in a California hospital on Sunday. Manson was the leader of a cult of young, rebellious runaways who followed his every instruction.

He even sent them on a killing spree in 1969 where nine people were killed. The pregnant wife of filmmaker Roman Polanski, Sharon Tate was brutally stabbed to death along with four other people in her LA home.

Manson received death penalty in the early '70s, but later his sentence was changed to life imprisonment after California scrapped executions. His imprisonment could not affect his popularity and he remained an infamous figure of interest over the decades.

Manson applied for parole a number of times since his conviction but the parole board refused his plea saying he didn't made efforts to rehabilitate himself.
