Charles Manson's grandson wins bizarre battle over cult leader's body

Charles Manson's grandson wins bizarre battle over cult leader's body”

Charles Manson, the cult leader who sent followers known as the "Manson Family" out to commit gruesome murders, now being held at California State Prison, Corcoran, California, U.S.is seen in this August 2017 photo released on November 16, 2017.

Freeman didn't immediately comment but previously said he would cremate and spread the ashes of Manson and put to rest "this so-called monster, this historical figure that shouldn't have been blown up as big as it was for all these years".

Apparently that won't be happening.

A man claiming to be the grandson of the infamous USA cult leader Charles Manson has won a battle for his remains, after months of deliberation in a California court.

Share this article: Charles Manson was convicted of the first-degree murders of nine people, and conspiracy to commit murder.

"We plan to do a private service for close friends and family, " Freeman said. "If a grandson can't say he loves his grandfather the world's pretty messed up".

Manson, who died at 83, had been hospitalized in Bakersfield while serving a life sentence for orchestrating the 1969 killings of pregnant actress Sharon Tate and eight others.

Manson was originally given the death penalty but it was ruled unconstitutional in California in 1972.

Manson applied for and was denied parole 12 times during his 45 years in prison.

Manson's body has been on ice since he died in November in a Bakersfield hospital.

A court in Kern County, California, made the decision Monday, about four months after Manson's death.

Michael Brunner, the son of Manson Family member Mary Brunner, also tried to claim the body, alleging to be Manson's son. "No sufficient probative evidence was provided to this court to refute Freeman's claim", she said in a court ruling.

Channels - a friend of Manson's - owns the rights to his estate.

That left Freeman, whose father was Jay White, one of Manson's three known children. Unable to deal with the burden and impact of his infamous father, White killed himself in 1993 with a gunshot to the head.

Manson was convicted of seven counts of first-degree murder and one count of conspiracy to commit murder in the deaths of Tate, the La Biancas and four other people at the Tate residence - coffee heiress Abigail Ann Folger, photographer Wojciech Frykowski, hairdresser Jay Sebring and Steven Earl Parent, who was shot and killed in his auto on his way to visit an acquaintance who lived in a separate rented guest house on the Tate property. "I'm not only doing this for me", Jason Freeman told Rolling Stone.

Most of the people vying for the body have said they would cremate it, though Freeman's attorney balked at that suggestion when Deputy Kern County Counsel Bryan Walters suggested at hearing last week that the coroner could cremate the body and allow the parties to continue their court fight over the ashes.
