Charles Manson’s Age, Bio
Charles Manson was born on November 12, 1934, in Cincinnati, Ohio, United States. He was an American citizen and his zodiac sign was Scorpio. His birth name was Charles Milles Manson.
Manson’s mother, Kathleen Maddox, was a prostitute and was just sixteen years old when she gave birth to him. Initially, he was named “no name Maddox.” Later, after Kathleen married William Manson, a laborer, they named their new child Charles Milles Maddox.
Kathleen filed a bastardy suit against his biological father, Colonel Walker Scott, but Manson had to live with his aunt in McMechen, West Virginia after police delayed his mother’s arrest for robbery in 1939. After Kathleen’s acquittal in 1942, she regained custody of Manson and they lived together in hotel rooms.
However, Manson was eventually sent to Gibault School for Boys in Terre Haute, Indiana, but he ran away after ten months to be with his mother. Unfortunately, she refused to take responsibility for him.
On January 1, 2017, Manson was taken to Mercy Hospital in downtown Bakersfield, California, from the California State Prison in Corcoran due to gastrointestinal bleeding. However, he was too weak to undergo surgery, so he returned to jail on January 6. On November 15, 2017, it was reported that he was hospitalized in Bakersfield due to health issues, and he passed away on November 19, 2017, due to natural causes.
