Notorious cult leader Charles Manson in a recent note wrote “I’m not in the best spot to rest in peace.” He signed the handwritten note with his signature.
It seems the recently deceased 83-year-old may not rest in peace after all. This is because his body remains unclaimed at the coroner’s office in Kern County, California.
Charles Manson Leaves Personal Estate to Prison Pen-Pal in Will
This development is against the discovery that the infamous cult leader left all his estate to his long-term pen-pal in his will. The prison penpal of over 20 years does not wish to be named.
It is not known whether the prison pen-pal would step forward to claim his body for burial.
Manson’s Grandson Unable to Bury Him
Charles Manson’s grandson who has identified with him in life and death, Jason Freeman, reportedly lost his job two days before Manson died at a Kern County hospital of natural causes.
Freeman is now reportedly strapped of cash to travel to California to claim the body of his grandfather for the burial he believes the former cult leader deserves.
Gofundme Campaign to Raise Money for Manson’s Funeral Shut Down
Freeman’s friends created a Gofundme campaign to raise an initial $15,000 to help him travel to California to claim his grandfather’s body.
But Gofundme snatched down the campaign for unknown reasons, vowing the refund donations already received back to donors.
Freeman’s friends had earlier written for the campaign:
“We will not sit back and let them throw Mr. Manson away like trash. His whole life he lived with the pain of feeling unclaimed. We must not let this happen in death. Together we can help Jason bring his grandfather home and prove to the world Charles WAS LOVED & WILL BE CLAIMED.”
How this will happen for Freeman remains to be seen since he is now jobless and his fundraising campaign deleted.
