Así está Charles Manson hoy

Fotografía actual del lider del clan. A los 74 años se lo ve calvo, con una tupida barba gris.
Según el portavoz del Departamento Correccional y de Rehabilitación de California, Seth Unger, la misma fue tomada como parte de una rutina de actualización en el archivo de reclusos de la Prisión Estatal de Corcorán, donde Manson -que ya tiene 74 años- cumple su condena a cadena perpetua por conspirar el asesinato de siete personas en 1969.La imagen fue publicada por el periódico Los Angeles Times y en ella se lo ve calvo, con una espesa barba, y su "look" actual impacta ya que deja ver aún más el tatuaje de la esvástica que tiene en la frente. Manson fue coacusado y condenado a muerte junto a Susan Atkins, Leslie Van Houten, Patricia Krenwinkel y Charles "Tex" Watson por urgir y llevar a cabo el asesinato de siete personas entre quiene se encontraban la estrella de cine Sharon Tate, y la heredera del café Abigail Folger. Sus condenas fueron conmutadas por la de cadena perpetua cuando en 1972 la pena de muerte fue brevemente prohibida en los Estados Unidos.
