Bat­tle over body of Charles Man­son won by his grand­son

The Courier & Advertiser (Angus and The Mearns Edition) - - NEWS -

A grand­son of cult leader Charles Man­son has won a bizarre Cal­i­for­nia court bat­tle for the killer’s corpse.

Ja­son Free­man of Florida can col­lect the re­mains of Man­son from the morgue in Bak­ers­field, a Kern County Su­pe­rior Court com­mis­sioner ruled on Mon­day.

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

He had been serv­ing a life sen­tence in prison for or­ches­trat­ing the 1969 killings of preg­nant ac­tress Sharon Tate and eight oth­ers.

The fight for Man­son’s re­mains was waged be­tween Free­man, a man who claims he was fa­thered by Man­son be­fore his fol­low­ers car­ried out the heinous slay­ings, and a pen pal who col­lects so-called Man­son mem­o­ra­bilia.

Grand­son Ja­son Free­man.

Charles Man­son.
