The Manson Estate Problem: Jason Freeman
Plus the O'Neill Book: Chaos
After hearing the drips of news coming forward related to Charles Manson's will, I had to ask myself "Would you inherit the Manson estate?" Firm no due to the spook factor. Who knows what took place on these properties?
Genetics are in play here to the nth degree. Manson died in 2017 and Jason Freeman claims he is the heir by blood. He's the grandson.
According to an excerpt from the Times of San Diego (7/24/22), there is a bid by Jason Freeman active:
Under California law, when someone dies without a will, their children and grandchildren take priority over siblings when it comes to deciding beneficiaries.
Manson suffered from heart disease and other ailments before he died in November 2017 at age 83.
Manson was convicted of seven counts of first-degree murder and one count of conspiracy to 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 in his car on his way to visit an acquaintance who lived in a separate rented guest house on the Tate property.
Manson and followers Charles “Tex” Watson, Leslie Van Houten, Patricia Krenwinkel, and the late Susan Atkins all were convicted and sentenced to state prisons in 1971. Manson also was convicted in December of that year of first-degree murder for the July 25, 1969, death of Gary Hinman and the August 1969 death of Donald Shea.
Manson and the others originally were sentenced to death, but a 1972 state Supreme Court decision caused all capital sentences in California to be commuted to life in prison. There was no life-without-parole sentence at the time. Manson was denied parole a dozen times.
There has also been much discussion lately about the Family, the Manson Cult, with the release of CHAOS: Charles Manson, the CIA, and the Secret History of the Sixties. The book by Tom O'Neill (Little, Brown & Co), 2019. With Dan Piepenbring, O'Neill questions the Helter Skelter scenario argued by lead prosecutor Vincent Bugliosi in the trials and in his book Helter Skelter (1974).
