New photo shows an aging Charles Manson at age 77


California prison officials have released a new photo of serial killer Charles Manson.

The photos show Manson, 77, with long, gray hair and a beard. It released at the request of CNN in advance of an April 11 parole hearing.

Manson and other members of his so-called family were convicted of killing actress Sharon Tate and six other people during a bloody rampage in the Los Angeles area during two August nights in 1969. Prosecutors said that Manson and his followers were trying to incite a race war that he believed was prophesied in the Beatles' song "Helter Skelter."

Tate, the wife of director Roman Polanski, was 8 1/2 months pregnant when she was killed at her hilltop home in Benedict Canyon on Aug. 9, 1969. Besides Tate, four others were stabbed and shot to death including Jay Sebring, 35; Voytek Frykowski, 32; Abigail Folger, 25, a coffee heiress; and Steven Parent, 18, a friend of Tate's caretaker. The word "Pig" was written on the front door in blood.

The next night, Manson rode along with his so-called family members to the Los Feliz home of Leno and Rosemary LaBianca, then left three of them to commit the murders. "Death to pigs" was written on a wall, and "Healter Skelter," which was misspelled, on the refrigerator door.

Manson was also convicted of the earlier murder of musician Gary Hinman in his Topanga Canyon home, and the slaying of former stuntman Donald "Shorty" Shea at the Spahn movie ranch in Chatsworth, where Manson had his commune.

Manson initially was sentenced to death. A 1972 ruling by the California Supreme Court found the state's death penalty law at the time unconstitutional and his death sentence was changed in 1977 to life in prison with the possibility of parole.

The septuagenarian has made 11 failed bids for parole since 1978, the last in 2007 when he was ordered to continue serving life sentences.

Here are earlier photos taken in 1968 and 2009:

The only thing better than a photo of Manson still in
prison would be one of Shaved, who for years has
been masquerading as a Chicago Police investigator.

Let the White piece of shit rot slowly and then die of a painful, long-term chronic disease that first makes his prick fall off.

Nothing is too gruesome to happen to Manson.

Then there's Hell, too.

Charles Manson voted for Obama, then found out that they shared a lot of the same views.

"The septuagenarian has made 11 failed bids for parole since 1978, the last in 2007 when he was ordered to continue serving life sentences." He's crazy, not stupid. I've seen videos of some of the "failed bids" and he was goofing on the system. Also, there was a lot more to the murders than random violence.

I suppose that CNN thinks we should feel sorry for this piece of garbage because he has aged so much and that he should be granted parole!!

He can't be any worse than the Cub third base coach who sent Stewart running from second in the ninth inning of the home opener.
