He's 14 years old in 1935?   That would make him 103, your math is way off, what happened to proof readers?  He's in his 70's most likely.

You said 15 photos and only showed 14. Unfair! This just happens too much.

gotta appreciate California politicians who keep people like Manson alive for all these years .... why not ... California tax payer pays for keeping the monsters locked up to the tune of $200,000 a years........should have been executed like a rabid animal

Manson's no crazier than the loonies that have been running this nation for the past 50 years.

This is ridiculous. Yes, it shows him getting older but how can you claim it shows him getting "more insane"? What drivel.

Cant be 14, circa 1935.

@ronnor geezus, YOUR math is way off! Learn to add and subtract! 1935 - 14 = 1921, 2014 - 1921 = 93. How do you arrive at 103? Regardless, he is neither 103 or 93 years old.

@ronnor Your math is way off.  He'd be 93 today, not 103.

According to the "Charles Manson" article in Wikipedia, he was born on November 12, 1934.  That makes him 79 years old in January 2014.

@DiegoHomans I had a friend who was a guard at the Vacaville prison where Charlie Manson was confined for many years, until he was moved to the Centra Valley...  Most of the time Charlie was so doped up he could barely walk or talk...  on doctor's orders.
