Charles Manson Hospitalized ... 'It's Just a Matter of Time'

Charles Manson Hospitalized ... 'It's Just a Matter of Time'

Charles Manson is being treated in a Bakersfield, California hospital, according to TMZ.

Waters did confirm, however, that Manson is alive.

Along with members of his "family", the cult leader was convicted for killing seven people, including actress Sharon Tate, who was 8 1/2 months pregnant. He is reported to have sought to start a "race war", which he dubbed "Helter Skelter" after The Beatles' song of the same name.

Manson, who is 83 and serving multiple life sentences at a prison in California, was taken to a hospital in Bakersfield.

The next night, Manson rode with his followers to the Los Feliz home of Leno and Rosemary LaBianca, then left three members to kill the couple.

The 83-year-old's health has deteriorated in recent years, and in January he was deemed too frail to undergo surgery to fix an intestinal lesion, RTE reported at the time. All of his parole petitions ended with officials denying his release.

Manson has been in Corcoran State Prison in California since 1971. A spokeswoman for the hospital declined to comment.
