Convicted murderer Charles Manson died Sunday evening of natural causes at California’s Kern County Hospital, the California Department of Corrections announced in a statement. The sister of one of Manson’s victims, Debra Tate, had earlier told TMZ the California state prison where Manson spent the last several decades behind bars had begun notifying his victims. Manson had been serving out a life sentence for the notorious Manson Family murders, which claimed actress Sharon Tate among nine victims in a series of brutal killings that terrified Los Angeles in 1969.
