A new photo of Charles Manson, who will be going up for parole later this month, has been released by California prison officials.
The notorious killer, now 77-years-old, has been denied parole 11 times so far. In 2007, the parole board rejected his bid for parole, saying that Manson “continues to pose an unreasonable danger to others and may still bring harm to anyone he would come in contact with.”
Los Angeles County Deputy Dist. Atty. Patrick Sequeira said:
“He refused to cooperate, so the conclusion they drew from the reports is he still remains a danger to the public. He was convicted of nine horrible murders. He has expressed no remorse or empathy for any of the victims.”
The LA Times reports that Manson will have his parole hearing next Wednesday.
A new photo of Manson has been released prior to his hearing which shows the convicted killer with long grey hair and a swastika scar on his forehead. The Huffington Post notes that Manson has had the scar for decades.
Manson is currently serving a life sentence for the murder of nine people, including actress Sharon Tate. Manson and his so-called family killed Tate, who was 8 1/2 months pregnant at the time, at her home in Benedict Canyon on August 9th, 1969. Four other people were killed during the attack. The following night three more people were murdered by Manson’s family.
The LA Times reports that Manson was also convicted for the murder of musician Gary Hinman and stuntman Donald “Shorty” Shea.
