New Photo Released Of 74-Year-Old Charles Manson

Posted: Updated:
LOS ANGELES (AP) - California corrections officials have released a new photograph of convicted mass murderer Charles Manson, who is now bald with a thick gray beard.

A corrections spokesman says the photo of the 74-year-old Manson was taken Wednesday as part of a routine update of files on inmates at Corcoran State Prison, where he is serving a life sentence for conspiring to murder seven people

The cult leader was first sentenced to death for the 1969 murders of movie star Sharon Tate, coffee heiress Abigail Folger and three others stabbed and shot to death at Tate's home in Los Angeles. The next night, two others were stabbed to death at their homes.

The image was released to the Los Angeles Times because the newspaper requested a copy the next time it was taken.
