LOS ANGELES (Reuters) –  Charles Manson, the wild-eyed cult leader who orchestrated a string of gruesome killings in California by his “family” of young followers, shattering the peace-and-love ethos of the late 1960s, has died, prison officials said. He was 83. Manson died of natural causes on Sunday at a Kern County hospital, the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation said. It gave no further details of the circumstances surrounding his death. He had been serving a life sentence at the nearby Corcoran State Prison for ordering the murders of nine people, including actress Sharon Tate.
