What Is to Be Done with Charles Manson

A messy dispute over the remains of Charles Manson is currently keeping his body on ice, according to Fox News in “Fight for Charles Manson’s body is a ‘circus,’ county attorney says.”

At least five people have come forward claiming the right to Manson’s remains and his estate.

Two of them were pen pals of his. One claims to have a will making him Manson’s sole heir and one of the claimants is Manson’s grandson. It is not clear what relation the other two people have to Manson.

The infamous cult leader and mass murder mastermind remained a subject of fascination until he died. A few people were even in awe of the notorious criminal.

Officials are not certain what court has jurisdiction to determine who should be given possession of the remains and to determine who should get Manson’s estate.

Until this matter gets settled, officials are required to preserve Manson’s remains.

Josh Nelson, and his staff, have been amazingly helpful to our family. The ins and outs of nursing homes, the rules and regulations that govern Medicare and Medicaid are daunting and the folks at Nelson Elder Care Law have been informative, responsive, and above all, empathetic. I cannot emphasize enough how their service has taken a weight off of our shoulders especially during a world pandemic that has targeted nursing homes across our country.
