Charles Manson’s fiancee allegedly only wanted him for his corpse

The news of infamous criminal Charles Manson’s recent engagement to a woman in her 20s turned some heads late last year — but a new twist in the story is even more unbelievable.

According to the New York Post, journalist Daniel Simone told the tabloid the engagement was a scheme by the fiancee to profit by putting Manson’s body on public display after his death.

Simone and a collaborator, Heidi Jordan Ley, are currently working on a book, “The Retrial of Charles Manson.” The authors claim to have spoken with Manson regularly before his phone privileges were suspended.
Burton and a friend, Craig Hammond, said they planned to place Manson’s remains in a glass crypt after his death — similar to the famous tomb of Vladimir Lenin in Moscow. They believed it would be a popular attraction for tourists.

See more at the link.  Manson is 80 and believes he is immortal.  The license expired last week for Manson and Afton Elaine Burton to marry.

Sound unbelievably likely.  we humans can be quite weird.

This one shocked me.

Not that Manson had a attractive 20 something fiance,  for some weird reason there always seem to be young women attracted to the most notorious killers.     But that they had these alterior plans to make money off the corpse, I did not expect.

But the joke is on them,  because Manson has said many times that he can't die.  So it's a bad idea.

It reminds me of the story of the 75 year-old man who shows up at the senior center social with a 25-year-old blonde bomshell on his arm.

His buddy says "You're 75! How did you score a babe like that?"

He replies "I told her I was 95."
