I would have never guessed it at first glance. But once you study the eyes, the identity of satan incarnate becomes apparent. At least to me.
If ever the pure and distilled essence of evil has ever walked this earth, then Charles Manson is that entity in my opinion. The day that this beast dies is the day than a large piece of evil will cease to exist in this world and hell will rejoice at the arrival of one of it's own.
LOS ANGELES — California corrections officials have released a new photograph of convicted mass murderer Charles Manson, who is now bald with a thick gray beard and a swastika scar in the middle of his forehead.
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, said Seth Unger, spokesman for the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation.

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.
Manson's co-defendants — Susan Atkins, Leslie Van Houten, Patricia Krenwinkel and Charles "Tex" Watson — were convicted with him after taking the stand and attempting to absolve him by admitting their own deadly deeds.
