What Nine Members of the Manson Family Are Doing Today


Found via mental_floss:

Big news yesterday[Aug 5, 2009]: Lynette “Squeaky” Fromme, Manson Family member and would-be assassin of Gerald Ford, has been paroled from prison after nearly 35 years of incarceration. Despite her fanatic membership in the infamous Manson Family, prosecutors were unable to pin anything on Squeaky until her attempt on the President’s life, which is what eventually landed her in prison with a life sentence. Considering that during that time, she attacked a fellow inmate with the claw end of a hammer and escaped once in 1987 to try to meet up with Manson. I don’t know what she’s been up to in the 20 years since then, but I do know that if she moved in next door to me, I’d probably start house-hunting pretty quickly. In case you’ve been wondering if any of the other Family members are looking for real estate in your area, here are where 10 of them are today.

    I’m sure you’ve already heard this, but Susan Atkins died in prison, finally succumbing to brain cancer.
