A handwritten will drafted by the late Charles Manson has been unearthed, revealing a multitude of interesting requests from the notorious killer.
TMZ reported that a 2002 will written by Manson requested all of his belongings be given to a pen pal.
The pen pal, whose identity remained anonymous, reportedly began writing and calling Manson during the 1990s. The two kept in touch for roughly 20 years, with the pen pal claiming to have visited Manson while the convicted murderer was in prison.
The first meeting between the two reportedly occurred in 2002, the year the will was written.
The will, dated Feb. 14 of that year, also showed that Manson disinherited his ex-wives, in-laws, children and the State of California.
Also on Manson’s disinheritance list were friends, inmates, guards, lawyers, cops and prisoners.
Manson also requested his body be given to his pen pal upon his death. According to TMZ, Manson’s pen pal has 10 days to claim the body or the prison will cremate it.
TMZ also reported that the witness signature on the will was provided by an inmate.
The pen pal will also receive Manson’s “exclusive catalog” of music, which reportedly features over 100 songs, as reported by the U.K. Daily Mail.
It wasn’t specified whether the Beach Boys song, “Never Learn Not to Love,” for which Manson was an uncredited songwriter, is in the music catalog.
Manson’s will also included a note that said he was “not in the best spot to rest in peace,” and that his requests had already been told to the pen pal.
Manson died on Nov. 19 at the age of 83 in a Kern County, California, hospital.
His health had reportedly been failing in the past few months. He was rushed to the hospital for a sigmoid lesion and intestinal bleeding back in January.
The infamous cult leader spent over 40 years behind bars after multiple murders committed by his followers in 1969.
A day after Manson’s death, the Association of Deputy District Attorneys of California recalled a quote originally stated by Vincent Bugliosi, the man who prosecuted Manson.
“Manson was an evil, sophisticated con man with twisted and warped moral values,” the statement read. “Manson’s victims are the ones who should be remembered and mourned on the occasion of his death.” (For more from the author of “Charles Manson’s Will Unearthed” please click HERE)
