New photo shows an aging Charles Manson
April 4, 2012 | 7:27 pm

California prison officials have released a new photo of serial killer Charles Manson.

The photos show Manson, 77, with long, gray hair and a beard. It released at the request of CNN in advance of an April 11 parole hearing.

Manson and other members of his so-called family were convicted of killing actress Sharon Tate and six other people during a bloody rampage in the Los Angeles area during two August nights in 1969. Prosecutors said that Manson and his followers were trying to incite a race war that he believed was prophesied in the Beatles' song "Helter Skelter."

Tate, the wife of director Roman Polanski, was 8 1/2 months pregnant when she was killed at her hilltop home in Benedict Canyon on Aug. 9, 1969. Besides Tate, four others were stabbed and shot to death including Jay Sebring, 35; Voytek Frykowski, 32; Abigail Folger, 25, a coffee heiress; and Steven Parent, 18, a friend of Tate's caretaker. The word "Pig" was written on the front door in blood.

The next night, Manson rode along with his so-called family members to the Los Feliz home of Leno and Rosemary LaBianca, then left three of them to commit the murders. "Death to pigs" was written on a wall, and "Healter Skelter," which was misspelled, on the refrigerator door.

Manson was also convicted of the earlier murder of musician Gary Hinman in his Topanga Canyon home, and the slaying of former stuntman Donald "Shorty" Shea at the Spahn movie ranch in Chatsworth, where Manson had his commune.

Manson initially was sentenced to death. A 1972 ruling by the California Supreme Court found the state's death penalty law at the time unconstitutional and his death sentence was changed in 1977 to life in prison with the possibility of parole.

The septuagenarian has made 11 failed bids for parole since 1978, the last in 2007 when he was ordered to continue serving life sentences.

I miss Charlie's 1960's TV Show!

what's funny is, he never killed anyone himself.

Yeah...it's freaking hilarious. I'm surprised he is still alive. You would have thought somebody would have stabbed him in prison.

He has to get up 7-8 times a night to pee now
His cellmates keep committing suicide from lack of sleep

Charles Manson is in solitary. There's no way that they're sticking him in gen pop.

I'm going to bet that he doesn't get parole.

Hasn't he already been denied parole a few times? I've seen one of his parole hearings, and from what I saw, it clearly looks like he doesn't want it. I think his crazy bits are just an act. I mean, he's definitely not "sane" but he goes over the top because that's what everyone expects from him. At this point I think he's comfortable dying in prison.

The guy probably isn't a danger to society, but he's been in prison basically his whole life. He doesn't know what he'd do with himself if he got parole.

Probably kill people. It wasn't too long ago he said he'd kill again if ever let out.

Let him out, but make him wear a hoodie and carry a conduit bender and he'll be taken care of in no time!! :)

There's a new idea for a reality show. Parole him out and let camera's follow him around. As nuts as he is, I'm sure producers would find something to broadcast.
