lot of things in the underworld that you guys don't see."manson was born in cincinati in 1934 to a single teenage mother.manson: "she got out of my life early. i spent the best part of my life in boys schools, prisons, reform schools because i had nobody."after marrying twice and spending half his life in prison, 32-year-old manson made his way to berkley in 1967. he established himself as a guru in the summer of love, and was quickly sharing a home 18 women. jeff guinn: "you get these kids, these children coming into heyday ashbury, and here is charlie manson, saying how much he loves them, and he wants to take care of them. he took full advantage."as the manson family formed and migrated south, it's leader established

printed in blood on the murder scene, that was tantamount to manson's fingerprints being found at the murder scene." after evidence in the cases mounted and a high-profile trial, manson and four followers were convicted of 9 murders and sentenced to death in 1971--which was downgraded to life in prison when california banned the death penalty.the notorious killer appealed for parole 12 times. manson: "if i'm not paroled and i don't have a chance to get back up on this dream, you're gonna win helter skelter!"while the convicted killer became somewhat of a pop culture icon...the family members of his victims never forgot his true impact. debra tate: "he needs to look into our eyes, victims' eyes, and see the pain that he's caused."
