Charles Manson’s grandson ramps up fight for serial killer’s remains, estate

The grandson of Charles Manson is asking a Los Angeles Superior Court judge to grant him the right to claim the mass murderer’s body and his estate.

Jason Freeman, the son of the late Charles Manson Jr. and the grandson of Manson and his first wife, Rosalie Willis, filed documents with the probate court Friday, seeking control of his grandfather’s estate, his attorney Alan Davis said.

Freeman’s claim comes as a legal battle begins over what to do with Manson’s remains and who has rights to what he’s left behind.

Freeman’s lineage is disputed by Matt Lentz, a Los Angeles musician known as Matthew Roberts, who says he is the killer’s son and has a will, allegedly signed in 2017 by Manson, according to The Associated Press. Lentz wants a DNA test of Manson’s remains, which are still being held by the Kern County sheriff-coroner, to prove he is kin and Freeman is not.

Charles Manson’s grandson renews effort to claim remains of mass murderer

The grandson of Charles Manson has filed court papers seeking to obtain the remains of the late mass murderer from the Kern County coroner.

Jason L. Freeman’s Los Angeles Superior Court petition was filed Friday, four days after Judge David Cowan ruled that the appropriate court papers seeking release of Manson’s remains had not been filed. A hearing on Freeman’s petition is scheduled for Jan. 26 before Judge Clifford Klein.

“As kin I am entitled to the remains of the decedent,” Freeman stated in court papers.

Klein also will decide whether the Manson probate proceedings should take place in Los Angeles County, where Manson once lived; in Kings County, where he was imprisoned before his death; or in Kern County, where he died.

Charles Manson’s Pen Pal Can’t Stop, Won’t Stop Fighting for the Mass Murderer’s Remains

While Charles Manson‘s corpse remains on ice in a California morgue, the battle over his body continues. According to legal documents obtained by Radar Online, the sociopath’s pen pal, Michael Channels, insists he’s the beneficiary of Manson’s estate — and thus deserves his remains. On Jan. 8, Channels appeared before a judge during a hearing at the Superior Court of California in Los Angeles to continue his fight.

Unfortunately for Channels, he isn’t the only one vying for his body. In fact, as many as five people are in the running. According to the Los Angeles Times, the coroner is worried that Manson’s corpse could be placed in the wrong hands.

Judge aims to referee fight over Charles Manson’s remains

SACRAMENTO, Calif. — The fight over the estate and body of apocalyptic cult leader Charles Manson has fragmented into at least three competing camps that could cash in on songs he wrote that were used by The Beach Boys and Guns N’ Roses.

A Los Angeles judge on Monday will begin trying to sort out at least two conflicting wills and claims to his estate by a purported son, grandson and pen pal.

At stake are commercial rights to the mass murderer’s name, image and mementos that can fetch thousands of dollars from so-called murderabilia collectors.

Manson died at age 83 in November nearly a half-century after he orchestrated the 1969 killings of pregnant actress Sharon Tate and eight other people.

Two people hold wills they claim Manson signed, though a friend says Manson left no will.
