Charles Manson, 79, the vicious killer who is still in jail in California’s Corcoran State Prison, has a 25-year-old girlfriend who thinks they are getting married. The girl has taken the name “Star,” which Manson gave her. She has visited Manson since she was 19 and runs websites in which she stands up for him and also his “green” causes.
Star is your average Midwestern girl next door, growing up near St. Louis while smoking grass and eating mushrooms. At 19, having perused Manson’s environmental rants, she traveled by train to Corcoran and moved there. Just recently, the girl next door cut an X into her forehead. She visits Manson on weekends, and although she looks very much like former Manson Family member Susan Atkins, who was jailed for taking part in Tate-LaBianca killings until she died in 2009, she hates the comparison, stating, “That bitch was fucking crazy. She was a crazy fucking whore. ‘Oh Charlie, I did this for you.’ She didn’t know what she was doing.”
Star just knows Manson intends to marry her: “I’ll tell you straight up, Charlie and I are going to get married. When that will be, we don’t know. But I take it very seriously. Charlie is my husband. Charlie told me to tell you this. We haven’t told anybody about that.” She added if California allowed lifers to have sex, “we’d be married by now.”
Manson? Even with his experience, he’s not sure he wants to tie the knot again. He said, “Oh that. That’s a bunch of garbage. You know that, man. That’s trash. We’re just playing that for public consumption.”
