Charles Manson booking sheet with fingerprints from cult leader's 1969 arrest for Manson family murders on sale for $95k
CHARLES Manson’s murder booking form after the grisly killings carried out by his cult followers is on sale for $95,000.
The form is dated December 9, 1969 which was a few months after Manson's followers killed Sharon Tate and six others in Los Angeles.
The two page documents list Manson's physical details along with his hometown Cincinnati, which was spelled incorrectly, TMZ reports.
His address is listed as transient, his occupation musician and that he was arrested for robbery and homicide.
Twisted cult leader Manson was convicted of orchestrating the 1969 murders of pregnant actress Sharon Tate and six others.
In the 1960s, Manson assembled a group of runaways and outcasts known as the Manson Family.
In the summer of 1969, he directed his mostly young, female followers to murder seven people in what prosecutors said was part of a plan to incite a race war.
On August 8, 1969, the feared cult leader ordered four of his blood-thirsty disciples – Susan Atkins, Linda Kasabian, Patricia Krenwinkel and Charles "Tex" Watson – to the Beverly Hills address of movie actress Sharon Tate with the instruction to kill everyone in the house.
Manson told them to “totally destroy everyone in it, as gruesome as you can.”
As well as Tate, who was married to director Roman Polanski, they murdered four other people at the property that fateful night.
The actress was also eight-and-a-half months pregnant.
On the night she was killed she had three friends over for a dinner party: hairstylist Jay Sebring, Polanski’s friend Wojciech Frykowski and his partner, the coffee heiress Abigail Folger.
Less than 24 hours later, the deadly gang – plus Leslie Van Houten and Steve "Clem" Grogan – savagely tortured, murdered and mutilated wealthy LA couple Rosemary and Leno LaBianca.
They used their blood to write "Rise," "Death to Pigs," and "Healter Skelter," a misplaced reference to the Beatles song "Helter Skelter," on the walls and refrigerator door.
Manson and his accomplices were all sent down for the murders, apart from Kasabian who testified against them and played no direct part in the killings.
Manson was originally sentenced to death but was spared execution and his sentence was converted to life in prison after the California Supreme Court declared the death penalty unconstitutional in that state.
