  1. SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) The body of murder mastermind Charles Manson was barely cold when competing bids began for his remains and belongings among relatives and longtime associates.

    Their plans have not been divulged, but some fear they might create a shrine for those who are still fascinated by the man behind the bizarre celebrity slayings that terrorized Los Angeles nearly a half-century ago.

    The value of Manson's belongings -- said to include music, artwork, writings and at least two guitars -- is unclear.

    But probate attorneys said the real value of his estate could be in controlling the use of his image and the power to authorize any biographies or documentaries.
    At the very least, it seems, Manson devotees want to prevent his ashes from being anonymously interred with other indigent inmates.

  2. Cremate him and dump the ashes in the ocean.
    Any money made from licensing his image should go to the families of his victims.

  4. If I had his body, I'd preserve him Lenin style and charge people money to see him.

  7. Either auction off his shit and give 100% of the money to the families of his victims, or burn it all and dump the ashes in the sea.

  10. Giving money made by selling Manson's stuff to the families of the victims sounds like a good idea... it only comes with a slight downside of also giving money to Polanski.

  11. There's probably some weirdos out there that would love at least a small portion of his ashes. I don't even want to know what they'd do with them. Courtney Love said she smoked some of Kurt's ashes.

    But people making money off his his art and other possessions is pretty sick. I'm sure that some of these "associates" were just hangers on waiting for ol' Charlie to kick the bucket. They're probably arguing over who he liked the most.

    Whoever ends up controlling Manson's image is going to have a goldmine on their hands. And they may choose to use that to pander to edgy teens. I've seen Manson shirts. But I'd hate to see the image cheapened any further.

    I'm surprised Rob Zombie isn't trying to get a piece.

    That's the only bad thing about that. Polanski.

  12. I'd give it to Rob Zombie just to see what he'd do with it if he agreed to donate the proceeds to charity and/or the victims.

  13. 5 million and I'll bury him in Hicktown, Kentucky with a subtle gravestone, put the music on an anon soundcloud, and donate the guitars to a homeless guy.

    Tbh I can't really hate Manson or loathe him. He was messed up and taken advantage of, and moreso just grew to be a hardened criminal while incarcerated. I don't technically see him the same as people like Albert Fish, who ate and raped kids.

    Just me though. :optimistic: :dumb: :powerlevel:

  14. Any money made off outright selling the possessions of a murderous ringleader is trashy, whether it goes to the victims or not. Put his shit in a travelling museum exhibit about crazy murderers and donate percentages of the ticket money to charity. Then dump the glass boxes in some creepy, wet corner at the Smithsonian.

    End of story. Then there's no private or corporate owners exploiting a dead cultist mass murderer's stuff to try and glorify him as some 60s cultural icon like Andy Warhol, but it also doesn't just get burnt up and thrown in the trash.

    Should I start stockpiling nickels now?
