LOS ANGELES California corrections officials have released a new photograph of convicted mass murderer Charles Manson, who is now bald with a thick gray beard.

The photo of the 74-year-old Manson was taken Wednesday as part of a routine update of files on inmates at Corcoran State Prison, where he is serving a life sentence for conspiring to murder seven people, said Seth Unger, spokesman for the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation.

The cult leader was first sentenced to death for the 1969 murders of movie star Sharon Tate, coffee heiress Abigail Folger and three others stabbed and shot to death at Tate's home in Los Angeles. The next night, two others were stabbed to death at their homes.

The image complete with a swastika carved into Manson's forehead was released to the Los Angeles Times because the newspaper requested a copy the next time it was taken.

Manson's co-defendants Susan Atkins, Leslie Van Houten, Patricia Krenwinkel and Charles "Tex" Watson were convicted with him. Their death sentences were commuted to life when the death penalty was briefly outlawed in America in 1972.

The swastika was a dead giveaway.

Just saw a "Gangland" episode on the Aryan Brotherhood. When Charlie went to prison he went to the AB for protection. Initially they refused because their "code" was to kill only those who "deserved" to be killed. They had a policy of not killing kids, family members or friends of their enemy. Charlie killed a pregnant Sharon Tate so they didn't want anything to do with him.

Until they figured out they could make a lot of money off of him AND use his followers as mules to both vaginally and rectally smuggle in drugs, money, weapons, etc.

John Gotti went to them for protection as well. He was paying the AB $50k/month to protect him. Once more of "his people" were in, he stopped paying. He figured he was safe. The AB hired a "brother" to attack Gotti, but not kill him. After the attack the payments started up immediately, as well as some extra dough for a hit on his attacker. Gotti died before the hit was carried out, but most people seriously doubt the AB was ever going to go through with it since they hired the guy to do it in the first place.
