los angeles - Sectalider Charles Manson has died of acute cardiac arrest, respiratory problems and colon cancer. That is stated in the death certificate, reported various American media.
Manson died on November 19 at the age of 83. The sect leader, sentenced to life imprisonment, who incited his followers to gruesome murders, already had colon cancer in the months prior to his death.
The body of Manson has not been buried until now, because family members and business friends argue about his inheritance. At least three parties have presented themselves as claimants, including a man who claims to be a grandson of Manson.
Manson had been in jail for more than 45 years. In the sixties he gathered a crowd of predominantly young female followers, known as the 'Manson Family'. In the summer of 1969 he set them to kill seven people.
