Crime Library: Criminal Minds and Methods

Happy belated birthday, Charlie Manson

Blame it on an iPhone lost in an airplane toilet (true story), but we at Crime Library are sorry to report we missed the November 12 birthday of one of our most infamous subjects.

Charles Manson celebrated his 79th birthday behind bars in the protective housing unit of the Corcoran State Prison. Hopefully, he’s not mad at us.

Thanks to the California Dept. of Corrections and Rehabilitation for the most recent photo of the birthday boy.
