Charles Manson Open Casket Funeral Then Burnt To a Crisp

2Charles Manson's remains were finally disposed of on Saturday at a memorial service in Porterville, CA. The corpse had been in storage since his death in November due to a legal struggle between multiple claimants to his estate. Reports indicate the body had begun decomposing and required extensive makeup and gloves to hide the decay. About thirty people showed up for the funeral. Among the mourners were Jason Freeman, Manson's grandson, former fiancee, Afton Burton, and Sandra Good, a former Manson family member. The service ended with Manson's ashes being spread along a forest creek. The weather was apparently fairly windy, as the ashes blew back onto several of the attendees.
