California legal battle over Charles Manson's estate worth up to $1M includes DNA tests, signature comparisons
A California judge is set to select one of three possible heirs claiming to be next in line to receive Charles Manson's belongings. The three include his pen pal and "murderabilia" collector Michael Channels; Jason Freeman, who claims to be Manson's biological grandson; and Daniel Arguelles, who claims he is Manson's biological son.
Manson died at age 83 in 2017 while serving life in prison. His estate includes guitars, artwork, photographs, clothing and original songs — three of which were recorded by Guns 'N Roses, Marilyn Manson and The Beach Boys. The estate is estimated to be worth between several hundred thousand to a million dollars.
