Charles Manson, the charismatic cult leader whose followers committed heinous murders that shocked the nation nearly a half century ago, has been hospitalized, the Los Angeles Times and TMZ reported Wednesday. "Federal and state medical privacy laws preclude CDCR from commenting on protected health information for any inmate in our custody". "It's just a matter of time".
Waters did confirm, however, that Manson is alive.
Manson, who is 83 and serving multiple life sentences at a prison in California, was taken to a hospital in Bakersfield.

Manson's lieutenant, Tex Watson, and three female followers butchered the new occupants - actress Sharon Tate, the heavily pregnant wife of director Roman Polanski, her three friends and an 18-year-old boy visiting the property's caretaker.
The Times reported Manson's condition is unclear.
He established the "Family" cult at a ranch in California's Death Valley and arranged a slew of murders in an attempt to provoke war between white and blacks. He has been denied parole 12 times, the most recent time in 2012. But a local television reporter tweeted a photo of a prison department van outside Mercy Hospital.
