The infamous serial killer Charles Manson has written a letter to shock rocker Marilyn Manson from his prison cell, according to NME. And while the letter is written in a frankly bizarre manner, there’s a definite threatening undertone to it.
"To Marilyn Manson, It’s taken me a long time to get there from where I could touch M. Manson. Now I got a card to play – you may look into my non-profit, ATWA, and give Manson what you think he’s got coming for Air, Trees, Water, and you. Or I will pay Manson what you think Manson got coming – the music has make Manson into Abraxas Devil, and I’m SURE you would want some of what I got from what I got. It’s a far out balance."
"Beyond good and bad, right, wrong. What you don’t do is what I will do – what you did a sing-along, and let it roll and said how you saved me a lot of steps – I don’t need, it’s not a need or a want. Couped – coup. Ghost dancers slay together and you’re just in my grave Sunstroker Corona-coronas-coronae – you seen me from under with it all standing on me. That’s 2 dump trucks – doing the same as CMF 000007. Charles Manson.
Marilyn Manson (real name Brian Warner) took the latter half of his stage name from Charles Manson, while the first half is a reference to actress Marilyn Monroe. Members of his band including Twiggy Ramirez, Ginger Fish and Madonna Wayne Gacy were also named based on the Hollywood star first name/serial killer last name formula.
While Charles Manson’s letter might seem threatening, there is next to no chance of the killer ever coming into contact with Marilyn Manson. He is currently serving life imprisonment for the series of murders that he and his Manson family cult committed in 1969.
