Charles Manson: Moss’s Correspondence
You’d think developing a relationship with John Wayne Gacy was creepy enough, but Jason Moss also corresponded with Charles Manson, Jeffery Dahmer and Richard Ramirez! Look for the other posts on Dahmer and Ramirez! But here we’ll focus on Manson…
Charles Manson is an American criminal who led what became known as the Manson Family, a quasi-commune that arose in California in the late 1960s. He was found guilty of conspiracy to commit the Tate/LaBianca murders, carried out by members of the group at his instruction. He was convicted of the murders themselves through the joint-responsibility rule, which makes each member of a conspiracy guilty of crimes his fellow conspirators commit in furtherance of the conspiracy’s object.*
Unlike Gacy, Dahmer, and Ramirez who all actually made some logical sense in their writings to Moss, Manson is another story! His words and images make the others seem somewhat “normal”! Read on and let us know your interpretation of these.
