Charles Manson's Ex-Fiancée Wanted to Display His Corpse for Profit (Report)
They were a match made in … well, somewhere.
Burton reportedly planned the wedding so that she would gain possession of Manson’s body in the event of his death. According to The Independent, she and her friends hoped to make money by putting the corpse on public display in a glass case in Los Angeles and charging morbid spectators per viewing – similar to Lenin’s tomb in Moscow.
Manson, 80, allegedly called off the wedding after learning of Burton’s plans.
Burton, now known as Star, has been visiting the convicted cult leader in prison since she was 19. She reportedly runs a website about Manson that posted a statement claiming the wedding did not take place because of “an unexpected interruption in logistics.” The post claims the pair plan to marry in the coming months.
