Shall we have a pity party for either one of these darlings?
Serial killer Charles Manson’s supposed budding romance with a woman 53 years his junior has been allegedly exposed as a money-making scheme.
According to journalist Daniel Simone, 27-year old Afton Elaine Burton, now known as Star, was hoping that she would gain possession of Manson’s corpse through marriage so she and a couple of friends could put it on display in a glass case in LA.
They apparently thought the Lenin’s Tomb-esque attraction would draw a huge number of visitors and make a lot of money.
But Manson, 80, apparently got wind of the plan and now no longer wants to marry Burton.
But WAIT, it gets better. The joke would have been on her since Manson says he is immortal!
You know, I didn’t find this original idea of the marriage unbelievable since there are women who do find such men… um, interesting. “Star” Burton says she was first attracted to Manson after reading about his environmental philosophy that stands for air, trees, water, animals. They have been in contact for many years. At one point, critics thought Manson was manipulating her into giving him attention and getting him more press. Have the tables turned? She seems a bit questionable in judgment. Maybe they deserved each other.
I don’t know how true this revealed “real” story is. But it’s so bizarre, I just had to share. We humans are fascinated by the darndest things.
