Charles Manson

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Charles Manson, the hippie cult leader who became the hypnotic-eyed face of evil across America after orchestrating the gruesome murders of pregnant actress Sharon Tate and six others in Los Angeles during the summer of 1969, died Sunday after nearly a half-century in prison. He was 83.

Manson, whose name to this day is synonymous with unspeakable violence and madness, died at 8:13 p.m. of natural causes at a Kern County hospital, according to a California Department of Corrections statement.

Michele Hanisee, president of the Association of Deputy District Attorneys, reacted to the death by quoting the late Vincent Bugliosi, the Los Angeles prosecutor who put Manson behind bars. Bugliosi said: “Manson was an evil, sophisticated con man with twisted and warped moral values.”

Detective Who Helped Capture Notorious Serial Killer Richard Ramirez Speaks: ‘He Was Pure Evil’

In the 1980s, a serial killer was on the loose in Los Angeles — but his methods baffled authorities.

The killer used a wide variety of weapons: handguns, knives, a machete, and even a tire iron. Some of his victims were robbed; others were raped. Some were fatally shot.

Even more inexplicably, the man — who the media dubbed the Night Stalker — left some victims alive, seemingly at random. From April 1984 to August 1985, he killed at least 14 people.

Eventually, police identified the Night Stalker as 25-year-old drifter Richard Muñoz Ramirez. His name and face were soon revealed in the media. He was captured in Arizona in August 1985, when a crowd of people held him — and beat him up — until police arrived.

It took years before the case went to trial, but on September 20, 1989, Ramirez was convicted

How notorious serial killer John Joubert’s days of slaying children came to an end

On Sept. 18, 1983, Danny Joe Eberle, 13, picked up his bundle of newspapers, loaded it on his bicycle, and pedaled off on his route delivering the Sunday Omaha World-Herald.

A few hours later, complaints started coming into the newspaper; the “sunrise edition” was late. Only three homes along Danny’s route in Bellevue, Neb., a quiet Omaha suburb, had gotten their delivery.

Danny’s father, Leonard, went out to search and found his son’s bicycle, with the papers, propped up against a fence near the start of his route. “He was proud of that bike,” Leonard Eberle told reporters — there was no way he would have left it, at least not willingly.

Three days later, investigators found Danny’s body, bound ankle and wrist, in a wooded area near the Offutt Air Force Base. There were eight stab wounds, as well as slashes and human bite marks on his body, but no signs
