A legal battle is heating up over the estate of serial killer Charles Manson, who died from acute cardiac arrest complicated by a battle with colon cancer on Nov. 29. He allegedly has two wills, each leaving his estate to a different person. Jason Freeman, the grandson of Manson, filed documents with the Los Angeles County probate court on Jan. 12, seeking control of his grandfather’s estate, further complicating the dispute. While the value of Manson’s estate is unknown, he has written songs recorded by musicians such as the Beach Boys, and received royalties from a clothing company for a t-shirt bearing his likeness. A venue for the case has yet to be determined, but on Jan. 26, a judge will decide on the proper venue for the next court hearing.
