(PCM) While no legitimate news sources were actually reporting that serial killer Charles Manson had been finally granted parole, the rumor spread like wildfire throughout the social media realm.
The headline about Manson’s parole was featured on the satirical news site “Empire News”. The well-written and detailed article claimed that the 79-year old mass murderer was granted parole due to prison over-crowding with his age and declining health playing a factor as well.
Well, rest assured that this story is definitely a hoax and Manson is definitely still behind bars. People that are sharing this story via social media need to be made aware that it is false, and the satirical news story about Manson’s parole most likely stems from the news that one of his known associates and followers Bruce Davis was recently granted parole.
