Charles Manson's personal items are heading to a haunted museum. As TMZ shares, several personal artifacts of the late cult leader, including his false teeth, are going to be displayed at the Haunted Museum in Las Vegas.
Zak Bagans, the star of Travel Channel's Ghost Adventures, purchased several personal items following Manson's recent death. Bagans says that the items were sold by a close friend and pen pal of the notorious criminal. The dentures were apparently stolen from the prison shower by an inmate in 2010. The friend is believed to have sent Manson a photo of the teeth, taunting him that he had them. The cult leader asked for them back but didn't receive them.
According to its website, the Haunted Museum boasts remains and "terrifying possessions" from famous crimes, including Dr. Jack Kevorkian's van and the “Propofol chair” used by late singer Michael Jackson.
On Nov. 19, Manson died at the age of 83. The cult leader, and head of the infamous "Manson Family," orchestrated the murders of seven people during the summer of 1969.
On August 9, 1969, the “Manson Family” murdered actress Sharon Tate, who was eight months’ pregnant, celebrity hairstylist Jay Sebring, coffee fortune heiress Abigail Folger, writer Wojciech Frykowski and Steven Parent, a friend of the family's caretaker. The next night, they killed supermarket executive Leno LaBianca and his wife, Rosemary. Although Manson didn’t physically participate in the killings, he did order them.
According to a California Department of Corrections statement, Manson died of natural causes at a hospital.
