What happened to the Manson family?
I was under the impression that Charles Manson and Leslie Van Houten etc. had been sentenced to death, and went through with it (the documentary ended on them being sentenced) but they are alive today. Is it possible to visit where they are? It sounds silly, but I have been fascinated by the family since I was about 10.
Thanks for any answers :)

Only one of the family members got amunity by testifying against the others. The ones given the death sentence were spared when California did away with the death penalty. By visit, do you mean visit them in prison? Susan Atkins died of cancer and the rest are still in prison but it would be very difficult to visit them. Even most reporters can't get in to see them. Best to satisfy your fascination by reading about all of it.

The Manson family were a bunch of SICKOS.
Do your research on the internet.
