On Friday, Manson was supposed to have surgery for intestinal bleeding Thursday night, according to TMZ, but doctors determined he was too weak and the procedure was too risky. 

However Friday evening a spokeswoman for the department confirmed to the LA Times that Manson was back behind bars. 

"'Inmate Manson is at California State Prison-Corcoran," she said in an email declining to elaborate in a follow-up phone call: "He is at the prison. I don't know how much plainer it can be,'" stated LA Times.
