Mass murderer Charles Manson was taken out of prison and brought to a Bakersfield hospital Tuesday for gastrointestinal issues, TMZ first reported.
A source confirmed Manson’s hospitalization to the LA Times.
He was being held at Corcoran State Prison, about an hour away from Bakersfield before being taken to the hospital.
Manson was signed in as ”Joe Doe” at Mercy Hospital Downtown, a source told the Bakersfield Californian.
Prison vans were parked outside the hospital Tuesday night.
Initially, sources told 23ABC that Manson might also have been at San Joaquin Community Hospital. However, a spokesperson with San Joaquin Community hospital said Manson is not there.
82-year-old Manson’s son is in town to visit the cult leader, the New York Post reported.
