A clean-cut Charles Manson on his wedding day in 1955

fiendish_wonder

He'd already raped a boy at knifepoint and committed various robberies by this point.


MLTSaveThePrincess

Wow. He did so much bad shit that people don't even bother with knowing this.


Katapotomus

She was 15 about to turn 16 in this pic.


jmh90027

Looks more like mid 40s tbh


38LeaguesUnderTheSea

Shit, even infants looked like they were in their mid 40s back then…

To think if he didn't go bonkers he couldve had a solid career as a musician. Dude had some chords on him.


justalittlebleh

He was good enough for The Beach Boys to jack one of his songs


DarkHater

"Bonkers" is the tip of the iceberg. Like saying if Hitler hadn't been "angry" at the Jews he could have been an okay artist. Annnd, Godwin'd!


Trashcoelector

Godwin himself said several years ago that due to recent re-emergence of nazi movements, the Godwin law is no longer relevant.


DarkHater

And Steve Wilhite says Gif has a soft G, just because they created something doesn't mean they control the canon. Think of it like the Catholic church.😁


bannana

> couldve had a solid career as a musician. have you listened to his music? it wasn't good


IronNomad86

I mean... Brian Wilson went just as bonkers


nofishontuesday2

Not defending the guy but he had a real shitty childhood.


justalittlebleh

Man was literally named “Noname” for a while


mrpodo

Childhood trauma can warp a person's perception of reality. That might be the biggest contributing factor of his actions


nofishontuesday2

I’m sure it was. I believe his mother was a whore, didn’t have a clue who his father was and actually didn’t have a name until he gave himself one. All of these things I’m writing I’ve only heard and have no idea if there true or not. So you serial killer buffs feel free to correct me if I’m wrong. Anyway you slice it, the guy never stood a chance to live a good life


Thelast_n_thecurious

Dude looks real charismatic. Looks are deceiving


MisunderstoodDemon

Cult leaders need charisma to lure people in

Hey I'm still here


Agree_2_Disagree303

Listen, it's never too late. Don't give up on your dreams.


ReformedBacon

Dont give up! Remember to have an end game date. Something to scare people into staying and to build up to something. Dont worry tho, when the date comes, just push it back! Literally dozens of cults have done this effectively


catsnglitter86

Ted Bundy got that same smile


BananaStringTheory

Notice he's not directly *holding* the knife, but he's still *guiding* the knife....which would become a theme.


38LeaguesUnderTheSea

People keep mentioning the positioning of their hands on the knife. That’s literal wedding cake cutting protocol. Bride holds knife in right hand, groom places right hand over hers…both cut together. It’s wedding etiquette and has probably been that way since wedding cakes became a thing. I take it ya’ll aren’t golfers.


twobit211

hey, at least i’m housebroken

The dude abides


Mr_Manmanman

That's just another Loki variant


americanvirus

Easily one of the darker time lines


momma_bear_3

Well, shit... This is spooky. I wonder what she thinks about him now. I mean, he's dead now, but yeah. Imagine walking around being like "I was married to Charles Manson, nbd."


chubachus

He would’ve been a great stunt double for Johnny Cash!


blueyedmystic

Holy shit, I would've never guessed that was Manson. He actually looks normal.


Stompya

Clean well-fitting clothes, a tidy haircut, and a healthy application of soap and shampoo can make almost anyone look “normal”.


janad1

Look at those CRAZY EYES!


prodgodq2

He dialed his mind to smiling psychopath.


LascarRamDass

Read "Chaos" by Tom O'Neil and understand our CIA's fuckery


Miss-Chinaski

Such a good fucking book! I cant wait for the sequal


Morganbanefort

Wait there's going to be a sequel


TinFoilRobotProphet

Scary. How many more clean cut dudes like this were/are out there that just never acted on their impulses?


thecatdaddysupreme

Probably thousands


Moist_666

Kind of a weird parallel to think that he made woman do his killings predominantly with knives and in this picture he’s holding the knife with his wife. Hehe that rhymed.


imsad-iknow

He didn't make anyone do anything.


LordPizzaParty

If you told me it was young Regis Philbin I’d believe it.


jimjimbo111

The man was a con man. Plain and simple.


lobotomyvortex

what going clear does to a mf


Knibbler

He looks like every other white guy. That's the scariest part. - Another white guy :-(


multiplesifl

I'm so tempted to treat this like a little Easter egg by printing it out and putting it in a frame. So tempted.


IncomeAggravating932

Oohh, that's a great idea... "So who are those people in the picture?" "Well, it's my great uncle Charlie with his teen wife"


caseysgeneralstore

Such a sweet and handsome young man

Guiding another woman's hand to the knife...


NoMemeBeyond

I mean that’s wedding cake cutting etiquette, so yeah?


jmh90027

Screw u


NoMemeBeyond

No thank you, you couldn’t afford me

R.I.P Hope he's somewhere better than this place.


Wbino

🎼Helter Skelter was their wedding song..🎼


multiplesifl

A joke's a joke but that song wouldn't be a thing for another 13 years.


Wbino

Yeah I know....


MJsLoveSlave

Damn, he had the crazy eyes even then.


comment_got_deleted

Honestly, I didn’t know that he was ever married. I’ve seen him in those videos where he sounds like an absolute lunatic (which he 100% was), and it’s so hard to believe he was likable enough to have friends let alone be married (although I’m guessing the marriage didn’t last very long). Still doesn’t make it any less creepy… it might even be a bit more creepy seeing him so clean-shaven and before he did the further horrible things in his life. It’s like I was always told, crazy is as crazy does.


ccorpsepile

there really is something about the eyes. i usually roll my eyes at the cliche eye routine with murderers, but it feels genuinely like this guys is staring into my soul
