Manson was convicted of ordering the murders of at least 7 people, including actress Sharon Tate and her unborn baby with director Roman Polanski.

Freeman, who reportedly lives in Bradenton, FL, and works as a personal trainer, boxer and mixed martial arts fighter, says he’s been working with an attorney to claim Manson’s remains.

According to the story, Freeman is aiming to take possessions of Manson’s belongings, including some art that he created while behind bars.

    That is appalling that the Grandson wants the remains of a convicted killer. I hope that your Courts will not allow the remains to be released, so that the situation could be exploited for financial gain. We had the same problem here lately with Mass Moors killer Ian Brady, the Courts here refused the family the remains, he was taken from prison under cover to be cremated and his ashes put out to sea. Then and only then was the family and press told. Its just shocking that Mansons remains might be used to make money off the horrendous murders that happened.
