CORCORAN, CA — Forty-seven years into his prison sentence for masterminding the infamous 1969 TateLaBianca massacres, homicidal hippie cult leader Charles Manson has been photographed for a fresh mug shot at California’s Corcoran State Prison.

Sporting a shaven head, a fully gray beard, and the signature swastika “third eye” tattoo on his forehead, the 82-year-old Manson definitely appears older than he has in times past, but as TMZ notes:

“He doesn’t look worse for wear after he was rushed [in late 2016] to a nearby hospital where he spent days for a lesion in his intestines that caused significant bleeding.”

Authorities took Manson’s most recent previous mugshot in 2014.

He had more hair and few less wrinkles back then.

Of course, Charlie’s original 1969 LAPD mugshot following the murders committed by members of his Manson Family cult remains a classic image of American terror.

Manson, who was originally sentenced to death before California abolished capital punishment, has repeatedly been rejected for parole. He’ll get his next shot at freedom in 2027, when he’ll be 93.
