Manson drafted a will while in prison leaving everything to longtime pen pal.
Charles Manson’s will has been filed in court and an anonymous friend who would inherit his assets has been revealed to be Mark Channels, according to the Daily Mail in "Charles Manson's pen pal files the infamous killer's last will and testament in court after saying 'he'll go into the ring' if anyone challenges the document."
It turns out that Channels apparently worshipped Manson and even had a shrine to the cult leader in his home. Channels has already issued a warning to anyone who might contest the will and stated that he is prepared to fight for Manson's estate.
Manson does have a few living relatives who might want to contest the will. However, at the time of the article they had not done so. They still have roughly 100 days to file with the court, if they so choose.
Whoever inherits Manson's estate can expect to earn some money from collectors and could also see some money from music royalties.
Channels has vowed to fight any challenges to the will in court.
