Report circulating via social media claims that Charles Manson has been found dead in a hospital room after killing five nurses.
The report is utter nonsense. Charles Manson is not dead and he has not killed any nurses.
The bogus story comes from a fake-news website called Now8News. The site churns out an endless stream of utter drivel tricked up as news. It publishes these fictional reports in an effort to gain more site visitors and thereby generate more revenue. Nothing published on Now8News should be taken seriously.
It is wise to verify any claims about the deaths of famous – or infamous – people before you click any links or share the information with others. Some such death messages open dangerous scam and malware websites.
Keep in mind that, if a famous person does die, the story will be extensively covered by the mainstream news media. So, a quick search of a news portal such as Google News should reveal if a circulating death report is true. Of course, if Manson had really killed five nurses and then committed suicide, the news media would currently be in a frenzy and information about the deaths would be everywhere you looked.
