Charles Manson Has Now Died But He Did NOT Kill Any Nurses

by Brett M. Christensen

Charles Manson has indeed died. However, the report discussed below is fake-news that began circulating long before Manson’s death. Manson did not kill any nurses as claimed in the fake report.

The report, which began circulating via social media in early 2017, claimed that Charles Manson had been found dead in a hospital room after killing five nurses.

In November 2017, history caught up with the hoax and Charles Manson did die in hospital.  However, he certainly did not kill any nurses as claimed in the fake story.

The bogus story came 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.

Example (From February 2017) :
Charles Manson Found Dead in Hospital After Killing 5 Nurses – News 8 – California – Charles Manson, leader of the 1960’s cult group the ‘Manson Family’ was found dead in his hospital room early Tuesday morning. Hospital staff approached Manson’s private hospital room after they heard strange noises of banging and hollering at approximately 3:17 AM. When they arrived, they found him on the ground with a slit throat and 5 dead nurses in the room with him Charles Manson Dead Fake-News


Importance Notice

After considerable thought and with an ache in my heart, I have decided that the time has come to close down the Hoax-Slayer website.

These days, the site does not generate enough revenue to cover expenses, and I do not have the financial resources to sustain it going forward.

Moreover, I now work long hours in a full-time and physically taxing job, so maintaining and managing the website and publishing new material has become difficult for me.

And finally, after 18 years of writing about scams and hoaxes, I feel that it is time for me to take my fingers off the keyboard and focus on other projects and pastimes.

When I first started Hoax-Slayer, I never dreamed that I would still be working on the project all these years later or that it would become such an important part of my life. It's been a fantastic and engaging experience and one that I will always treasure.

I hope that my work over the years has helped to make the Internet a little safer and thwarted the activities of at least a few scammers and malicious pranksters.

A Big Thank You

I would also like to thank all of those wonderful people who have supported the project by sharing information from the site, contributing examples of scams and hoaxes, offering suggestions, donating funds, or helping behind the scenes.

I would especially like to thank David White for his tireless contribution to the Hoax-Slayer Facebook Page over many years. David's support has been invaluable, and I can not thank him enough.

Closing Date

Hoax-Slayer will still be around for a few weeks while I wind things down. The site will go offline on May 31, 2021. While I will not be publishing any new posts, you can still access existing material on the site until the date of closure.

Thank you, one and all!
