Newly uncovered documents allege that Charles Manson once studied Scientology while in prison.
It's believed that Manson underwent 150 hours of the Scientology process known as auditing from cellmate Lafayette Raimer, in addition to other Scientology studies. These sessions occurred while Manson was imprisoned at the federal penitentiary in McNeil Island, Washington, from 1961 to 1966.
"Manson got super-energetic [and] flipped out when he'd been audited and would, for a time, talk about nothing but Scientology to the extent that people avoided his company," the report reads. "After a while, however, Manson was screaming to get away from his auditor... He eventually managed to get put in solitary confinement to get away from his auditor."0comments
Manson died on Nov. 20 due to cardiac arrest brought on by metastatic colon cancer and respiratory failure.
