The grandson of Charles Manson has filed probate documents guaranteeing that there will be a legal fight over the killer's estate and burial.
It probably seems strange that anyone would want to be associated with the legacy of Charles Manson by laying claim to his estate.
The estate might be valuable because of interest in the notorious cult leader and convicted murderer. However, most people would still probably rather pass on being associated with him.
It now appears there will be a fight over his estate, as TMZ reports in "Charles Manson Grandson Files Probate Docs Manson's Body Still on Ice."
A fan and friend of Manson's named Michael Channels claims to have a will that Manson drafted designating Channels as the executor of the estate and as Manson's sole heir. Channels has previously vowed to fight anyone who challenges his claim.
Manson grandson Jason Freeman has accepted that challenge.
Freeman filed documents with the probate court requesting that a person of his choosing be appointed to administer Manson's estate. The two are also fighting over how to dispose of Manson's remains. His body remains in storage, until the court can determine which of the two men should be given possession of it for disposal.
When there is money and notoriety involved, some people will fight over any estate including the estate of Charles Manson.
