Deranged psycho murderer Charles Manson may be sitting in prison with not much left to live for, but he does have one valiant support: a 25-year-old woman named Star who considers herself to be his wife.
Although the odd couple hasn’t been able to make their marriage official yet, Star says:
“He filed for the first round of paperwork. I’m completely with him, and he’s completely with me. It’s what I was born for, you know. I don’t know what else to say.”
Star began corresponding with Manson when she was just 17-years-old. She was attracted to his bogus environmental philosophy, ATWA, which stands for air, trees, water, animals. “It’s the life on the planet, you know,” Star says. “The Earth is a rock and everything else on it is ATWA.” Critics claim that Manson’s ATWA is just a ploy to get young people interested in him. Apparently, it’s working.
After falling for the 79-year-old convicted murderer, Star moved to Corcoran, CA to be with him. She was a tender 19-years-old at the time. The small central California city is home to the Corcoran State Prison, where Manson has lived for the last 25 years.
Star claims that she could care less about what other people think about her unconventional choice of a partner:
“I don’t care what those kind of people think. It doesn’t make any difference. The man that I know is not what they have in the movies or in documentaries and the books. He’s nothing like that. He doesn’t tell people what to do. He’s not manipulative at all. The only thing that he’s trying to manipulate people into doing is planting trees and cleaning up the Earth. He genuinely cares about that. He’s nice to everyone. I’ve never seen him try to be manipulative. I’ve never seen any of that.”
Star spends her days painting and maintaining Manson’s social media sites. She is totally unconcerned with what she will do when he isn’t around around anymore. Star talks to Manson almost everyday. “We talk about anything and everything, you know, like what’s going on today — who’s doing what. I try to help him file papers and stuff like that,” she says.
The slender brunette visits Manson on most weekends, though the parameters of their visits are strictly confined. She is only allowed to give him a hug at the beginning and end of their visit and the lovebirds will never be allowed conjugal visits, as Manson is serving life in prison and the state of California does not afford such prisoners that marital privilege.
Star is fiercely loyal to Manson. So loyal, in fact, that she still has a scar from shaving her head and carving an X into her forehead. She did so at the behest of Manson, who was encouraging his supports to protest his being punished with solitary confinement. The move was reminiscent of what his female followers did during his 1971 trial.
Star maintains that Manson is innocent of masterminding the murders of seven wealthy white individuals in order to insight a race war:
“Charlie never believed in something called Helter Skelter. That didn’t have anything to do with why those people were killed. He never ever thought any of that stuff. That’s ridiculous.That’s crazy.”
