You've heard the phrase 'she only wants you for your body,' but it seems that serial killer Charles Manson's bride-to-be took that a bit too literally...
27-year-old Afton Elaine Burton announced her engagement to jailed killer Manson back in November, but their wedding plans took a dramatic turn when journalist Daniel Simone looked into the case, the NY Post reports.
Supposed superfan Burton had hatched a plan to gain the rights to Manson's body when he dies in order to make cash by displaying his corpse to the public in a glass case. At this point, even Charles Manson is, like, I'M OUT.
Simone - who is investigating Manson for his book The Retrial of Charles Manson - said that Manson scrapped the wedding plans because 'he’s finally realized that he’s been played for a fool,' but don't feel too sorry for this jilted lover yet.
Manson is allegedly not impressed with Burton's plan to entomb him in glass for the public to gawp at for a particularly Manson-ish reason: He's convinced that he is immortal. Simone said:
He feels he will never die. Therefore, he feels it’s a stupid idea to begin with.
That clears that up, then. Check out Afton Elaine Burton talking about her affianced before her little quick money scheme was exposed.
If the real life Manson is just a bit too weird for you, the movie Manson Girls is in development, starring The Devil's Rejects' Bill Moseley in the titular role.
