It may not please you to read that convicted serial killer Charles Milles Manson was born a Maddox. That's the research from Manson prosecutor and author Vincent Bugliosi in his book Helter Skelter-- The True Story of the Manson Murders.
A great deal of ink has been spilt discussing Manson and his 'family' of fellow nuts who went to trial for the gruesome killings. Our purpose here is only to point out how Bugliosi links this imprisoned nut to the Maddox name. From his book, pg., 137:
Charles Manson was born "no name Maddox" on Nov. 12, 1934 in Cincinnati, Ohio, the illegitimate son of a sixteen-year-old girl named Kathleen Maddox.Bugliosi, in his world class best-seller on Manson, goes on to describe him as a hand-me-down kid who spend years being rejected and being housed in various youth facilities--all evidently contributing to the insanity that made him one of America's most famous murderers.
