Los Angeles Times: Becoming Mrs. Charles Manson: 26-year-old insists it's happening - LA Times

 The Manson myth continues with another installment:

Becoming Mrs. Charles Manson: 26-year-old insists it's happening - LA Times: Charles Manson is getting married, insists his bride-to-be. And Afton Elaine Burton, 26, plans to take her new husband's last name.

A look at the couple's marriage license shows it's Burton's first marriage and Manson's third, and Manson is listed at an address in Santa Barbara, where he reportedly lived for a short while in 1969 before moving to Los Angeles. It was in L.A. that Manson orchestrated the stabbing and shooting deaths of seven people over two nights in August 1969.
Manson was an experiment gone rogue and that's why the masses still think of him as the "one who murdered Sharon Tate, etc." but of course he did not murder them. Orchestrated, as the article writes, yes. Murdered others, no doubt. But try explaining that to the good citizens. What is it that has caused this young woman -- Elaine Burton -- to believe Manson innocent and why did she begin her quest at such a young age? Of which, prison authorities undoubtedly knew; her age, her full bio, allowing her wooing of Manson to continue.
