182. Okay, Manson, which is it?
At least once on this blog, it's been reported that Manson has claimed that Krishna Venta commited suicide in order to make a statement about the ecology. But then there's another (undated) link wherein, beginning at 40 seconds in, Manson says Krishna Venta was "having a sex orgy one night with about 12 or 15 women, and in those days - back in the 1940s - that wasn't very well accepted. So, what happened was someone put dynamite up underneath his house and blew him up. They blew him up, blew his wife and all his children, blew everybody up, blew about 15 or 20 people up...and I was a kind looking at this."
So, which is it? Of course, both of Manson's versions of history are way off the mark.
There's plenty of erroneous information in the above. For one, more than likely, Krishna Venta was asleep when the suicide bombing occured, so it's doubtful he was having sex with anyone. The bombing occured in 1958, when Manson was pimping on the streets, not the 1940s. Krishna Venta's wife was in Alaska at the time and, while children definitely were injured and killed, none of Krishna Venta's children died that night.
