Fortean / Oddball News: Manson Caught Texting, Wikileaks UFO Details and Fallen Aliens Memorial

Convicted Cult Leader Charles Manson Caught With Cell Phone in Prison, Texting

PWNN - Who was Charles Manson texting? That’s the question everyone wants an answer to as well as the more pertinent one: How did Charles Manson get a cell phone in prison? There’s a growing number of inmates nationwide obtaining cell phones in prison and Charles Manson is the newest famed inmate to be caught red handed. According to a spokesperson for the California Department of Corrections, Charles Manson had an LG flip phone hidden under his mattress. He also used the phone and sent text messages to New Jersey, California and Florida. It is unclear who Charles Manson contacted and the nature of the messages has not yet been publicly released.

At 78-years-old, Charles Manson remains one of the most notorious inmates in the nation’s history. His case was interesting in that he was not charged with the infamous murders of Sharon Tate (and her unborn son), Wojciech ‘Voytek’ Frykowski, Steven Parent, Abigail Folger, Jay Sebring on August 9, 1969 on Cielo Drive. Instead, he was charged with masterminding the murders and exhibiting great control over his followers referred to as Manson family members. On August 10, 1969, Charles Manson accompanied several other family member to another home where this followers would murder Leno and Rosemary LaBianca. Due to Manson’s proven control over his followers, and the fact that his teachings led them to commit horrific murders, Charles Manson is classified as a cult leader.

Prison authorities continue monitor inmates looking for cell phones and other contraband. Cell phones have been linked to additional crimes and with Manson’s control over his followers, many will question whether he used the cell phone to send crime related messages. At this point, it has not been stated whether or not Charles Manson was speaking to family members or what the messages were in regards to.

Charles Manson was found guilty of 27 counts on January 25, 1971; he has been incarcerated since. He has been in a number of prisons including Folsom State Prison, California Medical Facility and San Quentin. Charles Manson is currently behind bars at Corcoran State Prison.


New Diplomatic Cables Contain UFO Details, Says Wikileaks Founder

sify - Wikileaks founder Julian Assange has said that the new leaked diplomatic cables set to be published by the whistleblowing website will contain fresh details on UFOs.

The 39 year-old Australian, who is wanted by Interpol over a charge of rape and sexual assault in Sweden, said there were some references to extraterrestrial life in yet-to-be-published confidential files obtained from the American government.

He did not revealed what information was contained in the diplomatic memos obtained by the website.

It also remains unclear when they will be published.

Assange said his website, under considerable strain in recent days over its "Cablegate" series of leaks, received emails from "weirdos" claiming to have seen UFOs.

"Many weirdos email us about UFOs or how they discovered that they were the anti-christ whilst talking with their ex-wife at a garden party over a pot-plant," the Telegraph quoted him as saying, when asked if any of the documents he had received referred to extraterrestrial life.

"However, as yet they have not satisfied two of our publishing rules. 1) that the documents not be self-authored; 2) that they be original.

"It is worth noting that in yet-to-be-published parts of the cablegate archive there are indeed references to UFOs," he added.

Assange's comments were made during a webchat with The Guardian.


UK Top Cops Lose Dead Colleague in the Toilet

metro - When a senior drugs officer with Britain’s ‘FBI’ went missing, his colleagues were baffled. The Serious Organised Crime Agency, admired for its investigative skills and hi-tech crime-fighting abilities, marshalled its resources in the hunt. If only they had checked the toilets. Two ‘extensive searches’ of the offices failed to turn up anything and, 16 hours after he was last seen, the officer’s colleagues called his wife and told her she should report him missing to local police.

He was eventually found at 4am the next day by a security guard on his regular rounds, who noticed the toilet cubicle door had been shut for a ‘considerable time’. The guard then called Soca officers who kicked down the door and found their colleague dead on the toilet, just a few metres from his desk in the London offices of the agency.

Bosses have since ordered that 10cm (4in) be lopped off the bottom of cubicle doors so they could easily check if anyone was trapped. The agency, which employs 4,200 staff and has 40 offices in Britain, refused to confirm when the officer was found dead earlier this year, but a source said he ‘vanished’ after going to the toilet at 12pm.

The source said his colleague, a team leader in charge of Soca’s Interpol drugs desk, was not found until the early hours the next day. He added that Soca was ‘staffed by brand new, inexperienced staff who are keen to assist but who have little, if any, background experience in law enforcement work’. A police source, who has worked in the Met for 15 years, said: ‘How these guys can be called Britain’s FBI when they can’t even find their own officer 50ft from his desk is an embarrassment.’


UFO Enthusiasts Want to Build Memorial to 'Fallen Aliens' in Ukraine

usatoday - In Ukraine, UFO enthusiasts want to build a memorial to "fallen aliens" who have died during their alleged Earthly encounters, the Russia-based news channel RT tells us.

These "ufologists" are collecting money for their extraterrestrial monument in the historic northern city of Berdichev, the project's organizer, Aleksandr Nalisman, told a local newspaper. RT recounts that report, writing that aliens "usually became the victims of different catastrophes," including "a jet fighter [that] collided with a UFO in 1997 in the ancient city of Kherson."

The source says the UFO's pieces were taken by Ukrainian soldiers for examination. Later, they succeeded in bringing down six more UFOs. It helped them "begin constructing its analogue." Whether the scientists have found the remains of the fallen UFO pilots is not known.

Nalisman issued his call for remembrance because "people of Earth have not paid attention to the lives of the aliens."
