FOX 5 San Diego – Ken Dickerson of St. Louis says he sent letters, postcards, and drawings back and forth with notorious cult leader Charles Manson for several years while he was in prison.
The Tate murders in Beverly Hills were gruesome and the story captivated the nation. Manson would spend 46 years behind bars for those crimes – and ultimately died in prison – but he used some of his time to write and call a man from Missouri, according to KTVI.
Dickerson said he began communicating with Manson in 2005 and the communication ended sometime in 2012. During that time, Manson sent him drawings, postcards, autographs, and long, rambling letters that were difficult to read.
Manson also called Dickerson often – as many as three calls a day some weeks.
The repeated contact gave Dickerson a look into this criminal mastermind.
“I set the school on fire in third grade and I ain’t been back since,” Manson said on a recorded cassette tape.
In describing his relationship with Manson, Dickerson said, “It’s no different than anyone else for the most part, outside of not being able to hang out with the dude.”
When asked why he would want to communicate with Manson, Dickerson said, “He was there, he was alive, he was someone of importance to history.”
A history that included a brutal, two-day murderous rampage in August 1969. “Helter Skelter” as it was called, was Manson’s motivation to kick-start a race war.
Did Dickerson ever think about Manson Family’s victims?
“I just separated the two. I took that guy that I’ve read about in books and stuff and put him over there and I put the other guy in my ear,” said Dickerson. “…For the most part, when I talked to him, we talked about art and music.”
There were also glimpses of Manson’s life behind bars, according to Dickerson. Manson mentioned during one conversation that he had been beaten up and in the fight, his guitar had been destroyed.
“When his guitar got busted over his head he felt like he just lost his dog,” said Dickerson. “Because of who he is, he would get taken advantage of a lot and used. He also got upset when some of the women he spoke to would start talking to other people in the unit, nah, he didn’t like that.”
Dickerson claimed Manson never asked him for anything and only wanted friendship, companionship, and someone to talk to about music. When asked why he recorded the conversations with Manson, Dickerson claimed, “He asked if I was recording it and I said no. He said you should. You don’t know what you’re missing. This is a part of history.”
When asked if he thought Manson was evil, Dickerson said, “He acted insane when he wanted to and acted evil when he wanted to or he could be a little puppy.”
Charles Manson died in November 2017 at the age of 83. Dickerson knows that many people see Charles Manson as an evil man that was the mastermind behind some of the most brutal murders in history.
When Dickerson’s mother told him Manson had died, he was disheartened.
“I actually did feel like I lost a friend,” he said. “I know that sounds, I don’t know the right word to use, but it did feel like I lost a friend.”‘
Interesting. If you could be a pen pal to any notorious crime figure who would it be and why?

Sadly another rapper has been the target of a brazen broad daylight shooting over some rap/street beef shenanigans.
Rapper Young Dolph was shot in Hollywood on Tuesday. At around 1:12 p.m. PT, shots were fired in the valet parking area of a Loews hotel in the city’s Hollywood & Highland shopping district.
Not long afterwards, the LAPD confirmed that Dolph was the target of the shooting, that he had been hit multiple times, and he was taken to a nearby hospital.
TMZ also reported on the shooting, and said that Dolph’s injuries appeared to be “non-life threatening.” Complex has reached out to a rep for Dolph, but they could not provide any information as yet. The shooter drove away in a gold Escalade (found empty not far from the scene) and is still at large. One person, who police have confirmed is not the shooter, has been detained.
Complex spoke to the LAPD’s Public Information office. They said only that there was “a victim of a shooting” who “ran into a business, suffering from a gunshot wound.”
Dolph was the target of another shooting back in February, in North Carolina.
TMZ is already fingering Memphis rapper Yo Gotti as the orchestrator of the Hollywood hit. Read that story here.
The two Tennessee MCs have had a long standing beef for some time, trading both verbal shots over wax and literal ‘shots.’
Earlier this year Dolph’s luxury Mercedes Benz tour bus was shot over 100 times during the music CIAA Awards in Charlotte. Catch up on that backstory here.
SMH! I really hope the violence stops before someone gets seriously hurt.
We’ve seen it happen over and over and over. It seems like Hip Hop is the only music genre where the artists are determined to imitate art and the line between art and real life become obscured. Unfortunately once bullets start flying it never ends well.
Check out Young Dolph’s video “PREACH” which put him on the Hip Hop map. Get well Dolph.
