  • by: Jeremy Smith

There is a hoax story trending claiming Afton Elaine Burton, Charlie Manson's fincée, is pregnant with twins. Although it comes from a site that is a know for satire, not everyone is aware of that.

The NOT TRUE story starts:

Charles Manson, the notorious convicted murderer who is currently serving nine concurrent life sentences at Corcoran State Prison in Corcoran, California, will be the proud father of twins has announced the Sun Valley Herald this morning."

The story continues:

I am happy to say my battle with infertility has officially ended," she writes on her Facebook wall. "I am pregnant with twins and Charlie and I are so happy, thank you so much to Dr. John Ho Cheng and everyone at the Central Valley Fertility Clinic for all their help and kind words," she explains.

Afton Elaine Burton was actually Charlie Manson's fincée for a short time, but the wedding was called off when it was revealled that Burton "only wanted his corpse for display" once he was dead. Poor Charlie. As for the image used in the HOAX story, it comes from a 2015 Rolling Stone article titled "Charles Manson's Future Mother-in-Law Says the Wedding Is Still On."
