Manson grandson Jason Freeman, 41, told the NY Daily News he's not sure why the campaign was pulled, or how he'll get to California to claim Manson's body.

As CrimeOnline previously reported, Manson passed away in a California hospital on November 19, close to the prison where he was serving life for order some of his cult members to go on a murderous "Helter Skelter" spree.

Freeman, 41, said he was on a Thanksgiving walk in some OH woods when he learned the crowd-sourcing page set up by his friend John Jones had been deactivated. "His whole life he lived with the pain of feeling unclaimed", the post read. We must not let this happen in death. "Together we can help Jason bring his grandfather home and prove to the world Charles was loved and will be claimed!"

The money would reportedly be used for lawyer fees, travel arrangements and all necessary costs of living for Jason. At the time of writing, things were not looking hopeful.

The original goal was $15,000.

"Support is rising for this campaign", claimed the website. He had been serving decades in the California Department of Corrections for his role in multiple murders committed by Manson Family cult followers.

Manson was convicted for ordering a killing spree in August of 1969.

He said it was a "leap of faith" on Manson's part to trust him with the book, Charles Manson Now. California Gov. Jerry Brown - for the second time in less than a year - must decide whether to approve or deny her release.

Freeman told the Herald to contact his manager, business agent Joe Townley, with questions about his plans for Manson's body.

Reynolds said he closely followed the news of Manson's passing last Sunday at a hospital in Kern County, adding, "I remember thinking, 'I know he is in prison and will never get out, but I don't need this friendship".

Ben said: "He should be given a plot of land and he should be given a proper headstone that people can go and steal or break or chip pieces off and spray paint - do whatever the hell they want to do - and I'm going to be responsible for getting it done. But, if, in my work, I can help transform Sharon's legacy from murder victim to a symbol for victims' rights, I will have accomplished what I set out to do".
