Inmate Stabs Tex Watson

Friday, December 2nd, 2016


Dec. 2 – An inmate at Mule Creek Prison stabbed Charles “Tex” Watson in the back and then attempted to throw him over a second story tier. Watson spoke of the attack, which occurred on the morning of February 16, 2013, at his parole hearing last month.

According to Watson, he was washing his clothes in a sink on the second tier when an unidentified inmate started hovering around him with a rolled up magazine in his hand. The inmate asked Watson if he knew anything about Kabala, and Watson replied that he didn’t. As Watson walked away, the inmate began stabbing Watson in the back with a sharpened paint brush.

Watson told the Board of Parole Hearings that he didn’t think the inmate could hurt him because of the man’s small stature. According to Watson, he initially thought the man was punching him and was unaware that he was being stabbed.

The inmate then began trying to lift Watson and push him over the tier but Watson was able to hang onto the railing until staff intervened.

According to Terry Thornton, Deputy Press Secretary for the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation, both Watson and the attacker complied with staff’s orders to lie down. Thornton was unable to disclose the attacker’s name.

According to Watson, the inmate was formerly in the Enhanced Outpatient Program, which is a program for inmates who have difficulty adjusting in the prison’s general population, but are not disabled enough to require inpatient care.

    Too bad the job didn’t get done! Now he knows what it feels like…

    Stabby Tex gets stabbed…the irony.

  4. JeriLynn Wilson says:

    Well, isn’t that ironic?? It’s hard to believe someone didn’t put the chop on him sooner.

  5. flip says:

    Ironically, this story may suggest one of the best arguments for paroling Tex….get him back out into the wide world where someone can do him properly.

  6. Brokenspell says:

    Give that man a sharper paint brush

  7. cindogg says:

    His “luck” is running out. Jesus isn’t too happy with Tex.

  8. Lee says:

    That parole board commissioner couldn’t of said it better, when she stated, “You know even the whole physical part of murdering someone with a knife is so awful and painful. A knife slice cuts through the skin, the fascia, the nerve endings, the muscles, the arteries, the internal organs. It’s an awful way to die. It’s so up close and personal. When you were holding those people down you were holding and they were looking in your eyes. They could smell your breath. You could probably smell their fear.” I am so happy she told him that, because I don’t think Watson truly can grasp what he did to all his victims. Not only the physical pain of being sliced with a knife over & over, but the mental terror of knowing you were next. Sharon Tate had it about the worst, because she witnessed the majority of the attacks right up close. She saw them stabbing & stabbing & stabbing with blood spurting out, and screams and calls for God. She must of been completely out of her mind. The brain almost shuts down in a way when people go into shock To only hope that she didn’t suffer as much because her brain went into shock is only reasonable. Also, just to note, I don’t appreciate the officials giving Tex Watson the ability to procreate while in prison. That is just absolutely revolting that he was able to spend the night with that slut he married, and stick his dick inside of her. I am appalled he was allowed to do this multiple times. He also lied about his parents supporting his wife & kids until the day they died. That bitch was on welfare, because the creep Bill Nelson exposed them! Watson is the most revolting one in the family. I can’t stand his fake Christianity and the way he constantly licks his lips while talking. NO PAROLE EVER!

    I feel very sorry that Tex was attacked by that man and thankgoodness he survived it. He is very remorseful and repentant for his crimes and is an extremely nice man. I am so glad i have started to correspond with him and made friends and will continue to correspond with him too. He is a very good christian man and has made an amazing transformation.

  10. Kathy says:

    I don’t think Ole Tex cares what his victims went through. I don’t think he is even capable of caring about anyone other than himself.

  11. Paul McGovern says:

    You really have serious issues Sasha…what a shame Sharon and her unborn baby arent able to spring back to life along with all the others this piece of scum so brutally killed…he is a liar and a coward…the real injustice is that he is still breathing…Sasha, you are a nutjob

  12. Sasha Musgrave Travers says:

    I believe that he is capable of caring Kathy, he has really changed from the drug induced man of 1969 to the nice compassionate man of today and I know that doesn’t in any way make anything allright, at least he is doing his prison sentence and converting people to christianity and admits full responsibility for the murders

  13. Sasha Musgrave Travers says:

    Paul, I don’t think I have serious issues. The way I look at it is that the Tex Watson of 2017 is the good holy man converting the unbelievers in prison, that is the person I like. I can’t in any way identify with the Tex Watson of 1969. Yes, it would be lovely if Sharon and her baby could come out of their graves and the others too. Watson committed terrible crimes, ones I believe that he didn’t want to do but I believe it was out of fear of Manson which made him kill for him. Without Manson, he never would have killed. Yes, I admit his crimes were heinous but he is very truly and very profoundly remorseful and repentant and as sorry as he can be, though it won’t ever change things for him, he never boasts about the crimes and is serving out his prison sentence as required and doing his duty to society

  14. Heather love says:

    I agree 10000% with you! I’m reading Restless Souls. Its really good. If you haven’t read it, may I suggest it? Talks a lot about TeX. I’ve been reading books and anything I can get my hands on for some time now. This is the most bizarre case I’ve ever read about. I usually star reading Helter Skelter this in July so I can be reading it on the anniversaries of their deaths. Its something I’ve done for a few years now. Anyways, sorry to ramble but its not often I can talk to someone about this case because they just don’t know much. Good day. ..

  15. JeriLynn Wilson says:

    You are joking, right???

  16. JeriLynn Wilson says:

    The previous comment was meant for Sasha……

  17. Carol says:

    They all “take responsibility,” but then they all explain why they are not to blame: …it’s Charlie’s fault, they were on drugs, they were young, they are victims of abuse. Hilarious.

    Charlie’s real talent was the ability to discern other psycho/sociopaths who would kill. As he said (paraphrasing), he didn’t tell them what to do; he told them what they could do. He gave them the permission to be themselves. Watson is sickening and I feel sorry for anyone who is naive enough to believe he is a Christian (Didn’t they think Manson was Christ?), or that he has changed. Watson and the others feel no guilt or shame and call themselves victims.

  18. Bryan says:

    Is there anything in his religion or in the Holy Bible that says that if you commit mass murder, you must show genuine remorse and repentance to make things right with your maker? How about if you sin against God, society, the law, the victims, and their families, you have to serve out your life sentence and forfeit any attempts at freedom if you want to be received into His holy kingdom of heaven?

  19. Kenneth W Hartsock says:

    To Sasha Musgrave Travers: You’re absolutely wrong about Watson “not wanting to commit these crime, but did it out of fear of Manson.” Watson by his own admission, committed these crime out of devotion and loyalty to Charles Manson, whom he considered to be Jesus Christ. It had nothing to do with fear. It’s ok to give Watson some grace, but lets not go too far. Yes, today he is a Christian and a changed man – thank God. But on the night of Aug 9th 1969, he was a vicious cold-blooded, merciless killer.

    “I’m the devil and I’m here to do the devils business”

  20. Rosie says:

    Whether he is remorseful or sorry does not matter one iota. He put 8 people and an unborn child in their graves. Sharon Tate and her unborn son, Voytek Frykowski, Steve Parent, Jay Sebring, Abigail Folger, the LaBianca’s, Shorty Shea. All of them brutally murdered. It never ceases to amaze me how many find God once sent to prison. Watson made the choice to murder and even laughed about it afterwards, comparing the victims at the Tate house to “chickens running around without their heads”. He did some of the most heinous crimes imaginable. Now he claims God has forgiven him. Whatever. You continue to fall for his lies. Your choice but I hope he never is released!

  21. Steve says:

    Sasha is the best example of the type of woman that has this killer’s children, wants to sleep with a killer. Obviously under the spell of celebrity and wants it for herself too. I’m certain she hasn’t had a real relationship with a honest man ever, way too boring for her. Lack of empathy for the innocent victims is telling, she feels sorry for the killer. Hopefully she hasn’t raised children and passed her warped sense of compassion on to them, their most likely torturing their pets and getting a slap on the wrist.

  22. Tre says:

    Nowhere in the Bible does it say that if you sin, you have to forever suffer for that sin or be punished for that sin until you die. To say this lady, Sasha is “the type of woman who sleeps with a killer and has his children” is a bit of an exaggeration. You don’t know her. She hasn’t expressed a desire, from what I’ve read, to to be Watdon’s lover or anything like that. If she were talking about Manson-I’d think she was nuts too because he didn’t ever show a shred of remorse. But she has a right to her opinion. She has given this man the opportunity to tell her his side of things and she has chosen to forgive him. That’s her prerogative. And if you people want to bring the Bible or God into it-I guarantee God has forgiven him if he sincerely asked for forgiveness. It doesn’t say, “Christ died for everyone’s sins but Tex Watson”; and read the book of Acts and the conversion of Saul, who became the Apostle Paul-he was persecuting Christians-think ISIS,if you will, and Jesus called him to work for Him and transformed him into who we know as Paul. Would you tell God that Paul couldn’t have helped write the books of the Bible because of his past? I’m not arguing for or against Watson because I don’t know his heart. My point is it’s possible for God to change people. And it’s ridiculous to attack Sasha because she wants to believe this man has had a change in his heart. Only God knows for sure. But she is 100% right, that God could be using him to save souls in prison. The Bible talks about prison quite a lot.
