Criminal charges may be brought against Marilyn Manson after an investigation into allegations of sexual abuse was concluded.
Actress Evan Rachel Wood and several women have accused Manson of abusing them physically and sexually.
The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department has finished its investigation into the alleged sexual assault of Marilyn Manson, and it has given its findings to the district attorney’s office for possible criminal prosecution.
After numerous women accused the singer of sexual and physical assault, Manson, whose actual name is Brian Warner, was the subject of a 19-month investigation by the sheriff’s special victims bureau. The sheriff’s department had, as of Tuesday, released “partial case material” detailing its investigation, according to a statement from the district attorney’s office to BuzzFeed News.
The statement read, “There is other evidence that is still pending, but we do not have a date for the new submission from the LASD.” “After we receive everything, seasoned prosecutors will thoughtfully and thoroughly analyse everything submitted before deciding whether to file. Although this investigation will take some time, you can be assured that our office treats these accusations seriously.”
Both Manson’s lawyer and the sheriff’s office did not respond to a request for comment right away. Manson has in the past refuted the charges. He filed a defamation, fraud, and conspiracy lawsuit against Illma Gore and actor Evan Rachel Wood in March for their alleged abuse of him.
His defamation lawsuit has been compared to the recent Johnny Depp and Amber Heard case; Depp and Manson are acquaintances, and court documents contained texts between them in which they disparaged their love partners. Heard received a more than $10 million fine for claiming to be a victim of domestic violence. Later, Depp expressed his satisfaction at having been exonerated in court, while Heard saw the decision as a defeat for women.
In February 2021, after Wood complained on Instagram that her ex-fiance had “horrifically mistreated” her for years, the Manson probe got under way.
Wood stated, “He began grooming me when I was a youngster and horribly abused me for years. I was coerced and brainwashed into submitting.
Model Sarah McNeilly, who posted on Instagram that Manson “tortured” her, locked her in rooms, and hurled her against a wall, is among the other women who have accused Manson of abusing them. Ashley Lindsay Morgan, a different model, said on Instagram that she first met Manson sometime in 2009 or 2010, and that they soon moved in together.
“There was coercion, physical assault, sexual violence, and abuse,” “Morgan penned.
Ashley Walters, a different lady, said that because of her abusive connection with Manson, she suffers from PTSD.
Walters posted on Instagram, saying, “I cannot stand by and let this happen to others. It became evident the harm he’s inflicted; he continues to inflict on so many. “Brian Warner must answer for his actions.
In addition, Gabriella, a woman, said Manson had abused her by cutting her during sex and taking and sending other people pictures of her while she was nude.
In spite of the accusations, Manson has maintained his notoriety in Hollywood. He received a 2022 Grammy nomination. He was a featured artist on the album Donda, and Kanye West frequently invited him to play.
