Charles Manson Is My Father-Woman tells world of horrific discovery

Taken quietly into care as a baby, Rebecca Evans-Bonyadi was full of hope for tearful reunions and a happy family future when she began tracking down her natural parents as a teenager.

But the 15-year-old girl’s cherished dream became a living nightmare when she discovered her real dad was one of the world’s most notorious murderers.

Rebecca had lived with 10 different foster families and had been determined to find her biological mum and dad when she was confronted by the sinister truth.. her father was Charles Manson. And the realisation she was related to the US serial killer and cult leader left a lasting legacy on her.

She read with horror about his weird sect and their gruesome murder of actress Sharon Tate and eight others and it has taken her more than 25 years to publicly admit: “I’m Charles Manson’s daughter.” Her anguish is shared by Matthew Roberts, 42, who told the world he was Charles Manson’s son in 2009.

In an exclusive interview, Rebecca, now 41, told the Mirror: “When I was in high school I began to get curious about my background and who my real parents were. The truth came as a complete shock and at 15 it was very difficult to deal with.

“I was hurt and confused and I didn’t understand why nobody had ever told me. As I grew up it was hard to have relationships with people, to describe my past. I was worried it might scare some people away. Because of what he had done, I was scared people would apply that to me and I’m not that kind of a person at all. I found it difficult to get close to people and haven’t been able to tell anyone about my past – until now.”

Despite moving between numerous foster families in Los Angeles, Rebecca insists she had a happy childhood but as she hit her teens she wanted to discover her true roots.

She started doing some research through the LA County system and found out she had been taken into care from a place called Spahn Ranch.

Unbeknown to Rebecca, the ranch in the mountains above Chatsworth, California, was the secluded spot where Manson lived with his followers.

Ranch owner George Spahn, then 80, had allowed the group to move in rent free, in exchange for housework and sexual favours from young female members of the cult. In the summer of 1969, Manson and some of his “family” members committed a series of nine horrific murders. Victims included pregnant star Tate – the wife of film director Roman Polanski.

In 1971 Manson, along with Susan Atkins, Patricia Krenwinkel, Leslie Van Houten and Charles Watson, were convicted of the murders. Manson, described as “the icon of evil”, was sentenced to death but when California scrapped the death penalty in 1972 it was commuted to life imprisonment. He is still behind bars in California State Prison in Corcoran, aged 76.

As unsuspecting Rebecca later continued to delve into her family history, she contacted her social worker, who handed over her birth certificate, and managed to track down her biological mother, Andrea Kavakow.

Sales assistant Rebecca said: “When I asked her who my father was, she told me how she had met Charles Manson in the 60s, had started hanging out with him and had basically became one of the members of his group.

Then she said Charles Manson was my father. Of course, I knew the name and that he was the killer of Sharon Tate because the case has been so widely publicised. I wasn’t angry or tearful – at first I just felt disbelief. Then everything started to make sense... how I ended up taken from my parents and I finally had the answers. “Bizarrely, I even started looking for similarities between me and the pictures of him, but I don’t think there are any. Then I started doing more research and had really mixed emotions.

The things I found out were obviously very shocking, but I was more curious than anything else, and I tried not to judge him because I really didn’t know him.” Rebecca became so curious she even considered trying to visit Manson in jail. “I also thought about writing him a letter,” she confessed.

“I kept getting interested in finding him and talking to him, but then I would get scared and back off because of what I might find out. In the future, I might contact him or other ‘family’ members and talk to them, but not right now. I’d want to know what motivated them and what kind of life they led.

Rebecca says she is still haunted by what had been her dark secret.

"I didn't tell anybody when I found out and in 25 years I’ve only told my half brother and sister,” she said.

“I was completely in shock and afraid of what people would say or think.”

But despite all she knows about her serial killer father, Rebecca refuses to condemn Charles Manson.

“I haven’t got the right to form an opinion about him or judge him because I haven’t met him,” she said.


The one person who understands Rebecca’s distress is musician Matthew, who discovered his father’s identity after getting in touch with his biological mother 12 years ago. She revealed he was conceived when she was raped by Manson in 1967. Rebecca said: “I read about Matthew and wanted to meet him. He plays in a band so I went to a few of his shows and eventually introduced myself.”

Matthew, who bears a haunting resemblance to his killer father, confessed: “When Rebecca first told me I didn’t believe it. I thought she was a bit nutty.

“But I eventually gave her my phone number. We didn’t really talk about Charles Manson. We just hung out together. What could we say? Maybe we didn’t want to accept it. I think we were both still dealing with our feelings about it.

“I’ve never had a blood relative or any kind of genetic connection to anybody and one of the main reasons I went public was in the hope that somebody like Rebecca would come forward.

“I think there are probably other children out there who were parcelled off to different parents and have no idea who their father is.

Calling out to MS. AC for her thoughts and opionion. Oh MS. AC ~

So Patty was trying to clean up the formatting on this thread, hit the draft button instead of the update button, and lost two of your comments plus moved it to the top of the blog again. Liz is soooo gonna dock Patty's paycheck.

MrPoirot said...

If somebody is crazy enough to want to marry Richard Ramirez then I don't doubt there are people crazy enough to claim Manson is their dad. Famehags you know? There are some astoundingly crazy people in this world. I don't know how I ended up so ordinary. LOL!

testing testing testing. Maury Povich has it done all the time.
Isn't the DNA of every inmate on record. Given that, proving CM is the father would be as easy as filling a cavity. Any story with a claim like this one without a test is just nonsense.

Matt said...

Man hands!!!

rfoster1 said...

Until these two trot out legitimate DNA test results backing their claims, I'm gonna call bullsh*t on their claims.

rfoster1 said...

My mom just called with a secret she's been holding onto for 55 years. Evidently, I am also Arnold Schwarzenegger's love child. How do ya like them apples?

You know, they do have the same facial features, UGLY!

Does anybody know of any good ugly jokes.

Methinks she's a he.

Hi folks, sorry I didn't respond sooner... no I'net due to storms.

I don't know if I believe this woman or not. Why won't she write to Charles and ask?

The jury's still out on Matthew Robert, too. He looks like Charles, he sounds like Charles, he has the same musical talent and the same learning difficulties. The same manner of speaking.

However, when I asked if he wanted some hair for DNA, he made a lot of excuses about the cost of the procedure. Okay, wouldn't one of those TV programs pay for DNA testing, just for a few more minutes of advertising revenue?

Matthew has letters from Charles. Other friends say he's bogus.

Charles himself doesn't know, for sure... he says that he's never raped anyone... and hey, there is no reason for someone with eight million groupies to rape... it was more likely wild vigorous but CONSENSUAL sex.

At NO point while the family was together did CM have 8 million groupies.

Why would he need to hit Gypsy. Why would he need to hit Diane.
Didn't he rape Sherry? Why would he need to do any of the violent acts he chose to do. He was a ex con who was violent towards women while out of prison.

I think when people say rape they maybe referring to sex with underage (like ouisch dianne lake) which is considered statuatory rape ( even though it may have been consenual).

St. Circumstance said...

Candy and nuts- personally I do refer to that when I say rape- although I believe he did force himself on a few as well...

St. Circumstance said...

But the ones he will admit to- if with underage chics- is rape just the same...

Telling me a 16 year old girl high on acid understood what was best for her- doesn't cut it with me...

Ken619 said...

With all the girls envolved, they don't ever make it a point that CM committed statuatory rape. But at least a couple of times, the actual word rape is referenced.

St. Circumstance said...

Yeah- it is most likely a fact that he is guilty of both...

but even he admits to one

candy and nuts said...

well emotions run high at 13 14 15 16 this is when hormones are run rampant in teens crying anger rebellion fighting parents and the 1960's with "droping out...turning on"" was strong from what Ive read for example both Ruth ANNe 13 and Diane LAke 14 had some communal type living situations otherwise I dont understand how their parents would allow them to leave with a man who is 32 ( or what M age was at this time), however I do find it coincidental that both Ruth ANNe and DIAne Lake both left when cornered in a legal situation or just left from fear perhaps coincidence perhaps they were too young to be in such an adult situation because both left both didnt shave their heads RUTH had her baby not with the family ( as did SAndra GOOD who had her baby in a hospital...another topic) so just things to think on here

if you search on this blog for the Details magazine article posted, some place in that article he says why he wont do a DNA. he said he is pretty sure charlie is his father but if they did the dna test and found out he was not charlies son-he would be terribly embaressed.

i would love to contact matthew.

candy and nuts said...

It quite evident MAtthew is M's son and why he would embarressed I dont understand part of MR agenda and recognition to his band RISING SON is that he is M's son so that doesnt make sense IMO

beauders said...

hippiechick,
i think it is a she just for the fact that no crossdresser or transgender woman who be caught dead let alone photographed without a bra on! at least to my eyes i don't think she has a bra yet has large breasts.

fiona1933 said...

That's a woman?

Janson2112 said...

Wow, This site is far better than the rest, but Do yall not know Michael is dead? He committed suicide a few years ago

Janson2112 said...

Sorry meant Mathew, whatever his name, the wannabe manson child

Janson2112 said...

or sorry or am I thinking of someone else, guess I shouldn't post while tokin......

hexjoe53 said...

I dought manson would rape anyone, he had so many groupies,women who make these kind of charges are usually ugly! and NO,it is nNOT the same as rape to have sex with an under age girl. Not every girl under some legal age is a vestel virgin. Everything is called rape today, in fact there are now statutory rape cases with adult women.
