Marilyn Manson reveals plans to commit the perfect murder

Published By Alexandra Heilbron on Feb 04, 2021

Marilyn Manson Twitter photoJust as Marilyn Manson's abusive behavior towards females has come to light, excerpts from his previously published autobiography, The Long Hard Road Out of Hell, have come to the forefront.

Five women, including ex-fiancée Evan Rachel Wood, have come forward to accuse Manson, 52, of abuse, which has caused media outlets to take another look at his memoir, in which he gives details of a murder he plotted against an ex-girlfriend. He also talks about threatening to rape a woman and murdering animals.

The woman he almost murdered was a former lover and bandmate called Nancy. Manson calls his plan "the perfect murder." He wrote: “While I didn’t think it was right to take a human life, I didn’t think it was right to deny myself the chance of causing someone to die either, especially someone whose existence meant so little to the world and to herself."

He and a friend went to her home, carrying "kerosene, matches and rags," but a homeless man had started to follow them, and when they heard sirens heading to an nearby emergency, Manson became "paranoid" and "too scared of getting caught and sent to prison."

Manson says when he ran into Nancy years later at a club, "The old hatred welled up again, and I wanted to do something heinous and more permanent to her, but I couldn’t find out where she lived."

On Monday, Evan Rachel Wood, who is 18 years younger than Manson, posted a message on Instagram that read: "The name of my abuser is Brian Warner, also known to the world as Marilyn Manson. He started grooming me when I was a teenager and horrifically abused me for years. I was brainwashed and manipulated into submission. I am done living in fear of retaliation, slander, or blackmail. I am here to expose this dangerous man and call out the many industries that have enabled him, before he ruins any more lives. I stand with the many victims who will no longer be silent.”

Manson told Spin magazine in 2009 that he fantasized about killing Wood, then 21, by smashing her skull in with a sledgehammer because she left him.

The shock rocker was recently dropped by his record label and booking agent in light of the abuse allegations, which he denied in an Instagram post that stated: "My intimate relationships have always been entirely consensual with like-minded partners. Regardless of how — and why — others are now choosing to misrepresent the past, that is the truth." ~Alexandra Heilbron

    He sounds like someone that should be in a mental health facility for people who are dangerous and cannot be helped. He shouldn't be out there thinking about and or doing these kind of things. If it were anyone else they would have put him on psychiatric hold for voicing he wanted to kill other people. Manson is really disturbed. I'm glad Evan and others got away from this sicko.

    I once told someone "I'll kill you"... I was like 7 years old. Can't wait to become famous and then have the idiots from Internet burning me at the stake for that.

    He's hardly 7, R.

    With an ugly face like his, what were his "victims' thinking? They must have had pretty low self esteem to get involved with a creepy looking freak like that in the first place. They too need psychiatric help. How can anyone admit to hooking up with that gross POS?

    I agree totally there is something not right with This man (I use the word loosely) but I’m also very confused about the fact that his ex wife and former lover say they never experienced any off his abuse. I don’t think an abuser picks and chooses who he abuses , normally it’s every and any women close to his life 🤷‍♀️Any way he is finished in the industry, when his name is mentioned this is all people will remember

    Post by Dumb Person above: "I once told someone “I’ll kill you”… I was like 7 years old. Can’t wait to become famous and then have the idiots from Internet burning me at the stake for that." Quote from article: "He and a friend went to her home, carrying “kerosene, matches and rags,”" He wasn't 7, and it wasn't a metaphor. He went to her residence with an intention to murder. You either have a reading problem, or you're dumb as a shit.

    And we are shocked? Wtf

    Fame is a very strange thing. If he wasn't famous would you ever want to know this person?

    To address a few comments made. First off it does not matter what an abuser looks like...they f*** with your head...they lure you in and then break you down. They beat at your self esteem and some of them do it so well that even the most intelligent and secure don't see it coming until it's too late..BC THEY ARE GOOD AT IT. But to think that an abuser will ALWAYS abuse EVERYONE they are with is absurd. I have known people who got the shit beat out of them by someone yet the next person their abuser was with they never mistreated in anyway shape or form. You also are not in their shoes and have no idea what happens behind closed doors. To blame a victim or a survivor is asinine and shallow. It's easy to ask why didn't you leave or why did you stay? Even easier to ask why didn't you call the cops...instead you should be asking why there isn't more help available? Why is this not considered a hate crime? Why aren't there more resources to help get the victims away and start over safely? But the answer to the wrong questions are all the same...FEAR, fear of the unknown fear for your life or your kids life. Fear no one will believe you and then you not only have the trauma of being victimized you then have to prove it bc people think they have all the answers when they don't know the circumstances. Abusers will control what you say, do, wear, how you think, act and who your friends are. They will isolate you from any support or trash talk you...they do toxic triangulation and it doesn't stop once you leave ESPECIALLY if kids are involved. They make you believe you are nothing without them. It's a vicious cycle and not always an everyday thing. It's called the power and control wheel. Sometimes it takes a long time for someone to realize that they are being manipulated and controlled. The bruises on the outside heal quickly but the scars on the inside don't ever go away. I am so extremely proud of Ms Wood for standing up and finally facing her demon bc obviously she is finally taking control back and not letting him have the power over her anymore. It takes a strength that you can not fathom bc regardless of what people think the victims honestly love their Abusers...well they love the person who they(abuser) was initially and try to fix what they (the victim)thinks is their fault. When in all actuality the abuser is just a sick person who needs help...which btw there are not many resources for abusers to get any help. Some of them actually don't know why they are that way and wNt to change...some... Don't judge and assume what you don't know

    Well said and you are speaking the truth Rsarge!! My family members experienced the same kind of abuse and did not know how to get out. No one knew because they were afraid to say anything to the family for fear it would set their spouses off. You speak for many abusers who have no resources. The funny thing is their abusive spouses NEVER hurt their new partners only my relatives. Go Figure!!
