A man who posted his phone calls with Charles Manson online said he spoke with the prisoner two days before his death.
Ben Gurecki told The Sun that he got a call from Manson, who was convicted of the murders of seven people in 1969. Gurecki said that he’s been speaking with Manson for more than 20 years.
The Sun posted a transcript of what he said, and it’s mostly gibberish.
“Not yet found just a dream of hearsay. Who’s, what’s, why’s, for what?” he said. “We each can make up our own dreams with the storyline as soon as we are no where we can change.”
“As soon as I get up, out, around me will become a team. The beast, a priest, midnight and not as much as all,” he added. “Nothing with everyone and everything over and gone to start backwards again and again to nowhere and nothing again.”

Gurecki shared the audio with The Sun and said that he’ll release the recording on YouTube later this year.
“To where you know it all as forever and some more, nothing again to where you know it all as forever and some more,” Manson said before he was cut off by officials from Corcoran State Prison. “Love for all. You are or could maybe and more. Not at – ”
Manson died of natural causes Sunday evening at a Kern County hospital, the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation said in a statement. It gave no further details of the circumstances surrounding his death.
He had been serving a life sentence at the nearby Corcoran State Prison for ordering the murders of nine people, including actress Sharon Tate, Reuters noted.
Long after Manson had largely faded from headlines, he loomed large as a symbol of the terror he unleashed in the summer of 1969.
“The very name Manson has become a metaphor for evil,” the late Vincent Bugliosi, who prosecuted Manson, told the Los Angeles Times in 1994.
A recent photograph showed the gray-bearded killer’s face still bearing the scar of a swastika he carved into his forehead decades earlier.
Manson became one of the 20th century’s most notorious criminals when he directed his mostly young, female followers to murder seven people in what prosecutors said was part of a plan to incite a race war.
Reports say that his body will be cremated if no next of kin comes to claim it within 10 days of his death.
Reuters contributed to this report.
