Charles Manson was hospitalized on Tuesday for reported gastrointestinal problems after being rushed to an emergency room from the California State Prison in Corcoran.

Details were sketchy because California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation officials cited federal and state medical laws surrounding Manson's hospitalization in Bakersfield, reported the Los Angeles Times.

One of the Times sources said Manson was seriously ill but could not provide specific information.

Manson, 82, one of the country's most notorious criminals who is serving nine life sentences for conspiracy to commit murder back in 1969, was first treated at the hospital's emergency room, said TMZ. The hospital is about an hour away from the prison.

"We do not disclose inmate movements for safety and security reasons," said department spokeswoman Terry Thornton, per the Times.

A source told the Bakersfield Californian that Manson was taken to Mercy Hospital there and was signed in under the name Joe Doe on Tuesday, but it wasn't clear if Manson remained at the hospital there or was transported to another facility.

Manson and his followers were connected with a chain of deaths in 1969 that Manson reportedly thought would start a race war between whites and African-Americans, reported CNN. The first set of murders included actress Sharon Tate, who was eight months pregnant, and coffee fortune heiress Abigail Folger.

Tate's husband, celebrity movie director Roman Polanski, was out of the country at the time.

Supermarket executive Leno LaBianca and his wife, Rosemary were killed at their home in another set of murders blamed on the Manson family.

Manson and three of his followers – Susan Atkins, Patricia Krenwinkel and Leslie Van Houten – went on trial the following year for the deaths. Manson, who ordered but did not participate in the killings, originally was sentenced to death but the death penalty was  abolished in the state.

His concurrent sentences were commuted to life in prison, said CNN. Since then, Manson has been denied parole 12 times and his next hearing is scheduled for 2027.
