As multiple accusations surfaced on the internet of abuse allegations against Marilyn Manson, the LA County Shreiff’s Department is taking notice.
Law enforcement sources tell TMZ … detectives from the L.A. County Sheriff’s Department plan to meet with one of Manson’s alleged victims in the coming days, and we’re told the meeting was the result of a wave of online allegations made by Manson’s exes.
Our sources say Sheriff’s deputies want to determine if a crime was committed if it falls under their jurisdiction and if it warrants further investigation.
The FBI were the first to open an invesgitation on the abuse claims, but TMZ reports they have passed along the investigation to Los Angeles law enforcement.
