Patricia Krenwinkel, who was convicted for her role in the Manson Family killings of Rosemary and Leno LaBianca and those at Sharon Tate's home, is the latest elderly former Manson follow to receive a parole recommendation in California. Sharon Tate's surviving sister opposes all of them.
Leslie Van Houten, 72, who stabbed Rosemary LaBianca 16 times in 1969 on Manson Family orders, has applied for parole 21 times since 1982. It's the fifth time a governor of California has overruled a recommendation for her parole.
"These hearings are very hard on her," Leslie Van Houten’s appeals lawyer, Rich Pfeiffer stated. It was the fifth time since 2016 that the 72-year-old former Manson Family follower has been recommended for parole.
Patrick Boos claims he had the notorious cult leader's ashes inserted into two tattoos on his head: An "X," which mimics the "X" that the cult leader carved into his own head, and the phrase "Helter Skelter."
