Dying Manson family member Susan Atkins denied likely last parole shot

September 3, 2009

California (ChattahBox) — Susan Atkins, a disciple of of 1960s cult leader Charles Manson convicted nearly forty years ago in some of the most notorious murders in US history,  has been denied parole again and probably for the last time.  Atkins, a 61-year-old convicted murderer who is terminally ill with brain cancer and could die within months, lost her 18th bid for release on Wednesday as a California parole board has voted unanimously to keep her in prison.  Atkins was convicted in 1971 of taking part in seven “Manson Family” murders, including that of heavily pregnant actress Sharon Tate, the wife of filmmaker Roman Polanski.  Her death sentence was commuted to life in prison in 1972, when the California Supreme Court abolished capital punishment. Atkins will next be eligible for parole in 2012.

On that fateful night, Manson told his brain washed family that it was ‘time for Helter Skelter’. Named after a Beatles’ song that he believed contained a hidden prophesy of the coming Apocalypse, Helter Skelter was his plan to create a race war.  He directed four of his followers, Susan Atkins, Patricia Krenwinkel, Leslie Van Houten, and Tex Watson, to the home of Sharon Tate who was hosting a party with somel high profile Hollywood people .The four killed Tate, her unborn child, Abigail Folger, Wojciech Frykowski, Jay Sebring, and Steven Parent and scrawled the word “Pig” in blood on the front door before leaving. The next night several members of The Family, including a few from the night before, as well as Manson himself, slaughtered Leno and Rosemary LaBianca.
