Krenwinkel was one of the notorious Manson family cults, led by Charles Manson, which preached a bizarre philosophy incorporating Christianity, Scientology and the hippie movement.

She was a 19-year-old secretary living with her older sister when she met Manson, 33, at a party in the 1960s.

On August 8, 1969, Manson ordered four of his bloodthirsty followers – Susan Atkins, Linda Kasabian, Krenwinkel and Charles “Tex” Watson – to the Beverly Hills address of movie actress Tate with the instruction to kill everyone in the house.

In addition to Tate, who was married to director Roman Polanski and pregnant with his child, they murdered four other people at the property that fateful night.

Less than 24 hours later, the murderous gang – along with Leslie Van Houten and Steve ‘Clem’ Grogan – savagely tortured, murdered and mutilated wealthy Los Angeles couple Rosemary and Leno LaBianca.

Krenwinkel stabbed LaBianca in the stomach with a fork, then took a rag and wrote “Helter Skelter”, “Rise” and “Death to Pigs” on the walls in his blood.

Manson and his accomplices were all sent for the murders except for Kasabian who testified against them and played no direct role in the murders.

A California parole board has now recommended Krenwinkel’s release for the first time in five decades.

The parole recommendation will be reviewed by the legal division of the state parole board before likely being forwarded to Governor Gavin Newsom for a decision within five months.

He previously rejected parole recommendations for other supporters of Charles Manson – who died in prison in 2017.

Since Krenwinkel was last denied parole in 2017, new laws now require the panel to consider she committed the murders at a young age and is now an elderly prisoner.

Krenwinkel’s attorney, Keith Wattley, said relatives of his victims made the same objections during the hearing as prosecutors have in the past.

He said: “She is completely transformed from the person she was when she committed this crime, that’s all it takes to get parole.

“I hope the governor will recognize that he shouldn’t be playing political games with people’s lives.

“The governor would block her parole not because he’s afraid of her, but because he doesn’t love her. And the law doesn’t allow that.”

Krenwinkel is currently behind bars at the California Institution for Women in East Los Angeles.

The youngest member of Charles Manson’s killer cult was also due to be released from prison in 2019 after a parole board found her fit for release.

Leslie Van Houten was serving life for her role in the gang’s infamous murder spree when she was just 19.

It comes as the luxury hilltop mansion on the same land where Manson’s grisly murders took place went on the market in January for $85million.

Known as the Cielo Estate, the nine-bedroom, 18-bathroom block is owned by “Full House” creator Jeff Franklin.

Franklin originally bought the house for $6 million in 2007, although it was not yet finished – after it was demolished following the 1969 murders.

The sprawling property, which sits on 3.6 acres of land, was rebuilt and revived by architect Richard Landry.

The home spans 21,000 square feet and boasts incredible views of Los Angeles, complete with an infinity pool, home theater, spa, gym, and even a hair salon.

Another mansion where the Manson family murdered Leno and Rosemary LaBianca found a buyer who paid below the asking price of $2.2 million.

The killer murder cult that shocked the world

Manson began building his cult in 1967 when he began gathering his small group of young, largely female devotees – mostly from broken middle-class homes.

In the summer of 1969, he led his followers in murder as part of a plan to incite a race war, prosecutors say.

He ordered four of his followers – Susan Atkins, Linda Kasabian, Patricia Krenwinkel and Charles ‘Tex’ Watson – to the Beverly Hills address of movie actress Sharon Tate with instructions to kill everyone. world inside.

Less than 24 hours later, the gang tortured, murdered and mutilated wealthy LA couple Rosemary and Leno LaBianca.

They used their blood to write “Rise”, “Death to Pigs” and “Helter Skelter”, a reference to the Beatles song, on the walls and the fridge door.

Mansona and his accomplices were all sent for the murders except for Kasabian who testified against them and played no direct role in the murders.
