61 year-old Susan Atkins, Charles Manson devotee and convicted mass-murderer, was denied release from prison where she is serving a life-sentence for her role in the Tate/LaBianca murders 40 years ago.

Atkins is suffering from cancer, paralysis, and last year she had a leg amputated. She was requesting a compassionate release so that she could die outside of prison. She appeared at the hearing in a gurney, bloated and weak.

“The one-time member of the Manson Family was wheeled in to the hearing room on a gurney dressed in a hospital-style gown, her face bloated and her head covered by a purple and pink knitted cap. The cross she once carved into her forehead as a sign of loyalty to Manson was no longer visible.”

Watch the video of her being coached by husband James Whitehouse in reciting the 23rd Psalm. It’s creepy.

On August 8, 1969, actress Sharon Tate along with friends Voyteck Frykowski, Steve Parent, Jay Sebring, and coffee heiress Abigail Folger were brutally murdered at the house director Roman Polanski (Tate’s husband) had rented for his family. Tate was 8 months pregnant at the time of her death.

Two days later, Leno and Rosemary LaBianca were murdered in their Los Angeles home.

Charles “Tex” Watson, Susan Atkins, Patricia Krenwinkel and Linda Kasabian were convicted of these murders. They were part of “The Family”, a group of transient youth led by the charismatic Charles Manson.
