Updated video with Patrica Krenwinkle showing her much more aged
than the above photo.

Manson follower, convicted of her role in the murders of Sharon Tate
and her unborn child Paul Richard, Jay Sebring, Wojciech Frykowski,
Abigail Folger, Steven Parent, Rosemary and Leno LaBianca.

Krenwinkle is incarcerated at Frontera, California in the California
Institute for Women. Patricia Krenwinkel was found guilty of seven counts
of first degree murder and one count of conspiracy to commit murder for her
role in the murders at the Tate-Labianca homes.

Krenwinkle dragged Abigail Folger from her bedroom into the living room.
As Folger fought for her life, Krenwinkle chased her out onto the lawn and
repeatedly stabbed her 28 times. Folger's white nightgown was thought to
be red there was so much blood on it. Krenwinkle bragged that Abigail
Folger pled with her to stop stabbing her, saying "I'm already dead."


Krenwinkle: "I stabbed her and I kept stabbing her."
"How did it feel?"
Krenwinkle: "Nothing--I mean, what is there to describe?
It was just there, and it was right."

After the murders Krenwinkle and fellow murderer Susan Atkins
complained "their hands hurt from using the knives on their victims
so many times.
Manson asked "Do you feel any remorse?"
Krenwinkle: "No."

Krenwinkle was present at the scene when Watson shot Steven Parent.
Krenwinkel assisted Atkins in tying up Wojciech Frykowski, Jay Sebring,
Abigail Folger and Sharon Tate. They shot, hung, stabbed and
bludgeoned to death Sebring, Folger and Frykowski. Sharon Tate
Polanski and her unborn 8 1/2 month child Paul Richard were the last
to be murdered.

The next night, Krenwinkel, "Tex" Watson and Leslie Van Houten
entered the LaBianca home. Krenwinkle stabbed Rosemary
LaBianca with such force that her knife bent when it hit Mrs.
LaBianca's collarbone. Krenwinkle carved the word "War" on
the murdered Leno LaBianca's stomach and then rammed
a carving fork into him. She flicked it and made it wobble.
A pillowcase over his head hid the fact that a knife was lodged in his
throat. Krenwinkel dipped her finger in Mr. LaBianca's blood
and wrote on the wall and on the refrigerator "Death to Pigs,
Rise, and Healter Skelter.

Krenwinkel: "I wake up every day and know that I'm a destroyer of life,
and living with that is the most difficult thing of all. That's what I deserve-
to wake up every morning and know that."

Although Krenwinkle claims remorse it has not stopped her from applying
for parole. Krenwinkle was eligible for parole in January of 2008 and she
was denied.

Krenwinkle's next parole date is January of 2009.
