Patricia Krenwinkel belonged to the “Manson Family” and was involved in seven murders. She has been in prison for over 50 years. A parole board had recommended her release – but nothing will come of it.

Los Angeles – Patricia Krenwinkel, a former supporter of cult leader Charles Manson, remains convicted of murder after more than 50 years in prison. California Gov. Gavin Newsom refused to release the 74-year-old, according to prison officials. Krenwinkel continues to pose an “unreasonable danger” to society, the Los Angeles Times quoted on Friday (local time) from the democratic politician’s justification.

A parole board in California first recommended Krenwinkel’s release last May. Krenwinkel, in prison since 1969, had asked for clemency for the 15th time. The governor must review such requests and may block a release.

In 1969, members of the “Manson Family” murdered a total of seven people on behalf of cult leader Charles Manson. The most spectacular act was the killing of the heavily pregnant actress and wife of director Roman Polanski, Sharon Tate.

In addition to Krenwinkel, former Manson supporter Leslie Van Houten (73) is also in prison. The parole board last recommended her release in November 2021, but Governor Newsom blocked the move. Accomplice Susan Atkins died of cancer in September 2009 after 38 years behind bars. Charles Manson died in prison in November 2017 at the age of 83. dpa
