Why this petition matters

Started by Debra Tate

On May 30, 2023 an appellate court unfortunately ruled to reverse Governor Gavin Newsom's decision to block Leslie Van Houten (CDC#W-13378) from being paroled! However, Governor Newsom could request that California Attorney General Rob Bonta petition the California Supreme Court to stop her release! Signatures & comments are being collected here to let both Governor Newsom & Attorney General Rob Bonta know you do not want her to be paroled. Please sign, comment, & SHARE this petition to let your voice be heard - we do NOT want this murderer who was convicted by two separate juries of her peers to be released into society!

Ms. Van Houten broke into the home of Leno & Rosemary LaBianca on August 10, 1969- after Charles Manson had gone into their home & tied the couple up. She placed a pillowcase over Mrs. LaBianca's head & tied it with a lamp chord. She held Mrs. LaBianca down so Patricia Krenwinkel could stab her. When the knife bent stabbing Mrs. LaBianca in the collar bone, Ms. Van Houten got Tex Watson to come help stab her.  Ms. Van Houten then stabbed Mrs. LaBianca in the lower back several times. Rosemary LaBianca was stabbed a total of 41 times. Words were then written in blood on two walls & a refrigerator door. Ms. Van Houten then took a shower, stole one of Rosemary LaBianca's dresses to wear, a leather purse, wiped the house of fingerprints, and ate cheese and chocolate milk from the victims' refrigerator.  Before leaving, she patted their dogs on the head and left their bodies to be discovered the following evening by Rosemary's son and daughter.

She claims to this day that she did this because she believed she was going to live in a hole in the middle of the earth with the Manson cult. For years she showed no remorse at all for her actions. When asked during her trial if she ever cried about the murder of Rosemary LaBianca she replied: "Cry for her death? Why? ......She's not the only person who has died."
