Petitioning CA Board of Parole Hearings

Keep Charles Manson Cult Murderer Leslie Van Houten from Being Released From Prison


My sister, Sharon Tate, was one of the victims of the Manson family in 1969. Sharon was just 26, and eight and a half months pregnant when she was brutally murdered.

On September 6, 2017, Charles Manson cult murderer Leslie Van Houten (CDC#W-13378) - who was convicted of the heinous murder of Rosemary LaBianca and sentenced to death, then life in prison - will again be coming up for parole consideration.  Please join me in asking the CA Parole Board to not release Leslie Van Houten.

Charles Manson's deranged "family," including Ms. Van Houten, broke into the home of Leno & Rosemary LaBianca on August 10, 1969.  Manson had gone into their home and tied the couple up.  Van Houten placed a pillowcase over Mrs. LaBianca's head, tied it with a lamp cord, and held Mrs. LaBianca down so Patricia Krenwinkel could stab the innocent woman to death.  

When the knife bent on Mrs. LaBianca's collar bone, Van Houten held Mrs. LaBianca down so Tex Watson could come in and stab her.  Then Van Houten stabbed Mrs. LaBianca in the lower back several times.  

Mrs. LaBianca was stabbed a total of 41 times.  Words were written in blood on two walls and a refrigerator door.  Van Houten then took a shower, stole one of LaBianca's dresses to wear and ate food from the refrigerator like it was her own home.

For years Van Houten showed no remorse at all.  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."

The CA Parole Board must know that society cannot trust someone who committed such a heinous murder without showing any remorse for years.

If you do not want this random murderer who was convicted by two separate juries of her peers to be released early into society, please sign this petition.

If you would like to also e-mail or write a letter to the board- please include her name, CDC# W-13378 & state why you feel she should stay in prison by contacting:
