Patricia Krenwinkel (aka- Katie) had a big part in the "Tate- LaBianca" murders. Besides Tex Watson, she was the only one that was present at both residence's during the time of the murders. Patricia admitted that while at the Tate residence, she chased Abigail Folger outside of the house with an "up raised" knife and stabbed her numerous times. She said that she remembered Abigail saying, "I'm already dead". At the LaBianca's, Patricia wrote in blood through out the house- the words, "Death to Pigs", "Helter Skelter" and "Rise".
She was convicted of seven counts of first degree murder and one count conspiracy to commit murder.
Like the others, when her mind cleared up from all the distortion of drugs and mind control, she turned her life around as well. Patricia is also clearly rehabilitated and very remorseful. She is very active in many of the programs the prison offers, has helped other women, and keeps a discipline-free record. She too is also a model prisoner.
