As reported here yesterday by Christine Pelisek, Charles Manson disciple Susan Atkins has been sent to a prison hospice to die from incurable brain cancer. Atkins was convicted in 1971 of murder for participating in an eight-death homicide spree carried out by the Manson Family in 1969. That summer of carnage included the murder of pregnant actress Sharon Tate. Atkins was denied a “compassionate release” from a state parole board last July, ensuring that she will die behind bars. It is 39 years to the month that Atkins provided grand jury testimony that led to the trial of amateur singer Manson and his followers. And so, perhaps, it's fitting to play one of Manson's recorded songs, “Look at Your Game Girl.” This YouTube montage includes Family photos and film footage, along with Manson art work.
