I hope I look that good at 60 with my hair pulled back and no makeup.

There's been a lot of mention on this site about wanting to hear from these folks before they pass on into eternity. Linda is one I'd like to hear from.

Jiri said...

Nice find, Liz. You never cease to amaze me!

hippiekiller said...

Ah she looks fine, whatever who cares. My thing is who's the brotard next to her?

Thats some beard!

She has aged better than certain other people have since August 1969. Atkins said she drove the car both nights. She is one of the few people remaining that was there and pretty much knows exactly what happened.

She had a valid drivers license? Considering what these people were going to do, someone was actually worried whether the driver had a valid license? I find that hard to believe.

Did she deliberately knock on the wrong door at Salidin Nader's apt. or did she just knock on the wrong door and later "claim" to have knocked on the wrong door after talking to lawyers?

Anyway, thanx for the picture and the upload.

The valid drivers license explanation is utter b.s. The core Family at this point were career criminals at this point. Even with a valid license they were still ridin' dirty with weapons and Tex and Sadie at least were spun out on whatever shitty speed bikers concocted back then. No, I think Linda was an accomplice becuase Charlie told her to go, plain and simple.

As for knocking on the wrong door the second night I dunno. If you watch any interviews with Linda you quickly get the sense that she's not all that bright. Maybe before all the drug abuse and in the prime of her youth she was a little more together but I'm not so sure.

God I don't know why she hasn't cashed in and wrote her book! With a decent ghost-writer it could easily be a best-seller and she could finally stop being broke white trash. Maybe someone still has something over her, hmmm?

Well, it was a capital murder trial. Her freedom completely hinged on her complete cooperation throughout all of the trials and beyond.

Since there is no statute of limitations on murder I wonder if she is still bound to stick to the story. A book in that case would violate the agreement that keeps her free?

Only Linda knows, and I suspect she will never tell.

Charlie Higgins said...

Would anyone know where and when the most recent pic of Ouish was taken ?

Panamint Patty said...

If we did Charlie, we would not say so.

beauders said...

maybe that's the son, she had with one of manson men.

Panamint Patty said...

Maybe Beauders, but even w/ the blur, dude looks too young for that: round, smooth baby face, plus the stylin' hipster beard.

PS Patty had never heard she had a son, only daughters. Thanks for that, UR always full of little gems of knowledge.

beauders said...

she had him while the trial was going on and she was incarcerated for her own protection--she named him angel.

Panamint Patty said...

Oh! Gotcha. Patty thought Angel was another girl like Tanya.

toocrowdedinthishouse said...

I also assumed Angel was a female child of Linda's. That biker dude might be a grandson, though.

leary7 said...

Funny, having grown up there myself, I will always think of Linda as a New Hampshire girl. And her appearance and dupliciousness is almost identical to N.H.'s most famous murderess, Pamela Smart. Kinda eerie really. Like Poe spooky.

maxfrost said...

This picture reminds me of reading that Brenda always took advantage of the jail house dentist when she was in the lockup an seeing the condition of Sandy's teeth as shown in a YouTube video made during her stay in New England. Obviously dental hygiene was no more a priority than any other personal hygiene during those days. Life with the wacky Manson family.

beauders said...

nope angel was most definately a boy, i think her only son. that man possibly being a grandson fits.

AustinAnn74 said...

I always thought that Linda could of at least TRIED to notify the authorities the night of the Tate murders, and told the police that the people had her daughter. I think she could of helped prevent the LaBianca's from being murdered. Why didn't she run away as fast as she could when they left her alone with the car? Or, better yet, why didn't she drive off at a high rate of speed, find a house, and make the people call the police. How could she have gone the second night?

Her grandson

Sue Golat said...

She did not help she did not drive away I have never understood!

Matt said...

Sue, we don't really understand either, so we keep blogging...
