Patricia Dianne Krenwinkel was born in CA on December 3, 1947.
She was over weight as a child and introduced herself to amphetamines for weight loss, beginning her drug habits. Her parents divorced when she was a teen. Her father stayed in CA while her mother went to live in Alabama. Pat bounced back and forth from her mother's home to her father's home and eventually took off to roam around CA when she was 15 years old. At age 20 she met Charlie and the girls. She grooved quickly in with the Family and her job with them was Nanny. But she quickly moved on to murderer. After the Spahn Ranch raid in October of 1969, her father bailed her out and she returned to Alabama to live with her mother and aunt Garnet Reeves. Interestingly enough Katie used as one of her aliases the last name Reeves. Why did all the Family members do that? Use their mother's maiden names and or some type of family related name for their aliases? She is currently incaarcerated at the California Institute for Women.
