Manson Family Murderer Released from California Prison

Leslie Van Houten was freed from a California prison after 53 years following her conviction in two murders.

Van Houten is now under parole supervision after her successful request for freedom from her life sentence.

"This development follows Governor Gavin Newsom’s recent decision not to challenge a state appeals court ruling that granted Van Houten parole. Now in her 70s, she had been serving a life sentence for her role in the 1969 killings of Leno LaBianca, a grocer from Los Angeles, and his wife, Rosemary," Breaking 911 reported.

"Van Houten was released from prison during the early hours of the morning and was transported to transitional housing," it added.

The LaBianca family expressed disappointment in the impending release.

“My family and I are heartbroken because we’re once again reminded of all the years that we have not had my father and my stepmother with us,” LaBianca’s daughter, Cory LaBianca, told the Associated Press Friday.

“My children and my grandchildren never got an opportunity to get to know either of them, which has been a huge void for my family,” the 75-year-old relative said.

Charles Manson died in 2017 at the age of 83 while serving a life sentence for convictions in multiple murders.

Many believe Van Houten should have experienced the same ending. Her parole came after five attempts in recent years to gain her release after five decades behind bars.

The controversial release brings back bad memories for many of the Manson murders but is most offensive to the loved ones of those killed under the convicted individual's involvement.
