SUSAN ATKINS - b05-07-48, Susan Denise Atkins
aka "Sadie Mae Glutz",
formerly part of "The Witches of Mendocino" (notoriety), formerly independent

"Atkins came into contact with LaVey in San Francisco after being released from the hoosegow, and danced in a show he organized called the Witches' Sabbath as a blood-swilling vampire. It was a precursor of things to come for the rootless girl. ...

"Atkins and some other clan members lived in the idyllic artists community of Mendocino in northern California fo a while, but they were busted after distributing LSD to local kid. The Manson-affiliated group was dubbed 'The Witches of Mendocino'" when they went on trial. ...

"Atkins, Watson and Krenwinkle ...entered the Polanski-Tate home and committed one of the most cold-blooded murders to disgrace the annals of crime, calling into effect the very nature of the human soul. What boggles the mind is the sheer evil of the event, the intensity of the killers as they lay waste to an innocent, heavily pregnant young woman and her three friends. When it was over, the word "Pig" was written in Tate's blood on the front door of the house. ..."

"Atkins claimed that it was she who stabbed eight-months pregnant Sharon Tate to death, a particularly brutal act even within the context of the Cielo Drive massacre in that the group of murderers had kept Tate, who pleaded for the life of her unborn baby, alive to the last. Restraining Tate while her friends were brutally butchered before her eyes, Atkins said that she had coldly told the terrified actress that she would be murdered: "Look, bitch, I don't care a thing about you. You're going to die and there's nothing you can do about it.

"She further testified that she stabbed Tate repeatedly as the dying actress cried out in anguish for her own mother before perishing. She then tasted the blood of Sharon Tate that was on her hand, figuratively sucking the life out of her. It was one of the most appalling stories of its kind, shocking people who had lived through more than half-a-century of mass-murder since the First World War. ..."

"In March 1971, after the longest and most expensive trial in Los Angeles history in which Bugliosi insisted that Manson was a charismatic cult leader who believed he received secret messages from The Beatles' "White Album" -- a veritable demon who threatened the very basis of Western civilization itself -- all four were found guilty of first-degree murder."

"...convicted for her participation in eight of these killings, including the most notorious, the "Sharon Tate/LaBianca" murders. She was sentenced to death, which was subsequently commuted to life in prison. Atkins has been incarcerated in California since October 1, 1969, having been denied parole seventeen times. ..."

"During her time as a dancer, Atkins met Church of Satan founder Anton Szandor LaVey when she was hired for a stage production which featured her as a vampire."
