Over the years, Kasabian has avoided and refused most news media attention. She appeared only once between 1969 and 2008, for an interview with the syndicated American television program A Current Affair in 1988.Later, Cineflix, a production company in the United Kingdom and Canada, produced a docu-drama called Manson, in which Kasabian appears, telling her story in complete detail for the first time
He will be eligible to have another parole hearing in 2019.
Leslie Van Houten, one of the youngest of the family, didn't meet Charles Manson until September 1968, less than a year before the murders took place. The two-time homecoming queen soon became one of his most devoted followers, and while she wasn't there for the Tate massacre, she participated the following night, stabbing Rosemary LaBianca in the back 14 times. Van Houten, 66, was up for parole this year, and asked to be freed, claiming that she had been emotionally troubled and under the influence of LSD at the time of the murders.
Though she lost any real chance at public support when she giggled during her trial testimony in 1970, Van Houten has long been thought to have a good shot at getting out – attracting support from celebrities like filmmaker John Waters, who wrote a five-part plea for her release in 2011. Then, after her 21st parole hearing last spring, a California parole board recommended her release based on her model behavior over the course of her almost 50-year incarceration. Van Houten was again recommended for parole at her 21st parole hearing on September 6, 2017. The two-member panel found that Van Houten had radically changed her life in the more than 40 years she has been incarcerated. However, the panel's decision must still be approved by the state parole board and Governor Jerry Brown, who reversed the panel's decision in 2016.[
