In a statement, the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation said that Van Houten was “released to parole supervision” in the early morning hours and driven to transitional housing.

Van Houten, the youngest member of the cult, participated in two nights of mayhem and murder orchestrated by Manson in the summer of 1969 that saw seven people butchered across Los Angeles.

On August 9, 1969, Van Houten, then 19, Charles “Tex” Watson, Patricia Krenwinkel, Linda Kasabian, Susan Atkins, Clem Morgan, and Charles Manson massacred grocery store proprietor Leno LaBianca and his wife Rosemary inside their home in Los Angeles.

The night prior, Manson had also ordered the brutal killings of Sharon Tate, the 26-year-old pregnant wife of director Roman Polanski, and four others inside the couple’s Cielo Drive home in what would later become known as the “Helter Skelter” murders.

Ava Roosevelt, a friend of Sharon Tate’s who narrowly avoided becoming a victim of the Manson gang herself, told The U.S. Sun that she is furious and upset over the news of Van Houten’s release.

“It’s a sad day,” said a dejected Roosevelt, reacting minutes after the news of Van Houten’s release became public knowledge.

“I don’t believe a person that’s capable of committing such a heinous crime can ever be rehabilitated, that kind of thing is ingrained in your DNA.
