Linda Kasabian Cause Of Death
Linda Kasabian, a murderous “Family” member of Charles Manson’s who later testified against her fellow cult members, has died. Kasabian died on January 21 at a hospital in Tacoma, Washington, and her body was cremated, according to TMZ. Her cause of death was not disclosed. She was 73 years old.
According to a death certificate obtained by the gossip site, Kasabian changed her last name to “Chiochios” in order to conceal her former affiliation with the notorious cult.
Who was Linda Kasabian?
Despite her ties to the murderous Manson family, she did not directly harm any of the victims during her tirade. She was 20 years old at the time and admits she fell victim to Charles Mason’s “spell” and wanted to do whatever he demanded of her. The gang murdered seven people over two nights of mayhem in 1969. They were convicted of two additional murders that occurred later.
During the Manson trial in 1970 and 1971, Kasabian was granted immunity in exchange for testifying as a key witness in Manson’s prosecution. She testified at the trial about how the massacres were carried out under his command. She admitted to being the driver on the second night when Leno and Rosemary LaBianca were murdered outside their homes. Because of her testimony, Manson and those directly involved in the murders were sentenced to life in prison.
She was the only surviving member of the murderous gang. She then vanished, changing her name and moving from state to state with her four children to avoid detection. Kasabian was a grandmother at least twice over, and she lived in a rundown part of Tacoma, an urban port city of about 200,000 people about 35 miles south of Seattle.
It’s unclear where she lived when she died in January.
How Did Linda Kasabian Die?
Kasabian died on January 21, according to a death certificate obtained by TMZ. Her death was not given a cause.
According to Linda Kasabian, Manson did NOT tell the women to murder that first night. They went out w/ TEX Watson for home-invasion/stealing. TEX told them to KILL. Were they psychopathic killers, victims of MKUltra, or under the thumb of a “cult leader?” pic.twitter.com/4FBpr6pS0Z
