American homicide perpetrator. A hippie dropout product of the drug culture, she met and loved Charles Manson, joining his camp on the old Spahn ranch in Death Valley. She had a child, Zee Zo Zeze Zedfrack, father unknown, in 1968. On 8/09/1969, she joined in the ritualistic killing of five people, holding eight-month pregnant Sharon Tate while Tex Watson stabbed her to death. While in prison, she later had a "religious conversion" (1974), which she described in her 1977 memoir. She later began a prison ministry. In 1981 she was married for a few months to a Texan named Donald Lee Laisure who claimed he was a millionaire. He also claimed that she was his 29th wife, later saying that she was his 36th. She married again in 1987, this time to James Whitehouse, who subsequently became a lawyer.

While in prison her health deteriorated. In 2008 she was diagnosed with brain cancer and underwent a leg amputation as well. Atkins died at age 61 on September 24, 2009 at a women's prison in Chowchilla, CA.
