THE granddaughter of “Manson family” victim Rosemary LaBianca was horrifically stabbed and left dead “in a pool of blood.”
Ariana Wolk, 40, was found murdered in a Denver, Colorado, apartment on July 3.
She was found “in a pool of blood in her bed” after being stabbed multiple times in the neck, according to the Denver District Attorney’s office.
A post-mortem also found Wolk with “several stab wounds to her neck and apparent defensive stab wounds to her arms and hands.”
Jose Sandoval-Romero, 24, has been charged with her murder.
The DA’s office said that the suspect confessed to cops when he was arrested four days later.
“During his interview with law enforcement, Sandoval-Romero admitted that he had stabbed Ms. Wolk, fled the scene, and discarded his bloody clothes before fleeing to Colorado Springs,” the office said.
According to a GoFundMe page, Wolk was a single mom “with one son who was the joy of her life.”
Her sister, Rommi Wolk, described her as “a very happy, sweet, kind loving child and gifted her family with many fond memories.”
Friends and family were fundraising to transport her body back to her native California.
Ariana’s mother, Suzan LaBerge, was just 21 when her mom and stepfather were killed.
Members of the Manson “family” arrived at the Hollywood Hills home of Sharon Tate on August 8, 1969, where they stabbed, beat, and shot to death the young actress and her friends – celebrity hairstylist Jay Sebring, coffee heiress Abigail Folger, and aspiring screenwriter Wojciech Frykowski.
As they made their way to the house, they encountered a teenager, Steven Parent, who had been visiting an acquaintance at the estate’s guesthouse, and shot him to death.
The next night, Manson led a handful of followers to the home of wealthy grocer Leno LaBianca and his wife, Rosemary. Manson tied up the couple and left the others to kill them.
Manson and his followers also killed two others – musician Gary Hinman and Hollywood stuntman Donald “Shorty” Shea – in separate, unrelated attacks.
Leno and Rosemary LaBianca, who owned a chain of Los Angeles grocery stores, were stabbed dozens of times.
Their home was chosen at random by Manson, who tied them up and then, before leaving, ordered his followers to kill them. Among the weapons used was a chrome-plated bayonet.
Leno was left with a carving fork protruding from his stomach, with the word “war” cut into his skin.
“Rise” and “Death to pigs” was scrawled in blood on the wall, with misspelled “Healter Skelter” on the fridge door.
