Lynette Alice “Squeaky” Fromme is an American would-be assassin best known for attempting to assassinate U.S. President Gerald Ford in 1975. A member of the infamous Manson family, she was sentenced to life imprisonment for the assassination attempt and released on parole on August 14, 2009, after serving 34 years.

Fromme was born Lynette Alice Fromme in Santa Monica, California on October 22, 1948. Fromme was a child performer, touring with a song and dance troop called the Westchester Lariats. After high school, Fromme moved to Venice Beach, where she met Charles Manson.

Fromme wasn’t involved in the Tate/LaBianca murders that landed Manson in prison, but she was handed a life sentence after pointing a gun at former President Gerald Ford in 1975. Throughout her years in prison, Fromme corresponded with Manson, and she was one of the followers who didn’t denounce Manson.

In highschool Fromme befriended Phil Hartman, who later gained fame on shows like Saturday Night Live and the The Simpsons. Later on Fromme briefly dated Bill Siddons, who went on to be the road manager of The Doors.

Fromme had a special place in the family, according to Paul Watkins, no one but Manson was allowed to sleep with Fromme.

Fromme escaped from jail in 1987 but was found wandering the countryside just a few miles away. Officials at the time investigated whether Fromme had escaped jail after hearing that Manson had become ill.

James and Lauren Willett were associates of the Manson family.

After the Tate/LaBianca murder trial Nancy Pitman and Priscilla Cooper, and a pair of ex-convicts named Michael Monfort and James Craig (Aryan Brotherhood) and James and Lauren Willett and their infant daughter Heidi (#1 | #2) moved into a cabin in Guerneville.

In 1972, the decapitated body of James Willett was found in a shallow grave with his hand sticking out of the ground. later the body of his wife, Lauren was discovered buried in the crawl space of a house in Stockton.

Michael Monfort, James Craig, Priscilla Cooper, Nancy Pitman and Lynnette Fromme were arrested for the murder of James and Lauren Willett.

Michael Monfort pled guilty to both murders. Nancy Pitman pleaded guilty to being an accessory after the fact in the murder of Lauren Willett. Lynette Fromme was released for lack of evidence.

Baby Heidi was not harmed and ended up with her grandmother.

After leaving Stockton, Fromme moved into a Sacramento apartment with fellow Manson family member Sandra Good.

Today Fromme lives in New York State with her ex-con boyfriend.

  1. You can leave a message in the comments section at the page of the person you want to contact. Some of the former family members actually visit this site so there’s a chance they will read it.

  2. Not sure how it would be possible but if someone knows of a way that I could get a CD to Ms. Fromme without disturbing her privacy, please let me know.

    Much Love.

    Is what he said⚘💕🕯

  4. It really was hot with a spreading sunny yellow bright on the funny streets of L.A. and a fellow at the gas station said, :yeah, I lived in Cheats-worth in ’69 ( his word for Chatsworth and humor).
    I laughed.
    Then the rather scrawny guy said, I didn’t know about stuff goin’ on at that Spahn place, ‘cept for they had an old ranch with horse rides.
    Then he said, then when I heard what happened with them killings and that trial, well man that’s crazy, those kids there at that ranch were a buncha killers.
    I said, to that, no man, most of them were not, no.
    He then gave me a narrowed eye, “hey man, something you know, what’ up?”
    I paid for the gas, the coke and the twin cupcake pack-Hostess.

    As we wait for answers and hopefully freedom for nice face and name Leslie Van Houten, from the court, as to why the Governors office blocked her parole boards approved release, we can see the continuing unfairness of the law and judicial application of such matters in nutty California.

    In 1976 Sandra Good was sentenced to 15 years in prison.
    Perpetually cute Sandy was released after 10 years, at the end of ’85.
    She was convicted of sending threatening letters to the big shots at corporations.
    Heck, the big corporations threaten us every day with unsafe food, products, pollution and with their lackeys, the politicians, and the slippery, bribery lobbies.
    One of the conditions of Sandy’s parole was that she couldn’t move to California until the parole ended, which it did after several years.
    Her sentence and that condition are weird, and they are draconian measures.
    What is this a dictatorship?

    Pretty and shapely Lynnette Fromme was sentenced to life in prison and was released in 2009 after serving more than 35 years.
    35 years! And, there was no violence involved! What the hey!
    In 1975, in silly Sacramento, Lynnette had held a gun, a Colt (no not the Colt 45 beer, ha) at a park near the Capital and was arrested. They said that she was gonna shoot Ford- the President, not the car. Yeah, I know, Chevy fans, ha ha.
    Lynnette had purposely left the chamber of the gun empty. That was proven when she said and they did find that to be true-she had dropped that bullet back at her home on the floor.
    Still, what she did was very dangerous and wrong and whatever.
    But over 35 years?

    Lynnette and Sandy served a lot longer than criminals that raped and murdered 1 and 2 humans.
    Lynnette is not crazy and Sandy is not crazy. At least they stuck with what they said.
    And, I am not excusing illegality. But, why:
    are there thousand of ‘lifers’ that have been released, especially since 2008, that, as stated above committed terrible crimes of assault and murders and then freed from anywhere from 5 to 20 years?
    Susan Atkins was denied freedom even as she lay on a hospital gurney, during the parole hearing, in that room. She lay there with an amputated leg, brain cancer and the good doctors said she has maybe… a couple of months to live.
    The parole board, with pressure from outside hate sources denied her to be with her brothers family during her last months. The reason the board gave:
    An illegal one, according to that 2008 Calif. Supreme Court ruling, and of course so dishonest-and immoral.
    the reason they gave …yeah, that “she poses an unreasonable risk to society.” What!
    Then people ask people like yours truly here, “well would you let Susan or Leslie live in your house?” C’mon… yet I’ll answer, sure, I would, but you know that’s not gonna be as there are rules to parole i.e.location, family, maybe halfway house, etc.
    But I’d give her some money and say, here buy you some things.
    Besides, I’m one of these guys looking for a wife, these days.
    Really, Leslie shoulda been freed in the 80’s. Again, compare sentences.
    Thanks now and dig the now Summer weather.
