Abigail Folger's last words to Patricia Krenwinkel. I was watching all the Manson programs on Biography last evening and at one point Krenwinkel was talking about Abigail Folger's alleged last words, "I'm already dead." Me being the stubborn one who struggles with Bugliosi's tale of Helter Skelter, I sat and thought about this some more. What did Folger mean? She knew she wasn't dead, so why did she say she was? Did she honestly feel the savage butchering her was going to stop, if she admitted her own death? "OK, I'm dead now, so will you please quit stabbing me?" Or was her statement a figure of speech? As soon as my family finds out I've been using their money to support a drug dealer, I might as well be dead. As soon as our connections discover you've taken their money, I might as well be dead. As soon as our connections discover you've taken their drugs, I will be as good as dead. When Roman Polanski discovers what we were doing here in his home, I am as good as dead. Yes, I might be reading too much into such a simple statement, but it certainly was a curious thing for her to have said. What are your thoughts?
