The Ballad of Little Patty, Conclusion
In parts One and Two of this series, I documented how I learned that ‘Madeline Joan Cottage’ of the Manson Family aka Little Patty had been known for 50+ years to law enforcement and the public by a false name.
Her true name is Patricia Joan Baldwin. Madeline was one of several aliases that she used in 1969. Aliases were nom de guerre for the Family, allowing them to both adopt alternate personas at whim and elude the police.
Patricia Joan Baldwin may have had good reason to evade the law.
