Occupation: "Actress" according to the informant Lisa Statman. Place of Birth: Washington State Education: High School Informant to authorities and person with Patti Tate as she passed away: Alisa R. Statman, residing in Palos Verdes, CA. This is the house that Sharon had stayed in, purchased by Paul and Doris Tate in 1965, as Doris told me. Alisa Statman was the live-incompanion of Patti Tate. From the guest house at the Tate murder property, to the house of the Tate family was the moving of Alisa Statman during the last several years in the life of Patti Tate. Cremated: June 7, 2000 No medical examination by autopsy was done. The deceased was not embalmed. Place of internment: Same location and site of Sharon Marie Tate Polanski, unborn Paul, Doris G. Tate, and now Patti Tate. Holy Cross Cemetery. Death Certificate "Cleared" Indicating no foul play as cause of death. Cause of death: Breast Cancer Patti Tate was divorced from her husband, the former Los Angeles basketball player, and star athlete from Santa Barbara, California. Don Ford played his last year for the Lakers when Magic Johnson played his first year for the team. Patti Tate raised her children, whom I had met on several occasions when Doris was alive, with Alisa Statman over the past several years. Head Deputy District Attorney Stephen Kay told me that he attended a private funeral for Patti Tate. Alisa Statman was there. No press releases were ever given, no public notices that I know of and Mr. Kay told me that was at the explicit direction of Alisa Statman. Alisa Statman, as I understand it, is caring for the children and neither Col. Paul Tate nor Debbie Tate are involved.

325,000 letters from around the world from supporters of her work to keep them all in prison. Letters were received at a post office box, but thousands of the letters were also received at the residence address of Doris Tate. She presented them to Charles Denton Tex Watson at his parole hearing at San Luis Obispo Men's Colony where he was imprisoned for the brutal murders. Patti Tate leaves behind three children, two daughters and the youngest child is a boy. Patti Tate: Passed away and died much too young at the age of 42. May she finally rest in peace. A private funeral was conducted for Patti Tate. There were some 200 people invited, and the word went out about the funeral by telephone invitation. Col. Paul Tate, her father and Debbie Tate the lone remaining sister of Sharon Tate attended. Classmates of the children also attended. It was a dignified funeral in the words of my source who attended. No press were invited or there. It was very private, orchestrated by Ms. Statman.
