Patricia Columbo "I received credit for becoming a mentor and a voice for younger inmates.
That voice says there's young women who made some terrible choices in their life."
ABOUT THE MURDER
Patricia Columbo "We didn't plan to kill my parents and brother on the night
it happened. I take responsibility ... I can't give you details ..
I think it's probably because of the atrocity of what did
I CAN'T REMEMBER
Patricia Columbo "One of the things that people are asking for is the one
thing that I honestly and I truthfully can't give them... I can't give you details.
I can't give you details because they aren't there. And I think it's probably
because of the atrocity of what did take place. Just because I don't
remember doesn't mean it didn't happen that way."
Columbo now claims the reason she did the crime was because of "sexual
abuse" she suffered at the age of 6 by her godfather." She said "it set a pattern."
At the time of the murders she made no such claim. (The godfather was
reportedly deceased by the time she began making these claims.)
ABOUT HER FAMILY
Columbo called her parents "good" but "naive" people."
"I never, ever, ever, ever hated them. I don't care what people believe ...
I was so ashamed of the life I was leading."
Patricia Columbo "He (Michael) was my baby brother and he didn't deserve this.
He should have had a chance to live a full life."
Columbo says this now because it sounds good... for parole purposes.
Patricia Columbo "Any chance of leaving prison is "between God and the parole board."
