On August 8, 1969, actress Sharon Tate along with friends Voyteck Frykowski, Steve Parent, Jay Sebring, and coffee heiress Abigail Folger were brutally murdered at the house director Roman Polanski (Tate’s husband) had rented for his family. Tate was 8 months pregnant at the time of her death.

Two days later, Leno and Rosemary LaBianca were murdered in their Los Angeles home.

Charles “Tex” Watson, Susan Atkins, Patricia Krenwinkel and Linda Kasabian were convicted of these murders. They were part of “The Family”, a group of transient youth led by the charismatic Charles Manson.
