August 9th, 2019: 50th Anniversary of the Manson Family Murder of Sharon Tate


Today marks the 50th anniversary of the Manson Family Murders, perhaps the most infamous and shocking true crime event of modern times. In the early morning hours of August 9th, 1969, three intruders broke into 10050 Cielo Drive, the Los Angeles home of Roman Polanski and his pregnant wife, actress Sharon Tate. Polanski was out of the country working on a film, but the five people who were there that night--Jay Sebring, Voytek Frykowski, Abigail Folger, Steve Parent, and Sharon Tate--were brutally slaughtered in a mass murder filled with violence so shocking and over the top that it still horrifies us today. The following day, two more victims, Leno and Rosemary LaBianca, were killed in a similar fashion miles away.

By the time the sun came up on August 10th, Hollywood was in a panic. It wouldn't be much longer until the entire world new the name of Charles Manson and what he had done, as the Manson Family Murders became a part of our collective nightmares.
