The ‘Manson Family’ murders

In 1969, pregnant actress Sharon Tate was found horrifically murdered along with four other people at her home in Los Angeles. Charles Manson and his followers were found guilty of the brutal crime that shook the nation. Look back at the shocking murder and what ensued.



1) On Jan. 2, 2017, Charles Manson, notorious convicted serial killer, was reportedly taken to the hospital from his prison cell. It’s not known why Manson, 82, was transported to a hospital in Bakersfield. Here, Manson is pictured in his most recent mugshot in 2014


2) In this handout photo from the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation, Charles Manson, 74, poses for a photo on March 18, 2009 at Corcoran State Prison, California. Manson is serving a life sentence for conspiring to murder seven people during the “Manson family” killings in 1969.
3) In the early morning of August 9, 1969, blossoming actress Sharon Tate was brutally murdered, along with four others, in a horrific crime orchestrated by Charles Manson and executed by his followers. The 26-year-old actress was pregnant at the time of her murder and only two weeks away from giving birth.
4) Infamous convicted serial killer Charles Manson ironically never killed anyone himself. The icon of evil was a leader of a cult group called the “Manson Family,” who he manipulated into carrying out horrific crimes. In this photo, he is being escorted to his arraignment on conspiracy-murder charges in connection with the Sharon Tate murder case.
5) Sharon Tate married film director Roman Polanski in 1968. At the time of her murder, Polanski was away in London. During the afternoon before her death, Tate had two friends over for lunch and confided in them how she was disappointed in her husband’s delayed return since she was so close to giving birth.
6) The scene of the murder: Sharon Tate and Roman Polanski’s home, Benedict Canyon estate, was tucked away in the canyons of Beverly Hills in a very quiet and secluded area, making it the perfect target for the Manson Family’s brutal murder plot.
