Manson Family Kills Actress Sharon Tate, Aug. 9, 1969

NewspaperArchive

The brutal murders of 26-year-old actress Sharon Tate and four houseguests on Aug. 9, 1969, shocked Hollywood and the country. Tate, who starred in The Valley of the Dolls and was married to movie director Roman Polanski, was eight months pregnant at the time of the killings. Three months would pass before the murders were linked to cult leader Charles Manson and his “family” of followers.

    An Aug. 10, 1969, Associated Press article in The Salina Journal provides some details about the crime scene and the victims.

    “A Hollywood actress, an internationally known male hairdresser and an heiress to a coffee fortune were found slain along with 2 other men Saturday in what one policeman described as a ‘ritualistic killing.’

    “The scene was a $200,000 tomato-red home in fashionable Bel Air, rented by the actress’ husband, a Polish producer of suspenseful and macabre films.”
