The murder of actress Sharon Tate and several others orchestrated by iconic crazy guy Charles Manson occurred thirty-seven years ago today. The pregnant Tate was brutally stabbed to death along with Abigail Folger, Voytek Frykowski, and Jay Sebring. Steve Parent, another friend, was shot to death. Manson continues to serve a life sentence. He avoided the death penalty when a statute in California state law was struck down in 1972.
