Sharon Tate and her unborn child and three guests at the house-hair stylist Jay Sebring, Abigail Folger heiress to the Folger coffee fortune and her boyfriend Wojciech Frykowski were all murdered along with an 18 year old Stephen Parent who had been visiting the property’s caretaker. The killers-Charles “Tex” Watson, Susan Atkins, and Patricia Krenwinkel were carrying out the orders of Charles Manson.
