On August 9, 1969, the headlines across the country mourned the loss of 26-year-old and 8 ½ months pregnant actress Sharon Tate and four others at her estate at 10050 Cielo drive in Beverly Hills – Jay Sebring, Wojciech Frykowski, Abigail Folger, and Steven Parent. Dominick Dunne recalls that “The shock waves that went through the town were beyond anything I had ever seen before. People were convinced that the rich and famous of the community were in peril. Children were sent out of town. Guards were hired.”
This was only a tiny piece of the Helter Skelter plan that Charles Manson had formed based on the race war he believed was coming.
Chillers, today we bring you the heinous helter skelter case.
