This Day in History: Actress Sharon Tate Is Found Murdered .

August 9, 1969.

The 26-year-old expecting mother was murdered in an attack at her home in the Hollywood hills.

The wife of auteur director Roman Polanski, Tate and four others were the victims of members of the Charles Manson "Family" cult.

Polanski was out of the country at the time of the slayings.

Among the victims was coffee heiress Abigail Folger.

The slayings — in which the victims were both shot and stabbed — were gruesome, capturing the attention of the nation.

Manson had targeted the house because a producer who once lived there turned him down for a record deal.

Following a bizarre and highly sensationalized trial, Manson was sentenced to death.

Because California overturned the death penalty, he remains in prison.
