The 5 Most Shocking Celebrity Murders.
Charles Manson and his path of violence found their way to the unassuming doorsteps of actress Sharon Tate, the wife of Roman Polanski who was 26-years-old at the time she was brutally murdered.
At the time of Tate’s murder, she was a rising star in Hollywood and becoming one of it’s most noted sex symbols. At eight and a half months pregnant and married to one of the top directors in show business (Roman Polanski), her family life was looking as promising as her budding film career for the young starlet.
On the morning of August 9th, 1969 Tate’s body along with several other slain friends and colleagues were found brutally murdered on Tate’s estate. The crimes were eventually linked to the Manson family, after one of the murderers confessed while being held for car theft in November of that same year.
