The first series of mass murders, called the "Tate" homicides, occurred at the home of Sharon (Tate) Polanski on 1969-AUG-9. Three victims were shot and/or stabbed multiple times on the grounds of the estate. These were Abigail Folger, Steven Parent and Voiytek Frykowski. Sharon Polanski and Jay Sebring were murdered inside the house. Sharon, 8 months pregnant at the time, died from numerous stab wounds, five of which were by themselves fatal; Jay died of blood loss. Both had their necks loosely attached by a single rope over a rafter. Charles Manson A Leader of Many "Mr. and Mrs. America--you are wrong. I am not the King of the Jews nor am I a hippie cult leader. I am what you have made me and the mad dog devil killer fiend leper is a reflection of your society. . .Whatever the outcome of this madness that you call a fair trial or Christian justice, you can know this: In my mind's eye my thoughts light fires in your cities."
--Charles Manson's statement after his conviction
for the Tate-LaBianca murders. Charles Manson is a convicted serial killer who has become an icon of evil. Kathleen had run away from home at the age of 15 and spent the next few decades drinking too much, with periods of time spent in jail.
His mother couldn't take care of him so Charles spent his youth at the homes of various relatives and often at special reform schools and boys homes. In 1954 Charles Manson was 19 and married a waitress named Rosalie Willis after getting out of prison because of an unusual bout of good behavior. They birthed a son in 1956 named Charles Manson Jr. Shortly after that Manson went back to prison for, again, stealing cars. After Manson was in prison for a year, his wife found a new man and divorced Charles for him in June of 1957.
