Sharon Tate

tateSharon Tate was killed in 1969 in a particularly shocking manner while her husband Roman Polanski was in England preparing a film.

She was in her villa in the Hollywood Hills entertaining three guests: the producer Voytek Freykowsky, his girlfriend Abigail Folger and Jay Sebring, the hair stylist.

When police arrived at the house on the morning of 9 August they found four mutilated bodies, one of them Sharon Tate, who had been stabbed 15 times and whose breasts had been severed.

On the front door, the word “PIGS” had been scrawled in blood.
