August 9, 1969: the Manson family entered the Tate house, beginning their two-day murder spree.
Above: The page in my book where I mention “Helter Skelter.”
I became intrigued by this story when I first read “Helter Skelter” when I was 11. I think there were ties between my dad’s job as a gravedigger and my fascination with gruesome, true crime stories.
Do you remember the Manson murders? Or if you weren’t alive then, did they enter your consciousness as they did me?
