We’ve all heard the name Charles Manson and the horrifying information that it comes with. He was the leader of a cult and the so-called Helter Skelter orchestrated the murders of innocent people along with his cult’s members. He did not participate in all of the murders, but he was the one that always gave the orders. Now that he is dead, people find a new opportunity to open the discussion about him once again and dig deeper into the life and action of this evil man. There are also many people who are mourning the death of this ‘great leader’ based on their sayings. We will never know some of the most gruesome details of the Manso family’s crimes or their inner thoughts about them, but we will never stop speculating and guessing about them.
Roman Polanski, who was married to Sharon Tate at the moment of her murdering, was away on business and if he was at home he would probably have been one of the victims.
When the Manson family was arrested, they were not instantly charged with the murders of the Tate residence, but for theft auto.
It was Susan Atkins who revealed that the family did the murders to a fellow inmate, stating that ”we wanted to do a crime that would shock the world”.
All members of the family were given the death penalty and drew an ‘X’ mark on their forehead, which meant that they were crossed out of society. They later made the ‘X’ look like a swastika.
