In 1969 Charlie Manson emerged from his prison cell onto the streets of Haight-Ashbury and soon became the leader of followers who became known as the Family. Manson wanted to get into the music business, but when that failed his criminal personality emerged and he and some of his followers became involved in torture and murder. Most notably were the murders of actress Sharon Tate who was eight months pregnant and four others at her home, along with the murders of Leon and Rosemary LaBianca.
