Cielo Drive Beverly Hills, CA

This neighborhood unfortunently, will be forever remembered by it’s past.

On Aug. 8, 1969, members of the Manson family—led by Charles Milles Manson—broke into a residence at 10050 Cielo Drive in Beverly Hills. The home was being rented by director Roman Polanski and his wife, actress Sharon Tate. In the early morning hours of Aug. 9, Tate, who was eight and a half months pregnant, was murdered along with four others (Polanski was abroad at the time). Manson was not present during the killings, but was convicted of masterminding the murders. The home where the slayings occurred has since been demolished and the location’s postal address changed.
