The Killing of Sharon Tate
This is Susan Atkins’ published confession. It was leaked to the press, appeared in Los Angeles Times, and then finally it was published here, framed by a brief summary of the crimes. The 1969 confession makes this book a good reference to contrast all of Atkins’ accounts throughout the years.
Book Descripton: The bizarre slaying of actress Sharon Tate and four others stunned the nation. Even more shocking, however, is the slowly unfolding story behind the murders – a true horror tale of cold-blooded killers – of a hippie commune that preached love and practiced murder-of the satanic leader, Charles Manson, who ruled his subjects like a god and sent them out to commit unspeakable crimes ….
Here is the complete, exclusive story behind the Tate killings – told in the words of the pretty 21-year-old who calmly confessed to the most hideous crime of the decade.
