The Killing of Sharon Tate by Lawrence Schiller

The Killing of Sharon Tate

By Lawerence Schiller

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.

Pages: 126

Publisher: New American Library; 1st edition (1970)

    I want to read this book.
    It has been decades since Sharon’s death, but I still admire her life and mourn her passing.

      George after reading so many of your comments and seeing your videos of the House of Sharon Tate. Yes, I agree that you really show your loyalty to Sharon, every time you have something to say about her. She was an amazing person. I feel so badly about her not getting to see her baby. Here she had been waiting 8 1/2 months to see this little one. She made sure that everything she did was a healthy choice for her child. She would have been a wonderful mother. I think she read about every book on babies, she couldn’t have possibly left anything unread. I remember when it was on the news. I asked my dad what happened and he said some movie stars were killed. The 2 bodies were still covered in the front yard. I just can’t imagine what the families went through. Even though a number of people were at the funerals, it was the behind closed doors that people don’t even know about. So sad. I would love to here from you. You’re an inspiration to me. Keep up the good work.

    I read this book and then read “Child of Satan, Child of God” shortly after.
    In the Sharon Tate novel she is still appears to be not thinking clearly, indeed Atkins was still under the influence of Manson.
    In her bio she seems to feel some remorse but had not completely found her way through the fog of her past. ( Her 1976 interview attests to this)
    It was a long road to recovery for Sadie Mae.
    Just my opinion.

    I to am a big fan of Sharon’s. Books read Restless Souls, and now Helter Skelter. I just purchased Recollection by Debra Tate . I loved Sharon she inhanced the sixties so beautifully…..what if she was alive today I always ask myself. And thank you George Vreeland for all your interesting videos about Sharon.

    This book is a tale of 2 cities. The first part that gives a sort of preamble of the changes happening in the 60s is really good. The second part which is about the murders and kind of how the captures happened is semi useful ¬> if you know the story well, it serves up a little background info that can’t hurt. If you don’t know the story, it will lay an interesting foundation. The third part, which is supposed to be Susan Atkins’ confession is total garbage. You really need to read her taped interview on this site, with Richard Caballero and her grand jury testimony. You’ll either laugh or despair at the third section of this book.
    Is it worth buying ? If you can get it cheap, yes. If it’s on sale for a King’s ransome, try and beat the price down or be patient and wait till you see it at a price that you’re prepared to part with.
