It’s been almost 54 years since the notorious Manson Family murders that left seven people dead in a two-day rampage in Beverly Hills, California.

Manson was fresh out of prison in 1967 when he landed on California’s hippie scene and capitalized on a steady supply of young adults eager to belong to tight-knit, counterculture communities. Manson taught them of a coming race war in which the Black Panthers and government fight one another. Before long, he was encouraging his followers — known as “The Family” — to start the war themselves since the Black Panthers weren’t making a move.

That plan was put into motion on August 9, 1969, when Charles Manson sent five Manson Family members to the Beverly Hills home of actress Sharon Tate and director Roman Polanski. When the cult members were done with their macabre task, five people — including Tate and an heir to the Folger’s coffee dynasty — were dead. The killers wrote “PIG” on the front door with Tate’s blood as they left. The next day, the family killed Leno and Rosemary LaBianca and wrote “DEATH TO PIGS” on the wall with their blood.

Two months later, Manson and his followers were apprehended and charged with the murders. As the investigation dragged on, at least two other deaths were linked to the Manson Family.
