Sharon Tate had everything stretching out in front of her. She was the star of films like Valley of the Dolls, a marriage to a successful director, and a house in the hills. But in August 1969 her dream turned into a nightmare when members of the Manson family barged into her home to kill her and her friends in order to send a message to a Hollywood producer.

The world was shaken by Tate's death, but no one more than her family. Sharon's sister Debra, who was only 16 at the time, told People about the moment that her parents broke the news to her about the death of her sister:

My boyfriend at the time called to say he had heard on the radio that there was a fire at a house in Benedict Canyon and that one of the victims was Sharon Tate. My mom flung open the shower door and said, ‘Sharon’s dead.’ She was crying and wailing and shaking and her knees buckled and I remember the horror that comes with watching my little sister’s world crumble. It’s very horrifying when your parents fall out from beneath you.
