The Manson Family: Where Are They Now?

Their murderous two-day rampage in the summer of 1969 left seven dead, including actress Sharon Tate. A look back at some of the group’s most famous members:


Known as "Sexy Sadie," Atkins, then 21, participated in both nights of the killing spree. She told authorities it was she who wrote "PIG" on the front door with Sharon Tate's blood. She was found guilty of seven counts of murder.

Atkins was diagnosed with brain cancer while serving her life sentence at the Central California Women’s Facility in Chowchilla. She died in prison on September 24, 2009, at age 61.
