The Manson Family Murders Are Just One Of Hollywood's Darkest Moments

The news that Quentin Tarantino is doing his own take on the Manson Family murders has renewed interest in the crime spree that shocked the nation.

If you're not sure why it remains one of the bloodiest stains on the streets of Tinseltown, here's the short version:

Not only was movie star Sharon Tate (seen above in her husband Roman Polanski's film The Fearless Vampire Killers) murdered, she was done so in brutal fashion — while eight-and-a-half months pregnant. Four other people were murdered that night after Charles Manson's followers broke into the couple's Los Angeles mansion.

And one of the most disturbing parts? The motive for the crime has never been confirmed as Manson didn't even know Polanski, Tate, or their friends. Police even theorize he meant to kill the home's previous tenant, a record producer who had snubbed him.

Gone too soon.

On Tuesday evening, America's Got Talent honored Dr. Brandon Rogers by airing the late medical professional's audition a month after his untimely death. As we previously reported, Rogers died unexpectedly after getting into a terrible car accident back in June. This complicated things for NBC as Brandon was a standout contestant for this season of AGT and his audition hadn't even aired yet.
