In the World: The Manson Family Kills Again

Sunday, August 10, 1969

Members of the Manson Family, a cult led by Charles Manson, again ventured out into Los Angeles to commit murder. Early this Sunday morning they killed Leno and Rosemary LaBianca in their home in Los Feliz. It was here that the phrase “helter skelter” was written in blood on the LaBianca’s refrigerator door.

For more information on these events, you can read Helter Skelter, the book written by Vincent Bugliosi who prosecuted the case against Manson and his followers.
