She was successful in her career and personal life. Tate was married to director Roman Polanski, but after 18 months, she was gruesomely murdered with four other people, by Charles Milles Manson's criminal group, 'The Family.'


Even though the actress begged to save the unborn child (she was about to give birth), she was killed mercilessly. On August 13, 1969, Sharon Tate was buried in a closed coffin in Culver City, CA with her child in her arms. The child was posthumously named Paul Richard Polanski.
