August 9 in Religion History

On August 9, 1969 actress Sharon Tate and four other people were found brutally slain at Tate’s Los Angeles home; cult leader Charles Manson and a group of his followers were later convicted of the crime.

And in 1995 Grateful Dead lead singer Jerry Garcia — a cult figure of a different kind — died in Forest Knolls, Calif., of a heart attack at age 53, AP writes.
