    Sharon Tate. She was killed by the Manson gang. She was almost 9 months pregnant at the time and she kept begging them to please save her baby. They cut the baby out. Needless to say both died. How horrific. I was about 9 years old when that happened and it's alway stuck with me. She was beautiful.
