Families Urge Board to Deny Parole for Manson Family Members Van Houten, Beausoleil
SACRAMENTO -- It has been almost 50 years since members of the Manson family murdered actress Sharon Tate and four of her friends. Members of the Manson family also committed several other murders and crimes across Southern California. Earlier this year, two separate parole panels recommended parole for two members of the Manson family, Leslie Van Houten and Robert Beausoleil.
