Wrong place, wrong time. That summarizes the untimely end for socialite Abigail Folger. Born into great wealth, she was the great-granddaughter of the founder of Folger's Coffee.
The volunteer and civil rights activist was at Sharon Tate's home the night that members of the Manson family conducted its murderous rampage. Abigail tried to get away but was caught outside and stabbed a horrific 28 times.
One of the attackers, Patricia Krenwinkle, testified during her trial that Folger had told her to stop stabbing her, because she was already dead.
