As a tour guide specializing in notorious Hollywood deaths, Scott Michaels is well aware of America's morbid fascination with the dark side of Tinseltown. But on the 50th anniversary of the murders of actress Sharon Tate and four others at the hands of Charles Manson's apocalyptic cult, he has never seen anything like it.Michaels drives his customers up to Cielo Drive, the leafy and winding road above exclusive Beverly Hills where director Roman Polanski's wife Tate -- eight-and-a-half months pregnant -- was stabbed to death in the early hours of Aug. 9, 1969 .Tate, just 26, pleaded for the life of her unborn child as she was stabbed to death by Manson's disciples, four of whom broke into her house at night.While Michaels' "Dearly Departed" museum in Los Angeles serves up a range of macabre mementos and grisly guided tours of deaths ranging from Janis Joplin to the "Black Dahlia," the Manson murders stand apart.
