The cult leader’s followers murdered nine people in Tate’s home, including Tate and her unborn baby.
Abigail Folger, heiress to the Folger coffee fortune, was staying in that bedroom the night she was murdered, Clark told Channel 2.
“She was sitting on the bed when Susan Atkins walked by,” Clark told Channel 2. “They smiled at one another. She thought Atkins was a friend of Sharon Tate’s not realizing she was part of the Manson family.”
The auctioneer said he has paperwork to prove the authenticity of the bed frame.
A fan of Tate’s bought the bed frame from the original owner in the 1990s and a current fan bought it at the auction.
