  • Description

    FILM DIRECTOR ROMAN POLANSKI, WHO WAS IN EUROPE WHEN HIS EIGHT-MONTHS-PREGNANT WIFE, ACTRESS SHARON TATE, AND FOUR OTHERS WERE MURDERED IN HIS LUXURY HILLSIDE MANSION IN BEL AIR, CALIFORNIA, ON THE NIGHT OF 8-9 AUGUST, ARRIVED AT LONDON'S HEATHROW AIRPORT TODAY (10 AUGUST) TO FLY BACK TO LOS ANGELES.

    HE WAS DRIVEN STRAIGHT TO THE PLANE WHILE A FRIEND HANDLED THE TRAVEL FORMALITIES. NO-ONE IN HIS PARTY WOULD COMMENT ON THE TRAGEDY, WHILE MR. POLANSKI HIMSELF SEEMED DAZED AS HE WALKED TO THE AIRCRAFT STEPS.

    ROMAN POLANSKI'S BEST-KNOWN FILM, 'ROSEMARY'S BABY', WAS A MACABRE STORY OF A GIRL WHO HAS A BABY BY THE DEVIL. THE HOUSE HE RENTED IN BEL AIR WAS THE SCENE OF REAL-LIFE TRAGEDY. MISS TATE, ANOTHER WOMAN, AND THREE MEN WERE FOUND BY A MAID EARLY ON SATURDAY (9 AUGUST) MORNING EITHER STABBED OR SHOT, MISS TATE'S BODY WAS LINKED BY A WHITE NYLON CORD TO THAT OF HER FORMER FIANCE, JAY SEBRING.

    A 19-YEAR-OLD HOUSEBOY AT THE POLANSKI HOME, WILLIAM GARRETSON, HAS BEEN BOOKED BY POLICE ON FIE COUNTS OF SUSPICION OF MURDER.
