The night after the Tate murders, the Family once again drove around Los Angeles looking for more people to kill. Unlike the previous night, Manson himself traveled with the group, but had his followers to do the messiest work. They settled on a home in the Los Feliz neighborhood, next door to a house where the Family had attended a party the previous year. Manson snuck in and tied up Leno and Rosemary LaBianca, a married couple who owned a supermarket chain. He then sent his cronies inside, where they stabbed the LaBiancas to death in grisly fashion.
This is extremely similar to the death of the Changs at the hands of the clown cult, who invade their home, tie them up, and stab husband and wife to death in their stomachs and backs – the same way the LaBiancas were killed. Did Murphy and co-writer Brad Falchuk draw on these murders when crafting the scene? It seems likely, especially considering another similarity between the real-life crime scene and the fictional one.
