Dead in Los Angeles
This set started off as a couple of photos taken on Cielo Street-- where the Sharon Tate murder took place. I was working on a shoot next door, and the location manager told us that the old address doesn't exist anymore. When the last owner, Trent Reznor sold the house, the new owner bought two neighboring houses, and combined the properties, and getting a new address.

TV Producer Gavin Hurrell, who lived next door at the time of the murders, often said that the whole mountain top was cursed.

Later, when Gavin Hurrell went broke when a television program he bet everything on-- Honey Vicarro-- tanked, his house became a crumbling Xanadu. He lived there until his death, when it was sold for back taxes.
