Abigail Folger was an American coffee heiress and one of the five victims of the notorious “Tate murders” that took place in August 1969 in Los Angeles. Born in San Francisco, to Peter Folger, who was the chairman and the president of the ‘Folger Coffee Company,’ Abigail was a bright student in her younger years. Apart from being a good student academically, she also devoted time to arts. She graduated in art history from ‘Harvard University’ and also pursued musical theater. Following her graduation, she worked as a publicity director at the ‘University of California Art Museum.’ Around the same time, she started dating an aspiring screenwriter named Wojciech Frykowski. Abigail also did a lot of charity work and aspired to become an actor while working different jobs to make ends meet. On the evening of August 8, 1969, Abigail and Wojciech joined their friends, actor Sharon Tate and hairstylist Jay Sebring, for dinner. They all drove back to Sharon’s Cielo Drive estate. In the early hours of August 9, four members of the Charles Manson cult entered the house and killed five occupants, including Sharon Tate and Abigail, in the house. The ruthless murders made headlines across the world.
