Nancy first met the Manson family trough her friend Deirdre Lansbury, the daughter of actress Angela Lansbury (Murder, She Wrote).
Nancy was with Manson when Manson instructed Susan Atkins, Patricia Krenwinkel, and Linda Kasabian to go with Tex Watson to Sharon Tate’s house at Cielo Drive and “do whatever Tex says”. Nancy and Manson reportedly went to Tate’s house right after the murders to tamper with the crime scene.
Nancy Pitman was described by district attorney Vincent Bugliosi as a tough, vicious little girl, filled with hostility that was just waiting to erupt.
