A two-part documentary totalling four hours about a cold case murder concerning a young woman named Reet Jurvetsen. Originally from Montreal, Canada, the woman was found stabbed 150+ times in November 1969 by the side of Mulholland Drive, down the road from where the Tate murders occurred months earlier. In this program, the cold case detectives note that the identity of the victim was uncovered recently (previously known as "Jane Doe #59") and that the MO is similar to the Manson murders, so they go about interviewing several people associated with the Manson family and murders in an attempt to link Reet's death with them. They also attempt to find out if John Haught's so-called suicide, which occurred 10 day's prior to Reet's murder was really a suicide. In the process, the probable true motive for the LaBianca murders is revealed. Throughout the program, there are excerpts played from recordings of phone calls a man named Marlin had with Charles Manson during his years of incarceration, thus the title.
