the ’90s…Since 2005 Dearly Departed Tours has escorted over 21,000 passengers to the “dark side of Hollywood.”  Now Scott Michaels will have a space to share his collection of death-related artifacts, including bricks from the 1969 Manson murder scene and
Sharon Tate’s fireplace, bricks from The Ambassador Hotel, Jayne
