Thirty years ago, 909 Americans were led to their death by the Rev. Jim Jones in a mass murder-suicide pact in a South American jungle, shortly after Jones' gunmen killed a visiting U.S. congressman and four others at a nearby airstrip.
On November 18, 1978, more than 900 people died in a mass murder-suicide at Jonestown, a cult commune in Guyana. Its leader, the Rev. Jim Jones, called himself God. He persuaded followers to kill their children first and then drink fruit punch laced with cyanide. Of the nearly 1,000 church members who were present at the start of that day, only 33 survived. Eleven people fled through the jungle: Richard Clark, age 42 Julius Evans, 30 Sandra Evans, 30 Sonya Evans, 11 Sharla Evans, 7 Shirelle Evans, 5 Johnny Franklin, 33 Diane Louie, 26 Robert Paul, 33 Leslie Wilson, 21 Jakari Wilson, 3 Fourteen people lived through airport ambush: Monica Bagby, 18 Jim Bogue, 36 Edith Bogue, 39 Teena Bogue, 22 Juanita Bogue, 21 Tommy Bogue, 17 Harold Cordell, 42 Vernon Gosney, 25 Chris O'Neal, 20 Edith Parks, 64 Gerald Parks, 45 Dale Parks, 27 Brenda Parks, 18 Tracy Parks, 12 Four people were sent away by Jones or his mistress: Mike Carter, 20 Tim Carter, 30
Cyanide was being bought and shipped to the Rev. Jim Jones' jungle compound in South America for at least two years before 909 Americans died there at the command of their cult leader, CNN has learned.
