Jim Jones (1931-1978) was an American preacher & faith healer turned cult leader who conspired with his inner circle to direct a mass murder-suicide of his followers in his jungle commune at Jonestown, Guyana. He launched the Peoples Temple in Indiana during the 1950s.
In 1978, media reports surfaced of human rights abuses in the Peoples Temple in Jonestown. U.S. Representative Leo Ryan led a delegation to the commune to investigate. Ryan & others were murdered by gunfire while boarding a return flight with some former cult members who had wished to leave. Jones then ordered & likely coerced a mass suicide & mass murder of 918 commune members, 304 of them children, almost all by cyanide-poisoned Flavor Aid.
