After a sudden violent rainstorm started, emotional scenes developed between family members. While most of the Ryan delegation began to depart on a large dump truck to the Port Kaituma airstrip, Ryan and Dwyer stayed behind in Jonestown to process any additional defectors.
Shortly before the dump truck left, Temple loyalist Larry Layton, the brother of Deborah Layton, demanded to join the group. Several defectors voiced their suspicions about Larry Layton's motives.
Shortly after the dump truck initially departed, Temple member Don "Ujara" Sly grabbed Ryan while wielding a knife. The entourage had originally scheduled a passenger Twin Otter from Guyana Airways to fly them back to Georgetown.
Because of the defectors departing Jonestown, the group grew in number and now an additional aircraft was required. Accordingly, the U. Layton was a passenger on the Cessna, the first aircraft to set up for takeoff.
He wounded Bagby and Gosney, and tried to kill Dale Parks, who disarmed him. Meanwhile, some passengers had boarded the larger Twin Otter.
A tractor with a trailer attached, driven by members of the Temple's Red Brigade security squad, arrived at the airstrip and approached the Twin Otter.
Brown was killed along with Robinson, Harris, and Temple defector Patricia Parks in the few minutes of shooting. Ryan was killed after being shot more than twenty times.
After the shootings, the Cessna's pilot, along with the pilot and co-pilot of the Twin Otter, fled in the Cessna to Georgetown.
The damaged Twin Otter and the injured Ryan delegation members were left behind on the airstrip. Before leaving Jonestown for the airstrip, Ryan had told Garry that he would issue a report that would describe Jonestown "in basically good terms".
After Ryan's departure from Jonestown toward Port Kaituma, Marceline Jones made a broadcast on the public address system, stating that everything was all right, and asking residents to return to their homes.
A minute cassette tape, known as the "death tape",   records part of the meeting Jones called inside the pavilion in the early evening of November 18, When the assembly gathered, referring to the Ryan delegation's air travel back to Georgetown, Jones told the gathering:.
One of those people on that plane is gonna shoot the pilot, I know that. I didn't plan it but I know it's gonna happen.
They're gonna shoot that pilot and down comes the plane into the jungle and we had better not have any of our children left when it's over, because they'll parachute in here on us.
Parroting Jones' prior statements that hostile forces would convert captured children to fascism , one Temple member stated: "The ones that they take captured, they're gonna just let them grow up and be dummies.
On the tape, Jones urged Temple members to commit "revolutionary suicide". Temple member Christine Miller argued that the Temple should alternatively attempt an airlift to the Soviet Union.
Jim McElvane, a former therapist who had arrived in Jonestown only two days earlier, assisted Jones by arguing against Miller's resistance to suicide, stating "Let's make it a beautiful day" and later citing possible reincarnation.
After several exchanges in which Jones argued that a Soviet exodus would not be possible, along with reactions by other Temple members hostile to Miller, she backed down.
However, Miller may have ceased dissenting when Jones confirmed at one point that "the Congressman has been murdered" after the airstrip shooters returned.
When the Red Brigade members came back to Jonestown after Ryan's murder, Tim Carter, a Vietnam War veteran, recalled them having the " thousand-yard stare " of weary soldiers.
By this point, armed guards had taken up positions surrounding the pavilion area. Directly after this, Jones stated that "the Red Brigade's the only one that made any sense anyway," and, "the Red Brigade showed them justice.
According to escaped Temple member Odell Rhodes, the first to take the poison were Ruletta Paul and her one-year-old infant.
A syringe without a needle fitted was used to squirt poison into the infant's mouth, after which Paul squirted another syringe into her own mouth.
Clayton said that Jones approached people to encourage them to drink the poison and that, after adults saw the poison begin to take effect, "they showed a reluctance to die.
The poison caused death within five minutes for children,   less for babies, and an estimated 20—30 minutes for adults.
It is not clear if some initially thought the exercise was another White Night rehearsal. Rhodes reported being in close contact with dying children.
In response to reactions of seeing the poison take effect on others, Jones counseled, "Die with a degree of dignity. Lay down your life with dignity; don't lay down with tears and agony.
I tell you, I don't care how many screams you hear, I don't care how many anguished cries Rhodes described a scene of both hysteria and confusion as parents watched their children die from the poison.
He also stated that most present "quietly waited their own turn to die", and that many of the assembled Temple members "walked around like they were in a trance".
This crowd was surrounded by armed guards, offering members the basic dilemma of death by poison or death by a guard's hand.
Jones was found dead lying next to his chair in the pavilion between two other bodies, his head cushioned by a pillow. The events at Jonestown constituted the greatest single loss of American civilian life in a deliberate act until the incidents of September 11, Three high-ranking Temple survivors claimed they were given an assignment and thereby escaped death.
Dear Comrade Timofeyev, The following is a letter of instructions regarding all of our assets that we want to leave to the Communist Party of the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics.
Enclosed in this letter are letters which instruct the banks to send the cashiers checks to you. I am doing this on behalf of Peoples Temple because we, as communists, want our money to be of benefit for help to oppressed peoples all over the world, or in any way that your decision-making body sees fit.
At this point, Carter had a nervous breakdown , and was pulled away from the village by his equally distraught brother.
Just before the start of the final meeting in the pavilion, Garry and Lane were told that the people were angry with them.
The lawyers were escorted to a house used to accommodate visitors. According to them, they talked their way past two armed guards and made it to the jungle, before eventually arriving in Port Kaituma.
While in the jungle near the settlement, they heard gunshots. Four more people who were intended to be poisoned managed to survive. The only medical doctor to initially examine the scene at Jonestown was Mootoo, who visually examined over bodies and later told a Guyanese coroner's jury to have seen needle marks on at least However, no determination was made as to whether those injections initiated the introduction of poison or whether they were so-called "relief" injections to quicken death and reduce suffering from convulsions from those who had previously taken poison orally.
Mootoo and American pathologist Lynn Crook determined that cyanide was present in some bodies, while analysis of the contents of the vat revealed several tranquilizers as well as potassium cyanide and potassium chloride.
Plastic cups, Flavor Aid packets, and syringes, some with needles and some without, littered the area where the bodies were found. Mootoo concluded that a gunshot wound to Annie Moore could not have been self-inflicted, though Moore had also ingested a lethal dose of cyanide.
Guyanese authorities waived their requirement for autopsies in the case of unnatural death. Doctors in the U. Moore and Layton were selected among those autopsied, in part, because of the urging of the Moore family, including Rebecca Moore, the sister of the two victims, who was not a Temple member herself.
Found near Marceline Jones' body was a typewritten note, dated November 18, , signed by Marceline and witnessed by Moore and Maria Katsaris, stating:.
Please be sure that these assets do get to the USSR. I especially request that none of these are allowed to get into the hands of my adopted daughter, Suzanne Jones Cartmell.
For anyone who finds this letter, please honor this request as it is most important to myself and my husband James W. Moore also left a note, which in part stated: "I am at a point right now so embittered against the world that I don't know why I am writing this.
Someone who finds it will believe I am crazy or believe in the barbed wire that does NOT exist in Jonestown. No other specific reference is made to the events of the day.
The children loved it. So did everyone else. Found near Carolyn Layton's body was a handwritten note signed by Layton, witnessed by Katsaris and Moore, dated November 18, , stating, "This is my last will and testament.
I hereby leave all assets in any bank account to which I am a signatory to the Communist Party of the U. In the early evening of November 18, at the Temple's headquarters in Georgetown, Temple member Sharon Amos received a radio communication from Jonestown instructing the members at the headquarters to take revenge on the Temple's enemies and then commit revolutionary suicide.
At the airstrip, Reiterman photographed the aftermath of the shootings. A Guyanese government plane arrived the following morning to evacuate the wounded.
Guyanese soldiers eventually found them. Rhodes, Clayton, Garry, and Lane were also brought to Georgetown. Prokes died by suicide on March 14, during a press conference, four months after the Jonestown incident.
Nine hundred and twelve of the dead, including Jones himself, were collected by the United States military in Guyana, then transported by military cargo plane to Dover Air Force Base in Delaware, a location that had been used previously for mass processing of the dead from the Tenerife airport disaster.
The base's mortuary was tasked with fingerprinting, identifying, and processing the bodies. In August , the never-claimed cremated remains of 9 people from Jonestown were found in a former funeral home in Dover.
Those five were publicly identified in the hope that family would claim their remains, all 5 remained unclaimed by family and have been interred at the Jonestown Memorial at Evergreen Cemetery in Oakland, CA along with the remains of approximately half of those who perished on November 18, Larry Layton, who had fired a gun at several people aboard the Cessna, was initially found not guilty of attempted murder in a Guyanese court, employing the defense that he was "brainwashed".
Layton could not be tried in the U. The event was covered heavily by the media, and photographs pertaining to it adorned newspaper and magazine covers for months after its occurrence.
It was labeled a "cult of death" by both Time and Newsweek magazines. State Department itself criticized the latter's handling of the Temple. The group, which included Congressman Ryan's daughter Patricia, was involved in various personal, social and legal battles with a range of religious organizations, from The Family International and Scientology to David Koresh 's Branch Davidians , where they were found to be influential on law enforcement's concerns for children in the eventual Waco siege in After a slew of legal and fiscal issues, CAN disbanded in In late February , Al and Jeanne Mills co-founders of the Concerned Relatives and their daughter Daphene were shot and killed execution style in their Berkeley, California home.
The sheer scale of the event, as well as Jones' socialism, purported inconsistencies in the reported number of deaths, allegedly poor explanation of events related to said deaths, and existence of classified documents  led some to suggest CIA involvement ,     though the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence investigated the incident and announced that there was no evidence of CIA involvement at Jonestown.
The bodies of over of those who died are buried in a mass grave at Evergreen Cemetery in Oakland, California.
In , a memorial to them was erected at the cemetery. Although Jones used poisoned Flavor Aid, the drink mix was also commonly mistakenly referred to as Kool-Aid.
This has led to the phrase " drinking the Kool-Aid ", referring to a person or group holding an unquestioned belief, argument, or philosophy without critical examination.
Now deserted, the compound at Jonestown was first tended by the Guyanese government following the deaths. The buildings were mostly destroyed by a fire in the mids, after which the ruins were left to decay and be reclaimed by the jungle.
Jones recognized the drum, originally adapted for use during meal times, as the drum used for drink mixtures during the White Night exercises, and which he believed was used to hold the beverage mix of poison and grape-flavored punch during the events of November 18, In , with the help of Gerry Gouveia, a pilot involved with the Jonestown cleanup, a television crew recording a special for the 25th anniversary of the event returned to the site to uncover any remaining artifacts.
Gouveia also led the team to the former site of the pavilion, where they found the remains of a steel drum, an organ, and a bed of daisies growing where the bodies once lay.

Another blunder of China's foreign policy, supporting fascist regimes In the mids he and his wife incorporated the Peoples Temple in California and settled outside the town of Ukiah with some followers, believing that the move would protect them in the event of nuclear holocaust.
In Jones began holding services in San Francisco , and by he had opened another temple in Los Angeles. He began to make friends among politicians and the press in California and became a respected churchman.
Temple members were regularly humiliated, beaten, and blackmailed, and many were coerced or brainwashed into signing over their possessions—including their homes—to the church.
Black members and members of other minority groups were convinced that if they left the Peoples Temple they would be rounded up into government-run concentration camps.
Family members were kept apart and encouraged to inform on one another. A cable from the U. Embassy in Guyana to the U. Department of State in June characterized the autonomy that Jones subsequently found in Guyana this way:.
What we have, therefore, is a community of American citizens existing as a self-contained and self-governing unit in a foreign land and which, for all intents and purposes, is furnishing to the residents all of the community services such as civil administration, police and fire protection, education, health care, etc.
In November , U. He was investigating rumours that some members of the cult were being held against their will and that some were being subjected to physical and psychological abuse.
Other members attacked Ryan shortly before the vehicle left the compound, but he escaped unhurt, and the truck continued on with Ryan aboard.
Temple members then launched an attack at the airstrip from which Ryan and his company were to depart. Five people, including Ryan and three members of the press, were shot and killed, and 11 others were wounded.
In the wake of the shooting, Jones released radio orders for Temple members outside the compound to commit suicide. It was first squirted into the mouths of babies and children via syringe and then imbibed by adult members.
Jones himself died of a gunshot wound. Fewer than of the Temple members in Guyana survived the massacre; the majority of survivors either had defected that day or were in Georgetown.
Millions more had reportedly been deposited in bank accounts overseas. The Peoples Temple effectively disbanded after the incident and declared bankruptcy at the end of Only one man, Temple member Larry Layton, was tried in the United States for his involvement in the November 18 events.
He was found guilty of conspiracy and aiding and abetting in the murder of Ryan and the attempted murder of U. Another man, Charles Beikman, pleaded guilty to the attempted murder of a young girl and served a five-year prison term in Guyana.
