People’s Temple Mass Suicide — BLOG 44

Sunday November 19, 1978


An incredible story coming out of Guyana in South America tonight involving Jim Jones, the People’s Temple and Congressmen Leo Ryan.

Ryan and some news people traveled there to investigate the People’s Temple where Ryan was shot and killed.Then Jones and 900 of his followers drank a cyanide Kool-aid in a mass suicide.

Lots of nervous people at City Hall tonight.

It’s raining tonight. Just another depressing night in San Francisco.
