Cause Of Parent's Death
As Jim Jones was a Religious leader, he launched a moment named Peoples Temple that helped the poor and included racial integration.
On November 18, 1978, he held a mass murder-suicide because the Soviet Union will not take them in. Instead, they will come and shoot their babies, torture their seniors and people living there. Total 918, people died at the massacre that included 909 temple members in Jonestown, Guyana.
Jim died of a headshot lying on the floor resting beside a pillow near his deck chair. His son Stephan stated he Jim might have ordered someone else to shoot him.
On the same day, Jones's wife Marceline was also found dead at the pavilion as she was poisoned. The day she died, it was stated she has taken some reporters on a tour of Jonestown.
What Happened To His Siblings
When the suicide massacre occurred, Stephan, Jim Jr., and Tim Jones have not involved it because they were going to play basketball competition with Peoples Temple against the Guyanese national team in Georgetown.
At that time, Jim Jones Jr's wife and unborn child indirectly got involved at the Jonestown massacre from which he lost them. He then shifted to San Francisco and remarried there from which he is now the father of three sons. His son Rob Jones is a basketball star at the University of San Diego.
Suzanne was married to Mike Cartmell and had two children. The pair decided to abandon the Temple and didn't sign up for their involvement in the massacre. After their decision, Jones openly said "my damned, no good for nothing daughter" and claimed she was not trustworthy.
In November 2006, she died of colon cancer and there was a signed note found at the time of her death. Her mother Marceline Jones directed that all the funds of Jones were to given to The Communist Party of the Soviet Union and not a penny should get in the hands of Suzanne. The note referred "I especially request that none of these are allowed to get into the hands of my adopted daughter, Suzanne Jones Cartmell."
John, Lew, and Agnes all died in the massacre. Agnes was a married woman who was thirty-five years old with four children, who also died that day.
Lew died beside his wife Terry and son Chaeoke, at the age of Twenty-one.
Jim Jon Prokes and his mother were also found dead at the suicide massacre as Jon was found poisoned Jim Jones's cabin.
