Publicidade

James Warren "Jim" Jones foi o fundador e líder do culto Templo dos Povos, famoso devido ao suicídio/assassinato em massa em novembro de 1978 de 918 dos seus membros em Jonestown, Guiana, além do assassinato do congressista Leo Ryan e de quatro mortes adicionais em Georgetown, capital guianense. Quase 300 crianças foram assassinadas em Jonestown, quase todas por envenenamento por ingestão de cianeto. Jones morreu de um ferimento de bala na cabeça; suspeita-se que sua morte foi um suicídio.

Jones nasceu em Indiana e começou o Templo do Povo na década de 1950. Ele mudou a sua seita para a Califórnia em meados dos anos 1960 e ganhou notoriedade com o movimento da sede da igreja em São Francisco, no início de 1970.
