**Get early access to the next episode (plus special bonuses) by subscribing to our Patreon page: https://www.patreon.com/MWMconfessions Forty years ago, 918 men women and children died in Jonestown, Guyana. Many of them were American’s who had followed the cult leader to create a new home and a new way of life. On November 18, 1978, the small town in South America would be front page news around the world for weeks as stories about the horrors of the “People Temple” cult continued to flood in. What began as an all inclusive religious group ended with what Jim Jones, the leader, called “Revolutionary Suicide.” Jones convinced those 918 people to drink cyanide of their own free will… although there is some evidence to suggest some were injected with the poison. Forty years later experts are still trying to comprehend the reasons behind one of the biggest scale single day murder sprees of American people in history.

Later, when the two men involved were caught, the singular moniker remained. Kenneth Bianchi (pron: Bee-unk-key) and Angelo Buono (Bwono) were cousins who murdered at least ten young women between October 1977 and February 1978. The nickname came from how, after raping and torturing their victims, they strangled them before displaying them naked and grotesquely posed on the hillsides around Los Angeles. In our news section: - Two serial killers commit suicide within days of each other - Western Australia considering tough new laws that will exclude serial killers from parole - Serial killer, Rose West, set to propose to her prison girlfriend.
