41 years ago today the Jonestown massacre claimed the lives of 918 Americans. When the people of Jonestown died, their bodies remained where they fell for 4 days. Sprayed with pesticides and crowded into military body bags, the remains of Jonestown’s dead were shipped to Dover Air Force Base in Delaware for processing. In the end 593 people were identified leaving 320 bodies mostly those of children, unidentified. As families arranged to recover their love ones, 409 bodies were left unclaimed. This is not a normal episode of the program but rather a memorial to those who died on November 18, 1978 deep in the jungles of Guyana.
