Officials find remains of 9 Jonestown victims

DOVER, Del. – Police said the cremated remains of nine victims of a 1978 mass cult suicide-murder in Jonestown, Guyana, have turned up in a former funeral home in Delaware.

Officials with the state Division of Forensic Science are working to identify all remains and to notify relatives.

The agency and Dover police said in a statement Thursday that the remains were discovered at the former Minus Funeral Home in Dover.

The division last week responded to a request to check the former funeral home after 38 containers of remains were discovered inside. Thirty-three containers were marked and identified. They spanned a period from about 1970 to the 1990s, and included the Jonestown remains.

Bodies of 911 massacre victims were brought to Dover Air Force Base, home to the U.S. military’s largest mortuary.
