Investigation at BQMRA has determined that Tim Carter, Michael Carter, and Michael Prokes have been described as members of “hit team” and/or “Planning Commission”. It has also been determined that these individuals were found in jungle with a large sum of money and letter to Soviet Embassy, Georgetown following assassination of Congressman Ryan and mass suicide at Jonestown.

Defectors interviewed to date have expressed fear for their safety from above named individuals as well as Deborah Touchette, Paula Adams, Eugene Smith, Odell Rhodes, other individuals now residing at Georgetown.

Pan American Airways (PAA) has previously requested that remaining survivors returning from Georgetown be accompanied by federal sky marshals. On 12-23-78 PAA has reiterated that request.

Request of the Bureau:

Bureau requested to determine circumstances surrounding Prokes, Tim and Mike Carter detention by Guyanese officials and details of funds and letter to Soviet Embassy.

In view of information from interviews to date and medical opinion of [name deleted] [Dr. Hardat Sukhdeo], it is requested that above information be provided to BQMRA prior to departure of all remaining People’s Temple (PT) survivors.
