MASS SUICIDE-MURDER
JONESTOWN, GUYANA
NOVEMBER 18, 1978

Reference: FBI, San Francisco communication March 12, 1979
Examination requested by: FBI, San Francisco
Specimens:

This report confirms and supplements information telephonically furnished to Colonel Cowan on March 15, 1979, of dental information set forth in the referenced FBI communication concerning Selika Bordenave.

It should be noted, Page 37 of Latent Fingerprint Section report dated January 23, 1979, indicates that body #53-C, has been identified by fingerprints appearing on a Guyana, S.A., Personal Identification fingerprint card, dated October 15, 1977, bearing the name Selika Glordine Bordenove. This would appear to be the same individual as mentioned above, with the difference in the spelling of the last name being caused by the Guyana official recording the fingerprints.

[Page 2 consists of handwritten note summarizing results reported on page 1.]
