The FBI’s investigation into the events of November 18, 1978 focused upon the assassination of Leo Ryan and any actions of members of Peoples Temple which may have shown evidence of a conspiracy related to that assassination. Code-named RYMUR – short for Ryan Murder – the investigation yielded 2750 serials totalling more than 10,000 pages, eventually separated into 42 large sections.
The following chart lists all 42 Sections of the RYMUR investigation. The first column lists each Section in its most complete form. The Section column lists the range of serials within each Section. The third column is of the FBI’s official RYMUR release of 2014.
It should be noted that the Sections in the first column are unique to this site. Each entry was based upon the FBI’s official release of documents in 2014 (from column 3), and was then augmented with additional documents, some released by the State Department in 2016, some released as the litigation of McGehee et al v. Justice continues, and some released by the FBI in 2001 but not included in the 2014 release.
It should also be noted that many of the entries of column 2 are not yet complete. For example, the range of serials within Section 31 is not completed, whereas that of Section 22 is. As the division of each Section into individual serials is completed, they will be added to these entries.
A list of people who were listed in the FBI’s RYMUR documents and who did not die in Jonestown appears here. This list was current as of 2012, and will be updated as more individual serials are uploaded.
