Less than a month following the court’s ruling in McGehee v. FBI, the Justice Department informed the plaintiffs that it had discovered approximately 10,000 additional pages of records related to Peoples Temple. The boxes which stored the papers had apparently been mislabeled, according to the FBI, and transferred to a document warehouse in suburban Northern Virginia.
It is not yet known whether the documents were generated by the Temple itself or by the RYMUR investigation, nor is it known if the pages duplicate what has already been reviewed or if they are a cache of previously-unknown records.
