RYMUR Section 24 – Serial 1681

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.

This page includes the contents of Section 24, consisting of Serial 1681. It comprises the FBI report of January 12, 1979, compiling interviews and government documents on the assassination of Leo Ryan and four others at the Port Kaituma airstrip.

The table below lists each document by serial number, the number of pages within each serial, the date the serial was generated, the federal agency originating the serial, and a brief description. Each entry then includes the PDF and the text of the serial. A listing of abbreviations used in the RYMUR documents – including FBI field offices and State Department embassies – appears here. Additional notes appear at the bottom of the page.

In citing these documents, each serial should open with the official designation of “RYMUR 89-4286.” Documents from this page would be cited as “RYMUR 89-4286-1681.”
