Cult Calendar – April 19, 1993
The 51 day stand-off ends in a fiery climax,  beginning with the FBI tear-gassing the compound, resulting in more shooting and several fires, the starting of which is attributed to the Branch Davidians. The siege ultimately claims the lives of 76, including two pregnant women and over 20 children. David Koresh and others were later found to have been shot in the head indicating suicide or assisted suicide. 
Two years later, Timothy McVeigh detonates explosives outside of the Alfred P. Murrah federal building in Oklahoma City as revenge for the siege at Waco.

Cult Calendar– March 26
Heaven Can’t Wait
On March 26, 1997, surviving Heaven’s Gate member Rio DiAngelo received a Fed-Ex package with a videotape ("Do’s Final Exit,") and a note:
“By the time you read this, we will have exited our bodies.”
That day, police arrived at a rented 9,200-sq.-ft. mansion in a gated San Diego community to find the other 39 members of the Heaven’s Gate cult dead in the largest and most publicized mass suicide to happen in America. The members, aged 26 to 72, killed themselves in three waves on March 24, 25 and 26 to coincide with the arrival of the comet Hale Bop and a trailing UFO.
Most of the bodies were arranged neatly on their beds with their faces and torsos covered with a purple cloth. Each body, dressed in identical black shirts and sweat pants, brand new black-and-white Nikes, had a five dollar bill and three quarters in their pockets, luggage at their side and armband patches reading “Heaven’s Gate Away Team.”
The group, led by Marshall Applewhite, (pictured above, the third to the last to commit suicide) ate a final meal of turkey pot pie, house salad with tomato-vinagrette dressing, blueberry cheesecake and iced tea, together at Marie Callendar’s earlier that week. Their recipe for death:  phenobarbital in apple sauce, washed down with vodka and a plastic bag over the head.

Waco: Walking Boots and Achy Breaky Hearts
After the initial raid and shootout with the ATF on Februrary 28, the Branch Davidian compound remains under siege by the FBI, having survived injuries and living without contact with the outside world, food, water, heat or electricity. Week Three begins with a new tactic for torture: bright lights and pumping the jams all night long– including Christmas carols, Tibetan chants, Nancy Sinatra’s, “These Boots were Made for Walkin’” and the screams of rabbits being killed. Though considered, the annoying pop-country hit “Achy Breaky Heart” by Billy Ray Cyrus apparently didn’t make the perverted playlist.
