Jonestown Tapes

You could always go on Youtube but the site linked below has transcripts and audio files for the entire collection of tapes that were found at Jonestown.

The infamous "Death Tape" recording itself is completely heartbreaking and there's pretty much only one person who speaks up against Jones (Christine Miller).

There is also the "November 19th" tape that was recorded AFTER everyone died at Jonestown. If you dig around that site you'll see there are theories that perhaps Jones and his cohorts survived the night and then killed themselves later, to even more twisted conspiracies including everyone's favorite, the CIA.

There are also more mundane tapes such as audio recordings of sermons, popular music, and other material detailing their daily lives as well as lots of recordings of the cult leader Jim Jones. Some of the recordings sound even creepier because they have been recorded over but you can still hear the remnants of the original, giving it a ghostly quality. This is already creepy enough!
