March 26th, 1997

On the 26th of March 1997, something interesting happened right in California, United States of America. In one suburb in Rancho Santa Fe. In the meantime, an anonymous individual had flagged the police of a suspicious act. Consequently, they broke into the suspected mansion only to discover 39 victims having committed a mass suicide. Subsequently, the crime scene was blatant as they found 39 cold blooded bodies. Interestingly, 21 were women and 18 were men, all members of a religious cult called Heaven’s gate. Meanwhile, various imaginations were presumed until the truth was revealed. Howbeit, they had no recognizable indications of blood, struggle or physical injury. But instead, all evidence pointed to suicide.

It was nonetheless clear that the belief system of the cult had roots in astral projection. Moreover, history tells of one Marshall Applewhite, a music educator was their leader.

Persuasively, he guaranteed them that an extraterrestrial spacecraft was going to come behind the Hale-Bopp comet of 1997. And take them to the “Kingdom of heaven”, their anticipated destination.
