22. There are aspects of this South Carolina story I can't get out of my mind.

From the Metro in the U.K.:



Timothy Jones Sr said he feared his son was losing his mind. Jones Sr got tattoos of his five dead grandchildren, which he was asked to show the court (Picture: ABC)

According to investigators, Jones stated that he believed the children were
going to kill him, chop him up and feed him to the dogs.’ Pictured is his
son Elias (Picture: KTLA)



Jones strangled Gabriel with a belt because his
hands were too big to choke him properly

. . .

The drastic decline of Timothy Jones Jr – who transformed from religious father with a good job to a physically abusive cultist – was exactly what his father feared.

‘This is the Tim I was scared I would see one day. I mean, he’s got some relatives, his mother, unfortunately they’re not right, you know…It’s just bad DNA I guess. He’s sick, man, that’s all there is to it,’ Tim Jones Sr said.

Tim Jones Sr later told the court that he thought his son was losing his mind. He summed up his son’s relationships, religious choices, and the way he disciplined his children as ‘a train wreck.’

After the murders, authorities found handwritten notes in Jones car that seemed to detail ways to dispose of the evidence that read ‘melt bodies!’ and ‘saw bones to dust or small pieces.’
