Waco Texas Tragedy

Dave Koresh Biography
David Koresh was the man responsible for the confused siege and arson of his religious compound outside of Waco, Texas in 1993. The fire killed Koresh and 74 followers, including 21 children. Koresh was born Vernon Wayne Howell to a 15 year old single mother. He never knew his father or his grandparents. He was a bad student, teased and ostracised, and his only interests were music and the bible. By 12, he could recite long passages from the book. He was welcomed into the Church of the Seventh Day Adventists in 1979 and quickly expelled again for being an evil influence on his contemporaries. Spurned by his religion, Koresh turned to his other love, music. He went to Hollywood dreaming of being a rock star. He failed and washed up in Waco in 1981 where he joined the Branch Davidians, an offshoot of the Adventists. The founders of this apocalyptic sect, Ben and Lois Roden, had decided a new Messiah would arrive, signifying the start of the Last Days. Koresh had an affair with Lois, the geriatric prophetess and the couple travelled to Israel.
