A chilling cult convinced 39 people to end their lives to “board an alien spaceship” for a new life among the stars.

The leader of Heaven’s Gate filled the minds of his followers with strange beliefs and, after an anonymous tip-off, police arrived at a mansion in a posh San Diego neighbourhood on this day (March 26) in 1997 to discover a horrifying scene.

Inside, they found the bodies of 39 men and women, all dressed identically.

The leader, Marshall Applewhite, had persuaded them that they could hitch a ride on a spaceship hiding behind the Hale Bop comet, which was passing Earth at the time.

He too was found dead alongside the others, all wearing badges reading “Heaven’s Gateway Club” pinned to their matching tracksuits and Nike shoes.

One of the first officers on the scene, Detective Rick Scully, vividly recalls the tragic sight he encountered upon arrival.

Bodies were discovered in every room, covered in sheets. Detective Scully said: “It was like being in the Twilight Zone. We were wandering from room to room to room, and every room we went into we were finding bodies.”

“You’re thinking, ‘When is this going to end? How many bodies are going to be in here? How many rooms are there in this place? Because every room we went in had bodies stacked up like cordwood.”
