David Jones was the brother of Rachel and Michele Jones. David was an ardent follower, one of Koresh’s trained warriors. David was a bodyguard for Koresh. He slept with a firearm next to his bed.

David Jones worked as a mail carrier for the U.S. Postal Service. On the morning of the raid, Jones was driving in his mail car. As he returned to the ranch, he noticed a parked vehicle and asked the person inside if he was lost. Jones somehow suspected that the driver was a journalist. Sources say the journalist did not specifically tell Jones about the raid, but the conversation raised Jones’s suspicions.

Jones, 38, was killed by a gunshot to the right side of his face. His corpse was found atop a cinder-block structure where Koresh stashed much of his ammunition. It’s unknown if that wound was self-inflicted.
