Biography - A Short Wiki

Remembered as the leader and self-proclaimed prophet of a sub-sect of the Branch Davidians, he rose to infamy in 1993 when, raided by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the United States Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, his Waco, Texas compound caught on fire and he and over seventy of his followers perished.

Born Vernon Wayne Howell in Houston, Texas, he later changed his name to David Koresh. He was legally married to a woman named Rachel Jones, and he fathered fifteen children through various relationships and marriages within his sect.
