    It sounds like maybe mental illness may have ran in their family (although in the article I didn't see it said anything about his aunt suffering from any type of mental illness).

    David Koresh's mother murdered

    *snips*
    The mother of infamous Branch Davidian sect leader David Koresh has been stabbed to death, and Koresh's aunt was in custody on a murder charge Saturday.

    Bonnie Clark Halderman, 60, was found Friday afternoon at the home of her sister, Beverly Clark, in a rural area near Chandler, Henderson County Sheriff Ray Nutt said. Chandler is about 175 miles north of Houston.


    Ok... this states she is 60... David was born in 1959, which means she would have been around 10 yrs old when she had David. Wow... that is way young to have a baby...

    That is odd, do you think he may have been adopted later on? I don't know much about him..

    According to Wiki, she was 16 and single when she gave birth to him. Perhaps the article has a typo?

    Im sure this family is twisted 6 ways to Sunday. There are probably LOTS of family secrets we dont know about, nor care to. I do not wish to debate his beliefs, but I do have to say that this is the first I have heard of his mom being SO young.

    It may answer many questions regarding his physch profile. I will keep my eyes open for any updates........hmmmm

    If she isn't the most disgusting woman I've ever seen she's damn close.

    Has anyone heard anything about a motive?

    January 2009:

    A woman charged in the stabbing death of her sister last Friday has a long history of mental illness, a family member told the Review Monday...

    Haldeman had reportedly gone to Clark’s residence Friday to take her to the doctor on the afternoon of her death.

    “Beverly had suffered from mental illness since she was in her late teens,“ Helrigel said. “She was sick. Like so many other times, Bonnie was trying to get her to where she needed to be to get the help she needed to get her back on track.”
