The group worked as website designers and had their own company called Higher Source.
They designed the website for the San Diego Polo Club.
The group had a list of approved movies they could and couldn’t watch.
In the mansion a list of approved and not approved films was discovered. They did not provide much explanation for why they could or couldn’t watch certain films, for example, they were allowed to watch Whoopi Goldberg film Eddie and not the James Bond film GoldenEye. They were allowed to watch a NASA video about space exploration but it had a note attached that read, “This might prove to be a few laughs. This is the official version of NASA’s Apollo moon mission.”
They also had a seating chart with assigned seats for when they watched TV.
The group was incredibly structured. All food had to be cooked exactly the same way, every time.They had to sign in and out every time they left the house. They kept their living space very clean and even took the trash out the morning of their suicide.
They all ate the same last meal at Marie Callender's.
The night before their mass suicide, the group went to a Marie Callender’s restaurant and all ordered a meal of a garden salad, turkey pot pie, cheesecake with blueberries, and iced tea.
The freezer in the mansion where they were found was full of Starbucks’ Java Chip ice cream.
