Rachel Jones’ Wiki
Houston lawyer Jack Zimmermann said Jones was a very “pretty woman with long blond hair, dressed in dark slacks and a sweatshirt.”
Zimmerman added, “She was polite and pleasant and very quiet. She acted like a wife whose husband was conducting business at home, and she was carefully letting him do his business.”
Jones had an older brother, David Jones, and a younger sister, Michelle Jones, who were also part of Koresh’s cult. Their father, Perry Jones, died in a shootout with the agents of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms at the compound.

A close friend of the Jones’, Mark Bunds said, “Rachel used to be a real bubbly kid, real loving and happy and fun. She didn’t seem to be the same way when I came back to Waco four years ago. She was definitely more serious, and quiet.”
