If the Bible is true, then I'm Christ.
— David Koresh

David Koresh, born Vernon Wayne Howell, was an American cult leader who played a central role in the Waco siege of 1993. As the head of the Branch Davidians, Koresh claimed to be its final prophet.

August 17, 1959, Koresh was born to a 14-year-old alcoholic and absentee father. At the age of 22, Koresh claimed to have become a born-again Christian in the Southern Baptist Church and soon joined his mother's church, the Seventh-day Adventist Church, but was thrown out after making unwanted advances toward the pastor's teenage daughter. In 1982, he moved to Waco, Texas, where he joined the Branch Davidians.

Using his charisma and relationship with Branch Davidian leader Lois Roden, Koresh climbed the ranks of the sect, eventually becoming its leader and self-proclaimed prophet. Using his newfound power and influence, Koresh manipulated his female followers into having sexual relationships with. Young girls especially proved to be his favourite victims.

Fearing that the United States government might put an end to his cult, Koresh ordered the Branch Davidians to illegally stockpile guns and buy a compound in order to protect themselves. Ironically, this only made them a target. On February 28, 1993, the ATF and FBI planned a raid on the Branch Davidians' compound. This raid eventually escalated into the infamous Waco siege during which multiple Branch Davidians, including children and Koresh himself, were killed.
