Summary: daughter of former People's Temple cult members Al and Jeannie Mills who had been hospitalized in extremely critical condition after she was reportedly found shot in the head and severely wounded in a Berkeley, Calif. home-invasion shooting, in which police said that her mother Deanna Mertle (also known as Jeannie Mills) and stepfather Elmer J. Mertle (also known as Al Mills) were both found shot dead at their rural cottage, but did not believe the murders were related to the Peoples Temple cult despite their fear of retaliation after the 1978 Jonestown massacre.
