Quote:A Person on Reddit Claims They Met the Guy Who Sold Nike Sneakers to the Heaven's Gate Cult

How's this for a Throwback Thursday story? A Reddit user recently shared a story about meeting the Nike employee who sold around 40 pairs of sneakers to the leader of the infamous Heaven's Gate cult, and it's every bit as crazy as you'd expect.

Quote:You know the beginning, he sells the cult leader the shoes. He shows him the black Nike Cortez and the guy has an organized list of sizes he needs, etc... Nike dude asks him, "Oh, is this for a basketball team or something?" Cult guy's actual reply, "Something... like that." They have all the shoes there but one last size, and he calls another store and finds them for him because he's so such a great employee, and even delivers them to his address. Cut to the next day and he sees the news and he sees that the address is the exact same address he delivered the shoes to.
Over the next however many months Nike dude obviously goes through a dark time and struggles with questions like- What should I have done? Should I have known? Should I have said something or asked more questions? Etc.... Through the chaos of all of this and the court stuff he actually comes into contact with 2 other people in similar situations:
