Summary: ” While Brower said he believes Lyle Jeffs’ arrest might currently turn the fallen bishop into a martyr in the eyes of the FLDS followers, care for his brother Warren, he’ll face trial, and may never get out of jail. Brenda Nicholson, who was forced out of the sect five years ago, says Jeffs “thought he was a god, and ate steak and scallops” while all his people could might possibly afford were homemade bread and dry beans from their gardens. Whether his absence is based upon absconding, as oft alleged by the Government in their filings or, whether he was taken and secreted against his will, or whether he gone through the miracle of rapture is unknown to counsel.” “Warren is still running the FLDS show from prison and he’s the one who told Lyle to jump bail,” says Sam Brower, a private detective and author of Prophet’s Prey, a book about his investigations into the FLDS. Although he was arrested in South Dakota, just where numerous of the FLDS have scattered in the last few in number years, his Ford F-150 had Utah plates, and his Utah driver’s licence was up to date. In March 2012, Lyle Jeffs told Nicholson, and her husband they were unworthy and threw them out of the sect. They’re still waiting, for Warren to be free, and allow them to have families.” The fugitive foregoing cult leader was arrested Wednesday night, a down and out guy living out of his truck accordingly desperate for money he risked coming out of hiding to sell his Leatherman pliers to a pawn shop for $37. I was in a meeting just where he announced that unworthy parents could might possibly no longer keep their worthy children.” Jeffs wanted to split up the Nicholsons’ six children but the couple managed to escape with all of them, and currently live life on the outside, Nicholson said. “I remembered him because he looked disheveled, and acted a little strange.” Jeffs was, accordingly fidgety, Haug figured he was “on something.” After Haug tipped off of the FBI, authorities found the 57-year-old foregoing bishop of the polygamous Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints living out of his truck, alone, his eight spiritual wives and 60 children taken from him by his big brother, Warren.”
