Another shocking tale of murder and betrayal by the leader of a FLDS cult. Many of you no doubt have heard of this evil. I watched the story on Investigation Discovery this morning.
Subject to TSCC doctrine of blood atonement, LeBaron (self-declared prophet and leader of his sect,) had his opponents murdered. That included anyone who questioned him or stood in his way as the leader of his cult. Including his own brother who challenged his authority. And then one of his daughters who no longer wished to be associated with his church.
From prison he wrote a manuscript like a doctrine which he had smuggled out of jail by one of his future victims, his son-in-law Duane Chynoweth. LeBaron died of cardiac arrest in prison in 1981. It was 1988 that Chynoweth, his brother Mark, another friend of theirs Eddie Marston (a former thug and stepson of LeBaron's,), and an eight year old little girl Jennifer (Duane's daughter,) were gunned down per instructions Irvil had written out years before, while doing business in their Houston neighborhoods. All were executed at 4:00 in different locations, by three killers on the same date. It was the same date and time Joseph Smith was assassinated 144 years prior (planned that way.)
There were 25 executions of people who Ervil had murdered during his incarceration from prison. One of his daughters, Lillian, was married to Duane Chnyoweth. After her husband's death, she would later take her own life because she didn't know how to cope living without him. It was their eight year old daughter who was murdered with her dad the day he was gunned down, running errands together. Their murderer? An uncle of the little girl's.
These people were so brainwashed that's all they knew how to be. Duane was a part of the inner clan until he had an awakening to break free.
A tragic tale of power, greed, and murder - even his own family was not off limits to Ervil LeBaron. A horrific example of a human wrecking ball.
