Police in Cobbs County, Georgia have arrested a woman that have deemed a “former cult member” for the murder of a child in Florida. Police also believe she has abused many more children while running her alleged cult.
Anna Elizabeth Young, now 75, ran the House of Prayer for All People in Micanopy, Florida for ten years.
On Thursday, Young was arrested, according to the Cobb County Sheriff’s Office and indicted on a first-degree murder charge for the death of a toddler named Emon Harper in the late 1980s. According to the Gainesville Sun, Young allegedly tortured and starved the young boy to death.
Young has not yet entered a plea on the murder charge and it is unclear if she has a lawyer that can speak on her behalf. She’s currently awaiting extradition from Georgia to Florida.
In 2001, Young was convicted of child abuse after she bathed a 12-year-old girl
