Florida Cult Leader Charged With Murder Of Toddler, Many Other Children May Have Been Tortured

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.

3 Michigan Children Still Missing 7 Years After Their Dad ‘Gave Them To A Group’

Three brothers have been missing from the town of Morenci, Michigan since 2010. Andrew, Alexander and Tanner Skelton vanished from their home seven years ago, the day after Thanksgiving, according to Click On Detroit. Andrew was 9 years old, Alexander was 7 and Tanner was 5 at the time of their disappearance. The National Center for Missing Children has created age-progressed photos of what the brothers could possibly look like now.

The boys’ mother, Tanya Skelton, told Morenci police that her husband John Skelton had the children last. He was supposed to bring the boys back home to her. John’s original story was that he gave his three sons to “a group.” No group has ever come forward. It is unclear what kind of group he meant. Since then, his story has allegedly changed. John is currently in prison, serving 10 to 15 years, on an unlawful imprisonment charge, according

Roy Moore Was Banned From Mall For Soliciting Children Long Before Scandal Became Public

After the Washington Post broke a story on the alleged sexual misconduct of far-right Alabama politician Roy Moore, many locals began looking back at incriminating incidents that support the stories of the victims who claim that he courted them when they were children. Now, as a fifth accuser comes forward with even more allegations against Moore, Alabamans recall that Moore had allegedly been banned from The Gadsden Mall for attempting to solicit sex from teenagers.

Yesterday, a fifth accuser said that Moore had acted sexually inappropriate with her. According to the New York Times, Beverly Young Nelson discussed Moore’s attack on her at a press conference. She also detailed the ways he used his position as a prosecutor in Etowah County to intimidate her into silence.

“I tried fighting him off, while yelling at him to stop, but instead of stopping, he began squeezing my neck, attempting to force my

A brave mother of four died while shielding her children from bullets during Sunday’s massacre at the First Baptist Church in Sutherland Springs, Texas.

Man Allegedly Kept Daughter As Sex Slave For More Than 20 Years And Fathered 8 Children

An Argentinian man has been accused of fathering eight children with his own daughter, whom he kept as a sex slave for more than two decades. Domingo Bulacio, 56, allegedly began raping his daughter when she was just 15 years old, the New York Post reports.

According to the New York Post, the disturbing family secret came out after the victim told a doctor while he was treating her son. Bulacio was arrested in 2016 after being on the run from the cops for 45 days. He was found hiding out as a fugitive at a relative’s home.

DNA evidence, which proved Bulacio fathered all eight of his daughter’s children, was presented in court. Six of those kids are now living at a boarding school, local media reported.

What happened to the victim’s mother remains a mystery. According to one account from El Liberal reported by the UK’s Mirror, Bulacio threw

Pastor Arrested On Charges Of Molesting Children Under Age 7 By Luring Them To His Office With Candy

An elderly Indiana pastor was arrested on charges that he sexually assaulted young children at his church, the Rushville Baptist Temple, Fox59 reported

The investigation into Garry Evans, 72, began in early September after a 3-year-old girl allegedly told her mother that the pastor had made her touch his penis, according to court documents. It is not clear if Evans has entered a plea at this time. 

After the mother reported the incident to authorities, police interviewed the girl, who told them that Evans had brought her into his office under the pretense of giving her candy.

Once they were behind closed doors, the girl said, Evans pulled down his pants, made the girl touch his penis, and then asked her not to tell anyone about what had occurred. 

Officers searched the church on Sept. 22. As rumors of the incident spread, other parents began asking their daughters if Evans had touched them,

74 Children Are Missing From Kansas’ Foster Care System

Over 70 children are missing from Kansas’ foster care system. This shocking number was revealed by two companies running the state’s foster care system at a child welfare task force meeting on Tuesday.

Phyllis Gilmore, secretary of the Kansas Department for Children and Families, was allegedly unaware of at least some of the missing children. According to the Kansas City Star, several lawmakers were furious that Gilmore seemed unaware that three sisters, ages 15, 14 and 12, have been missing since August. Emily, Aimee and Christin Utter (pictured above) have been missing for 47 days. Lt. Jarrod Gill with the Tonganoxie Police Department told the Kansas City Star that the three sisters likely ran away after experiencing problems in their home. He thinks they are probably together, and receiving assistance from at least one other person.

“I am flabbergasted,” Sen. Laura Kelly said.  “I used to work in this world

Young Mom Caught Filming Herself Have Sex With Children And Selling The Videos Online

A young mother was arrested in Arizona after her friend discovered she had allegedly molested two children and sold the videos over the internet, Fox 10 Phoenix reports.

Keri Harwood, 28, allegedly molested the two children multiple times in the bathroom of her home. Her friend discovered the videos after Harwood gave her friend access to her Pokémon Go account login information.

Because the Pokémon Go account was attached to Harwood’s Gmail account, her friend was able to see her emails. 

In these emails, she was allegedly able to see two videos showing the children being sexually abused. She also saw PayPal transactions ranging from $50 to $115, apparently for access to these videos.

Police claim that Harwood told them that she had masturbated over video for a man she met online, in exchange for money. She received between $500 and $600 from this man over several months, police claim.
