The Hildale, Utah compound built for jailed FLDS Church pedophile polygamist prophet Warren Jeffs and now owned by his former bodyguard has just opened as a hotel, called America's Most Wanted Suites and Bed & Breakfast. From NBC News:
(Willie) Jessop, who once served as a spokesman for the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints (FLDS), said he refused to defend his former boss when he found out what Jeffs had done and was excommunicated.
