Polygamy cult known for ritualized child rape believed to have bought property, begun construction of underground compound in Northern Minnesota. Polygamist and convicted felon Seth Jeffs, brother of convicted pedophile Warren Jeffs who's serving life plus 20 for child sexual assault, has permit to build 6,000-sq ft compound. Construction equipment has arrived.
SETH STEED JEFFS is “a known polygamist, a convicted felon and a member of the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints (FLDS).”
One of Seth's brothers is Warren Jeffs, the convicted pedophile and former FLDS boss who is in prison.
Seth Jeffs is currently being sued over claims he participated in that same ritual sex abuse orchestrated by Warren Jeffs in the FLDS. Seth is reported to be in hiding from the child rape lawsuit, and has faced related legal troubles around a food stamp abuse scheme the authorities say funded the FLDS.
In 2011 Warren was convicted of two felony counts of child sexual assault,for which he is currently serving a sentence of life plus 20 years.
Media attention faded after Warren went to prison. The people who still live in the communities along the Utah-Arizona where men like Warren and Seth were once kings are still trying to recover. The former FLDS buildings in the Utah towns of Hildale and Colorado City no longer host FLDS worship services.
But the FLDS didn't stop. And Seth Jeffs didn't stop.
Seth is believed to have first moved to South Dakota and founded a new FLDS community there. Read the rest
