Colorado authorities said that the body of “Love Has Won” leader was mummified and beyond recognition when discovered inside a trailer home Wednesday.
Amy Carlson, 45, is believed to have died last March and left to decay at a “shrine” property with no eyes, police said adding that her body was “mummified” in a sleeping bag and ornate with Christmas lights.
Carlson’s son Cole told detectives that his mom had been touting colloidal silver as a cure for Covid-19 and had been drinking a lot of it which ultimately caused her death.
“It’s not a great thing, but hopefully this brings an end to the Love Has Won debacle. I hope the damage stops now,” he said.
Seven sect members were arrested on multiple charges including abuse of a corpse and child abuse.
Police said that the cult has drawn numerous complaints since it was founded in 2018 particularly over brainwashing vulnerable people and selling fake “spiritual healing products.”
