Seven cult members have been arrested after the mummified corpse of their leader was found in a shrine in Colorado wrapped up in Christmas lights and missing its eyes with ‘glitter-type’ make up painted on.
Amy Carlson, 45, who was known as ‘Mother God’ to the followers of the ‘spiritual’ group Love Has Won, was found dead in a mobile home in the tiny, rural town of Moffat, in Saguache County, according to arrest affidavits.
Her body was found wrapped in a sleeping bag and decorated with Christmas lights in a room adorned with murals on the walls.
The cause and manner of death are yet to be confirmed but investigators believe Carlson died sometime in March after ingesting colloidal silver, which the cult had been selling as a ‘cure’ for COVID-19 – drawing a warning from US regulators.
Carlson’s followers believed she was a divine being who had been trying to save humanity for 19 billion years and would one day lead exactly 144,000 chosen people into a new fifth dimension.
The members of the cult, which was founded in 2018, also believed Donald Trump was Carlson’s father in a past life.
Carlson allegedly set up the cult, which authorities estimate had around 20 full-time followers, in 2018 after leaving her third marriage and job at McDonald’s.
Saguache County Sheriff Office’s deputies found the corpse in the New Age cult’s headquarters just before midnight on last Wednesday following a tipoff from a man thought to be a follower.
The cult has not publicly announced the death of its leader.
However, one female follower posted a Facebook Live video on the group’s social media page saying she had ‘ascended.’
The cult believed Mother God would one day lead 144,000 chosen people into a new mystical fifth dimension.
They believed she communicated with angels and that she was leading them to a great awakening.
One of the cult’s other bizarre beliefs was that Donald Trump was the cult leader’s loving father in a past life.
Another is that she speaks to the late actor Robin Williams and can rid people of cancer by talking to them on the phone.
