FLDS faithful may be moving here
Published: Thursday, December 13th, 2012
According to a Dec. 4 article by Matthew DeLuca in Newsweek/The Daily Beast, members of the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints (FLDS) may be making their way to the Custer County compound.
As Texas moves to seize the FLDS Yearning for Zion (YFZ) Ranch near Eldorado, Texas, FLDS members may look for a safe haven here.
Kathy Mankin, co-owner of The Eldorado Success with her husband, Randy, said the FLDS businesses there and in San Angelo, Texas, have moved away. “They are gone,” she said. No one knows for sure where they went.
According to DeLuca, Isaac Wyler, a former FLDS member who lives in Colorado City, Ariz., said he had heard that a lot of FLDS members, especially the workers, have moved to the Custer County property. This property contains six residential structures with a total of 61 bedrooms.
Sam Brower, private investigator and author of “Prophets Prey,” said, in DeLuca’s article, “We only know this heavy equipment has left Texas and there is a lot of heavy equipment now in South Dakota.”
