3 of the 5 Mohler men are lay ministers with the Mormon offshoot cult, The Community of Christ (formerly the Reorganized Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints).
The suspects were identified as
- Burrell Edward Mohler Sr., (77) and his sons
- Burrell Edward Mohler Jr., (53)
- Jared Leroy Mohler, (48)
- Roland Neil Mohler, (47)
- David A. Mohler, (52).
They are accused of sexual abuse of children. The crimes are hard to stomach.
The five are charged with several felonies, including forcible sodomy, rape with a child younger than 12 and use of a child in a sexual performance. The allegations, which include bestiality, forcing children into fake marriages with relatives and making an 11-year-old have an abortion, date from 1988 to 1995.
It looks like they are also being investigated for murder. I am sure to have much more to report on these nutballs. When you mix cults, sexual abuse, violence and multiple victims together in one case, the stories will be epic.
