A man had 78 wives. The list of his wives also included girls up to 12. Now a documentary is about to be released on Netflix about him. In which all his dark exploits will be revealed.
The name of this person is Warren Jeffs. Currently, 66-year-old Warren is serving a life sentence for child sexual assault. But there was a time when he had a different power. His followers considered him a ‘Prophet’ or messenger of God. Not only did he do dozens of marriages, but he had also exploited many girls.
According to the news published in ‘Daily Star’, the so-called religious preacher Warren Jeffs used to call himself a messenger of God. He had over 10,000 followers in the 90s. He used to run a separate sect of his own. About 500 children and women lived in his farmhouse. During this time, he married a 12-year-old girl. He called this marriage a ‘spiritual marriage’.
Dozens of girls were exploited.
Warren had exploited dozens of girls, not one or two. Young girls were also included in the list of his wives. According to several media reports, Warren had around 78 wives. Of these, 24 wives were done only at 17-18 years old.
However, his power could not last long, and after all the complaints, he came on the American investigative agency FBI radar. Later he was put on the list of most wanted. He was arrested in 2006, and a year later, all the children/women were freed after raiding her farmhouse.
Many people who came out of Warren’s place said there were no modern means of convenience. There was nothing TV, internet, music etc. There was an extraordinary atmosphere there. People were kept cut off from the outside world. Warren had control over everyone. Women were not allowed a lot of makeup.
Warren’s son Wendell Jeffson, born to a wife, said- ‘I grew up with mothers who were 15 years old. Warren married a girl up to 12, and I was told that the girl in the relationship was my mother.
