Polygamist cult leader finally captured after 15 years on the lam
NEW YORK POST – TAMAR LAPIN
A cult leader and polygamist who spent 15 years on the lam to avoid sex crime charges was finally detained in Mexico on suspicion of killing two men and a boy.
Orson William Black Jr., 56, was arrested Sunday along with four of his wives, a woman described as a “concubine” and 20 other people.
Prosecutors are investigating whether he was involved in the deaths of the victims, ages 15, 19 and 23, whose bodies were found at a ranch in September.
The victims, who are thought to have been members of Black’s religious group, may all share his last name, prosecutors in Chihuahua said.
