Spiritual leader’s mummified remains found in Colorado…


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, Saguache county, on Wednesday, 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 was selling as a cure for COVID-19.

Ryan Kramer, John Robertson, Jason Castillo, Obdulia Franco Gonzalez, Karin Raymond, Christopher Royer, and Sarah Raymone were taken into custody on charges including abuse of a corpse and child abuse after law enforcement made the grim discovery.

Saguache County Sheriff Office’s deputies found the corpse in the New Age cult’s headquarters just before midnight on Wednesday following a tip off from a man thought to be a follower. 

Miguel Lamboy, who has not been charged, told investigators he had taken in a group of people who needed a place to stay, and he found the body in a back bedroom when he returned home Wednesday following a trip to Denver.  

Lamboy told investigators ‘it was obvious that Ms. Carlson was dead because her eyes were missing’, her body was mummified and her ‘teeth [were] exposed through the lips,’ the arrest warrant states.   

He also said he believed the group had transported Carlson’s body to the property from California. 

He said he knew the woman as Lia Carlson, and a Saguache County sheriff’s corporal wrote in the affidavits that Carlson is believed to be the leader of the group. 

It’s unclear why the follower provided the name Lia but former followers have said Carlson went by several different names.   

‘The mummified remains appeared to be set up in some type of shrine’ and ‘have what appears to be glitter type makeup on around the eyes,’ according to the affidavits. 

Saguache County Sheriff Dan Warwick told the Daily Beast Carlson’s body appeared to have been ‘cared for’ and said the eyes were missing due to decomposition.

‘LOVE HAS WON’ CULT: 

Love Has Won was set up in Colorado in 2018 under the belief that Carlson was a divine being who had been trying to save humanity for 19 billion years. 

The cult believed she would one day lead 144,000 chosen people into a new mystical fifth dimension.

They believed she communicated with angels and 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.     

Former cult members accused Carlson of brainwashing and abusing them, and forcing them to wait on her hand and foot while living with her in the cult HQ.  

Investigators searched an SUV on the property and said the back seat was laid down in a position ‘consistent with someone transporting the mummified remains.’ 

Two children – a 13-year-old girl and a 2-year-old boy – were also found asleep in the home at the time.  

The teen has since been placed with social services while the toddler belongs to Lamboy, the Beast reported.  

Due to the extent of decomposition, the body is yet to be formally identified, reported the Daily Beast. 

The Saguache County coroner’s office is using dental records to try to confirm an ID.

Saguache County Coroner Tom Perrin told the outlet he estimates Carlson died sometime back in March.  

Foul play has not yet been ruled out but Perrin said he suspects Carlson was ingesting colloidal silver.  

Carlson’s son, Cole, told The Daily Beast his mother had been ‘taking huge amounts of colloidal silver.’   

She had told him the cult was selling the silver as a cure for COVID-19 under a business calked Gaia’s Whole Healing Essentials, LLC. 

The Food and Drug Administration sent the company a warning letter on April 1 2020 for selling ‘Unapproved and Misbranded Products Related to Coronavirus Disease 2019’.

The letter shows the company was registered under Mr. Michael Lamboy.

Lamboy and Carlson may have been in a relationship, former cult member Andrew Profaci told the Daily Beast.

Cole told the Daily Beast he was not surprised to learn of his mother’s death.

They last spoke on an unknown date over Skype where she had told him she had cancer and was eating one grilled cheese a day, he said.

Cole said he hoped her death would signal the end for the cult. 

‘It’s not a great thing, but hopefully this brings an end to the Love Has Won debacle. I hope the damage stops now,’ he said.

Carlson’s sister Chelsea Renninger slammed the cult for not helping her as she was dying. 

‘My problem is that the cult didn’t get her help. They let her die,’ she said. 

Kramer, Robertson, Castillo, Gonzalez, Royer and Raymone are being held on two counts of child abuse and one count of tampering with a dead body. 

Raymond is being held on two counts of child abuse, one count of tampering with a deceased human body, and one count of false imprisonment.  

No charges have been brought over Carlson’s death. 

The seven arrested will appear in Saguache County court Wednesday. 

According to the affidavits, the sheriff’s office has received ‘many complaints’ from families across the country saying ‘Love Has Won’ is brainwashing people and stealing their money. 

Carlson led her followers to believe she was a divine being who had been trying to save humanity for 19 billion years.
