A horrible story emerges today out of North Carolina.
Religious cult leader Peter Lucas Moses, 27, faces first-degree murder charges in the deaths of Jadon Higganbothan, 4, and Antoinetta Yvonne McKoy, 28. Prosecutors said Moses killed Jadon because he thought the child was gay and McKoy after he learned she couldn’t have children and wanted to leave the group.
Moses feared that Jadon might be gay because his father had left Sisk, and Moses told her to “get rid” of the child, prosecutors said. “In the religious belief of that organization, homosexuality was frowned on,”
Sometime in October 2010, Smith told Moses that Jadon had hit another child’s bottom, and Moses became angry and started walking around the house with a gun that belonged to Sisk, prosecutors said.
“He starts screaming, ‘I told you to get rid of him!'” and told Sisk, “‘How am I going to do this?'” Cline recalled the witness’ account.
Moses ordered two of the women to set up computers and speakers in the garage, prosecutors said they were told by the witness. They said he started playing music with the Lord’s Prayer in Hebrew, took Jadon in the garage and shut the door, and the women then heard a gunshot.
Prosecutors said the witness told them that the women helped clean up the body of Jadon, who had been shot in the head, and put it in a suitcase in Moses’ master suite. He later told them to get the body out because it was beginning to smell, prosecutors said.
So horrible, evil and so tragic. I am at a loss for words.
