started looking at the community – they searched and interrogated the husband
of the victim, the sect’s pastor, the victim’s 26-year old nanny, and even the
leader of the sect who is known as the Bride of the Christ.
The case ended up gaining
international notoriety, because the nanny ended up confessing the crime within
days, claiming that she committed the crime by the will of God and that she had
