Description

What began with the video diary of Ricky Rodriguez, a former child member of the religious sect "Children of God," led to an in-depth investigation into the group's history of sexual abuse of its child members. Rodriguez, the son of the group's religious leader was so distraught over the abuse that he murdered the woman he claimed had sexually abused him as a child before killing himself. Though the organization officially claims that its practice of having sex with children ended in 1986, this investigation documents the group's attempts to quiet their disturbing past.
