Lucas Leonard was murdered by his family and fellow Word of Life Christian Church members on Monday, October 12th, 2015. The brutality of the abuse and beating Lucas and his brother Christopher received during a “counseling session” shocked the nation and exposed WLCC as a religious extremist cult.

In this episode Jon describes the mutilation Lucas and his brother received from his own family, the inner workings of a Christian cult ran by Tiffanie Irwin, and the shear horror that other members were subjected to inside the church walls.
