7 Arrested After Mummified Body Found in Moffat

Authorities have arrested seven people and charged them with abuse of a corpse after the mummified body of the leader of the spiritual group “Love Has Won” was found wrapped in a sleeping bag and decorated with Christmas lights in a southern Colorado home.   

Amy Carlson, who was also known as “Mother God” by her followers, was found dead in a home in Moffat.   

A follower told investigators he had taken in a group of people he believes transported the body from California.   

Investigators say the remains appear to have been set up as a shrine.   

The cause and manner of death have not been released.   

9News reports two children, a 13-year-old girl and a two-year-old boy, were at the home at the time the body was found.  The seven people arrested also face child abuse charges.
