    I may be right there with you. I fear this is going to be so horrific. As "travelers", I wonder if there were other deaths in other areas. I am hoping for justice of these two girls.

    I take it that Ashford Archer is the man originally called Nathan Yah then Nathanyah Nitchitu.

    All records are sealed and LE is not releasing any more info right now.

    The following comes from an article in People magazine so take it with a grain of salt. However, a lot of the info comes from Frederick Blair's stepfather. The implication is that the 2 girls were starved.

    http://people.com/crime/was-religious-ritual-involved-colorado-death-two-girls-decomposing-car/

    Much more at the link. The article also says Blair's father drove from Texas to see what was going on. I believe he was the reporting person in the San Miguel County public files that I posted earlier. The county doesn't archive the police reports they just overwrite them using the same file name so the original report is not longer available.

    If even half of this is true then it explains the sheriff saying "I have never seen anything as cruel and heartless as this."

    If true, starvation is a very cruel and painful death. :(

    This is something straight out of a Stephen King novel. How do people get so twisted?

    http://www.thedenverchannel.com/new...norwood-farm-idd-as-one-of-suspects-daughters

    "NORWOOD, Colo. – The two young girls whose bodies were found on a farm outside Norwood were the daughters of Nashika Leonie Bramble, 36, one of five suspects in the case."

    Snip

    "The San Miguel County Coroner’s Office, with the assistance of the Colorado Bureau of Investigation, released their identities Friday after extensive DNA testing."

    COD pending. Next hearing November 20 and 21. The judge approved a request from msm to unseal the arrest affidavits so keep an eye out. Stupid, senseless murders.

    If you Google the two women you'll find quite a bit of information. I also found a Madani Ceus in the Wayne County PA property tax online public information site but I won't link since I can't verify it's the same woman.

    RIP Makayla and Hannah :rose:

    Affidavit was unsealed by Judge Keri Yoder during a hearing on Thursday following a joint request by the Daily Planet and KOTO Community Radio.

    http://www.telluridenews.com/news/article—af4ceadc-b84a-11e7-9fe0-a778787c5a89.html

    Much more at the link. Apparently Madani Ceus was the so-called spiritual leader and had convinced property owner Fredrick Blair that she could "shatter his spirit" with magic. Blair told his father about the girls' deaths and the father called authorities. Blair said he was afraid of Ceus.

    Ceus prepared all the food, including the girls' while they were in the car. Food ran low and Ceus said she and Bramble went to a local food pantry for supplies to provide for Bramble and the girls. Um, okay..

    It's just :nuts:

    The COD of the girls remain undetermined and their bodies have been sent to a medical examiner in New Mexico in hopes of learning more.

    Ashford Nathaniel Archer, 50, of Haiti; and Ika Eden, 53, of Jamaica were in court yesterday for a preliminary hearing. Both are charged with two felony counts of child abuse resulting in death. Archer is also charged with being an accessory to a crime. The preliminary hearing for Frederick Blair, Madani Ceus and Nashika Leonie Bramble (the girls' mother) will be held on Jan. 17 at 9 a.m.

    You can't make this stuff up:

    The hearing continues today.

    Updated to include Tuesday's hearing. The ME described the group as a Santeria cult but their actions don't match up with my understanding of Santeria after living in Miami for many years. Some highlights:

    http://www.telluridenews.com/news/article_22c36c84-ce5d-11e7-b8f1-63ef4700659e.html

    Arraignments for Archer and Eden are set for February 22. Eden's attorney is asking for charges to be dismissed and Archer's attorney wants his charges reduced to one count of criminal negligence.

    The preliminary hearing for Blair, Ceus and Bramble will be held on Jan. 17 and 18.

    Long article with some additional information. I can't put it all here due to copyright rules but if you're following this case it's a must read article.

    Arraignment for Eden and Archer is set for Feb. 22. A preliminary hearing for Blair, Ceus and Bramble is set for Jan. 17-18 at 9 a.m.

    http://www.telluridenews.com/the_watch/news/article_70517550-e063-11e7-b1b2-cf6aaaaff074.html

    These people are off the wall with their actions and beliefs. Weird thing is that at least Nashika Bramble, the mother of both girls, appears to have led a relatively normal life until hooking up with Eden in 2015. When Bramble lived in Lawrenceville, Georgia she placed an online ad offering child care.

    just sharing an article....

    Left to die: Cult queen's failed prophecy leads to death of two young girls
    https://www.gjsentinel.com/news/wes...cle_40e9eefc-04ba-11e8-8d0b-10604b9f1ff4.html

    When San Miguel County sheriff's deputies were summoned to a farm outside Norwood on Sept. 8, 2017, for a report of two bodies, they didn't know exactly what they were walking into.
    [.....]
    On Covault's most recent visit, just weeks earlier, however, he had gotten an uneasy feeling from Blair's visitors, who dressed in robes and refused to speak to him.
    [.....]
    "After Cory left, Ms. Ceus engaged in a reign of terror," Palefsky said. "She threatened to have people's souls 'harvested' by 'reapers.' They would be sent to the 'purge.' They would become 'abominations' or 'sent to abomination.' … She decided more importantly who could live and die."
    [.....]
    Masters testified that Blair said Ceus informed the group that 10-year-old Makayla was a danger to their spiritual well-being, and had been a "harlot" in her past life.
    [.....]
    Ceus and Bramble have been charged with first-degree murder, and the others with child abuse resulting in death. Seventh Judicial District Judge Keri Yoder found probable cause to bind over all five defendants for trial.
