FLDS Buildings Disappear in Arizona and Utah

(Jun 2, 2005) –KINGMAN, Ariz. (AP) — The special investigator assigned to Colorado City by Mohave County said two buildings disappeared over the weekend. One was in Colorado City and the other in neighboring Hildale, Utah.

Investigator Gary Engels said the buildings were dismantled and hauled away after a Utah judge last Friday ordered a freezing of a polygamous sect’s trust that controls most of the property and assets in the border communities.

Engels suspects the dismantling flies in the face of the court order.

He said some of the activity is captured on videotape and he has relayed the information to the Arizona and Utah attorneys general.

Rodney Parker of Salt Lake City, attorney for the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, said Wednesday night that he had not heard of the buildings being destroyed and could not comment.
