Cult member returns to Strong City compound
That is according to the cult’s website.
A little over a week ago, authorities took Esther off the property to try and get her to eat.
Just hours before her removal, she talked to Eyewitness News 4’s Jeremy Jojola and said she hadn’t eaten since Dec. 30.
Esther wrote out a signed statement refusing medical care, saying “I don’t want to be resuscitated unless Wayne Bent is released.”
“I’ll stand like a rock,” she said.Â “I’m not giving in.”
“I love Michael [Bent] with all my heart, and he means more to me than the world will ever know, and he’s just precious to me, and I’m not going to live with his suffering.”
“I want people to just leave me alone,” she said.Â “Let me do what my religious beliefs are.”
