Enforcer for jailed evangelist on the run
In early 2008, a 14-year-old follower of Tony Alamo‘s stated that if he were Harry Potter, he would cast a spell on Alamo. When word got back to Alamo about what was said, he sent John Erwin Kolbeck, also known as The Enforcer, to teach the child a lesson.KFSM, Arkanas report
Kolbeck took his two sons to a factory in Fort Smith where the child worked scratching expiration dates off of canned foods. Then he severely beat the child with a board nearly 40 times, until the board broke.
The television show America’s Most Wanted is in Fort Smith, Arkansas to take the story to a national level in hopes of finding John Erwin Kolbeck.
Alamo is awaiting sentencing after a jury found him guilty of taking girls as young as 9 across state lines for sex.
A judge recently ruled that a civil suit against Tony Alamo over beatings can continue.
