News Conference Could Change Polygamous Community

(KSL News) A news conference slated for later today could change the polygamous town of Colorado City forever.

One of the town’s residents promises to spill the beans about the polygamous church and blow things wide open.

He says he was forced out of the church just before the upheaval two weeks ago when leader Warren Jeffs forced out 21 longtime members.

Police are worried the division will spark violence.


So far the town is quiet, but some believe today’s developments will create a third faction, adding to two others created in the ’80s.

Meanwhile, a lot of the focus is on the community’s leader, Warren Jeffs, who lives in a compound.

Rumors are that Jeffs is getting ready to move to Mexico. And many believe the community will move with him if he tells members to.
