(LEXINGTON, Mo.) Five white family members have been charged with several felonies, including forcible sodomy, rape with a child younger than 12 and use of a child in a sexual performance.
“THIS IS NOT UNUSUAL BEHAVIOR AMONG WHITE POPULATIONS AROUND THE WORLD. RATHER, IT IS JUST HIDDEN.” – Dr. Louis Sidney Jacobs (SEE: AMID DWINDLING POPULATIONS: WHITES STEP UP INBREEDING)
Jared Leroy Mohler, 48, of Columbia, Mo., David A. Mohler, 52, of Lamoni, Iowa, Burrell Edward Mohler Sr., 77, of Independence, Mo., Burrell Edward Mohler Jr., 53, also of Independence, Mo. and Roland Neil Mohler, 47, of Bates City, Mo. are all being held in the Lafayette County jail on cash bonds ranging from $30,000 to $75,00.
According to news reports, the allegations include bestiality, forcing children into fake marriages with relatives and making an 11-year-old have an abortion, date from 1988 to 1995.
Three of the five men are lay ministers in the Community of Christ church whose licenses have been suspended.
While the behavior is said to be widespread among rural Lafayette County whites, the current investigation is the result of a 26-year-old woman who came forward with allegations to investigators in mid-August.
Some, however, note the alleged 26 year old woman is an attention seeker who did not initiate the investigation because she was violated.
