Deliver Us From Ervil

Description

In the 1940s, Mormon fundamentalists started a town in the Mexican desert. Their utopian vision quickly soured when the founding family’s son, Ervil LeBaron, unleashed a multi-generational crimewave. Involved in bank robbery, drug smuggling, auto theft rings and multiple murders, a deadly cult evolved into a sophisticated organised crime family whose notoriety and violence only grew as the decades passed. Journalist Jesse Hyde uncovers previously unheard recordings and speaks to former cult members and survivors, as well as the reporters and cops on the case, to understand the man at the heart of it all.
