Cult Leader Pleads Guilty To Killing 4-Year-Old Boy He Thought Was Gay

On Monday, Peter Moses, the head of a polygamous cult in Durham, NC, pleaded guilty to the murder of a 4-year-old boy he believed was gay.

Moses reportedly feared that Jadon Higganbothan (right) might be homosexual because the little boy’s father had left his mother, who was part of Moses’ “harem.”  The unstable cult leader had also apparently witnessed Higganbothan hit another boy’s backside.

According to the New York Daily News, Moses (left) took Jadon into the garage, cranked up some music and shot him in the head.  The boy’s body was stashed in a suitcase in the attic “until it started to smell.”

Moses, whose followers called Lord, also pleaded guilty to the shooting death of ex-girlfriend Yvonne McKoy, who tried to escape. He’s avoided the death penalty, though, in return for testifying against the six co-defendants in the case.

Instead, he’s up for two consecutive life sentences without possibility of parole for his part in the gruesome deaths.

After she left the compound to call her mother, [McKoy] was dragged back by Moses’ other “wives,” mercilessly beaten and nearly strangled with an electrical cord.

A witness told authorities that the other women in the house, led by Jadon’s mother, Vania Sisk, insisted McKoy had to be killed. They took her into a bathroom, turned on the same music and shot her.

Moses then showed off her body at a party, before the remains were tossed in a trash bin.

Higganbothan and McKoy had been missing since the fall of 2010. Their bodies were eventually discovered by a plumber working in the backyard of Moses’ mother’s house.
