Trio Accused of Torturing Boy Charged With Multiple Felonies
Got a problem with your child? Bring him to these “Sadists for Jesus” where they force kids to dig their own graves and instruct them in using pliers as nipple clamps.
The defendants were arrested Friday following an investigation by Corona police. The boys 30-year-old mother told investigators that she took her son to the Heart of Worship group home in the 700 block of West 10th Street on March 18 seeking guidance, according to investigators.
“She (the mother) came to the group home … trying to straighten out her son, I guess, who was accused of molesting another kid,” Corona police Sgt. Scott Currie said.
Remmers is the director of the home, which provides counseling and other services.
“Our mission at the Heart of Worship is to raise the church body to be true disciples of Christ, meaning that if Christ would not think it, say it, or do it, neither will we,” the church says on its website.
Detectives allege that, at Remmers’ request, Craig and Jeter — both residents of the home — drove the boy to Barstow to “scare” him.
“Once there, the two men forced the boy to dig his own grave with a shovel and get inside while threatening to kill him,” said District Attorney’s Office spokesman John Hall. “The men threw dirt on him and beat him with a belt to keep him in when he tried to climb out.”
The boy was later taken to Remmers’ residence and was assaulted by the pastor, who allegedly used a pair of pliers to clamp the youth’s nipples “while the victim cried and screamed for him to stop,” Hall said, adding that the victim was also zip-tied to a chair and pepper-sprayed in the face.
