Love Has Won cult leader Amy Carlson has died of natural causes after years of alcohol abuse, opioid use, anorexia, and chronic ingestion of colloidal silver, a substance that, some believe may strengthen the body’s immune system, according to an autopsy report prepared by El Paso. County Coroner’s Office.
The report, which was finalized last month, found alcohol, narcotics, marijuana and elevated levels of silver in the 45-year-old man’s body. Carlson, who was 5 feet 4 inches tall, weighed 75 pounds when he died, according to the report.
The results of the autopsy were first reported by Guru Mag, an online publication that deals with cults, and were confirmed to the Denver Post by Rising Above Love Has Won, a group trying to save the group’s followers. .
The autopsy also revealed there was no sign of cancer, although Carlson’s supporters said she had it. Her supporters, who called Carlson “Mother God,” had also said she was paralyzed. Those following the cult said there was no sign that she was paralyzed, although the autopsy report did not address this condition.
Carlson’s body was discovered on April 28 at a house near Crestone in Saguache County after a member traveled to Salida to tell police there was a dead body in the house.
Saguache sheriff’s deputies found Carlson’s body in a green sleeping bag and encased in Christmas lights. She wore makeup, including multi-colored and glitter eye shadows. The body had a crown made of brown and golden pearls and blue and green stones, and there were several necklaces around its neck, according to the autopsy report. She also wore a dyed fleece shawl with bandanas and a faux fur scarf.
Following the discovery of Carlson’s body, seven people were charged with transporting his body to Colorado from California and allowing two children to stay in the house with the body. The Saguache County district attorney subsequently dismissed the charges.
Since the death, cult members have dispersed and renamed themselves 5D Full Disclosure.
The group that works to dispel the teachings of the cult and rescue adepts pointed to Friday’s autopsy report as proof that the cult’s teachings are false and that Mother God was not a mythical being sent to Earth for deliver people to another dimension.
“There was no magical, unexplained discovery when his body was examined,” the group’s Facebook page said. “Amy’s ‘3D medicine’ was just opioids, alcohol, THC, and colloidal silver. The easiest way to get donations is through manipulation and a victim mentality.
The cult promoted colloidal silver to its followers and sold bottles of it online. A former member’s family member told The Post in a previous interview that the group would melt various metals, such as lighter heads, into drinking potions.
At the scene where Carlson’s body was found, MPs confiscated eight vials containing drug droppers and colorful labels with names such as “Gaia’s colloidal iridium”, “colloidal titanium” and ” Gaia’s colloidal palladium ”, according to the autopsy report.
The Mayo Clinic website states that there is no scientific evidence that colloidal silver has healing properties.
The autopsy and toxicology report took months because Saguache County Coroner Tom Perrin said he needed help testing the body for heavy metals. The El Paso County Coroner performed the autopsy on behalf of Saguache County.
