Nationwide Manhunt: Cult leader kept child brides as young as 11-years-old as sex slaves: A former minister from Minnesota wanted on child-molestation charges reportedly was spotted in August 2014 in Washington state.
Victor Arden Barnard, 52, was charged in April in Pine County (Minn.) District Court with 59 counts of criminal sexual conduct. Barnard, who led a cult-like religious sect, is accused of abusing numerous girls and young women who lived apart from their families at the congregation’s compound in northern Pine County.
According to a news release from the Washington State Patrol, a witness reported seeing Barnard leaving a McDonald’s restaurant Wednesday in Raymond, in western Washington, heading toward the city of Aberdeen.
The patrol said that Barnard was believed to be driving a dark blue, two-door Audi with tinted windows and a spoiler and that he had a female passenger. Additional information placed Barnard in the Raymond and Aberdeen areas for about the previous week, the patrol said.
