Another Christian kidnapping; Hey folks, adults who have imaginary friend(s)/god(s); they are insane in the brain; Keep children away from them at all costs!
The pastor of a small Corona church and two of his followers are in jail on suspicion of kidnapping, torture and child abuse, among other allegations, in what police say was a “terrible and tragic” way to discipline a 13-year-old boy.
Over the course of several days, the Corona teen was forced to dig a grave, beaten with a shovel, tied up, pepper-sprayed and pinched with pliers, said Corona police Capt. Jerry Rodriguez.
The youngster’s ordeal began March 18 when his mother brought him to a group home in the 700 block of West 10th Street operated by the Heart of Worship Community Church in Corona and asked for guidance on how the boy should be disciplined.
Pastor Lonny Lee Remmers, 54, is accused of directing two men, Nicholas Craig, who is in his 20s, and Darryll Duane Jeter Jr., 28, to scare the boy, police said.
Craig and Jeter drove the boy from the group home 100 miles to the Barstow area, where the teen was forced to dig a grave, threatened with death, beaten with a shovel and half-buried, Rodriguez said in a telephone interview.
When the boy was brought back to Corona, the torture continued, police said.
At one point, he was brought to the pastor’s home on Sloan Drive for Bible study, where, police said, he was tortured by the pastor with a pair of pliers.
