Warren Jeffs In Texas

March 9, 2006, 10:40 PM by Don Jorgensen

While South Dakota authorities keep a close eye on what's happening in Pringle, Texas authorities are already dealing with Warren Jeffs and his secret society.

Eldorado, Texas residents are on edge over Warren Jeffs and his followers who recently moved to the outskirts of town.

"We are afraid something might happen here," said unidentified old lady.

The gates to this 16 hundred acre compound are almost always locked. The elders rarely do interviews. The only way to see what's happening here is by air. Jeffs has spent hundreds of thousands of dollars constructing five buildings and a 4 story temple. Another building is under construction.

They first said they were building a hunting retreat, then the truth came.
It's a ranch for Jeffs' 200 most loyal followers, which seems odd to law enforcement, since Jeffs has preached-- the end of the world is near.

"They bought all this property, put all this time and effort in building the structures to kill themselves. It doesn't make any sense."

The sheriff confronted some of the elders about marrying and having sex with girls under 16.

"I said is that something that will be going on in this community? They did advise, we can't say that hasn't happened in the past because it has."

This woman escaped from the clan and now spends her time trying to rescue other young girls in the middle of the night.

 "It's the only chance they have to live," said unknown woman.

And now those same fears could be unfolding in South Dakota.
