'HOMESTEAD HERITAGE' CHILD ABUSE ALLEGATIONS

Ex-members of the Homestead Heritage Church community talk about their horrible experiences growing up in this group, in Part Two of the WFAA ABC news report.

Veteran investigative journalist Brett Shipp says, in his entire career, he’s never had to work so hard to corroborate allegations of an important story:

“What started out at a lone complaint from a former member (who later decided it was too risky to continue providing me with information) evolved into a laborious quest to track down and authenticate allegations of abuse.” he says. “So many people who started to tell their stories backed out for fear of severing ties with family and friends within the compound … many took months to convince to talk … Some would only talk on background, others were able to provide me with compelling evidence but wished to remain anonymous. Only the extremely brave or determined dared speak out.”
