Sex in religious cult leads to murder

Woman was murdered to cover sexual assaults, authorities allege

<skip>

Now prosecutors say the 27-year-old woman was murdered to keep her from revealing a history of sexual assaults on her by several people living under one Grandview roof.

Moore and several witnesses whose names were redacted from court documents told investigators that they had been roommates with Bethany Deaton and her husband, Tyler Deaton, in the 7300 block of East 122nd Street. They described a household where Tyler Deaton served as the “spiritual leader” of a “community.”

One witness said he believed Tyler Deaton was attempting to make the witness a member of “their sexual group,” the detective’s statement said.

Moore is charged only with murder, though the detective’s statement said that Moore had admitted to a pastor, Shelley Hundley, that he had committed sexual assaults.

Hundley, who is a member of the executive team at the International House of Prayer in south Kansas City, declined to comment Saturday night.

In the past, 15 cars or more, many with Texas license plates, would crowd the street once or twice a week and the house would fill with people, mostly men, said Terra Lindsey, 32.

“My kids asked why there were so many people in the house and they told them they did Bible study,” she said.

She studied English and Spanish and graduated magna cum laude from Southwestern University in Georgetown, Texas, in 2005, the obituary states. She moved to Kansas City to be an intern at the International House of Prayer.
