Carlson, who also went by Lia, started her foray into the world of Love Has Won in 2006, according to her family during an appearance on “Dr. Phil” in September 2020.
The cult seems to have first been founded in Crestone but it is believed that is not where Carlson died, even though that’s where her mummified body was found decorated with glitter and Christmas lights. Carlson had been ill for some time, and authorities say foul play is not suspected in her passing.MORE NEWS: C-130 Makes History By Landing On Highway 287 In Wyoming
After Kramer and Karin Raymond were released from jail, they spoke with CBS4’s Rick Sallinger. When asked if they believed Carlson would be in reincarnated, they said they didn’t know but Kramer added, “Maybe she will come off a starship.”
