Details of Disappearance
Marcos was last seen in San Juan, Puerto Rico on December 15, 1984. A member of the House of Prayer for All People abandoned him outside a Catholic church, possibly in the Santurce district.



In 1984, Anna ordered a member of the cult to abandon Marcos in Puerto Rico because he was "full of the devil." In 1992, she bathed a twelve-year-old child in bleach, causing severe burns, then left her tied to a bed, which exacerbated her injuries. The victim had permanent scarring. After the girl's parents found her and took her to a hospital, Anna was convicted of child abuse. Before she could be sentenced, she went on the run with Joy, her youngest daughter, who was still a child at the time. The cult dissolved in her absence.


Other former cult members supported Joy's story, stating that in 1988 or 1989, Anna had beaten and starved the boy over an extended time period until he was found dead inside her closet. His body has not been found; witnesses report that Anna put it in a large straw hamper and burned the hamper in a fire. She told other cult members that she had given the child away to be raised by monks.

Anna was charged with Emon's murder in December 2017. One man who was in the cult as a child said Anna forced other cult members to beat and torture his two-year-old sister, Katonya Jackson. Katonya had epilepsy and Anna also withheld her medication. Katonya subsequently died. At the time her death was classified as natural, but after charges were filed against Anna in Emon's case, Katonya's death was re-investigated and Anna was ultimately charged with manslaughter.


Joy believes her mother suffers from untreated mental illness and this caused her violent behavior. In February 2021, Anna reached a plea agreement with the prosecution and pleaded no contest to second-degree murder in Emon's case and manslaughter in Katonya's death. She was sentenced to 30 years in prison. As she was already 80 years old at the time of sentencing, it is a virtual certainty that she will die in prison.

Robert Davidson/Jonah Young died without being charged with any crimes, and no one has been charged in Catherine or Marcos's disappearances, but they are being investigated. Marcos's ultimate fate is unknown. Florida police are handling his case.
