Jeffs’s Wife Flees Compound

One of the wives of polygamist Warren Jeffs was found earlier this week after fleeing the compound and is currently undergoing treatment at a woman’s shelter. Jeffs is currently serving a life sentence for sexual assault of a child. The 25-year-old woman, one of Jeffs’s 86 wives, was reportedly barefoot when she was found along the Utah-Arizona border. Until his recent conviction, Jeffs had been the head of a sect of the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, located on a famously reclusive compound in Colorado City, Ariz.
