Church of the Lamb of God was a polygamous sect of the Mormon Church. It was founded by Ervil LeBaron, who considered himself to be a prophet.

In the 1970s, Ervil LeBaron was put in prison after he was convicted of ordering the murder of his brother.

He later wrote a book that would become the group's bible and decreed that members breaking the sect's commandments were sentenced to death, according to the FBI.

In May 2010 the Jacqueline Tarsa LeBaron, Ervil's fugitive daughter, was arrested in Honduras.

LeBaron is wanted by the FBI for a series of murders in the 1980s, carried out based on the "Book of the New Covenant." It was scriptures that her father wrote while in the Utah State Prison, where he was serving time for murder. However, federal authorities called it a "hit list."

Ervil LeBaron died in the Utah State Prison in 1981. But in the years following his death, more than two dozen mysterious deaths occurred that ex-members of his Church of the Lamb of God believe are linked to the book, which was smuggled out of the prison.
