Boys

What about the FLDS adolescent boys? Where are they, what do they do?

Please contribute any information about particular teenage boys, their circumstances, outcomes, etc. I’ll kick it off:

Parley Jessop – only son of Tammy and Merril Jessop. Parley became entangled in the juvenile justice system at age 13. He took a construction truck joyriding and had a mishap – might have done some other stuff but nothing too serious. He was monitored by juvenile and child welfare authorities – went through counseling, made sure he was going to school and being taught the right subjects. His mother showed up, his father didn’t (like in Merrianne’s case).

Parley had two big issues: 1. he desperately wanted his father’s attention and 2. Parley couldn’t live by the strict FLDS rules and he was miserable. But he was only 13 although he was already traveling to different states to work construction with brother Ernie. Merril had gone to Texas and left him behind, and Tammy showed up in the news in Texas helping with the Ranch kids.

So where’s Parley?

UPDATE May 2, 2009:

I’ll start a list from names mentioned in comments.   I would really appreciate any additional information if anyone knows th particular circumstances or outcomes of these boys:

Sam Icke
Joe Williams
Gideon Barlow
John Jessop
Jerry Blackmore
Richard Gilbert
Thomas Steed
Richard Ream
Don Fischer
Dean Barlow
Walter Fischer
Bruce Barlow
Parley Dutson
John Jessop was 13yrs old when he was kicked out

GIDEON  BARLOW:

ST. GEORGE, Utah — Abandoned by his family, faith, and community, Gideon Barlow arrived here an orphan from another world.

The freckle-faced 17-year-old said he was left to fend for himself last year after being forced out of Colorado City, Ariz., just over the state line.

”I couldn’t see how my mom would let them do what they did to me,” he said.

When he tried to visit her on Mother’s Day, he said, she told him to stay away. When he begged to give her a present, she said she wanted nothing. ”I am dead to her now,” he said

  1. Parley Dutson was convicted of murder in 2008. His girlfriend and he were at a party, and supposedly doing drugs. Parley demanded in front of everyone to have sex with his girlfriend. She refused. They went in the bedroom and she still refused, so they fought, and he was trying to rape her, and pulled a gun and shot her in the head. The others at the party came running in the room and Parley was still trying to have sex with his dead girlfriend.
    They called police, and when the police showed up, he was talking to himself, saying weird things.
    At the trial, his friends testified to everything they saw, and how they couldn’t believe he did that.
    The defense talked about the fact, he had been raised in Flds, kicked out , and basically used the teaching of Patriarchal society as being part of the blame.

  2. didn’t the defense in the Parly Dutson case say something about how he had been taught that women must always be submissive to men and that’s what he thought should have happened with this girlfriend.

  3. See pages 142-143 of this book to learn how Sam Barlow would target certain teenage boys. He would then trump up some criminal charges against the targeted boys and harass them until they left the community. Boys as young as 13 were targeted and harassed into leaving.

  4. Did you know one boy was kicked out of Flds becuase he gave a girl (he liked) a necklace? Shame isn’t it. A young boy liked a girl so gave her something, probably a trinket and she accepted. The next day the boy was kicked out.

  5. Parley Dutson was high on drugs when he killed his girl friend.
    Drugs and alcohol are the downfall of many people. Most of the criminals in prison have problems with drugs and alcohol. A lot of inmates would not be in prison if they hadn’t been involved with drugs and alcohol.

  6. Parley Dutson was kicked out of his home April, just a kid. A kid who was born into a cult which believes MEN rule everything, including women. You cage a child for the first 14 or 15 yrs of their life, in such a stringent atmosphere, without being allowed anything but the people you are born to, once you are thrown out of that cage, you are going to have major problems trying to adjust. It could be drugs, or alcohol, or suicide, which several of the boys kicked out have done. You neither understand the way this cult is run, or you wouldn’t make excuses for them.

  7. Does anyone know any other names and ages of boys who were kicked out or “left voluntarily”

  8. Sam Icke
    Joe Williams
    Gideon Barlow
    John Jessop
    Jerry Blackmore
    Richard Gilbert
    Thomas Steed
    Richard Ream
    Don Fischer
    Dean Barlow
    Walter Fischer
    Bruce Barlow
    Parley Dutson
    John Jessop was 13yrs old when he was kicked out
    Most were 16
    There are many more, still looking for names

  9. The AG of Utah had a list of over 400 boys

  10. A little scepticism please. not all accusations are true.

  11. Which are not true?

  12. Frank Johnson was kicked out of the FLDS. 2 of his sons Johnnie (14) and Franklin (16) ended up leaving the FLDS after their father was kicked out (or shortly after because of their mother’s new situation).

    Frank Johnson’s wife was reassigned and he went to Eldorado shortly after the raid to try to get his other children back after they were taken into state custody.

    Johnnie and Franklin are wonderful boys. They struggled for a long time, but are really making a great life for themselves now, although they had to do it mostly on their own, without any help from their father Frank (exed) or their mother (who was moved to the YFZ Ranch.)

  13. Parley Dutson was already out on his own trying to fend for himself when he was only 16 years old when I met him. He might have been even younger than 16 when he was thrown to the wolves and just trying to survive. He worked hard each day in the construction business. Before he moved to Salt Lake City, Parley was a really sweet, friendly and thoughtful young man. That is how I remember him. I don’t know what happened after he moved to SLC, but I was so shocked and saddened to learn about the awful thing that happened with him and Kara. That is nothing like the Parley I knew and loved!

  14. Anon, the point is, from birth these children are stringently controlled. The destruction of young lives will continue as long as they are being taught they way they are.
    David Draper was a young man who was kicked out to. He committed suicide, Blaine Jeffs committed suicide.. All these people were controlled by ONE man. every thought, every action.
    Then all of sudden, whether kicked out or left, they are in the real world without skills. without help, and they are dead to their family left behind by order of the prophet.
    Parley Dutson’s life is now ruined, he was on drugs, but he made the choice to kill another person. His life is forever ruined.

  15. DD, I agree with you that is wrong for teenaged boys to be expelled from the community. I have children myself,and I would never do that to any of my children.

    However, I believe that drugs and alcohol played an important part in Parley Dutson’s behavior. Drugs and alcohol lower a person’s inhibitions, and the person may do things that he wouldn’t normally do. That is why many prison inmates have histories of alcohol and drug abuse.

    That’s very sad. I’m sorry your friend ended up this way, and sorrier for the victim. I don’t know anything about his case , but I know it is an unthinkable wrong to abandon teenage boys for ANY reason. It is hard for me to get my mind around a parent casting out a child because their religious leaders commanded it or because they perceive their child as a liability to their own standing in the community. It’s also illegal.

  17. If anyone is interested here’s Parley Dutson’s family group:

    Father: Dutson, Bygnal Merlin

    Mother: Sylvia Johnson Dutson

    Children:

    1 Bygnal Melvin Dutson
    2 Lehi Bygnal Dutson Living
    3 Rose Marie Dutson
    4 Parley Jeffs Dutson
    5 William Robin Dutson
    6 Jared Bygnal Dutson
    7 Nada Dutson

    Sister Wife: Marjorie Hilda (Norling) Dutson Dutson

    Child: Margene Dutson

  18. Wonder what Parley Dutson’s relationship to Keith Dutson Jr. under indictment in Texas is.

  19. I’m trying to find out.

    Wife: Hannah Joy Cooke
    I Edson Roy Barlow
    2 Holly Joy Barlow

  22. Parley Dutson and Keith Dutson Jr are not brothers and don’t look like first cousins but I can’t really tell. You pretty much have to have someone from inside the community who remembers who is related to whom. Otherwise it gets to be a tangled knot that is difficult to untangle past one generation.

  23. Hang on, maybe I can figure it out.

  24. No, I can’t.

  25. DEAN BARLOW:

    BARLOW, ALAN JOHNSON 07-07-56

    5. Barlow, Alisha 11-18-89
    6. Barlow, Jeffery Fritz 07-15-91

  26. I was happy to read that a Mormon family took Gideon Barlow under their wing.

  27. For Daniel Barlow, I’ve got his parents as Ianthius Winiford Barlow and Violet Jessop. Also, I’ve got the wife Sarah (Draper) Barlow Barlow listed as Sarah Johnson. She was at the YFZ with her children and I also have an Autumn listed for her being born in 2004. Who is the 2nd Barlow she married?

  28. Sarah Draper was the nurse who left and went to Abilene Texas to do nursing after the children were returned. I saw a picture of her at the YFZ reunion in San Angelo. She just went by Sarah Draper where she worked.

  30. Answer to the “Where’s Parley” question is Eldorado. He was arrested a couple of weeks ago and the ranch allowed him to cool his heals in jail.

  31. So they tell you, eh.

  32. Hey, does anyone know whatever happened to Parley Jessop and/or Tammy Jessop?

    Ms.Carolyn’s book mentions that Parley was kicked out and something happened and Tammy had to leave texas or whatever in order to re-gain custody of him, I think.

    I’m just curious.

  33. How old would Parley Jessop be? I may know..

  34. wow i have to wonder what God thinks about all this sadness

  35. Wait, so are Brunhilde Fritz and Alfred Otto Olschewski Austrian or German immigrants who converted to the FLDS? Shouldn’t the boys from “Sons of Perdition” be on this list as well? Sam Zitting, Joseph Broadbent, and Bruce Barlow. And Holden Barlow.

  36. Brunhilde Frida Fritz was born in Stuttgart Germany and emigrated to SLC in 1956, where she married Olschewski.

  37. FDLS is nothing but a cult of so-called men who want nothing but power and control
