Guru James Ray's Comeback Attempt Disgusts Sweat Lodge Victim's Family - 2015-09-09
The family of 38-year-old victim Kirby Brown is disgusted by Ray's attempted comeback.
"It is offensive, and it's upsetting to me because I think he's still dangerous," says Ginny Brown, Kirby's mother. "This is criminal behavior that caused these deaths — this was no accident. So, from our point of view, we cannot sit by after our daughter's death and just allow the events that caused the situation to go unanswered."
Kirby Brown was one of 75 people who attended Ray's disastrous weeklong self-help retreat near Sedona in October 2009. During a sweat lodge ceremony, held in a makeshift tent draped with tarps, temperatures soared past 200 degrees.
