ST. GEORGE — Sam Brower, the private investigator who played an important role in the case against polygamist leader Warren Jeffs, will be the guest speaker at the Washington County Republican Women’s luncheon, Feb. 4, at 11:30 a.m.
The luncheon will be held at The Abbey Inn, 1129 S. Bluff St. in St. George. The cost is $15. RSVP by calling 435-656-4361 or by email.
In 2011, Brower wrote the book “Prophet’s Prey,” which exposes abuse and corruption within the polygamist community controlled by religious leader Warren Jeffs. A documentary film with the same title was recently adapted from the book and premiered at the Sundance Film Festival. The film has also aired on Showtime.

Brower considers the FLDS religion to be a cult and a crime syndicate. He will discuss aspects of his investigation, the case against Jeffs and what is happening now within the Colorado City polygamist community.
