BREAKING NEWS – Puerto Vallarta, Mexico – A New York cult leader who called women his “slaves,” branded them with his initials and coerced them into sex acts was arrested in Mexico on sex-trafficking charges. Keith Raniere, the co-founder of the NXIVM cult that began more than two decades ago, was taken into custody after Mexican immigration officials found him in a luxury Mexican villa near Puerto Vallarta. Authorities said Raniere, who is known as “Vanguard” in the organization, formed a secretive group within NXIVM that had women join a slave-master club called “Dominus Obsequious Sororium,” which translates to “Master Over the Slave Woman.” He was reportedly staying at the $10,000-a-week villa with several women. Raniere was returned to Texas and is expected to appear in court in Fort Worth. If convicted, federal prosecutors plan on giving him the option of a long prison sentence, or to receive probation but only after a hot iron has been used to brand his groin.
