‘Love Has Won’ Leader Amy Carlson’s Cause of Death Released

A coroners report revealed that Amy Carlson — the leader of the fringe spiritual sect Love Has Won whose mummified remains were discovered in April — had died from a combination of “alcohol abuse, anorexia, and chronic colloidal silver ingestion.”

The El Paso County Coroners Office in Colorado Springs, Colorado released its findings, obtained by Rolling Stone, seven months after the death of Carlson — “Mother God” to her followers — who was 45 years old and weighed 75 pounds at the time of the April 28th discovery of her mummified corpse enshrined in a follower’s Colorado trailer.

The coroner also determined that, despite the bizarre circumstances surrounding Carlson’s corpse — seven of Carlson’s followers were arrested and charged with abuse of a corpse and child abuse, though all of the charges would later be dropped — her death was “natural.”

God is dead. Or, at least, she has shed her physical vessel, ascending from this life to a higher plane of existence, one of pure love and enlightenment. So say the followers of Love Has Won, who believe that God is a 45-year-old woman.

On April 28, 2021, Miguel Lamboy walked into the Salida Police Department and told authorities that they would find an enshrined, mummified corpse, formerly Amy Carlson, at his house in Crestone, Colorado. Officers documented Lamboy’s full report in an affidavit, in which his association with the group is downplayed, describing the followers living in his house off and on for years as people who temporarily needed a place to stay. He apparently had no knowledge of Amy’s death, or how her corpse — she died in California — ended up in his Colorado home. “Mr. Lamboy stated that he got up this morning (April 28, 2021) and left for Denver, Colorado,” reads the affidavit. “Mr. Lamboy stated that he left Denver and went to Buena Vista, Colorado and then returned to his residence. Mr. Lamboy stated that is when he found a deceased female,” whom he knew to be Amy.
