A corpse believed to be that of a leader of a controversial religious group was found mummified in a sleeping bag, wrapped in Christmas lights and with glitter missing around its missing eyes.
They are believed to belong to Amy Carlson, 45, known to her followers in the US state of Colorado as 'Mother God'.
She was a self-proclaimed 'divine being' from the group Love Has Won. It has been branded by law enforcement and followers as a "cult", the Daily Beast reports.
The investigation into the corpse led to the arrest of seven members of the group on various charges, including child abuse and abuse of a corpse.
No one has yet been charged.
The Saguache County Sheriff's office found the body last week after receiving a tip from a suspected member of the group, Miguel Lamboy.
The affidavit said that Mr Lamboy said: "It was obvious that Ms Carlson was dead because her eyes were missing.
"Mr Lamboy stated that the body appeared to be mummified with Ms Carlson's teeth exposed through the lips."
The body was found in the group's headquarters, a mobile home, in rural Saguache County. It is said to have appeared to have glitter makeup around the eyes.
It is suspected that the eyes were missing due to the decomposition of the body, with officials believing she has been dead for weeks.
The official identity of the corpse has not been confirmed as her body was too decomposed to be verified via fingerprints.

She will be formally identified through dental records.
Saguache County Coroner Tom Perrin said the room where Carlson was found was "very decorated with murals on the walls and Christmas lights all around".
Two children, aged 12 and two, were asleep in the mobile home.
The coroner suspected that Carlson was ingesting colloidal silver – a formulation she had been selling as a cure for coronavirus.
