After his mother's death, and father's abandonment, 11 year old George Mitchell became the self appointed guardian of his little sister Esther. A decade or so later, 16 year old Esther joined a religious cult and was chosen as the next "Bride of Christ". Well this proved too much for the protective older brother, so he stalked the "free love" cult leader to Seattle and shot him in broad daylight. Arrested & tried for murder, he was found "not guilty" by reason of insanity - there was a overwhelming public disdain for the cult and its leadership, with one district attorney was even quoted "...taking the law into ones own hands, under such circumstances...is almost excusable." On the day of his release, his little sister followed George to the train station and shot him dead - in retaliation. George (1883-1906) now rests in the Friends #cemetery Newberg #oregon under this great #whitebronze #tombstone with the #epitaph "Greater love hath no man than this, that lay down his life for his friends." *Esther is buried on the Oregon coast, and when I get a chance to visit her, I'll share the rest of the story. #deathstination #gardenofwhitebronze #voodoo_society #grave_affair #etoe_2 #graveyard_freaks #fa_sacral #aj_graveyards #tv_churchandgraves #project_necropolis #graveyard_dead #graveyard_life #vd_sepulcrum
