  • David Koresh’s Son: Sky Okimoto on Random Children Of Famous Cult Leaders: Where Are They Now?

    (#7) David Koresh’s Son: Sky Okimoto

    Branch Davidian leader David Koresh believed that the end of the world was coming and prepared his breakaway Seventh-Day Adventist church members for the coming apocalypse. Koresh believed he was called upon by God to have many children with his female followers to ensure a House of David. Koresh established that only he could have sex with female sect members.

    Allegations of child abuse, statutory rape, and the stockpiling of weapons led to investigations by authorities. When the ATF appeared at the group’s Mt. Carmel compound, a standoff ensued. After 51 days, Koresh, 75 people died, including 25 children

    In 2008, Koresh’s son Sky Okimoto told Good Morning America, "Being the son of David Koresh, yes it was pretty hard. I felt like something was wrong with me because so many people hated my father." He also added, "I'm pretty much at peace with the fact that he existed. Sometimes I look up to him because of his charisma. Other times I think he was crazy."

  • Anton LaVey's Daughter: Zeena LaVey on Random Children Of Famous Cult Leaders: Where Are They Now?

    (#15) Anton LaVey's Daughter: Zeena LaVey

    Conceived as more of a mockery of Western religion than true Satanism, Anton LaVey's Church of Satan quickly became a thriving cult of personality. Despite being hailed as one of the great modern philosophers by his followers, LaVey was always a showman first and guru second. 

    LaVey's daughter, Zeena, received constant death threats since the age of 13 and backed away from the spotlight as she grew older. In 2002, she founded the Sethian Liberation Movement, a religious body aimed at allowing people to freely learn magic and to offer assistance to ex-cult members.

  • (#4) Shoko Asahara’s Daughter: Rika Matsumoto

    Shoko Asahara (born Chizuo Matsumoto) was the leader of Aum Shinrikyo, a sect responsible for a Sarin gas attack on the Tokyo subway system in 1995. The attack killed 13 people and injured thousands more. Asahara was put on death row.

    One of the 15 children Asahara fathered, Rika Matsumoto, was 12 when her father was brought in. In 2015, she published a memoir about her life on the 20th anniversary of the attacks. Matsumoto, who was considered a key figure in the cult, found post-Aum Shinrikyo life difficult, saying that she could not find work, a place to live, or a school that would accept her.

    Matsumoto sought to have her father examined to see if he was actually mentally ill. "I do not intend to say my father is innocent, but I want to know the truth - if or how he was involved in the crimes," Matsumoto said. "I want to hear from him in his own words what really happened."

    (#13) Roch Thériault's Son: François Thériault

    Between 1977 and 1989, Roch Thériault led a group of people called the Ant Hill Kids near Burnt River, Ontario. Thériault's cult was similar to Seventh-Day Adventists, and they were constantly waiting for the world to end. But Thériault was also impregnating all of the women while gruesomely mutilating their bodies. Thériault was eventually arrested and sentenced to life in prison, and was murdered in his cell in 2011

    After hearing about the murder, François Thériault spoke to Canadian media and admitted to being surprised that it didn't happen sooner. In 2009, François and one of his brothers published a book about their hellish childhood with their father.

  • (#2) Charles Manson’s Potential Sons: Charles Jr., Charles Luther, and Michael

    Charles Luther Manson was born on April 10, 1963 to Leona Rae "Candy" Stevens. Charles Luther Manson's whereabouts are unknown.
