A 32-year-old male from the state of Pennsylvania was allegedly murdered by his 42-year-old girlfriend in connection to an online cult that warns of alien invasions and the end of the world.
According to authorities, Steven Mineo had been involved with an online website that pushed apocalyptic theories and stories. He told his girlfriend, Barbara Rogers, 42, that he wanted to break away from the cult because they were harassing him.
To avoid having to deal with the cult, Mineo asked Rogers to shoot him dead.
Rogers accommodated his request by shooting him. Police found Mineo with a single bullet hole to his forehead.
Rogers was charged with criminal homicide and is being held without bail.
