The Guru Magazine has obtained the official autopsy report of Amy Carlson aka “Mother God” who was the leader of the Love Has Won cult. It was conducted by Emily Russell M.D. from the El Paso County Coroner’s office in Colorado Springs, CO. The Guru Magazine was first to report Carlson’s death on April 30th, 2021. Saguache County Coroner Tom Perrin said the delay in the autopsy was due to finding a lab to test the body for metals. The special liver testing did find the presence of silver.

The doctor concluded in the autopsy report, “Based on the information available to me at the time of report it is my opinion that Amy Renee Stroud (Carlson), a 45-year-old adult white female, died as a result of global decline in the setting of alcohol abuse, anorexia, and chronic colloidal silver ingestion.” She wrote that Amy was “mummified and adored with make-up and a crown.”

The autopsy ruled the manner of death as “natural” and found acetaminophen, hydrocodone (Lortab), hydromorphone (Dilaudid), THC, 11-OH-THC, ethanol (alcohol) and THC-COOH in Carlson’s system. According to Medline, “Hydromorphone extended-release tablets are used to relieve severe pain in people who are expected to need pain medication around the clock for a long time and who cannot be treated with other medications.” Hydromorphone is also called Dilaudid and is a highly regulated and powerful opiate used for recovery from surgeries and severe conditions. 11-OH-THC is described as having “increased potency” over regular THC.

Carlson told the Dr. Phil show she had stage 5 cancer. Her followers also repeatedly stated that she was dying of cancer but there was no cancer found in the autopsy.

Carlson was found decomposing, wrapped in Christmas lights in a sleeping bag in the bedroom of the cult’s mission house in Crestone. Seven members were arrested in the home after member Miguel Lamboy went to the police and reported her body. The cult had brought Carlson’s body from Northern California and believed she had not died but rather was just “out of communication.” She had been dead for approximately a month when the police raided the house.

The Guru Magazine was first to publish the police bodycam footage of the Love Has Won cult raid and also published the full police bodycam footage of the interview with Miguel Lamboy.
