The twisted family who shocked the world for their ‘incest cult’ in New South Wales have shared sick photos online.
Six years after authorities first uncovered Australia’s most depraved child abuse case, Betty Colt, a court pseudonym, has shared photos on social media with the family motto plastered across the bottom.
The Colt matriarch shared a photo of herself on Facebook with family members.
The photos had a pink graphic and love hearts framing the bottom of the photo alongside phrase ‘love makes a family’, News Corp revealed.
A Facebook quiz Betty Colt filled out also described the woman as a ‘fun mum’ whose ‘children love (her) because there is never a dull moment with (her) around’.
The family of 38 were separated by officials after they were found living in squalid conditions in 2012 with no running water, toilets or electricity, 328km west of Sydney.
Welfare officers removed 12 inbred, illiterate and malnourished children from the bush camp including five of Betty Colt’s children – one she conceived with her own father.
Many of the children did not know how to brush their teeth, slept in dirty beds among cigarette butts and rotting food, couldn’t wash their hair or use toilet paper and had facial deformities.
Once in care they told officials of horrific sexual abuse by adults and by siblings on the isolated farms, on children as young as 12.
Judge Peter Johnstone, president of the Children’s Court of NSW, forbade Betty Colt, some of her brothers and sisters and her daughter Raylene from living with some family members.
However, Betty Colt has continued to share messages and love hearts on social media where a family member believed to be her son has also posted a photo with the same ‘love makes a family’ sticker, the publication reported.
Other members of the incest cult including Betty Colt’s nephew Karl have also shared photos using the family motto.
The family matriarch spent a year in prison in 2014 for trying to kidnap two of her sons, Bobby, 15, and Billy, 14, from foster care.
While some family members including Tammy, Betty’s oldest child, have relocated and started new relationships.
Other incestuous cult members, Jed and Karl – Betty’s sister Martha’s children -reportedly stay in touch with their aunty.
