In 2011, he rebelled against the FLDS sect.
Then an “accident” put Wallace into a 45-day coma.
Growing up alongside future Fundamentalist Latter-Day Saint prophet Warren Jeffs, Wallace (pictured) tried to follow FLDS teachings. After he built a successful business, the church required him to marry a second wife. Wallace fathered twenty children, but he never felt comfortable with polygamy or other FLDS beliefs.
As his prophet-brother increasingly manipulated him, Wallace started hearing about FLDS atrocities. On the day the FBI arrested Warren Jeffs for child rape, the prophet was en route to reclaim Wallace’s second wife for himself. Wallace defied the prophet and soon ended up in a coma. Though Wallace feared FLDS sabotage caused his car crash, he kept fighting the sect.
With today’s movement against male abusers, Wallace’s story reminds us that power and position don’t corrupt all men. In 2018, Wallace found resolution by marrying an LDS woman in the Salt Lake Temple. At the same time, Destroying Their God renews our concern for the thousands who still live under FLDS control, including some of Wallace’s own children.
