In the time that has passed since Bethany was found murdered in her van not much has changed. Her husband, Tyler Deaton, has moved to another area and taken a job as a teacher, Micah Moore, the man that confessed has gone to trial and Mike Bickle distanced himself and IHOP from the Deatons, even going so far as to teach on what constitutes a cult in the wake of allegations about Tyler Deaton’s group. Rolling Stone Magazine has researched and written an in depth article about the death of Bethany Deaton that is available online.
Here’s hoping that the media attention Rolling Stone is bringing to Bethany’s death has the effect of jolting the local police into doing a more thorough investigation into the alleged sexual assault of Bethany and the mysterious circumstances in her passing.
