PUTNAM COUNTY, Ga. — A cult in rural Georgia during the ’90s was hiding an awful secret.
They were the self-proclaimed Nuwaubians.
They built Egyptian pyramids, raised a lot of eyebrows and threatened local authority. But what happened in that community of thousands would do more than raise eyebrows. It would become an all-out war in Putnam County, Georgia and its sheriff.
True Crime Chronicles, a weekly true crime podcast, is featuring the Nuwaubians, the cult in rural Georgia that took on Putnam County Sheriff, Howard Sills.
This episode of True Crime Chronicles will feature interviews with Sills detailing how he took down the most infamous man in his county, as well as a local reporter-turned author who wrote extensively about the group and shocking crimes they committed.
