Reader: I live in ‘cult central;’ Raniere looks normal; Allison Mack not around

A reader writes:

As Mr. Parlato mentioned in a post, a lot of readers are intrigued by how nutty and bizarre this all sounds. How can this happen or even be allowed to happen? I live in the middle of cult central so many of the names you are reading about are my neighbors.

Honestly, Keith doesn’t look weird at all. He looks like any other 55 year old man you would see walking down the street; the women are all thin and attractive. And he does surround himself with women, but I have never seen him with what I would consider a teenager out walking.

I have only seen him walk with one man and that was Mark Vicente and probably a few years ago. Yes, I have seen him walk with Alison Mack but also not in a few years. Alison co-bought a town home in the development a few years ago but does not reside in it to the best of my knowledge.

Frank Parlato is an investigative journalist.

His work has been cited in hundreds of news outlets, like The New York Times, The Daily Mail, VICE News, CBS News, Fox News, New York Post, New York Daily News, Oxygen, Rolling Stone, People Magazine, The Sun, The Times of London, CBS Inside Edition, among many others in all five continents.

His work to expose and take down NXIVM is featured in books like “Captive” by Catherine Oxenberg; “Scarred” by Sarah Edmonson; “The Program” by Toni Natalie, and “NXIVM. La Secta Que Sedujo al Poder en México” by Juan Alberto Vasquez.

Parlato has been featured prominently on HBO’s docuseries “The Vow” and acted as lead investigator and coordinating producer for Investigation Discovery’s “The Lost Women of NXIVM.” He was credited in the Starz docuseries, 'Seduced,' for saving 'slave' women from being branded and escaping the sex-slave cult known as DOS.

Parlato has appeared on the Nancy Grace Show, Beyond the Headlines with Gretchen Carlson, Dr. Oz, American Greed, Dateline NBC and NBC Nightly News with Lester Holt, where Parlato conducted the first-ever interview with Keith Raniere after his arrest, which was ironic since many credit Parlato as being one of the primary architects of his arrest and the cratering of the cult he founded.
