Reader: Teen girl near Raniere is Lucy LeBaron’s sister

I received this email today:

Hi Frank,
First off, I must thank you for all the information you’ve published. Thanks to you, my family is back together, stronger and closer than ever. My family member joined ESP years ago and it drove a wedge in our relationship. Many times people tried to recruit me and I did join Jness for a weekend, but felt it was a bunch I already knew, then stuff that just didn’t sit right. I was convinced, years later to sign up for an intensive, though after a good chat with a non-ESP friend, I backed out last minute. Thank goodness!

From the first time I heard about this group, something didn’t feel right. It was also interesting how those in the group treat “outsiders” (aka “supressives”). Like you’re less than them because you don’t believe some fat guy can set off police radars and potty trained himself at 8 months. I’m still amazed such smart people can be fooled into Kool-Aid drinking. And yes, there are, and were a lot of highly intelligent people in this cult. It baffles me.

Lucy LeBaron lives in Clifton Park, according to her Facebook. Is she encouraging her sister to be mentored by Vanguard?

The main reason I wanted to write you is because of the message you received from Kimberly Le Baron. One of the teenagers in the pics you posted is a Le Baron. Cecelia, I think her name is. Her older sister Lucy has been an Espian a long time. This too amazes me. I’d never in a million years let my little sister near a man with the reputation Keith has. What the fuck are they thinking?!

Anyway, I had this info you might find useful. I’m also pretty sure at some point earlier this year (or late last year), a group of teen girls were staying with Brandon Porters family.

Use this information as you wish. I do want to stay anonymous for now. I don’t want any backlash to fall on my ex-Espian family member. I have been vague with personal info so it (hopefully) can’t come back onto my family.

You’re doing a kickass job. Keep blowing these unethical, evil bastards outta the water. I’d love to see several of them rotting in a jail cell, which is what they deserve.

Is the girl in the middle Cecilia LeBaron? Is she under the age of consent? Is she being mentored by Keith Raniere?

  • Anyone who leaves their sibling, daughter, kid right now around perverted Uncle Keith should have social services called on them. That simple. End of story. The fact that so many girls (now women) who have said he raped them when younger means that parents / siblings / friends who allow him to be around young people now are grossly neglecting their responsibility.

  • As a person who has defected, and a very good friend of Lucy’s please take this down.

    Lucy and her youngest sister are NOT in DOS.

    I know this 100%. They are good people.

    If anything you should take this down and write a post about Sam Lebaron and her dedication to Nancy, Keith and the cult.

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

Additionally, Parlato’s coverage of the group OneTaste, starting in 2018, helped spark an FBI investigation, which led to indictments of two of its leaders in 2023.

Parlato 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. This was ironic, as many credit Parlato as one of the primary architects of his arrest and the cratering of the cult he founded.

Parlato is a consulting producer and appears in TNT's The Heiress and the Sex Cult, which premiered on May 22, 2022. Most recently, he consulted and appeared on Tubi's "Branded and Brainwashed: Inside NXIVM," which aired January, 2023.
