13 Children of Anna Marie Lloyd

Content note: Case narratives include descriptions of severe violence inflicted on children, including abuse and neglect, sexual violence, torture, and murder, as well as mentions of suicide and domestic violence. They also include photos of victims and perpetrators of violence.

A 10-year-old girl was physically abused by her mother, Anna Marie Lloyd, who also allowed the girl to be sexually abused by her brother. The girl was homeschooled.

Lloyd was a member of the Arkansas new religious movement run by Tony Alamo until shortly before it was raided in 2008. Around that time, while living in Oklahoma, Lloyd lost custody of many of her 13 children. Lloyd subsequently moved to Wisconsin, where she was living in November 2016 with her 17-year-old son, 10-year-old daughter, and a 2-year-old. The 10-year-old girl was not legally registered as a homeschooler; however her mother claimed to be homeschooling her despite the fact that she “could not read, write or count and would have used a computer program for homeschooling but did not know the password.” Lloyd frequently punched the 10-year-old and the 2-year-old in the head, and stated that she “was aware another one of her sons had sexual contact” with the girl, saying the child was “fine with it.” She also encouraged the girl to smoke marijuana.

The abuse came to light in November 2016 when the girl’s school district notified child protective services that the girl was not being legally homeschooled. Lloyd was charged with child abuse.
