Australian cult leader Anne Hamilton-Byrne has died in Melbourne at the age of Her cult, The Family, was accused of imprisoning and brainwashing children in the s and 80s. Hamilton-Byrne thought she was a reincarnation of Jesus Christ and blended drug-taking with mysticism and Christianity. For most of the accusations against her, she never faced trial and suffered from dementia in her later years.

Originally a yoga teacher, she founded the cult in the late s; it operated for more than 20 years, until police raided its property in the state of Victoria in She and her husband Bill Byrne took children through adoptions, allowing the cult to assemble and imprison them in a strict home-schooling environment at a rural property near Eildon in Victoria. Allegedly administering drugs to the minors, the cult was also accused of subjecting them to beatings, starvation and brainwashing.

The children wore identical clothes and had their hair dyed blond; they were told that one day they would take over the world. Police began investigating the cult in the late s and broke up the group, freeing the children. Former Victoria police detective Lex de Man, who investigated Hamilton-Byrne at the time, said he "shed not one tear today", according to the Australia's The Age.
