Swannie Cross had two children, a son, and a daughter, from a previous marriage. Theresa’s father Jim worked as an assistant cheese maker at a local dairy.

3.John Joe Gray (Outlaw Family)
John Joe Gray (born 1950) claims to be a sovereign citizen and was a fugitive from the law. He currently lives on his 50-acre, wooded ranch in Trinidad, Texas. He was involved in the longest-running law enforcement standoff in American history, lasting a few days short of 15 years, before the district attorney dropped the charges.
The standoff began when Gray jumped bail after being indicted on two counts of felony assault. During a traffic stop in Anderson County, he allegedly attacked Texas Trooper, Jim Cleland. A struggle ensued after Cleland reached for a .357 caliber handgun in the car in which Gray was riding. Anti-government pamphlets and references to setting off a bomb on a highway overpass near Dallas were found in the vehicle. Gray was charged with two felonies, assault of a public servant and taking a police officer’s weapon. After promising to have no access to weapons while awaiting a hearing, he was out on bail when the judge held his bond insufficient and ordered the re-arrest of John Joe Gray.
Local Henderson County Sheriff Ray Nutt has stated “John Joe Gray is not worth it. Ten of him is not worth going up there and getting one of my young deputies killed.
2.The Fritzl Family (The Psycho Father, Foolish Mother, and Unlucky Daughter)
The Fritzl case emerged in April 2008 when a woman named Elisabeth Fritzl (born 6 April 1966) told police in the town of Amstetten, Austria, that she had been held captive for 24 years behind eight locked doors in a concealed corridor part of the basement area of the large family house by her father, Josef Fritzl (born 9 April 1935), and that Fritzl had physically assaulted, sexually abused, and raped her numerous times during her imprisonment. The abuse by her father resulted in the birth of seven children; four of whom joined their mother in captivity (one dying just days after birth), while the other three were brought up by Fritzl and his wife, Rosemarie, having been reported as foundlings.
Josef confined Elisabeth, tricking her into the basement when she was 18 years old. Three of Elisabeth’s children, born during her confinement, were imprisoned with their mother: 19-year-old (at a time of release) daughter Kerstin and sons Stefan, 18, and Felix, 5. Another, Michael, died of respiratory problems three days after birth, 0having been deprived of all medical help; his body was incinerated by Josef Fritzl on his property.
1.Colt Clan (Incest Family)
The Colt family incest case, dubbed by media as the Colt incest clan, is an Australian family discovered in 2012 to have been engaging in four generations of incest beginning with “Tim and June Colt,” a brother and sister who emigrated from New Zealand in the 1970s. The family grew to nearly 40 members ranging from grandparents to mothers, fathers, sons, daughters, aunts, uncles, nephews, brothers and sisters all engaging in various forms of incest. Many of the children suffered from deformities and medical problems. The case has been described by lead investigator Peter Yeomans as, “like nothing I’ve ever seen,” and was considered by many to be so shocking that in a rare move the Australian family court allowed full details to be made public, albeit with all names changed to pseudonyms for the children’s protection, including the family name of “Colt.”
They all lived on a farm near Boorowa, New South Wales according to NSW law case notes.
