More Lies by Tony Alamo’s Defenders

This letter to the editor was published in the Southwest Times Record in Fort Smith, AR on Oct 3, 2008. Mark Cunneen claims he is not a member of Alamo’s cult but fails to mention that he WAS a member for over 35 years and currently is still a sympathizer. He also neglected to mention that his son Justin Cunneen married Tony Alamo’s step- daughter Becky Kroopf-Alamo (Sharon’s daughter) when she was fifteen and they now have many children together.

The Many Wives of Tony Alamo

Below are several (but not all) of Tony Alamo’s alleged wives. He has written and spoken favorably about polygamy over the years. However, he denies he has more than one wife but several victims have escaped and come forward with the truth. Alamo has fathered three children by different women who live in his home as “secretaries”. The total number of wives he has accumulated is unclear, to be sure. However, one thing is clear, only one of his children (Sion) is born from his legal wife, Sharon. The other children (Tabor and Antoinette) were conceived during Alamo and Kroopf’s marriage and the biological mothers (Lydia Willis and Elizabeth Mercado) are in the group and currently living with (or near) Alamo.

Tony Alamo has sired many children over the years but denies being a polygamist. There are three children, in particular, of interest to the public. Sion, Tabor and Antoinette. These three children were all conceived during Alamo’s legal marriage to Sharon Kroopf. Sharon is the biological mother of one of the children, Sion, but the others have been born to different mothers who reside with (or near) Alamo under the guise of being “secretaries”. Lydia Willis is the mother to Tabor and Elizabeth Mercado (aka “Lizzy” Gutierrez) is mother to Antoinette. Former wives have come forward with the truth about Tony Alamo and his many wives and the children born of his polygamist lifestyle.
