Mountain Man FLDS Lost Boy?

Mountain Man on Arizona-Utah border
A mountain man who roams the wilder- ness of south- ern Utah, breaking into remote cabins in wint- er is res- ponsible for more than two doz- en burg- laries has continued to outrun the law across a swath of moun- tains not far from Zion Na- tional Park. The coffee and alcohol the survi- valist favors plays into some cabin owners’ assessment that he could be a castaway from the nearby twin towns of Hildale or Colorado City on the Utah-Arizona border. The so-called lost boys are said to be regularly booted from the polygamous sect there by elders looking to increase their marriage opportunities with young women.
Unlike members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, which discourages consumption of alcohol and coffee, many of the Mormon fundamentalists imbibe.
