He and River, with the rest of the family were with the Children of God. In my opinion a very weird cult/group, many of the children who grew up
within those communities have grown up with drug problems. The leader I believed preached paedophilia and incest, actively encouraged it. I watched
a documentary years ago about it so the details I have are sketchy, but River went pretty much off the rails before he died from a speedball
OD...nasty way to go, same way as John Belushi...anyway, I am sure that there is an unusually high number of these kids who have died via suicide and
overdoses. Also, Joaquin, or Leaf as he was then known, was a child star (Space Camp), all the Pheonix kids worked to support the family, can't have
been great fun if your heart wasn't in it. Perhaps he is letting his hair down. I hope so, I would hate for him to end the same way as River.
