A TEENAGER in the “world’s most inbred family” revealed to her friend that her sister was pregnant but they didn’t know which of her brothers was the father.
The family’s perverted patriarch Tim Colt, allegedly ran an “incest” farm in Australia, where he raped his daughters with his sons and fathered their children.
Colt allegedly raped three of his daughters – known as Rhonda, Betty, and Martha – and impregnated them.
The disgusting details of the “world’s most inbred family” have been revealed after a gag order on their gruesome trial ceased.
With only a few of the siblings attending school, the secrets of the twisted cult were buried for a long time.
It wasn’t until one of Colt’s teenage daughters who attended school told her classmate: “My sister is pregnant and we don’t know which of my brothers is the father”.
An investigation was launched and caseworkers and police were sent to the farm in June 2012.
They reported finding “very dirty and hazardous” living quarters and children who were “dirty” and “wore dirty clothing”.
The 38-member Colt clan were forced to live in squalor in a sickening story of incest, neglect, and paedophilia that shocked the world.
The children have been given court-appointed pseudonyms to conceal their identities.
Three of the late Tim Colt’s daughters have been dragged through trials, assaulted in prison, and ostracised in communities due to their inbred children – the products of rape and sexual relations with their own father and siblings.
Tim Colt also allegedly parented his daughter Betty’s 13 children, four of Rhonda’s offspring, and even his granddaughter Raylene’s child, Kimberly.
In one trial, Tim Colt’s son Roderick was found guilty of raping his niece, who was also his half-sister.
The victim, Petra, was the biological child of Tim Colt and Betty Colt and was also attacked by her uncle Frank in the back seat of his car during a visit to the family farm in February 2010, for which he was convicted.
She told police back in 2013 that she had never gone to school, lived “in a cult” and that “all my aunts, uncles and cousins have all been sleeping together”.
Betty and Rhonda’s sister Martha, who openly shared a “marital bed” with her brother Charlie Colt, gave birth to five children.
The brood were likely fathered by Charlie, her own father Tim and another brother, Roderick, it was revoltingly revealed at her trial.
She was slapped with a two-year prison sentence after concealing the paternity of her kids, who were all proven to be the product of sexual relations with a biological relative by DNA tests.
Martha gave birth to three sons and three daughters, one of whom died, between 1988 and 2006.
She claimed the kids were the product of five casual encounters, a tale a judge called “demonstrably untrue”.
The court heard how police intercepts of conversations between Martha and brother Charlie were brimming with “giggling and a degree of sexualised banter.”
Charlie Colt – who originally faced 27 charges – was found not guilty on two charges and acquitted, with the balance being withdrawn.
Tim Colt’s other two daughters were also convicted of perjury for attempting to hide the identity of their children’s fathers.
Betty was convicted of four counts of perjury, one of lying under oath and one of perverting the course of justice, and jailed for 14 months, which concludes in August.
Rhonda also received a 14-month intensive corrections order for perjury which again ends in August.
DNA testing would reveal all four women had children whose fathers were the mothers’ own father or brother, or a half brother, uncle, nephew or grandfather.
Of the original 80 charges originally levelled against eight Colts – including incest, child sexual abuse, indecency against a child and perjury – many were dropped.
Charlie Colt, who originally faced 27 charges – was found not guilty on two charges and acquitted, with the balance being withdrawn.
Although all eight family members were imprisoned after their 2018 arrest, only half have subsequently received custodial sentences.
Suppression orders had remained on the family’s interbreeding practices and rampant sexual interactions as eight family members were before the courts.
Three family members, Roderick, Martha and Derek Colt, filed notices of intention to appeal in 2020, all of which have since expired.
The horrific family history intertwined with incest only began to emerge nearly nine years ago after authorities discovered nearly 40 relatives living in inhumane conditions in an outback bush camp.
They lived amongst an uninsulated shed, old caravans and tents on a New South Wales bush block that was found in 2012.
The Colt children were sleeping in tents without running water, toilets, or electricity, had shuffling gait, and could not speak intelligible English.
The clan spread to remote parts of Australia after the NSW farm was raided.
Many of them have now reached adulthood and have shown marked improvement in personal hygiene and health – but they are still overshadowed by deprivations from their childhood.
Some have low slung ears or misaligned eyes as a result of inbreeding and they look decades older than their calendar age.
The once close-knit clan have dipped their toe in modern life by joining social media, but appear just as socially isolated as they were under Tim Colt’s control.
The Colt family originated in New Zealand with Tim and June Colt marrying in the mid-1960s before emigrating to Australia.
It had been stated in the original 2013 judgment by NSW Children’s Court president Judge Peter Johnstone that the Colts descended from a New Zealand brother and sister.
The couple had seven children – five of whom were Betty, Charlie, Rhonda, Roderick and Martha.
The Colt family travelled around the country performing at town halls, festivals and country shows, and even produced records with album covers featuring the patriarch and three children.
One sickening album has even entitled a collection of family “love songs”.
