Accused patriarch in child slavery case is called both a man of God and a cruel task master

Police tried for three decades to get people who lived, worked or worshipped with John C. McCollum to talk about what went on at McCollum Ranch, his two-acre compound on a rural stretch of highway in northeastern Cumberland County. They’re talking now, and they paint opposing portraits of the 67-year-old itinerant preacher, church patriarch and businessman who was arrested last month on charges that he ran fish markets and other enterprises using the indentured servitude of children.

The main roads and interstates in the Triangle region of North Carolina are mostly dry after Wednesday night’s snow storm, but many streets and roads remain plagued by ice and snow, particularly in neighborhoods that road crews haven’t gotten to. Road conditions are worse south and east of the Triangle.
