This nice-looking lady is Karen Zerby, a leading light of the Family International or the Children of God, a global cult that uses children as sex toys.  Zerby may have had sex with her son, who definitely grew up to kill a woman in a murder-suicide scene.

Ricky Rodriguez was the son of Karen Zerby, who later married The Family International founder David Berg. A childcare manual published by the cult in 1982 describes, with photographs, the sexual abuse put on Ricky as a child. After Ricky left the group in 2001, he became a vocal critic of The Family. On January 8, 2005, Rodriguez murdered his former nanny, who had been involved in his sexual abuse. When he failed to find his mother, his next target, he committed suicide on a deserted road.
