Anderson Cooper 360
will have a segment tonight (December 4, 2007) about Ricky Rodriguez, The Family and Don Lattin's new book. I've heard it will also include an interview with Davida Kelley.
Here is an excerpt from a transcript of the December 3rd, 2007 show
Tomorrow on 360, disturbing memories of life inside a cult, a cult notorious for the twisted family values it preached. Here's CNN's Randi Kaye.

RANDI KAYE, CNN CORRESPONDENT (voice-over): You're watching a man unravel.
RICKY RODRIGUEZ, CULT MEMBER: I'm just loading some of my mags here. Hope you guys don't mind if I do that while I talk.
KAYE: Ricky Rodriguez had belonged to a sect that calls itself the Family International. He made this chilling tape two years ago.
RODRIGUEZ: This is my weapon of choice, the K-bar knife.
KAYE: Just days after this taping, two people will die.

COOPER: Who Ricky Rodriguez wanted to kill and why and how he dealt with his demons, the chilling story. That's tomorrow on 360.
