COLORADO CITY, Arizona (KSL) - There's mystery, worry, and new indications of turmoil among followers of imprisoned polygamist leader Warren Jeffs.


At least three of his followers' most prominent businesses were suddenly closed in the Fundamentalist LDS Church's twin towns of Colorado City, Ariz., and Hildale, Utah. The closures involved the community's only grocery store, the hardware store and a Radio Shack.


"Warren would have told them to do that," said former FLDS follower Isaac Wyler. "They wouldn't do that on their own. They wouldn't dare."


It's not known if the closures are related to a doomsday prophecy Jeffs reportedly issued last weekend.
