ULC pastor accused of fatal parenting advice
Deseret News | Submitted by: Reid Fleming
"Court documents filed by the Utah Division of Professional Licensing ask a state judge to order the counselor, Keith Alvin Reber, to cease treating clients at the Cascade Center for Family Growth, which has faced scrutiny since the death of 4-year-old Cassandra Killpack. Cassandra's parents, Jennete and Richard Killpack, are accused of giving her so much water that she died. The Springville couple say they were given the discipline advice at the Cascade center - an assertion Cascade owners and therapists vehemently deny. In the agency's July 10 filings, DOPL investigators allege that Reber, who came to Utah after Oregon officials moved to void his license as a marriage and family therapist, had been providing therapy to several children using a pastor's license. But Reber, according to the licensing agency's probe, is not a pastor at a Utah church. Reber reportedly told DOPL investigators that his credentials as a pastor were obtained through the Web site of the Universal Life Church, an Internet church that ordains all pastor-title seekers."
