CARROLLTON -- The story is getting worldwide attention.

You'll find it on British Broadcasting, the Huffington Post, even Tuesday's edition of the New York Times.

It was one of the top ten emailed stories in the paper.

Amish taxi driver Bob Comer helped New York Times reporters with their research, he's been quoted by the BBC and appeared on Good Morning America.

The accused come from a splinter sect that settled in Bergholz, Ohio.

Their leader, Sam Mullet, is thought to be the mastermind, but is not charged in connection with these crimes.

Comer says fear in the Amish communities even has taxi drivers steering clear of the area.

"He grew up Amish and he saw an opportunity to play his game. He become like a god --that's what Sam thinks he is," Comer said.

To date, Sam Mullet faces no charges in connection with these attacks.

That doesn't seem to calm fears in the Amish community.

Comer says even Taxi drivers are refusing Bergholz delivery jobs, not knowing what danger they might be driving into or to what dangers they might be driving splinter group members.
