More news about Bill Harris...uh...James Ray...

Sorry, I can't understand why I get those two names mixed up. Oh wait...



Anyway...

As would-be rescuers struggled to drag three unconscious victims from an Arizona sweat lodge ceremony in October, the leader of the event, James A. Ray, sat outside in the shade, according to newly released police reports.

In the reports, which were released Monday by judicial order, a woman whose husband was heating rocks for the ceremony told investigators with the Yavapai County Sheriff’s Office that she was able to pull one woman from the lodge. But, said the woman, Debra Mercer, when she told Mr. Ray that she needed to open up the back of the lodge to get the two other victims out, he replied that it would be “sacrilegious” to remove the tarps and blankets covering the wood frame structure and that she should do so only if necessary.

As Mr. Ray sat in a shaded chair outside, Ms. Mercer told investigators, she opened the tent and she and her daughter, Sarah, 17, and others helped pull out James Shore, 40, of Milwaukee and Kirby Brown, 38, of Westtown, N.Y.
