Demonic Possession or Something Else?

Ruby Franke & Jodi Hildebrandt remain members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints despite their horrific abuse of two of the Franke children.

During the period that the children were being abused, Jodi maintained regular contact with leaders from the General Authority including Jeremy Jaggi. Jaggi is a member of the General Authority Seventies. According to the LDS website,

“General Authority Seventies are Church leaders called by the First Presidency to be “especial1 witnesses” and to assist the Twelve in “building up the church and regulating all the affairs” and “preaching and administering the gospel” throughout the world (Doctrine and Covenants 107:25, 34, 38). They act under the keys and direction of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles.“

Hildebrandt also met with BYU profess Brad Wilcox. She received a blessing from Temple President Steve Caplin.

In 2021, Jodi became possessed by demons according to an interview Kevin Franke gave to police. Jodi was seeing “shadow figures” and a “hot mess” according to Kevin.

During this time, Jodi’s local bishop came over every night for 4 hours a night to cast out the demons. After not having success, the bishop pressured Kevin to move Jodi into their home to intervene.

During the summer of 2021, Jodi moved into the Franke home. Her “demon possession” was so severe that “plates flew off shelves” and Kevin heard “people walking in between the walls. She required near hourly interventions in the middle of night. Ruby tasked herself with helping Jodi. Eventually Ruby moved into Jodi’s bedroom and they shared a bed. Ruby then asked Kevin for a separation.

During this entire period, they all maintained active communication with church leaders. Jodi was never excommunicated for her demonic possessions, unethical behavior of living with clients or breaking up a marriage. While Jodi lived with them and was under possession, the Frankes paid her for therapy.

Jodi believed she spoke directly to God and evil spirits were possessing her to stop her “work.” The LDS church knew that Jodi was mentally unwell, and coerced the Franke family to move her into their home.

I think the church wanted nothing to do with her after failing to exorcize whatever was attached to her. She also claimed "to speak with god".......Whatever she was communicating with was clearly not God, but maybe a trickster spirit/demon 🤔

Sounded like Jodi was moving up in the chain. As we know the higher you go in a cult, the more you access dark power. It didn't sound like she was possessed, but more like obtained an attachment.

LDS is known for abusive practices ranging from sexual child abuse to "sisterwives" polygamy of women.


Jodi experiencing dishes flying & seeing shadow people might not be due to demonic possession. It may be due to repressed abilities manifesting, because of denial. In other words, the more she fights her abilities existence- the stronger the manifestation becomes. Demonic possession usually manifests when a separate entity personality comes to surface, along with things like levitation, foaming at the mouth, eyes rolling back but, being wide awake, voice changes, growling, violent shaking, etc. The question is why was Mr. Franke pressured by their church to take in Jodi & risk exposing their children to someone known to be mentally unwell?

I wonder if they vetted her before coming into the conclusion of demonic possession idea

I am not familiar with this story but it sounds to me that both Ruby and Jodi are evil especially with abusing kids.. I cannot stand people who abuse children.. even the church and the bishop are in the wrong here (that’s my opinion) and pressuring Kevin to take Jodi in is kind of suspicious..
