Shelley Lubben Dead at Age 50

Shelley Lubben obituary

Tulare County, CA -- Shelley Lubben, the controversial anti-porn crusader and founder of the Pink Cross Foundation was discovered dead Saturday morning, Feb. 9, of what 9-1-1 responders have called an apparent overdose. She was 50 years old.

Tulare County Sheriffs notified her parents via telephone shortly after arriving on the scene.

Shelley Lubben (1968-2019)

Mrs. Lubben had long claimed to be sober since the year 2000, saying that she had been miraculously cured of all her physical and mental infirmities after turning to God.

"He has completely restored me. I am totally free from drugs, alcohol, bad memories, mental illness, sexual trauma, guilt from the past, and everything from the old life. He even healed me from the non-curable disease herpes,” Shelley once proclaimed.

In reality, after falling off the wagon in 2005 and surrounding herself with enablers, she spiraled into a world of alcohol and prescription drug abuse which ravaged her body and mind.

On January 24, Ms. Lubben placed her 1974 Sierra Cabin Cruiser up for sale on craigslist, asking $3,500. In the description she noted, "There has been a lot of work on the boat and it's actually worth more but need to sell due to illness so am asking a much lower price than what I paid."

According to statements made in open court in Vista, Calif. on February 5, on the night previous Ms. Lubben was admitted to a hospital in San Diego for treatment of alcohol withdrawal. She returned to Tulare County after being discharged.

At the time of her death, Lubben resided in a Lemon Cove, Calif. trailer park. It was there that she was found unresponsive by a male friend who had thought she was sleeping.

He phoned 911 and began CPR, but when responders arrived they informed him that it was too late. Shelley Lubben was pronounced dead on the scene.

After examining Shelley's remains, and inspecting the scene, responders informed the friend, and later told Shelley's father and brother, that she had passed due to an apparent overdose. The Tulare County coroner will have the final word regarding the official cause of death.

There were three active restraining orders against Ms. Lubben at the time of her passing, a warrant was expected to be issued for her arrest in a criminal threat case, she was being sued by creditors, and had been named in a wrongful death action.

Lubben's scandal-plagued Pink Cross Foundation was shuttered in January 2016.

Shelley Lubben is survived by her parents; a younger sister and brother; two daughters; a grandson; and a boyfriend currently serving a California prison term for DUI hit-and-run Vehicular Manslaughter.

Ms. Lubben's eldest daughter Tiffany, a wedding photographer, passed away earlier in February, at age 30.

Shelley Lubben's remains were taken to the Evans Miller Guinn Exeter Chapel. Ms. Lubben is to be cremated next week, and her ashes scattered. No obituary has been posted to the funeral home's website, and, at the request of her surviving daughters, no services are planned.

Please join me in praying that Shelley Lubben can now find the peace that eluded her in life, and that her victims can likewise find peace and relief.

"I Will F@cking Kill You": Hear Shelley Lubben Threaten a Springville Woman; ARREST Warrant Imminent as D.A. Picks Up the Case

Springville, Calif -- On February 3, 2019, disgraced anti-porn crusader and notorious pill-popping drunkard Shelley Lubben violated a court order to issue criminal threats against a local woman, including vows to file false charges with Child Protective Services (CPS) as well as a death threat.

Here is a recording of that profanity-laced telephone call:

Note that Shelley Lubben brags about working "with the FBI" -- something that no one who actually works with the FBI would ever, or could ever, reveal.

The victim in this case is a local single mom who had once lived under the same roof as Shelley Lubben -- before Lubben was kicked out of the house for "erratic behavior and constant drinking." Ms. Lubben currently resides in a Lemon Cove, Calif. trailer park.

The victim has since received a temporary restraining order against Lubben, and the Tulare County District Attorney has picked up the felony Criminal Threat case. An arrest warrant is expected to be issued soon.

In related news, a separate three-year restraining order (the maximum permitted under California law) was issued against Shelley Lubben on January 29 in Tulare Superior Court. Lubben did not appear in court that day, but had been served with the civil harassment Temporary Restraining Order while she drank at the Antlers Roadhouse Thursday afternoon, January 3.

The order was granted after another local woman (then housemate of the woman whose life was threatened by Shelley Lubben) petitioned the court on behalf of herself and her 13-year old daughter, detailing "continuous and ongoing" threats and harassment since Lubben was told to leave their premises in November due to her "erratic behavior and constant drinking".

The Petition and supporting documentation filed Jan. 2 by the Springville woman also alleged incidences of theft, vandalism, trespassing, intimidation, and driving under the influence by Shelley Lubben.

Constant drinking

While claiming to be a Christian minister of the gospel, as well as a holy prophet, Ms. Lubben has publicly asserted that she has been sober -- and miraculously cured of all her physical and mental infirmities -- for nearly two decades.

It is notable that Shelley Lubben was served at a bar just one day after she told a Bakersfield court that she had the flu and was too ill to attend the proceeding.

TRO issued and Proof of Service filed with the court.

The following statement from the victim was filed with the court along with the petition for the order against harassment. It is quite devastating. (Please excuse the quality of the following images; I don't have a document scanner where I am right now and had to rely on photographs of the pages.)

"Shelley Lubben has made threats of violence to me and threats to me through family and friends . . . . The harassment has been continuous and ongoing since she was asked to leave my residence a month ago due to her erratic behavior and constant drinking. She has caused damage to my property and [a] neighbors' because she would operate her vehicle extremely intoxicated. . . ."

The victims' statement also alludes to Lubben's New Year's Eve trespass on the grounds of the victims' home, which resulted in a report being taken by Deputy E. Lemoine of the Tulare County Sheriffs on Dec. 31 -- the third report taken by the sheriffs while investigating claims that Mrs. Lubben has trespassed, robbed and vandalized the home and/or grounds, as well as harassed and threatened the residents.

The following exhibits were filed along with the petition for the temporary restraining order. They document an extremely manipulative and downright creepy series of text messages between Lubben and her former friend's 13-year old daughter. She attamepts to bribe the minor into letting her break into her mom's house.

Along the way, Lubben also appears to acknowledge her own notorious addiction to benzodiazepine tranquilizers.

Yet another restraining order

Shelley Lubben had a third restraining order issued against her in San Diego County on February 5, and that event will be the subject of its own blog post.
