Simone Buchman was a follower of Abraham Ophion's cult.
Simone, and her husband Carl, were introduced to Abraham when he started working in the Christian Tabernacle of Grace. They found him very intriguing, and soon started believing his alternative ideology.
They took their daughter Janie along with them to the cult, but when she was four years old the Buchman family withdrew from the church. Her husband found Abraham in Janie's room, with him being down to his shorts. After this incident they left Abraham's group.
