Details: Devereaux Cleaver is the daughter of Sandy Cleaver, who joined a spiritual movement called "Conscious Development of the Mind, Body, and Soul" in the 1970s, which was created by Terri Hoffman. Devereaux and her mother reportedly had a rocky relationship. Terri allegedly told Sandy that her daughter had "demons". In February of 1979, Devereaux, Sandy, and another follower went on a vacation to Hawaii. While there, on February 25, Devereaux and Sandy went on a raft when she was allegedly pulled away by the water and drowned. Investigators later discovered that Devereaux had created a will and wrote all of her money and possessions to Terri Hoffman. Some believe she may have been involved in Devereaux's death along with Sandy's death two years later.
