Police tried for three decades to get people who lived, worked or worshipped with John C. McCollum to talk about what went on at McCollum Ranch, his two-acre compound on a rural stretch of highway in northeastern Cumberland County. They’re talking now, and they paint opposing portraits of the 67-year-old itinerant preacher, church patriarch and businessman who was arrested last month on charges that he ran fish markets and other enterprises using the indentured servitude of children.
