Until now, few details had surfaced about Ray's actions inside in the sweat lodge.Investigators are considering bringing charges against Ray in a case that has cast a harsh spotlight on him and his self-help empire as he led dozens of people into the sweat lodge during a five-day retreat that cost more than $9,000 per person. He has hired his own investigative team to examine the tragic events. Ray led the group in chants and prayers during the ceremony, Bunn said. People were not physically forced to stay inside but chided by Ray if they wanted to leave as he told them they were stronger than their bodies, and weakness could be overcome.Bunn lasted the entire two hours, but nearly two dozen others suffered serious injuries that sent them to the hospital.Kirby Brown, 38, of Westtown, N.Y., and James Shore, 40, of Milwaukee, died upon arrival at a hospital. Liz Neuman, 49, of Prior Lake, Minn., lingered in a coma for more than a week before dying.Sheriff's investigators in Arizona's Yavapai County are treating the deaths as homicides but have yet to determine the cause.PICTURES: Sweat Lodge DeathsPICTURES: Sweat Lodge DeathsMORE ON CRIMESIDEROctober 15, 2009 - Desperate 911 Call: First Glimpse Into Angel Valley Sweat Lodge Deaths
