The estate of a toddler, who was allegedly starved to death by her father in a killing linked to a cult, is suing the Georgia hotel where she was being kept.
Police say Alcenti McIntosh had been locked in a room at the Extended Stay in Peachtree Corners with her mother and three other children under five.
Authorities believe the 15-month-old was deliberately starved by Calvin McIntosh, 44, allegedly a member of cult called the Nuwabian Nation of Moors, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.
Now, the toddler’s estate has filed a lawsuit accusing the hotel of negligence, claiming it ‘knew or through the exercise of reasonable care should have known’ the child was being harmed.
According to the lawsuit, she was born in a hotel room there with six others and confined there with six others her entire life.
The suits, which asks for an unspecified amount of damages, names Extended Stay America, three staff members, and the child’s father as defendants, the Journal-Constitution reports.
In November 2014, McIntosh reportedly took the girl to the hospital, where doctors pronounced her dead on arrival. She was emaciated and weighed just 7.5 pounds.
Investigators went to the hotel, where they found McIntosh’s daughter Iasia Sweeting, who he fathered the girl with.
At the age of 21 weighed just 59 pounds, and three other children, between the ages of three and five, in the room were also found emaciated.
McIntosh’s other adult daughter Najilaa, who bore two of the children with her father, was reportedly ordered to withhold food from the others if they were disobedient.
Alicent’s death was found to be due to starvation, but the others all survived.
During their search, investigators found notes about the Nuwaubian Nation of Moors, a cult which mixes ideas of black supremacy with worship of Egyptians and the pyramids.
Members also suggest that white people are the devil. Calvin and Najlaa Mcintosh are in the Gwinnett County jail awaiting trial.
McIntosh and Najilla are now facing multiple charges in connection with Alcenti’s death, including murder and child cruelty.
He is also charged with multiple counts of incest, rape and sodomy. Both have been indicted, but no trial dates have been set.

BLACK SUPREMACY, PHARAOHS AND UFOS: THE NUWAUBIAN NATION OF MOORS
The Nuwaubian Nation of Moors, or Nuwaubianism, is movement that was supposedly originally a Muslim group, but can best be understood as a cult that follows a bizarre theology.
Nuwaubians call their belief system a ‘factology’, ‘Right Knowledge’ and a string of other names.
It mixes ideas of black supremacy with worship of the Egyptians and their pyramids, a belief in UFOs as well as conspiracies involving the Illuminati and the Bilderbergers.
It was founded in 1970 by Dwight York, who took advantage of his followers, sexually abusing children and conning adults out of their belongings.
York is currently serving a 135-year prison sentence for a string of child molestation charges and racketeering.
He trafficked children as young as four across the country primarily so they could be sexually exploited.
York was arrested after he had his followers built two pyramids out of wood and stucco and other Egyptian-style buildings on the compound, which they called ‘Tama-Re.’
Most of the Nuwaubians at Tama-Re lived in cheap trailers, while York lived in a mansion on the property. As many as 400 other Nuwaubians lived in the surrounding area.
He once said: ‘White people are the devil. They say the Nuwaubians are not racist – bullcrap! I am…White people are devils – always was, always will be.’
He is currently serving his sentence in the United States Penitentiary Administrative Maximum Facility (ADX) in Florence, Colorado.
According to a website about the movement, a passage reads: ‘We are the Indigenous people of these shores, before the settlers from Europe came to these shores spreading their way of life, their filth and religion.’
