Re: How Lisa might REALLY have died
[11 Jan 1998]

I would estimate that for every ONE page of a Scientology document related to Lisa's
treatment I HAVE read, there are A HUNDRED pages I haven't seen. I GUARANTEE you that
it is rare for files to get LOST by Scientologists.

You are welcome.

What most disturbs me is that I KNOW THAT Scientology is hiding
and/or withholding information about Lisa's isolation treatment
under the watch and during the guard by the CULT of the "modern
'science' of mental health" (Scientology), which has also been
called a FINANCIAL INSTITUTION by their founder, L Ron Hubbard.

I wish the world could learn of information pertaining to Lisa's
isolation - information which is claimed by Scientology to have been
"lost" and/or "unlocatable".

I wish I could see the ORIGINAL notes, including ALL reports
written by Janis Johnson, Dr. Minkhoff and ALL persons who
observed ANYTHING having to do with Lisa's psychotic break.

Of course, in order for Scientology to COME CLEAN and actually
COOPERATE with the investigation, it is my plea that the organization
pull out the WITHHELD "ethics" files, the "knowledge reports", the
daily "Case Supervisor" instructions, SECURITY WATCH personnel reports,
COMPLIANCE reports, etc. In order to honestly COME CLEAN on the whole
subject of Lisa's sad death, it would of course be necessary for
Scientology to release Lisa's personnel file, ethics file and statistics
for her jobs (in the Sea Org and at AMC Publishing), records of course
completions, auditing actions, ACCOUNTS FILE records and any "PTS
handlings" done on Lisa.

Any internal actions taken by Scientology to ensure "CORRECTION OF
INDIVUDUALS" involved with Lisa's isolation should be turned over to
the court. AND any prior "ethics & justice handlings" done before Lisa's
death (like Comm Evs, Courts of Ethics, RPF assignments, lower condition
assignments, post transfers, Boards of Investigations, OSA Invests,
Situation Handling Evals, Amends Projects, etc) should be disclosed.

Cramming orders issued should be provided for inspection.

Original documents should be available for inspection.


have claimed, then WHY does the cult WITHHOLD SO MUCH INFORMATION

Do they not have the courage of their convictions to back up their
statements by providing evidence to support their statements? Of
course, as we have already seen, various Scientologists have told
CONTRADICTORY information!

I would estimate that for every ONE page of a Scientology document
related to Lisa's treatment I HAVE read, there are A HUNDRED pages I
haven't seen.

I GUARANTEE you that it is rare for files to get LOST by Scientologists.

It is FAR MORE COMMON that files are REMOVED from their CORRECT
LOCATION (Organization, Division, Department, Section, Unit, etc).
The FSO logs I have seen cover only ELEVEN DAYS out of EIGHTEEN that Lisa
was in isolation on the Introspection Rundown. I suspect that some of
the photocopies I have read are not accurate "FACSIMILIES" (in the
Scientology sense of the word), but rather are photocopies of ALTERED

That's why I would like to see the originals, e.g., to see whether
quotation marks have been added around words like "guard".

Has a WITHHOLD been missed, Scientology?

I have a pretty damned good idea of what she went through. I have
seen other Scientologists (Terry Findley is a good example) in ISOLATION.
I have known other Scientologists who participated in "BABY WATCHES"
of "Type III PTSes" (Scienospeak for persons who have suffered psychotic

According to Scientology's OWN POLICIES, Lisa SHOULD HAVE BEEN ALLOWED
TO SEEK AND OBTAIN PROPER *MEDICAL* CARE! I will post titles and excerpts
from the applicable policies by Hubbard which comprise the beliefs
and operating policies and procedures of Scientologists.

Do you hear me, Heber?

I hope Ken Dandar uses in court what I have written. I am looking
forward to seeing your face when your cult members testify.

I am SO OUTRAGED that I want to sit next to the plaintiff's legal
counsel while your organization's members are testifying. I want to
HELP COACH Mr. Dandar while he questions the Scientology witnesses,
assuming of course that there is a civil trial for wrongful death.

I PERSONALLY GUARANTEE I could tell the right questions to get to
the truth. I know how to catch Scientologists LYING by using "TRs"
training against Scientologists. I have studied and applied the Data
Series as well.

Scientology has always said that one of its "missions" in this
world is to "put ethics in" on others.

I believe it is HIGH TIME that the organization comes clean to

Are not Scientologists supposed to obey the laws of the country,
as written in _The Way To Happiness?_, e.g., "Don't do anything

Are not Scientologists supposed to obey the policies of their
founder, Hubbard?

OK then... *Where* are the MISSING REPORTS, Scientology?

Have "withholds" been missed yet?
