Another Lisa McPherson case: Three French citizen scientologists arrested in Nuoro, Italy charged with kidnapping and holding captive a woman

3 French members of Scientology were arrested yesterday in Italy for kidnapping and holding hostage a woman, who was found in a condition similar to the one the Late Lisa McPherson was in just before she died in 1995.

As Jeff Jacobson posted today over at alt.religion.scientology usenet group:

"On December 5, 1995, Lisa McPherson was dead on arrival at a hospital 45 minutes north of Clearwater Florida. According to the coroner's report, Lisa was underweight, severely dehydrated, and had bruises and bug bites (see the entire report here).

Lisa's last address was listed by the police as 210 S. Ft. Harrison in Clearwater Florida, which is the Fort Harrison Hotel, a Scientology property. Lisa had been a Scientologist from the age of 18 to her death at age 36.

Lisa was put on the Introspection Rundown that Scientology uses to handle those who have had a psychotic break.

On November 18, 1995, Lisa was involved in a minor car accident. She was apparently not hurt, but she got out of her car and took all her clothes off and seemed mentally unstable. She was taken to a hospital where she was physically evaluated as being unharmed, but the hospital wanted her to be psychologically cared for. However, some Scientologists arrived and stated that Lisa did not believe in psychiatry, and she checked out after a short evaluation and left with the Scientologists. She went with them to Room 174 of the Ft. Harrison Hotel for "rest and relaxation" according to the church, but church logs from Lisa's stay there from November 18 to her death December 5 show differently. Some logs are missing, and a high ranking ex-Scientologist has written an affidavit in which he claims that the church has in the past destroyed documents that might get the church in trouble.

The family of Lisa McPherson sued Scientology and individuals involved for wrongful death, while Scientology claimed it did nothing wrong toward Lisa While settlement talks were completed after being forced by the court, (Civil Case settled 5/28/04) the case appears to still be active. Scientology had a web page (removed or moved) that smeared Lisa's aunt and attorney.
"

Now we have another victim in the news. I cannot let this important story slide by. In 1984 I lost a dear friend, Dale Bogen, who underwent this kind of treatment and she was found dead, a supposid suicide. People were afraid to speak up. Then Lisa died and what happened after that was a war with Scientology that is emblazioned in the minds of so many people who try to keep Lisa's memory alive.

Lisa and Dale are not alone. The victim in this recent situation was saved only due to her ingenuity in leaving notes outside where she was staying, so that someone would call police.

What most likely happened to latest victim is that she became irratic or psychotic during scientology 'auditing' and was put on a program called the Introspection Rundown, same as Lisa and Dale. Part of this program is a thing called muzzled destimulation, as described here.

It is degrading, inhumane and illegal in many countries to not help a person get proper medical care. Lisa and Dale died and this woman escaped. There is a very important story to be told here. This is the dark side of scientology.

What happened to Lisa McPherson?

Lisa McPherson was a Scientologist who tragically died from a blood clot as a result of a car accident. Sadly, individuals tried to profit from the death of this poor girl. That's why you know about it. Here is what happened:

1. Lisa McPherson died of a pulmonary embolism (blood clot). Allegations to the contrary made about the Church by Medical Examiner Dr. Joan Wood on national TV were unfounded, as she herself would later have to concede when she was presented with all the evidence.

2. None of the top medical experts around the country who have been consulted on this matter agreed with Wood's conclusions.

3. The only doctor to support Wood's interpretation on national TV -- without examining the evidence -- was convicted of witness tampering. He intentionally broke a bone in the neck of a corpse in connection with a New Jersey lawsuit.

4. Lisa's aunt Dell Liebreich alleged in a suit against the Church that Lisa planned to leave the Church. This is false. Lisa had booked a Christmas/New Year vacation aboard the "Freewinds", a Church of Scientology religious retreat and had paid for the airline tickets already.

5. Liebreich hardly knew Lisa and admitted in deposition that she never had a meaningful conversation with her in her entire adult life and showed no interest in the living Lisa. Her deposition shows her concern about acquiring Lisa's possessions.

6. After Lisa's traffic accident, she was seen by the hospital’s psychiatric liaison, who concluded that she was not a danger to herself or others.

7. When the medical examiner looked at all the facts she came to the conclusion that Lisa McPherson suffered an accidental death as a result of a pulmonary embolism caused by an injury to her leg in the auto accident. All charges against the Church were dismissed by the prosecutor.

8. When the judge in the civil suit was presented the evidence, he ruled that Lisa McPherson was at the Church of her own free will and dismissed a major portion of the case. The remaining part of the civil case ultimately settled. Here is the June 14th, 2000 press release.

She was not mistreated, she was willingly in the care of friends. She did not lose 50 lbs.

The medical examiner determined that Lisa died of natural causes. [The medical examiner initially found the cause of death to be “undetermined” and reached numerous erroneous conclusions wrongly suggesting that Ms. McPherson had been the victim of neglect or abuse. She then compounded these errors by presenting her mistaken analysis and conclusions to the public unlawfully and in a highly inflammatory way. Following correction of her error on Lisa’s death certificate and the formal finding that Ms. McPherson’s death was accidental ,as well as the revelation of other serious errors in her office, she resigned as county medical examiner.]

This was a tragic accident made worse by the Lisa McPherson Trust.

Lisa was not mistreated, she was willingly in the care of friends. She did not lose 50 lbs. These are lies invented to align with a harassment campaign against the Church of Scientology and its members. The medical examiner determined that Lisa died of natural causes.
