What happened to Lisa McPherson?
Lisa McPherson was born on February 10, 1959 but she crossed paths with the Church of Scientology and spent over 170000 dollars on courses and auditing that she was told that she needed to be "truly happy".
Lisa got involved in a small car accident where she was not hurt physically but, she got out of her car and took her clothes off and appeared to be mentally unstable. She was taken to the hospital and found to be unharmed physically however the doctors believed that it would be best for her to go under psychosocial care. However, Scientology loudly opposes psychology and psychiatry seeing those who practice in this field as being kin to demons and so some Scientologists arrived and stated that Lisa did not believe in psychiatry and she was quickly checked out after a short evaluation and left with the Scientologists against her doctor's advice.
She was taken to the Fort Harrison Hotel, a was put in Room 174 for "rest and relaxation" according to the church, but church logs from Lisa's stay there state thatfrom November 18 to her death on December 5 show that Lisa was put on the Introspection Rundown, a Rundown that that Scientology uses to handle those who have had a psychotic break.
Some logs from her stay 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 and Marty Rathbun, a former high-ranking Scientologist, revealed that he was responsible for the missing logs saying that he ordered them to be destoryed.
As a response to Lisa's death, her family sued The Church of Scientology and individuals involved for wrongful death, all while the Church of Scientology claimed it did nothing wrong regarding Lisa but pictures of her dehydrated and cockroach bitten body prove otherwise.
On June 12, 2000 the criminal charges were dropped against Scientology because or so the prosecutor claimed that the medical examiner could not be counted on to confidently testify, even though the criminal charges were practicing medicine without a license.
So one has to wonder why was this allowed? And whats more, whats to stop the Church of Scientology from killing again?
The answer is a grim one, no one.
That is, unless this cult is stopped they could kill again.
