Lest anyone try to obscure the issue, I picked up a copy of Helter
Skelter today and checked out the index for references to
Scientology. Yep, there they were, and for your edification...
"I knew too, both from his prison records and from my conversations
with him, that Manson's involvement with Scientology had been more
than a passing fad. Manson told me, as he had Paul Watkins, that he
had reached the highest state, "theta clear", and no longer had any
connection with or need for Scienology."
and a series of connected, and still unsolved murders ...
On November 21, 1969, the bodies of James Sharp, fiften, and Dorren
Gaul, nineteen, were found in an alley in downtown Los Angeles. The
two teen-agers had been killed elsewhere with a long-bladed kniife or
bayonet, then dumped there. Each had been stabbed over fifty times.
Ramparts division Leiutenant Earl Deemer investigated the Sharp-Gaul
murders, as did Los Angeles Times reporter Cohen. Although the two men
felt there was a good possibility that a Familty member was involved
in the slayings, the murders remain unsolved.
Both James Sharp and Doreen Gaul were Scientologists, the latter a
Scientology "clear" who had been residing in a Church of Scientology
house. According to unconfirmed reports, Doreen Gaul was a former girl
friend of Manson Family member Bruce Davis, himself an
Davis' whereabouts at the times of the murders of Sharp, Gaul and Jane
Doe 59 are not known. He disappeared shortly after being questioned in
connection with the death of Zero.
On December 1, 1969, Joel Dean Pugh, husband of Family member Sandy
Good, was found with his throat slit in a London hotel room. As noted,
local police ruled the death a suicide. On learning of Pugh's demise,
Inyo County DA Frank Fowles made official inquiries, specifically
asking Interpol to check visas to detrmine if one Bruce Davis was in
England at the time.
Scotland Yard replied as follows: "It has been established that Davis
is recorded as embarking at London airport for the United States of
America on 25th April 1969 while holding United States passport 612
2568. At this time he gave his address as Dormer Cottage, Felbridge,
Surrey. This address is owned by the Scientology Movement and houses
followers of this organization."
END OF HELTER SKELTER QUOTES
So now we have TWO Members of the Manson Family who had been
Scientologists, Charlie and Bruce. Was Bruce Davis an EX? Why was he
living at a Scientology house? Did these people die as a result of
Scientology trying to hide the Manson connection? Is there more to the
Manson-Scientology connection that has yet to be revealed? It would
not surprise me.
This was all LONG before my involvement with Scientology but there are
probably people out there who were there at the time. Can anyone
contribute more information?
