​Remini Scientology Crazy Complaint Closed​​

Leah Remini filed a missing person’s report after leaving the Church of Scientology, stating that the wife of leader David Miscavige has not been seen in public for six years. Remini asked police to investigate, which the church is calling an “inexcusable distraction.”

The Los Angeles Police Department has found Shelly Miscavige and have emphasized that the case has been closed and the report was “unfounded.”

Police closed out the investigation Thursday night and said that they had “a face-to-face with Shelly,” but they did not indicate if they investigated whether the woman was being held against her will.

Shelly Miscavige was said to have been transferred to a “secret compound near Lake Arrowhead in the mountains above Los Angeles,” according to blogger Tony Ortega, who runs the Scientology-centric blog the Underground Bunker. The place is the headquarters to the Church of Spiritual Technology and is home to about a dozen Scientologists who are “completely cut off from the outside world,” he wrote.

The church has denounced the former Village Voice editor on several occasions, but his reporting on the organization has been considered influential.

In an update to Ortega’s original post, he said he’d talked to an LAPD spokesman who told him that the case was closed. However, sources told Ortega that Remini had not been briefed on the case and had been told Thursday afternoon that it was still open. Ortega also has made the case that the church has a relationship with law enforcement agencies.

Remini’s interest in Shelly Miscavige reportedly dates back to the 2006 wedding of Katie Holmes to famous Scientologist Tom Cruise. When Remini, who was a guest at the nuptials, asked why Shelly Miscavige was not in attendance, she was rebuked by Tommy Davis, the former head of the Scientology Celebrity Centre, the New York Post reported. Davis reportedly scolded her and told her she didn’t have the “rank” to ask about Shelly. This incident was among the alleged reasons that Remini broke ties with the church.

A rep for the church has denounced Ortega, Remini and the latest reports regarding Shelly Miscavige.
