Alexander Jentzsch, who was the son of Scientology President Heber Jentzsch, died a mysterious death on July 2 in L.A.’s San Fernando Valley. The cause of death has not been determined, as they are awaiting toxicology reports.
“Jentzsch’s autopsy was done last week. There was nothing abnormal about it and his body didn’t show any signs of trauma,” Los Angeles County Assistant Chief Coroner Ed Winter told RadarOnline.com exclusively. “The cause of death will be listed, for the time being, deferred, until the toxicology results are in, which should be about four to six weeks from now. There was also a bottle of Nyquil and several prescription bottles recovered from the scene.”
Alex, 27, has been hidden from the public since 2004, according to reports. His mother, former Scientologist Karen de la Carriere, was not allowed to view her son’s body at the Los Angeles County Morgue.
“My daughter-in-law, Alexander’s wife, isn’t allowing me to view my own son’s body. My son’s wife and her parents are Scientologist, and I sent a friend of mine over to their house today with a letter for his wife. Alexander’s mother-in-law answered the door and told my friend, ‘all communication goes through the Office of Special Affairs’,” de la Carriere previously stated.
Under California state law, Alexander’s wife has full control over Alexander’s body, including who may view it.
“My son had a history of fevers; he would get them at least twice a year. Alexander was never properly diagnosed, and he didn’t have health insurance through the Church. When he got sick, he was ordered to go to Los Angeles County Hospital and be treated there. I can’t believe my beloved son is dead. …I was told from various friends that he had died of a high fever,” the devastated mother stated to Radar.
