Leah Remini: Where is Shelly Miscavige?

8/8/2103 update: Tony Ortega broke the story that Leah Remini has filed a Missing Person report on Shelly Miscavige with LAPD.

Actress Leah Remini was a member of the Church of Scientology for most of her life. Leah and her sister were even members of the Church’s slave labor “clergy” known as the Sea Org.

At Tom Cruise’s wedding to Katie Holmes in 2006, actress Leah Remini asked where Church leader David Miscavige’s wife Shelly was.

It was odd to Leah that her friend Shelly was was conspicuously absent from the highest profile Church social event of the 00′s.

Then Church spokesman Tommy Davis told Leah Remini that she did not have “the fucking rank” to ask about Shelly Miscavige’s whereabouts. Worse, Leah Remini was punished by the Church for even daring to ask where Shelly was.

Tony Ortega broke the story of Leah Remini publicly departing the Church of Scientology last week. After Tony’s excellent reporting, Leah’s departure from the Church became an international news story.

ABC News did an excellent piece on Leah Remini. The National Enquirer is now running with the story.

Former high-ranking Church member Karen de la Carriere (Class XII C/S) made a YT video about Leah:

Leah’s public departure from the Church focused a giant spotlight on Shelly Miscavige’s disappearance. The Church of Scientology is notorious for imprisoning its own members in order to make them disappear.

Even L. Ron Hubbard’s wife Mary Sue — who co-founded the Church of Scientology with her husband — was kept as a virtual prisoner under guard in her own home during the last years of her life.

FACT: If you go to any official Church of Scientology website you will not see the name or picture of either Mary Sue Hubbard or Shelly Miscavige. These two women are among the “Disappeared Ones” in the Church of Scientology. 

Despite the Church of Scientology’s attacks on former members who have weighed in on this issue, the Church has still failed to address the question: Where is Shelly Miscavige?

Shelly has not been seen in public for many years. Rumors are that her husband locked away his wife at a secret location. Allegations persist that Church leader David Miscavige is having an extramarital affair with a staff member named Laurisse Stuckenbrock.

Shelly Miscavige has not been seen publicly in many years. Is she yet another silent prisoner in the Church of Scientology?
