Last month, Leah Remini announced that she was leaving the Church of Scientology. She plans on writing a tell-all memoir about her experiences in Scientology, including "everything that's taboo to talk about." And now, word is the actress has filed a missing person report for Shelly Miscavige, the wife of the church's leader David Miscavige.


According to The Underground Bunker:

…One of the main reasons [Remini] began to question her involvement in the church was discovering at the wedding of Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes in November 2006 that Miscavige was there without his wife, who had disappeared without explanation. When Leah asked about it, then church spokesman Tommy Davis told her, "You don’t have the fucking rank to ask about Shelly."

Shelly Miscavige has not been seen in public in six years. There's reason to believe she is being held on a "secret compound" in the mountains above Los Angeles. Now, with Remini involving the LAPD, some answers may come to light. But it won't be easy, writes Tony Ortega, because even though the Church's administrative headquarters are in L.A., the the compound is technically in San Bernadino county, and it's a "jurisdictional jigsaw puzzle." But if you want to crawl deep inside a creepy culty Scientology rabbit hole, read this and this, where you'll find terms like "Church of Spiritual Technology" and "ethics particle" and "office-prison." Yikes.

Leah Remini just painted a HUGE target (or surveyor's mark if you happen to be an Alaskan grifter) on her back. I don't envy her actions. I hope she has the resources and determination to see this through, because it only gets uglier from here. That being said, for what she's already done, she's shown incredible courage since you cross Scientology in LA publicly at your own peril.
