    wonder if the burns could have been electrical? or chemical?

    and also "they were determined forensically"
    who performed the autopsy?

    maybe she was "given" enough pills to fall asleep.
    so she would stay passed out in the car long enough for the fumes to overcome her?
    tin foily and a guess of course

    And if anyone has any information leading to the resolution of the mystery surrounding the death of Lisa McPherson, please share them.

    I'm looking directly at you MartyR.

    That is all. You fucker.

    They weren't cigarette burns, they were BTs blowing out through the top of her head.

    I don't know why Marty thinks there is some big mystery here. Sounds like an on-policy application of LRH tech and admin.

    My guess, and it is only a guess, is that she was suffering from a personality disorder and had engaged in self-harm, either immediately before or, even while at, Flag. She might have used something like a soldering iron to burn her head. For a Scientologist of her level, suffering from a mental disorder of this magnitude would have to be kept secret at all costs. When, desperately seeking help, she finally came clean at Flag, she was declared an illegal PC and marched off the base. As an indoctrinated Scientologist, she now had no solution and no hope - she would never go see a psychiatrist for help. She probably decided that the thing to do was end-cycle on this life and hope for better luck in the next.

    Again, all in line with LRH. Exactly what Marty would do if he were running the show as per policy. Where is the mystery, Marty?

    You think she went all the way from Germany to Florida (being endebted), to get herself a soldering iron and burn spots of her skin all over her head?

    • Quite difficult - there are easier ways to self-harm
    • No scarfs from earlier burnings mentioned
    • Biggy was too old to start self-harm

    I'd consider this to being highly unlikely. But it certainly would be what Co$ would claim. And again if it were the case it would have been failure to assist a person in danger by Co$ if they escorted her to the airport instead of making sure she gets medical assistance.

    I wonder if the burns were about the size of electrodes.

    I wonder if she ended up in a local Clearwater hospital 'somehow' -- as a commentator in the VV pointed out, such burns could be consistent with brain scan imaging. I worked once in a radiology unit, and they do happen. Did scientology grab her from a hospital a la Lisa McPherson and drop kick her to the airport onto the first flight back to Germany?

    If she was in a local hospital, how would one find out?

    Why would she go to Clearwater to get brain scan imaging?

    burn marks sound like clumsy curling iron injuries to me

    Maybe it was from a relaxer touch-up

    her hair was not burnt
    e-dective is so fun aint it?

    Um, she did not go to Clearwater to have brain scan imaging! She went to Flag, but if she had a seizure (as just one example of a medical situation which could land her in the hospital) she could've ended up with tests of various sorts.

    a straight rod curling iron (not a flat iron), rolled to closely to the scalp will do exactly that - scorch your head, but not burn your hair.

    So she was Public Exec Sec of Hamburg org when she sent a letter to Flag stating that she was not satisfied with what she got for her money from SO. Then went to Flag for "handling".

    Maybe she asked for a refund, as she realized that her problems hadn't been solved while piling 10 mio € debts instead. I'd guess Hamburg org not happy with that. I'd guess Flag not happy with that.

    Especially when the only 'evidence' presented is 2nd-hand Marty reports. How and when did he see the autopsy report? Why doesn't he include a scan?
  26. Anonymous Member

    A dozen times? That would only happen if someone was burning themselves with the iron on purpose. And the burns would be a lot bigger than a cigarette burn.
  27. Anonymous Member

    I would imagine that Ursula Caberta had knowledge of or a copy of the autopsy report.

    As was pointed out above, Marty wants to investigate anything he wasn't involved in.

    Why would she have a seizure? No referals to this. She went there to have her dissatisfaction handled.

    A rod curling iron causing burned spots sized as from cigarette ember? Nope

    when first learning the art of curling iron mania in the 1980's, a couple of whoops-knicked-head-at-tip for a fraction of a second would leave a tender spot much smaller than my pinky fingertip. and after the first week of curling... they add up, and just plugging the bitch in made one's head hurt in anticipation.

    This happened in 2006, curling irons were safer by then. Forget the curling iron.

    All roighty. Let's try this again.

    Biggie went to Flag. Not to go to the hospital, but for scientology services scam. According to her flight ticket, she was supposed to be there for 2 weeks. She got shipped home after only 4 days. Hmmm, that seems very odd. We don't know why, but obviously the cult freaked out for some reason and wanted to get her out of dodge, fast.

    Fast forward a few more days. She is found dead of carbon monoxide poisoning. And autopsy results reveals that she had about a dozen very small burns on her head. And her hair was not burnt (which means they were not caused by something on fire). Hmmm again. According to autopsy, the burns would've happened during the time she was in Florida.

    Now this is just speculation, but what if, just what if some sort of medical emergency occurred while she was at Flag that landed her in the hospital--and she was given some tests, and the technician administering the tests botched them.

    And what if the cult, scared to death of another Lisa McPherson meltdown, grabbed her out of the hospital and put her on the 1st plane back to Germany? Which would've been a very very traumatic event for a completely broken down, brainwashed, desperate OT VIII.

    Anyways, this is all just a kind of Occam's razor thought experiment. And if something along this kind of scenario is what happened, then the Cult is guilty, for taking this woman for everything they could possibly get from her and then throwing her to the curb when it became clear (no pun intended) that she could easily become another Lisa McPherson -- before her death.

    And besides, from her picture it doesn't look like she sported an 80's curly-do. Rather her hair looks like naturally wavy hair that was washed and dried naturally.

    I do not know florida's laws, but in many states medical records of the deceased are no longer private. Can someone do a search?

    While the case of Biggi Reichert is very important for revealing the crimes of CoS, it just came to my mind that Marty seems to be too busy to ever respond to Gerry.

    Weird. I can only speculate.

    Maybe the Scientologists are playing around with their own Persinger's helmet (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/God_helmet0 --something new for the SuperPower building with its trippy astronaut training equipment. Except their version involves solenoids directly on the scalp.

    There's no medical procedure I'm aware of that might cause a dozen small scalp burns.
  38. There are several probable scenarios for this:

    a) She freaked out in Clearwater and became "PTS III". The organization doesn't want to take any risk anymore and sends her home, i.e. "offloads her".

    b) They discover in Clearwater that she is not a "Flag-eligible PC" and offload her. That happened a few times in the past. Someone who is considered even before getting auditing a risk factor is sent home or not accepted at Flag (past extensive drug use (LSD), psychiatric past, etc.

    c) They have determined that her "PTP" (Present Time Problem) is so great that she has to "handle it" before she can receive auditing. That might be her debts, or legal difficulties. So they send her home as well.

    I have seen all of the above happeneing in Clearwater.

    Copypasta of a Pooks comment on Tony's blog:

    Now, just as speculation -- what if PTS Type III behavior landed her in the hospital, and they gave her brain scans to rule out "physical causes" such as a brain tumor? If she was admitted to a hospital emergency room even for a short stay (and if it was under her own name) would their be a way to find out? Another possibility is that she went to a private radiology clinic for diagnostic tests, and in that case, there could be no way to find out.

    Improperly administered radiology exams can -- I used to work in a radiology unit, and the radiologist used to talk about the risk sometimes.
