Mystery of missing wife of Scientology leader: Woman who played matchmaker to Katie and Tom hasn't been seen since 2007 Shelly Miscavige is credited as the cupid to Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes' doomed alliance Theories surrounding the disappearance of Shelly from running away to death from cancer A more extraordinary claim is that she was locked up in 'The Hole', after allegedly being caught filing job applications without her husband's consent Others claim she was sent on an intense 'behavior modification program' at a remote, confidential location

Why isn't it being investigated by the authorities?
Man these guys get more and more sinister as I read more about them, I think France are thinking of banning them, you can not ban a Religion? well guess what it is no Religion it is a cult.
n February 2011, Lawrence Wright wrote a profile of a high level defector from Scientology, Hollywood director and screenwriter, Paul Haggis (Crash, Million Dollar Baby). One paragraph states: [David Miscavige's] word is absolute, and he imposes his will even on some of the people closest to him. According to Rinder and Brousseau, in June, 2006, while Miscavige was away from the Gold Base, his wife, Shelly, filled several job vacancies without her husband’s permission. Soon afterward, she disappeared. Her current status is unknown. Tommy Davis told me, “I definitely know where she is,” but he won’t disclose where that is.
According to former insiders, Miscavige’s wife Shelly became suspicious of the close relationship between him and his “Communicator,” Laurisse Henley-Smith. Shortly after this, Shelley Miscavige disappeared from the Int Base. She was no longer present at meetings, and her post title, “COB Assistant,” disappeared from internal dispatches. She is thought to be on an intense behavior modification program at a remote, confidential location. 2. Following Shelly’s disappearance, Laurisse became Miscavige’s constant companion. She accompanied Miscavige to Tom Cruise’s wedding, and attended a Del Mar race with Dave, Tom and Katie, where she was photographed with her hand possessively on his shoulder.
David Miscavige, had been known to race out into the barren landscape, armed with an Uzi submachine gun, to hunt down possible enemies. He certainly had many weapons to choose from, amassing a personal collection of more than sixty guns. Besides an Israeli assault rifle, a 12-gauge double-barrel shotgun given to him by Hubbard, he had a Dirty Harry Magnum .44 and a Walther PPK of the type used by James Bond. Nor was he afraid to use them.
Early one morning he noticed that a no parking sign had been put up opposite his office. Ordering his butler to bring his shotgun, he spent a few minutes blasting the errant sign to bits. “He felt powerful with guns,” recalls an aide. “It was his way of intimidating people.” In the desk of his well-appointed office, the leader of the church had a .38 handgun. No one knew if it was loaded or if he was only joking when he said they needed to be well armed for when the “radioactive mutants come over the hill.”

From accounts I've read and seen once in a documentary about her husband made by several former high-level Scientology members who worked closely with him, he's supposedly a very violent and abusive man, and I mean physically abusive to those who work under him. It's supposedly a whole culture of that he created where higher level members at the top levels actually physically intimidate lower level members, beat them up, slap and hit them just to assert their dominance. Apparently it isn't even always done for any reason, just sometimes random shows of power. If all of this is true, then it wouldn't surprise me much if he carries that same behavior over to his home life and it also wouldn't surprise me if the guy went too far one day with it and seriously injured or even killed her.

In the late 80's me and friends would go hang out in Hollywood walking up and down the strip, and these guys would always stop us and try to get us to watch the movie they had going on there, Thank goodness we never went in. Its amazing that a BOOK could start a cult like this.... poor weak minded.

Think of what a guy like this has to lose if someone like his wife turned on him and potentially had secrets. I'd almost have to label this one a no-brainer. Will he ever get busted for it? Not without a body and some direct evidence. This is also probably why most people haven't heard wind of it.
The Gold Base is the international headquarters of the Church of Scientology on a 700-acre (2.8 km2) parcel of land in unincorporated Riverside County, California, outside of San Jacinto, and north of Hemet. It is at or near 19625 Gilman Springs Road, Gilman Hot Springs, California, 92583. The area is the home of Golden Era Productions, the media and publications division of the church, which is the largest of the many organizational units there. David Miscavige and other top leaders of the church live and work on the Base. Contents
