From braintree!news.sprintlink.net!news.zeitgeist.net!news.c2.org!news.c2.org!not-for-mail Tue Oct 31 10:53:55 1995 Path: braintree!news.sprintlink.net!news.zeitgeist.net!news.c2.org!news.c2.org!not-for-mail From: syrinx@c2.org (Syrinx Anonymous Remailer) Newsgroups: alt.religion.scientology Subject: Charles Manson, Scientologist Date: 29 Oct 1995 21:03:52 -0800 Organization: Community ConneXion: http://www.c2.org 510-658-6376 Lines: 63 Message-ID: <471mbo$l63@infinity.c2.org> Reply-To: alt.anonymous@demon.co.uk Comments: Please report misuse of this automated remailing service to <syrinx@c2.org> Lest anyone try to obscure the issue, I picked up a copy of Helter Skelter today and checked out the index for references to Scientology. Yep, there they were, and for your edification... page 635 "I knew too, both from his prison records and from my conversations with him, that Manson's involvement with Scientology had been more than a passing fad. Manson told me, as he had Paul Watkins, that he had reached the highest state, "theta clear", and no longer had any connection with or need for Scienology." and a series of connected, and still unsolved murders ... page 647 On November 21, 1969, the bodies of James Sharp, fiften, and Dorren Gaul, nineteen, were found in an alley in downtown Los Angeles. The two teen-agers had been killed elsewhere with a long-bladed kniife or bayonet, then dumped there. Each had been stabbed over fifty times. Ramparts division Leiutenant Earl Deemer investigated the Sharp-Gaul murders, as did Los Angeles Times reporter Cohen. Although the two men felt there was a good possibility that a Familty member was involved in the slayings, the murders remain unsolved. Both James Sharp and Doreen Gaul were Scientologists, the latter a Scientology "clear" who had been residing in a Church of Scientology house. According to unconfirmed reports, Doreen Gaul was a former girl friend of Manson Family member Bruce Davis, himself an ex-Scientologist. Davis' whereabouts at the times of the murders of Sharp, Gaul and Jane Doe 59 are not known. He disappeared shortly after being questioned in connection with the death of Zero. On December 1, 1969, Joel Dean Pugh, husband of Family member Sandy Good, was found with his throat slit in a London hotel room. As noted, local police ruled the death a suicide. On learning of Pugh's demise, Inyo County DA Frank Fowles made official inquiries, specifically asking Interpol to check visas to detrmine if one Bruce Davis was in England at the time. Scotland Yard replied as follows: "It has been established that Davis is recorded as embarking at London airport for the United States of America on 25th April 1969 while holding United States passport 612 2568. At this time he gave his address as Dormer Cottage, Felbridge, Surrey. This address is owned by the Scientology Movement and houses followers of this organization." END OF HELTER SKELTER QUOTES So now we have TWO Members of the Manson Family who had been Scientologists, Charlie and Bruce. Was Bruce Davis an EX? Why was he living at a Scientology house? Did these people die as a result of Scientology trying to hide the Manson connection? Is there more to the Manson-Scientology connection that has yet to be revealed? It would not surprise me. This was all LONG before my involvement with Scientology but there are probably people out there who were there at the time. Can anyone contribute more information?
