David Miscavige, the head of Scientology, has reportedly been receiving a barrage of death threats, which has included a man repeatedly calling the main number for Scientology to threaten him.
According to TMZ, a police investigation is now underway to try and track down the man who has been making these threats to David Miscavige.
The death threats first started to occur in July when the man called Scientology’s main number in Hollywood, and he then made several explicit comments and threats that were directed towards Miscavige.
This included the following harrowing remarks, “Tell David that we are going to kill him,” “We are going to assassinate Mr. Miscavige and every single one of you,” as well as, “You tell your leader, who is an a*****e and a motherf*****, he is going to be shot pretty soon.”
Investigators have reportedly gathered quite a bit of information on the man responsible for these phone calls. That’s because the phone operator was able to keep the individual on the line for two hours and 55 minutes. They have now been able to get a lot of his identification information, which includes his Skype address.
This information has since been passed onto LAPD’s Major Crimes Unit, and they’ve even located and identified one man that they are keen to speak to regarding these death threats. According to TMZ, LAPD officials are now on the hunt for a Jewish businessman; however, it’s still not known if any arrests have actually been made in connection to the case.
55-year-old David Miscavige has been the head and leader of Scientology since 1987. His official title is Chairman Of The Board Of Religious Technology Center, and he rose to this after working as the deputy to the church’s founder, L. Ron Hubbard.
According to Raw Story, the religion of Scientology offers its followers a “precise path leading to a complete and certain understanding of one’s true spiritual nature and one’s relationship to self, family, groups, Mankind, all life forms, the material universe, the spiritual universe and the Supreme Being.”
However, the church of Scientology has been swamped in controversy over the last few years, with critics insisting that, even though it has actually gained legal recognition as a religion, Scientology is actually a cult that exploits its members for financial reward. Famous Scientologists include Tom Cruise, John Travolta, Isaac Hayes, Jenna Elfman, Jason Lee, Juliette Lewis, and Michael Pena.
