Los Angeles Police Closes Inquiry Into Scientology Leader’s Wife

LAPD closes inquiry into Scientology leader's wife.

The Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) has closed the inquiry into the whereabouts of the wife of David Miscavige, Church of Scientology chief.

Actress Leah Renini, who left Scientology, filed a missing person report on behalf of Shelly Miscavige claiming she had not been seen in public in six years, according to a source close to the star.

The LAPD will not confirm who claimed the report or when it was filed, but in a statement, Police Detective Gus Villanueva said the investigation is closed as they consider the report to be unfounded.

However, he did not give details regarding the report or why it was closed.

Shelly Miscavige’s whereabouts have come under suspicion especially to critics of the Church of Scientology. The organization relies heavily on the many celebrities that belong to their rank.

Tom Cruise and John Travolta are two of the most famous names that belong to Scientology.

The New York Post reported that Leah Remini came under attack when she questioned Miscavige’s wife’s whereabouts after she didn’t attend Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes’ wedding in 2006.

As previously reported by The Inquisitr, former Village Voice Editor Tony Ortega, says that Shelly Miscavige was allegedly transferred from the International Base of the Church to a secret compound near Lake Arrowhead in late 2005 or early 2006.

Miscavige hasn’t been seen since 2007, but has supposedly been working “non stop” at the compound, according to the Church of Scientology.

“This is just harassment,” the church said in a statement. “It is a publicity stunt cooked up by a small band of unemployed fanatics who live on the fringe of the Internet.”

Remini became disenchanted with the church after Cruise’s wedding when she questioned Miscavige’s whereabouts and was told, “You don’t have the f***ing rank to ask about Shelly.”

The Church of Scientology believes man is an immortal being whose experience extends beyond one lifetime.
