A Scientologist is brutally murdered in Peoria, but you didn't hear it from Scientology - 2019-05-21
When she told us what she found, we checked with Scientology's records, and sure enough, there it was.
Antonio Ramirez Barron, the brutally killed father, was a longtime and deeply involved Scientologist.
Left behind in a closet was a stack of "The Basics," sets of books and lectures that in 2007 all Scientologists were under heavy pressure to buy in multiple quantities, at about $3,000 a set. (Many of the sets of books that church members felt obliged to buy that year sit in closets or garages unopened to this day.)
