A Sheriff's Kind Words About Scientology's Drug Rehab Has Victims' Attorney Riled - 2013-05-24
Three of those lawsuits are in response to the deaths of Gabriel Graves, Hillary Holten, and Stacy Dawn Murphy, three Narconon patients who died in a nine-month period last year. Those deaths not only generated the lawsuits but also a new law recently passed which increases state oversight of the facility. But almost a year after the July 2012 death of Stacy Murphy, we still haven't heard anything about the criminal investigations by Pittsburg County Sheriff Joel Kerns (pictured) and the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation.
Kerns forwarded the results of his investigation to Pittsburg County District Attorney Farley Ward as long ago as October. And last month, on Tulsa television station Fox23, Kerns praised the drug rehab center.
