LOS ANGELES (AP) _ L. Ron Hubbard, a science fiction writer whose often-embattled Church of Scientology has grown to at least 2 million members in three decades, has died at age 74, Scientology officials say.

Hubbard, who had not been seen in public since 1980, died of a stroke Friday at his ranch near San Luis Obispo, Heber Jentzsch, president of the Church of Scientology International, said Monday night.

His ashes were scattered at sea Sunday, after the body was examined by the San Luis Obispo County coroner's office, Scientology officials said.
