A note on a dagger in a car led police Tuesday to the nude nody of a young woman stabbed to death beneath walls scrawled swastikas and a message reading, "Love is killing the one you love."

Charged with the murder was a former mental patient who police said had barged into the headquarters of the Church of Scientology at dawn Tuesday, brandished a sickle, and fired a rifle shot before being subdued.

John Joseph Reilly II, 3218 Hillside Ave. in Largo was charged with first-degree murder several hours after Clearwater police arrested him in connection with the shooting incident at the church headquarters in the former Fort Harrison Hotel.
