Defendant in Park Murder Tried to Join Scientologists - 1987-10-06
Mr. Chambers, who is accused of murdering 18-year-old Jennifer Levin during a sexual encounter in Central Park in August 1986, visited the Celebrity Center on East 82d Street in October 1985 and March 1986, said a Scientology official, John Carmichael.
The church on both occasions rejected applications for counseling from Mr. Chambers, now 21 years old, Mr. Carmichael said. He said the organization gave the center its name because well-known people attend programs there, including, he said, the actor John Travolta and the jazz musician Chick Corea.
Mr. Carmichael said the organization would provide the records "unless there's a court order that says we shouldn't."
