Remembering Diane Colletto, Who Would Have Been 60 Today - 2013-04-05
Spanky Taylor asked The Bunker to observe a special anniversary today.
For readers of Lawrence Wright's excellent book, Going Clear: Scientology, Hollywood, & the Prison of Belief, you may remember Colletto's appearance. It's a short and sad tale. Diane Colletto was the editor of The Auditor and held other responsibilities in the church's publications division. Although she was only 25, she was going places. Until, that is, the night of August 19, 1978, when she was brutally murdered right outside Scientology's big headquarters in Los Angeles. But even today, nearly 35 years later, Colletto is still remembered fondly by those who knew her well.
