Scientology officials panicked about overdose death of star Narconon pupil: Boyfriend - 2016-03-04
In November, we told you about the death of Tabatha Lynn Fauteux, a 26-year-old New Hampshire woman who was found dead in a Los Angeles apartment, apparently of a drug overdose. She had been staying at the apartment with a boyfriend for several weeks while the two of them underwent training in the Church of Scientology's revamping of its drug rehab program, Narconon. Before they went to L.A. for the training, the two of them had been working together at Narconon's clinic in Harlingen, Texas and had each been sober for about a year.
Tabatha died on November 6, and for our story later that month, we talked to her father, Guy Fauteux, 52, who was still struggling to get details about his daughter's death. He was unhappy that he was getting little information from Scientology and Narconon, and he also hadn't heard from Los Angeles or California authorities. But he had heard from Tabatha's friends that while she was in L.A. she had used an herbal drug known as kratom, a legal substance which produces a high something like the heroin addiction she had sought treatment for. As we pointed out in our story, there have been increasing reports of overdose deaths with kratom because it can be laced with powerful, synthetic drugs.
Now, the Underground Bunker has spoken to Tabatha's boyfriend, who was with her in Los Angeles. Guy Fauteux confirmed the young man's identity for us, but we are holding back the boyfriend's real name at his request and will refer to him as Nick.
