Scientology to the rescue: After losing son and wife, Johnny Lewis's dad is happier than ever - 2020-07-25
On September 26, 2012, Sons of Anarchy actor Johnny Lewis went on a rampage, killing his 81-year-old landlord Cathy Davis and her cat, then attacking a gardener and a neighbor before either falling or jumping to his death at the Los Feliz home where he'd been living for a few days. It was the sad culmination to a series of violent incidents since he'd left the FX show after the 2009 season.
Lewis was the son of two OT 8 Scientologists, Michael and Divona Lewis, and over the years Michael's advertisements as a Scientology field disseminator have appeared here at the Bunker on occasion.
Michael Lewis told Los Angeles magazine that Scientology's famous hatred for psychiatry had not been at fault in his son's death. "[Michael] discounts that assumption, claiming that he pursued and encouraged psychiatric treatment for his son. It was Johnny who refused to comply."
