Twenty years ago today: The final hours of Lisa McPherson's Scientology life - 2015-12-05
Laura had trained to be a doctor in Mexico, and had completed her coursework and a two-year residency, but had stopped short of taking the board exam to become a physician. Ten years later, she was working in the Sea Org at Scientology's Flag Land Base in its medical liaison office. She had first been asked to work a shift with Lisa McPherson on the day after Thanksgiving.
A week later, she was working with Rita Boykin and Heather Hoff while being overseen by Janis Johnson. Laura's shifts started in the late afternoon and went until the early morning. And on Lisa's final two nights, Laura witnessed a disturbing sight.
