Scientology Accuses A&E, Leah Remini of Inciting Church Murder - 2019-01-14
A grisly attack that left one 24-year-old Scientologist dead and another 16-year-old church member behind bars is being blamed by the organization on Leah Remini and her A&E docuseries Scientology and the Aftermath.
The incident occurred on Jan. 4 outside Scientology headquarters in Sydney, Australia. The victim, Chih-Hen Yeh, originally from Taiwan, was a Scientology security worker. Yeh was escorting a female church member to a "purification ceremony" when the woman's teenaged son stabbed him in the neck with a large kitchen knife, according to the Sydney Morning Herald. Yeh died later in a hospital emergency room.
The assailant's name is being withheld. Charged with murder, he is currently being held without bail and awaits a Feb. 19 children's court appearance.
