Reports have shone a spotlight on the wife of David Miscavige, leader of the Church of Scientology, who has been missing since 2006. Shelly Miscavige hasn't been seen by anyone for years, even though she was the one who played matchmaker between Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes on behalf of the church. Since we could find a clear enough pic of David's wife, here's one of him posing next to his substitute:
Anyways, attorneys for the church have denied that David's wife is missing, claiming that "...Any reports that she is
missing are false ... Mrs. Miscavige has been working non-stop in the
Church, as she always has." Nevertheless, there is a debate among former Scientologists as to whether Shelly is being held against her will.
Steve Hall, a former Scientologist who left the church after 17 years at its international management level, spoke to Business Insider recently about where Shelly Miscavige might be. He claims Shelly is being held at Scientology's little-known "Church of Spiritual Technology," a remote forest compound with prison-like security in Twin Peaks, Calif., near San Bernadino.
They've also posted a couple of pics showing the unsettling "prison-like" place, which shows spikes on the compound's fence facing inwards instead of outwards. View the rest of the creepy pics below:
