Yes, That is him! I read these articles and coudl not believe that Narconon was never metioned. He was a student at Narconon, A staff member of Narconon, a resident of Narconon and was found dead practically across the street from Narconon. I am so upset that this case seemd to be pretty cut and dry to the police. I actually found out about his death this morning on teh Channel 2 News. I went straight to my computer to get more information about it and have spent most of my work day trying to find a way to get someone to listen and look into it. Since i am not a family member (nor do I know his family) i don't know what rights i have. Something has to be done about these facilities.
I'm writing a new chapter in my life. I'm in a better place now than I've ever been before (and that's saying a lot). I'm confident and sure of myself again and most of all I believe in myself like never before. In everything I do I choose the right choice or better choice and it keeps me happy.
I could not convince him to leave Narconon. He really thought that they had his best interest in mind. When we last spoke on August 11,2012 he said he was going to talk to one of the counselors and they would know what to do. 24 hours later his body was found by police.
They found him in a "pool of blood" but attribute his death to cocaine use?
Ritter said the medical examiner found no fatal injuries, just cuts and bruises to his arms and legs. The man's body was also muddy indicating he may have been in the lake behind the office building before he died.
"During the initial investigation, the homicide unit was called in to investigate after officers discovered several head injuries on the body of the white male."
...anyone with information on the man's death should call detectives at 770-513-5300.
When Narconon took him on as a staff member he was not paid much but in return they did provide him with housing. the same housing he was staying in as a patient. If he left Narconon he would be out of a home and a job. I could not convence him to leave Narconon. He really thought that they had his best interest in mind. When we last spoke on August 11,2012 he said he was going to talk to one of the counselors and they would know what to do. 24 hours later his body was found by police.

In the past seven months we have treated 13 patients who had sustained intracerebral haemorrhage and had misused one or more of these illegal substances. Ten of the patients were well enough to undergo cerebral angiography. We were surprised to find intracranial aneurysm in six and arteriovenous malformations in three. In only one patient was the angiogram normal. These nine patients subsequently underwent surgery or interventional radiological treatment for these abnormalities. The average age of the 13 patients was 31 years (range 19-43 years).
PEACHTREE CORNERS -- Toxicology tests show a 39-year-old man whose body was found two months ago in a Peachtree Corners office park died of cocaine use, the Gwinnett County Medical Examiner's Office said Tuesday.Ronald Corona, a former pharmacist turned drug counselor, was found by a cleaning company employee about 2:30 a.m. on Aug. 13 behind a business at 25 Technology Parkway.The employee reported that Corona lay face down in a pool of blood. Gwinnett police initially called his death suspicious, but an autopsy showed that Corona did not die from any sort of trauma.Ted Bailey, chief forensic investigator, said Tuesday the "toxic effects" of cocaine killed Corona. Police said Corona had moved to Georgia from Pennsylvania in November and that his mother had reported him missing prior to his death.Corona was carrying no identification, and police resorted to releasing photographs of his tattoos to learn his name.According to an obituary published Aug. 30 in the Scranton Times, Corona graduated magna cum laude from Boston's Northeastern University in 1997. He landed a job as pharmacist in Philadelphia before moving to the Gwinnett area last year, where he worked as a counselor at Narconon of Georgia.An inquiry with that company was not immediately returned Tuesday.

QuoteAn inquiry with that company was not immediately returned Tuesday.And so the "Ron who?" from NN GA starts. Any bets on how long it takes them to trot out the "Disgruntled employee who left ages ago" line??
I Knew that guy.Ron (the one who died)was like their star freakin student..He graduated and went on staff.He DID relapse that is a fact.They caught him drinking alcohol at the center.He also called me asking to get him drugs (I had already graduates)a couple weeks before he died...Anyways I thought it was weird how he died he wasnt from Georgia.I know he hhad blunt trauma to the head and his doc was crack...It really shook The center up when Ron died like I said he was star student/staff...Those Scienos loved Him.
According to a former patient who knew him, he was well-liked at Narconon.
