I was walking through a local antique store and came upon this ashtrays. Try as I may, I could not get a rise out of any of them! No money was exchanged,so I think that may have been the problem ;)

I haven't heard them named - maybe Colin might know.  Paging Colin Henderson...
I don't have the names, but I have been in contact with one of them. She was the security guard that checked Stacy Murphy upon returning to NN AH after her pass. She was forced to fill out a statement at NN AH to say that she didn't preform a cavity search, once she signed it NN AH fired her. I am still working with her, trying to engorge her to go to the authorities. Its a work in progress.

Deaths At Scientology-Linked Rehab Center Spur Investigation
15 August 2012, 8:07 am

By Radar Staff An Oklahoma rehabilitation center with a controversial regimen -- and ties to Scientology -- is at the center of an investigation after three young patients died there within the last nine months. Deaths at the non-profit, non-medical Narconon Arrowhead , which was founded by Scientology creator L. Ron Hubbard , include 20-year-old Stacy Murphy , 21-year-old Hillary Holton , and ...

Reeling from series of controversies, Scientology is under fire for Narconon ... - Tampabay.com
15 August 2012, 7:56 pm
By Joe Childs and Thomas C. Tobin, Times Staff Writers



Already shaken by a series of high-level defections, accounts of abuse among its staffers, and the high-profile breakup of Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes, the Church of Scientology now faces scrutiny over its controversial drug treatment program, Narconon.

Four deaths at Narconon's signature treatment facility in eastern Oklahoma have prompted local law enforcement and health officials to investigate the center and its program.

The inquiry began after Stacy Dawn Murphy, 20, was found dead in her room on July 19 after returning to the facility from a one-day leave. The cause of death is under investigation.

Two other clients died within the previous nine months. Another died in 2009. In two of those cases, serious health issues were cited; the cause of the other death is unclear.

In April, authorities in Quebec shut down a Narconon facility in the city of Trois Rivieres, saying certain treatment procedures "may represent a health risk.''

Church of Scientology public affairs director Karin Pouw said there is no suggestion the two investigations "have anything to do with Narconon's methods of drug rehabilitation.''

She said media have misrepresented facts about the Oklahoma investigation, but offered no specifics.

As for recent incidents that generated unfavorable publicity for Scientology, Pouw said: "There is no relationship to any of these things, other than the continued growth of the Church and its social and humanitarian programs.''

Here's are some snippets of a terrific article and update from McAlester News Capital's Jeanne LeFlore

August 17, 2012
 
New item in Narconon death investigation-"Pillow with substance on it""
By Jeanne LeFlore
 Staff Writer The McAlester News-Capital

McALESTER — An attorney for the families of two people found dead at Narconon Arrowhead says he’s found items listed on an autopsy report that should be part of the investigation including a ‘pillow with a substance on it.’ “It would be my thought that the investigators would be chasing down these items,” said Tulsa Attorney Gary Richardson.

Richardson, a former United States Attorney and a former Tulsa District Attorney, said he’s representing the families of Stacy Dawn Murphy and Gabriel Graves.[..]

[..]Since her death, the investigation has expanded to include three other deaths; Hillary Holten, 21 of Carr who was found dead at Narconon Arrowhead in April, and Graves, 32, who died at the facility in October along with the 2009 death of Kaysie Dianne Werninck, 28, according to Pittsburg County Sheriff Joel Kerns.

Richardson said while looking into the Narconon death cases he’s found disturbing information including some possible evidence listed on the  state medical examiner’s report.

 He said the two items listed on the ME report were handed to Grave’s mother by the funeral home director. “She still has them in storage,” Richardson said.

“This needs to be part of the investigation.”
Friday afternoon Pittsburg County Sheriff Joel Kerns, said he was sending his investigator to collect the pillow and another item.[..]

Sadly, despite this person's complaint and others like it, very little has been done about Narconon across the U.S., until pressure was brought to bear by activists. More young people will die until they are shut down. The program is not medically sound, has little to no medical oversight, and  puts new clients in the hands of frequently relapsing, new graduates. It is no surprise, under these circumstances, that drug use at Narconon is rampant. The manner in which Narconon uses vitamins and sauna are extremely hazardous to your health!

Make sure you read the complaint linked in this article!

Letter recounts death at Narconon Arrowhead - Tulsa World
18 August 2012, 3:01 am
By Jarrel Wade

State Department of Mental Health officials received a five-page complaint in early December detailing illegal drug use between staff and "students" at a rehabilitation facility near McAlester and the October death of a 32-year-old Claremore man at the facility.

The letter's author, whose name was redacted from a copy supplied through a World open records request, said he was terrified by his month at Narconon Arrowhead, a rehab facility rooted in the teachings of Scientology on the shore of Lake Eufaula.

In his month there, he describes his observations about the death of fellow Narconon student Gabriel Graves.

"I saw the 'nurse' of the facility crying, walking out of (redacted) room with another staffer," the complainant said about his experience on Oct. 26, the day records show Graves died. "I stood there, shocked and scared. ... It was, however, hinted to us that he may have died of a drug overdose because we were told by one of the staff that came to brief us that we might 'end up like him.' "

Graves' autopsy report lists his cause and manner of death as undetermined and unknown, records show.

"It should be noted that while I was there the use and distribution of drugs by 'students' ... and staff was rampant," the complainant wrote to Oklahoma Department of Mental Health and Substance Abuse Services officials.
