Alive, but only just, Heather Landmeier blinks to communicate from a vegetative state.


She has almost no control of her body below her neck and will be fed through a tube for the rest of her life.

Landmeier, 27, overdosed on heroin and Oxycontin at a Tulsa hotel in March 2008. A day earlier, she was dismissed from Narconon Arrowhead, a state-licensed non-medical drug detoxification facility in Pittsburg County, records show.

Landmeier's family alleges in court documents that her dismissal was related to drugs and alcohol provided to her by Narconon staff.

"Heather believed Narconon would be the start on her road to recovery," said Landmeier's younger sister, Hilary Landmeier. "Our family believed that as well. We put our trust in them. They truly made us believe that."

Landmeier's case is part of a controversy that surrounds Narconon, a southeast Oklahoma center that uses practices commonly associated with Scientology and the teachings of L. Ron Hubbard.

Since October, there have been three confirmed deaths related to the facility. Since 2005, there have been four other deaths - three of which were on the premises, according to state records.

The most recent death was Stacy Murphy, a 20-year-old from Owasso, on July 19. In the days after she died, at least two state agencies and Pittsburg County authorities have been investigating the facility.

The center faces claims of violating state mental health facility statutes and consumer protection law, authorities said.

We've posted about Jean here. He was a staff member there. Jean Lefitte died at his home. Committed suicide. Was found by Derry Halmark, Narconon Arrowhead staff member. Perhaps his 'hoime' was on the property of Narconon Arrowhead?
