I came across the following list of Scientology related deaths in the
Clearwater area. Not all of them are suspicious, but I was thinking maybe
contributors to the group might have some insights into these people. I
have some records on them, but no info from people who knew them. I'll be
posting some details from public records in the next few weeks. This list
includes only cases the Medical Examiner's office has handled. They do not
handle the overwhelming majority of deaths, perhaps 5%. Here's my guess at
a glossary of the abbreviations.

Case = District 6 Case Number
DOD = Date of Death
COD = Cause of Death
MOD = Manner of Death
Acc = Accident
Undet = Undetermined
A/A = Automobile Accident
Asphx = Asphyxiation
Dehyd = Dehydration
SUD = Sudden Unexpected Death

* Uncertain relationship to COS

I should comment about Carrie Slaughterbeck, who died quite recently, in
March of '97. The cause of her "Sudden Unexpected Death" is listed as
"mitral valve prolapse". Her boyfriend said she was overly thin, and
suffered from bulemia. He found her dead in her apartment in front of her
computer. No foul play was suspected in this case, she was not reported to
be in the care of Scientologists, and the only substance found in her body
was caffeine.
