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 Case Deceased Race/Sex/Age DOD COD/MOD 1800090 Winkelmann, Margaret W/F/51 Jan 1, 1980 Drown/Suicide 1800449 Havenith, Josephus W/M/45 Feb 24, 1980 Drown/Undet 1820988 Shriver, Millard* W/M/47 May 31, 1982 Coma/Undet 1851574 OstertaR, Andreas W/M/38 Nov 2, 1985 Drown/Acc 1880913 Frei, Peter W/M/37 Jun 30, 1988 Drown/Undet 1881168 Pfaff, Heribert W/M/31 Aug 28, 1988 Seizure/Natural 1921243 Nind, Roger W/M/49 Oct 20, 1992 A/A Trauma/Acc 1950205 Weigand, Douglas W/M/41 Feb 9, 1995 A/A Asphx/Acc 1961442 McPherson, Lisa W/F/36 Dec 5, 1995 Dehyd/Undet 1970425 Slaughterbeck, Carrie W/F/23 Mar 27, 1997 SUD/Natural * 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. -- Rod Keller / email@example.com / Irresponsible Publisher Black Hat #1 / Expert of the Toilet / Golden Gate Bridge Club The Lerma Apologist / Merchant of Chaos / Kha Khan countdown: 9 to go Killer Rod / OSA Patsy / Quasi-Scieno / Mental Bully
