BREAKING: LEAH REMINI FILES MISSING-PERSON REPORT ON SCIENTOLOGY LEADER’S WIFE | Tony Ortega
— Tony Ortega (@TonyOrtega94) August 8, 2013
Leah Remini has taken a surprising new step, the Underground Bunker has learned.
After speaking with the Los Angeles Police Department, we have confirmed that on Wednesday Remini filed a missing-person report for Scientology leader David Miscavige’s wife, Shelly Miscavige, who has not been seen in public in six years.
From Tony Ortega:
LAPD Officer Gregory Baek tells us that detectives have made contact with Shelly Miscavige and now consider the case closed and classified as “unfounded.”
(That news started filtering out a few hours ago, first with an unnamed LAPD source to the New York Daily News.)
But here’s the thing. Our sources tell us that Leah Remini, who filed the report earlier this week, had not been briefed by the LAPD and was told the case was still open late this afternoon.
We asked Officer Baek — Would the LAPD begin telling the press and public that the case was closed without briefing the person who made the missing-person report?
“That depends on the situation and the case, and the detective will decide which will get first,” he told us. “I don’t know exactly what happened.”
Well, that’s reassuring.
So the public still has no confirmation on where Shelly Miscavige is, what condition she’s in, and why she hasn’t been seen at church events in the last seven years.
And Leah Remini, as far as we know, has received no answers to her questions.
WHERE IS SHELLY MISCAVIGE?
