Yeah. Actually, if I remember correctly, she was a scientologist involved in a minor car crash, but after the crash she got out of the car and started to take off all her clothes and mumble incoherently. They took her to the hospital where the doctors said she was physically fine, but told her they need to send her to a psychiatrist to be mentally analyzed. A couple scientologists showed up, said she didn't believe in psychiatry, and they took her away to some place for a process called "Introspection Rundown". Where they basically incarcerate them, muzzle all attendants to them so no one talks to her. Unless it's during the countless 'auditing' sessions where the 'real' cause of the mental illness is caused.
About a month after she was taken she was dropped at a hospital with severe dehydration and malnutrition and all kinds of bruises including cockroach bites, she didn't even make it into the hospital before she died.
Now, because of this, every member of scientology has to sign a release form that says they can take you for the introspection rundown and are not legally responsible for any harm done to you during that time.
Under Scientology, schizophrenics have murdered their family members, and many have committed suicide, because their 'religion' does not allow them to take proper medication. I remember one story about a guy who suffered from epilepsy not allowed to take his prescription meds. During a seizure, he fell and hit his head and died as a result.
Just more truths the cult doesn't want its members to know about, so I'm not surprised the mindless freaks in the video never heard of Lisa McPherson.
