From ars and Factnet:
"Has Mr. Miscavige ever been married or been seen in the company of
> women? Does he have any children?"
"He at least was married to a woman named Shelly, the daughter of Flo
Barnett/Miller, a woman who supposedly committed suicide under strange
circumstances. Not that being married says much about orientation in
Davey's circle of friends. "
Here is an account by Jesse Prince:
J: The first thing that I'll speak on is [Reading] "Flo Barnett, a.k.a.
Miller, who died from several gunshot wounds. She was David Miscavige's
mother-in-law. Just before her death she was reported to have had an
argument with David Miscavige and threatened to go public and sue
Scientology." What I know about this, I guess happened right during the
time of her death, no, actually, it was a little bit before because I
was auditing Shelly Miscavige.
L: Shelly is one of his twin sisters?
J: Shelly Miscavige is David Miscavige's wife, or was during that time
period, I assume she still is. I was doing auditing on her, and she
brought up the fact that she had a black person in her family. She
proceeded to tell me about this, that her father-in-law was black, and
living with her mother. She told me that they seemed to get along very
well, he was one person that understood her and took care of her. She
said that some people said that he took her money. She mentioned to me
that he just had a job fixing things, he would go out and fix things
for people. He didn't have a regular like 9-5 job where he went out and
reported to. As far as she could see, he took care of her mother very
well. She was happy to have a black person in there. She mentioned that
Dave Miscavige had met him and wasn't very approving of him, other
family members kind of shunned the mother.
L: The mother is Flo Barnett?
J: Yes, because she was married to this black person. Then, Pooh, who I
only know as Pooh and Sarge, which is Shelly's sister, who was one of
the two couples that were with L. Ron Hubbard at the ranch shortly
before and during, and all the time before and during and after his
death, working as his personal maids, servant people. Then, I remember
talking with her and speaking to David Miscavige after the woman had
died. Whereby I had already known that David Miscavige didn't care for
the father-in-law, but then Shelly told me - and she wasn't as
talkative about it as she had talked to me about other things, because
she would speak to me all the time - but she told me that her mother
had committed suicide and had shot herself several times with a rifle.
I just looked at her dead in the eye and said, "How in the hell can a
person kill themselves and take a rifle and shoot themselves several
times." She just looked at me and said, "I don't know, I really don't
know how she died, but she had several gunshot wounds." She said that
Dave Miscavige was saying that the father-in-law did it. Well, she
didn't believe the father-in-law did it, because they loved each other.
She was quite upset about it. I couldn't get her to talk about. I was
the person auditing her, so you know, we do all of these Scientology
routines you know.
L: She wouldn't talk at all about it?
J: No, she was just kind of in a state of deep sadness. She cried quite
a bit over it. It just didn't make sense that her mother shot herself
more than one time with a damn rifle. And how that could even happen,
she just wouldn't talk beyond that, beyond just is there an error,
she'd break about it, is there a problem, is there a withold about it,
that kind of thing.
L: What about -
J: - locating all of this stuff to alleviating it.
L: Did you hear anything between a conflict between David and the
mother-in-law? Did you hear anything that would say this is true or
not, the idea that she was getting auditing from David Mayo and David
Miscagive was very upset about it? Did you hear anything like that?
J: Yes, yes, yes, now that you bring this up. You see, because during
this time period is when we had Bob Mithoff in there as a plant, with
David Mayo and it was known that Flo was messing around with these
people, receiving stuff. Yes, it was. Yes, he was upset about that."
