Russell Miller, in his book, 'Bare-Faced Messiah: The True Story of L. Ron Hubbard', wrote:
"Mary Sue screamed for ten minutes when she heard the news. 'It was horrendous,' said Kima Douglas. 'It kept on going. I couldn't believe she could get that much air in her lungs. The only time I had ever really seen her cry before was when Vixie, her Corgi, died and I had to give it mouth-to-mouth resuscitation to try and revive it. The old man didn't cry or get emotional. He was furious - really angry that Quentin had done it.' The Guardian's Office, meanwhile, had moved swiftly to 'handle' the situation. Its local representative in Las Vegas was a pit boss at the Sands Hotel by the name of Ed Walters.
"I had been working as a covert operator for about eight years," he said. 'I had secretly tape-recorded a psychiatrist and got him to talk about lobotomies to try and discredit him and I had bugged the meetings of Clark County Mental Health Association, things like that. I worked on anything that org conceived to be a threat to the Hubbards.
'When they found out Quentin was here, I was told to get hold of all his medical files. There was apparently evidence that he had had a homosexual encounter shortly before he was found and they didn't want anything like that to get out. There was a girl Scientologist working in the hospital in a very secure position and she got all the reports on Quentin and gave them to me and I handed them over to the Guardian's Office.
Quentin was cremated next day at Palm Crematory in Las Vegas. 'I knew he had homosexual problems,' said Ed Walters, 'but he was a good kid. He was just a young, soft boy, not the ruthless, hard-nosed type. He had wanted to get out of Scientology for some time, but you don't just leave something like Scientology. You quit and then instantly become an enemy. He knew his father violently attacked anyone who betrayed him and he knew that the Guardian's Office would be after him as a traitor. He had grown up in Scientology and would have been tremendously afraid of the world out there, full of wogs and evil people. I guess he just couldn't handle it.'
"He was just a miserable, miserable boy,' said Kima Douglas. 'He was a little kid out of his depth who knew he could never compete with his father."http://www.xenu.net/archive/books/bfm/bfm20.htm
Ed later blew the cult, and in 1982, filed an affidavit on the internal operations of the Guardian's Office.http://www.lermanet.com/barwell/edward- ... idavit.txt
I'm curious how Ed Walters, of Las Vegas, knew of Quentin's long time "homosexual problems", and Quentin's body happened to be found in Las Vegas. A source has informed me that Mr. Walters is gay, himself, and Quentin may have gone to LV to meet with Mr. Walters.
Ed is retired from the Sands, but has posted stories on this blog, particularly his friendship with Frank Sinatra.http://www.blue-eyes.com/blog/about/
I've sent Ed Walters a pm with questions about Quentin, but have not yet received a reply..https://www.facebook.com/edwalterslv
