I read this on a list today. It seems genuine. I have excerpted it from an e-mail sent by Ken's girlfriend:He was found dead today, on May 29, in the pool of his house. When
the police took his body out, his hands were tied with a wire, and a
heavy concrete thing attached to his feet.
That she was well-known to Ken has been authenticated by someone I trust.
I couldn't find anything in Google News when I looked just now.
And this from ars:
Ken Ogger, known as "The Pilot", a pioneer of the
Free Zone, was found drowned in the pool of his house
in LA on the 29th of May 2007.
His hands were tied with wire and a heavy concrete
weight held his legs down.
The police is investigating.
Ken Ogger was known as the author of analyses about
the Church of Scientology's mismanagement and author
of auditing manuals. After his own wife betrayed his
identity to the church, he suffered a breakdown and
soon afterwards went through a severe health crisis.
On 20th of May 2007 he reported back to his newsgroups
in his old dynamic way. He published a series of texts
in which he told about his physical recovery, about his
plans to become active as "Pilot" again, but also about
the Church of Scientology's attacks on his private life.
Nine days later he was dead.
