Decapitation at Golden

Post by D-Rad » Sun Oct 15, 2006 4:26 am

I was working at a job in Hemet this week and started talking about little Davey's place up the road. One of the finish carpenters told of an incident that happened to a friend of his about two years ago along Gilman Hot Springs road. It seems that Scientology was having some late night road work done and the Skip Loader operator wasn't paying attention to oncoming traffic. As he turned around in the roadway he ran into an oncoming car and decapitated one of the occupants and just missed an infant in the car. The carpenter's buddy happened upon the incident just after it happened and saw the lady in the front seat without a head. The story never made it into the paper. Maybe somebody that lives there in Hemet can look into it a little further and see if there is any truth to this story.

Hi D-Rad,

I read this story a while back too... and I looked for it and couldn't find it. BTs4Free, chuckbeatty, anyone remember this?

Too sad what happened to that lady, it is chilling.

It's bad enough that Scientology kills its own followers. Horribly, an equally gruesome homicide took place that same year right outside of the fortified compound. This time it was an innocent child who was beheaded by a tractor running on the Highway 79 without lights, without warning flags, and without any safety crews. Ashlee Shanner came around a bend on Highway 79 right around where Scientology's "Golden Era Productions" property begins and drove straight into the shovel on the tractor, being decapitated apparentlu due to Scientology's total disreguard for the public's safety. It later turned out that the driver of the tractor didn't even have a diver's license.

RTC complains about me picketing many days since June. but they do not say where or why. These pickets mostly occurred at "Gold Base," a difficult to escape from compound near Hemet, California. The pickets were in response to two recent deaths there. The first was Ashlee Shaner, a 16 year old high school student, who was killed May 17, 2000 as a result an RTC related part of Scientology requiring a contractor to work late. For some reason an unlighted piece of equipment could not be left till morning, but had to be driven at night on a public highway where Ashlee collided with a front loader bucket being used to block a lane of traffic (and was decapitated). A copy of the accident report is included as Exhibit B. (sealed since an indictment is pending)

SPECIAL INTERROGATORY NO. 11:
May 17, 2000 Ashlee Shaner was killed when she ran her vehicle into a front loader attempting to block the public road through Golden Era so an unlighted paving machine could cross the road and be parked. Defendant has information that the reason the paving machine was being moved after dark was because RTC chairman David Miscavige was returning that night about half an hour after Ashlee Shaner was decapitated by the front loader's blade. Defendant has been told that the panic to get certain grounds work completed before Mr. Miscavige's return caused the paver to be moved after dark. Is this information is not essentially correct please correct it.
_______

Was there usually a panic to get grounds work completed before Mr. Miscavige returned or was this time (that cost a young woman her life) an exception?

The specific reason they are here and hassling my wife is that I have been picketing at their desert base in Southern California over their callous disregard for human life. A contractor who they claim was working without being given direction (not likely, they micromanage everything) was driving an unlighted front loader after dark on the highway which cuts through their property. He turned the front loader into oncoming traffic. Ashlee Shaner, a 16 year old high school girl ran her car into the blade and was cut in half. Her 8 year old sister ducked under the blade and was not seriously hurt. Her mother was in another car a little ways behind her daughter

Arraignment: Ashlee Shaner died after hitting a tractor operated by Thomas Nove of Moreno Valley By Erin D. Randolph The press Enterprise
Hemet: A man involved in a traffic collision that killed a l6 year old San Jacainto girl pleaded not guilty to a charge of vehicular manslaughter Wednesday .

Thomas Nove 35, of Moreno Valley was taken into custody on an unrelated matter following the arraignment in Hemet.

He is charged with misdemeanor vehicular manslaughter in connection with the death of Ashlee Shaner last year. She was killed the night of May l7 when her car crashed into the bucket of a tractor that was blocking Gilman Springs Road. She was returning to her an Jacinto home from an evening bible study class.

Nove told police he was trying to park the vehicle but had blocked the road with the tractor to allow a paving vehicle to cross the highway, according to court records.

He told investigators that he saw two cars coming toward him but thought they would pull onto the road shoulder. Instead, Ashlee's car crashed into the tractor, killing her. Ashlee's sister Klarissa, then 8, ducked moments before impact and suffered minor injuries.

Ashlee's mother, Michelle Shaner, who was following her daughter home that night, told investigators the tractor was not visible.

Nove told officers he was working late the night Ashlee died to finish some work for the Church of Scientology's Golden Era Productions.

According to an investigation report, Nove, who was employed with Taseco Corp, a Redlands-based contractor, had an expired driver's license since l992. During the investigation, California Highway Patrol Officer Eric Nolte said no warning lights, flares or construction workers were on the road to guide motorists around the tractor. There were no street lights in the area.

And from Wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gold_Base# ... _Gold_Base

There is a prohibition on picketing Gold Base stemming from activist Keith Henson's picketing in 2000. Although critics hold the provision is unconstitutional, it has not been challenged in recent years. Henson picketed the secretive and heavily-armed [8] Gold Base compound over the unusual deaths of a Scientologist, Stacy Moxon Meyer, and a non-Scientologist, Ashlee Shaner.

Meyer, the daughter of Scientology attorney Kendrick Moxon, adverse counsel in many lawsuits involving Henson, died in a bizarre and gruesome accident in an underground electrical vault at the Gold Base. In a horrific coincidence, when Stacy Moxon Meyer was dying underground in the electrical vault, picketers above ground were protesting the previous death of Ashlee Shaner in a ghastly decapitation which occurred at the Gold Base when Scientology was moving construction equipment on the highway at night without lights and in the wrong lane.

Thanks guys, I'm glad to see that the story could be substantiated. Too bad it was a true story and a little girl ended up being killed :cry:
