Scientology leader’s dad said to sign book deal


The father of Church of Scientology leader David Miscavige has reportedly signed a deal to write a book about his son’s life. But the working title, “If He Dies, He Dies,” suggests the story may not be a flattering one.

The words refer to an account given by another father and son, Dwayne and Daniel Powell, who told police in 2013 they were hired to conduct close surveillance of Miscavige’s father, Ron Miscavige Sr.

The elder Miscavige had left the Scientology staff in 2012 and was living in Wisconsin.

In separate interviews with police in West Allis, Wisconsin, the Powells said they worked at the behest of David Miscavige and once saw his father, in his late 70s, grasp his chest and slump over while loading his car. Fearing it was a heart attack, the Powells called an intermediary for instructions and got a return call, they said, from David Miscavige. They said he told them to stay back.

Daniel Powell quoted David Miscavige as saying, “If he dies, he dies. Don’t intervene.”


This sounds like quite a bombshell. I think this is the first book written about David Miscavige ever.

I hope Ronald Sr has got his book written, and backed up, and locked in a bank vault just to be on the safe side, or the title might be prophetic.
