So what I am getting here is that the company is doing poorly, they pick a sucker who has some money and get him to invest (why else would they allow a non-Scio to have a management function in their company?) and when he sees that they have siphoned his money off dishonestly, or that they misrepresented the situation to get him to invest, he says he wants out and wants his money back; he goes to get it, Fowler doesn't have it, Ciancio says he's going legal, Fowler kills him?
That could be the story. It certainly seems all of those elements could easily have been in place. However it's Scientology. There is also the very definite possibility that it's worse than we think.
