Type: Press
Source: Brisbane Times
AAP – The mysterious death of a young soldier was likely to remain a mystery until the Church of Scientology chooses to release its file on its extended dealings with him, a defence commission of inquiry has found. There's no dispute that Private Edward McBride, 30, took his own life in Brisbane on February 7, 2007.

The 110,000-volt electric charge that killed Edward McBride was so strong it caused an explosion capable of causing flash burns up to 10 metres away. Witnesses who saw it at the Energex substation in Everton, in Brisbane's north, two years ago likened it to fireworks that glowed red long after the Brisbane soldier's life had ended.

Type: Press
Author(s): Frank Walker
Source: Brisbane Times
SCIENTOLOGY, the religion of stars such as Tom Cruise, John Travolta and Kate Ceberano, is growing so fast the church wants to add four floors to its Sydney headquarters.
