Skeptic News: LawSuits pending in Narconon deaths

From: Muskogee Phoniex

An attorney for the families of two patients found dead at Narconon Arrowhead says lawsuits against the facility could be filed next week. Meanwhile, officials await autopsy reports in an investigation into four known deaths tied to the Scientology-based facility.

Narconon Arrowhead is a national nonprofit drug and alcohol rehabilitation center in Canadian.

The facility has been under investigation by Pittsburg County officials, the District 18 District Attorney’s office, the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation and the Oklahoma Department of Mental Health since July when 20-year-old Stacy Murphy was found dead while a patient.

On Thursday, attorney Gary Richardson said lawsuits against the facility could be filed as soon as next week. Richardson represents the families of two Narconon Arrowhead patients, Murphy and Gabriel Graves, who were found dead at Narconon Arrowhead.

Narconon officials have declined comment in the deaths beyond expressing sympathy for the families involved.
