An investigation that began looking into rape claims against Danny Masterson, of That 70s Show, has been stalled, despite the fact that a handful of women have come forward.
According to the same article, from HuffPo, Masterson is a Scientologist and they suggest that the church may be trying to have it buried before it gets too big. Three of his accusers are members of the church and it’s well known that reporting crimes outside of the church is prohibited.
According to reports, these were “brutal” against four women, again three of the victims are members of the Church, and apparently, there is some rather interesting evidence which may backup these claims.
We will continue to see more and more of this come to light thanks to the multiple allegations we’ve already seen come out of the swamp.
Yesterday, we reported about the possibility of these accusations not being true in some cases as at least two of the men have admittedly denied what they’re being accused of. So it will be interesting to see where all this goes.
Some of the crew are now on The Ranch, available on Netflix.
Sources close to the LAPD and the Los Angeles County Prosecutor’s office said authorities have “compelling” evidence that Masterson committed at least four brutal rapes in the early 2000s.
The evidence includes audiotapes, emails sent to and from Scientology officers at the time the alleged rapes happened, forensic computer evidence and a threatening handwritten letter Masterson sent to one of the alleged victims, according to two people with knowledge of the evidence in the district attorney’s possession.
In one case from 2003, the victim told the LAPD that she passed out and awoke to find Masterson trying to have sex with her. When she resisted, she claims, Masterson choked her until she passed out again.
But even as the LAPD pursued her case, they met with opposition from the Church of Scientology who intervened in the investigation and sent the LAPD 50 separate, signed affidavits from women, also in the Church, who disputed the victim’s account and supported Masterson.
