Gregory B. Wisner, age 27, was identified as the person whose body was found in the surf near Indian Rocks Beach, FL, on January 20, 2001.
- - From the Report of Autopsy:
"The decedent had tried to stop using cocaine and had mentioned "cleansing" himself to a close friend. Perhaps this is the reason for his visit to the ocean. The cocaine intoxication may have contributed to his drowning. The manner of death is accident."- John R. Thogmartin, M.D., Chief Medical Examiner Gregory Wisner was raised in Scientology households, but more recently had become subject to Scientology's disconnection policy. His father, R. Michael Wisner, is a prominent Scientologist and spokesperson for the 'virtues' of Narconon's procedures, and is co-author of a study claiming that toxic damage to nervous tissue can be reduced with Mr. Hubbard's protocol.

Michael Wisner is also the author of a book, Living Healthy in a Toxic World, featured here: http://psychfraud.freedommag.org/page43.htm This book features an introduction by Kirstie Alley.
R. Michael Wisner evidently had minimal contact with his son in recent years. The last meeting between father and son was described as an argument. He did not attend his son's funeral.
Gregory Wisner's mother, Helen, married Herb Zerden when Gregory was quite young. Helen and Herb are active Clearwater, FL area Scientologists. Herb Zerden has been documented working with local FaRT and Bigotwatch founder Mary DeMoss, in her harassment campaign of Scientology critics.
The last conversation between Gregory Wisner and his mother was described as an argument. His mother told police that she thought her son was off at a drug treatment program, and therefore did not suspect anything strange when he disappeared. She also told police she was aware that he had a problem with cocaine.
Gregory Wisner attended Narconon in December 1997.
