When I'm working on editing the text files from the Lisa
McPherson investigation files, every now and then something
catches my eye and makes me want to post it to a.r.s.
Here's something from a police report dated April 15, 1997, TIF
files 1953.TIF and 1954.TIF:
On April 11, 1997, I was informed by Det. Richard Howard that Andrea Catt had called from England, requesting to speak with one of the investigators handling the Lisa McPherson case. On April 14, 1997, I called Catt at [phone number]. Catt stated she might have some useful information regarding Lisa McPherson. Catt said she had been on the Internet and noticed we were having difficulties finding some witnesses. Catt said there is a reason for us not locating the witnesses. Catt stated she is no longer a Scientologist, however in 1994 she was on Staff in Dorset, England as a Registrar (sales person), collecting moneys for the Church. Catt said she was working for the Bournemouth Mission in Dorset. Catt said during 1993 and 1994 the Poole Police, in Dorset county were investigating The Church of Scientology for financial crimes. Catt said the financial crimes were fraudulent bank loans. Catt stated the Church provided Attorney Peter Hodkin for her interviews in 1993. Catt said Hodkin had prior knowledge of the interviews and told her what to say. Catt stated in July of 1995 the Police wanted to interview Catt again. Catt believes the Church had an insider (Police Officer Rod Hawkins) working at Poole Station, because the Church found out about the up coming interviews. (Catt stated she can not prove Hawkins was working for the Church) Catt stated she was immediately made to disappear by Church orders. Catt said the Office of Special Affairs ordered her and her husband out of the country within twenty four hours. Catt stated she was taken to Denmark so the Police could not interview her. Catt was told there was not enough evidence to extradite her from Denmark. Catt said this was done to thwart the investigation. Catt believes we are facing the same problems as the Poole Police. Catt stated if need be she is willing to testify to what she knows.
