More and more details are pouring out about Johnny Lewis' life and each is more surprising than the next.
The 28-year-old former Sons of Anarchy star was found dead in an El Lay driveway after falling or jumping from the roof. Inside the house, authorities discovered his 81-year-old landlady AND cat had been murdered.
In a truly disgusting description, sources say he actually didn't just beat the poor animal, but was "tearing it apart" in a wild, drug-induced state.
His father, Michael Lewis, is in such high-standing with the Church that he actually co-wrote a movie with L. Ron Hubbard in the 80s!
Although the Church has already distanced themselves from Johnny by removing his picture and any mention of him on their website, he was an active member of the Church for years. Instead of enrolling in rehab for his drug abuse, he participated in the Scientology version called Narconon.
Back in 2004, he even spoke on behalf of the program at a substance abuse prevention event in Orange County. Unfortunately, he did not practice what he preached and was not able to prevent future abuse.
We think it's kinda effed up that the Church is just pretending Johnny wasn't a member of the congregation and trying to erase his past, but in no way believe his actions reflect poorly upon the controversial religion.
Of all the things people like to blame Scientology for, this should not be one of them.
There is only one person to be held accountable in this bizarre homicide and he has already paid the ultimate price for his actions.
