An ex-Scientologist has posted online what is believed to be documents from a private investigation regarding the private lives of South Park creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone.
The documents, posted by Marty Rathbun and first picked up by The Village Voice, are from a 2005 investigation that took place shortly after the Comedy Central animated series released an episodes called “Trapped in the Closet,” which mocked Scientology and one of their most notable members, Tom Cruise.
The investigation included rummaging through Stone and Parker’s garbage to obtain phone records, bank records and personal letters, as well as notes and information obtained about Parker and Stone’s friends, including John Stamos and Rebecca Romijn.
Rathbun explains that this first posting is just one many documents related to the investigation. The document he released this past Sunday suggests that Scientology was examining public records on those people, looking for a vulnerability.
“Phone records. Bank records. Personal letters that expose some kind of vulnerability. They’ll read stuff into the kind of alcohol you’re drinking and how much. Prescriptions. They’ll figure out your diet. They can find out a lot about you through your trash,” Rathbun tells ‘The Village Voice.’
It’s probably safe to say nothing ever came of the investigation, however it’s scary to think what these people are capable of!
