The LA County coroner's office says that it is ruling Alexander Jentzsch's death an accident, caused by a methadone dose taken while the young man was sick with pneumonia. Karen de la Carriere says the coroner's office is not done investigating, and she is livid that her son seemed not to be getting proper care for a serious illness while he was cut off from both of his parents by the church.

VILLAGE VOICE EXCLUSIVE: Scientology asked Marc and Claire Headley to spy on Marty Rathbun, and we have the proof. When the Headleys asked to waive the nearly $43K in costs after their recent court defeat, the church asked in return that they become informants and sign over rights to Marc's book, "Blown for Good." We have the lawyer's letter that spells it out. The Headleys, instead, have impoverished themselves rather than become spies for Scientology.

We're wrapping up this summer's big countdown, and in the process noting that Scientology is putting on a big to-do in our nation's capital today. Are you ready for Scientology in your national politics? The church is, apparently.

Voice readers have helped raise $35,000 for the Headleys in just three days after we broke news that the couple had hocked much of what they own rather than spy for Scientology. And much more in our big Sunday post: A report about ABC's lack of spine, our Top 25 countdown nears the end, a big batch of Sunday Funnies, and even L. Ron Hubbard on the high seas. Hee Haw!

VILLAGE VOICE EXCLUSIVE: Paul Haggis e-mailed us this morning after we asked him about Scientology's slimy attack on him and Nazanin Boniadi in Us Weekly yesterday. Read what he has to say about the Vanity Fair article, Boniadi, and Scientology's methods of retaliation.
