TEN YEARS GONE: Shelly Miscavige, the wife Scientology’s leader wants us to forget

  It was late summer 2005. That much our sources agree on. It might have been late August, or it might have been early September. But it was a full ten years ago, say our eyewitness sources, that Shelly Miscavige vanished.
