Corey Steele is a helluva guy and would never work for the Church of Scientology!


Earlier today the Underground Bunker posted a story about a man named Corey Steele, who lives in Sherman Oaks — in the very apartment complex where a woman named Amy Scobee lives.

Amy was the subject of a recent episode of Leah Remini: Scientology and the Aftermath, and she’s been experiencing a lot of harassment from the Church of Scientology. She’s been followed and photographed and her image has been plastered on anonymous attack websites that we believe are operated by Scientology.

And so when she saw that there was a man parked outside her apartment recently, spending hours in a red zone and looking in her direction, Amy believed she was being surveilled and photographed again by Scientology. When she went out to photograph the man and his car, she says that he reacted by filming her with his smartphone.

But Corey Steele tells us that he not only lives in the same complex as Amy — something we verified with the complex manager — but he says that he was simply parked there because he likes to sit there and make phone calls while he’s working. He was not there to film Amy, and he was not working for the Church of Scientology.


“I was just in the wrong place at the wrong time, and I would never work for those guys,” he told us.

Corey works for a personal injury attorney, and he says he’s actually a really nice guy. He said being identified in our morning story was very stressful, and for that we apologize.

We completely understand why Amy is wary, given the years of harassment she has been through. Corey acknowledged that we had left a voice mail for him yesterday, and we’re sorry that we didn’t get a chance to talk to him then, or his colleague, attorney Ronald Norman. Again the Underground Bunker apologizes for the confusion.
