In her interview with Sarah Edmondson and Anthony Ames for their podcast, A Little Bit Culty, lead prosecutor Moira Kim Penza said of NXIVM and the lack of law enforcement interest in their crimes:
“Frankly, I can’t fully comprehend why law enforcement didn’t act earlier. Of course, this is a very complex case. And I came at it in a world in which I had a very dedicated team. I was at the Eastern District of New York, which has a lot of resources, which has a historical practice of prosecuting these really big racketeering cases. So I had all of that on my side. But I do think it’s a real question that still remains out there as to why nothing was done earlier [by law enforcement in Albany area, i.e. Albany DA, State Police or the feds in the Northern District of NY].”
Nor why Scientology hasn’t been indicted since 1978, when L Ron Hubbard’s wife and 10 top officials of the Church of Scientology were indicted and convicted and sent to federal prison. That’s when Hubbard took off on the lam from the law.
Within a few years, Hubbard was no longer on the run, and he was building a new ranch for himself in Creston, California.
He died in 1986, and within seven years of his death, his Church of Scientology received full tax-exempt status from the same federal government that had sent his wife to prison.
What happened in those intervening years?
Tony Ortega, Mike Rinder and others say the feds have done nothing about Scientology’s murders made to look like suicides because the federal government is afraid of Scientology.
Rinder repeatedly says it’s because “Scientology is a religion” so the government can’t act because of the First Amendment.
But let’s just keep thinking through this, and keep asking questions, shall we?
Warren Jeffs, Sun Myung Moon, and dozens of Catholic priests have all been successfully tried and convicted by state and federal prosecutors – despite the 1st amendment.
I asked Moira Penza on Twitter what she had to say about the death of Kyle Brennan.
I presented her with the evidence of murder at the crime scene:
– Kyle was found dead of a downward trajectory gunshot wound to the top left side of his head in the home of his Scientologist father. Kyle was right-handed.
– 14 pieces of crime scene evidence were wiped clean of fingerprints.
– The gun that killed Kyle Brennan had no blood or fingerprints on it.
– No gunshot residue was found on Kyle Brennan’s hands.
– Kyle’s father called Scientologists Denise Miscavige Gentile and Gerry Gentile to the scene before he called 911
– The bullet that killed Kyle was never found.
– Clearwater police investigators lied repeatedly to members of Kyle’s family.
– Witnesses who were there that night, including David Miscavige’s twin sister Denise Miscavige Gentile, and her husband Gerald Gentile, changed their stories repeatedly in the weeks and months after the incident.
– Kyle Brennan’s computer was wiped clean of all files and was completely empty when it was returned to his family.
Like all federal agents and prosecutors – Moira Penza was completely silent on the murders made to look like suicides by the Church of Scientology. I guess the New York Times hasn’t presented her with the evidence she, or any other prosecutor, needed to build a case.
Here’s the Critical Thinking Question “Nippy” Alludes to in his Interview with Penza:
“Why did NXIVM get completely obliterated by the feds while Scientology remains unindicted since 1978?”

Victoria Britton’s blog is being upgraded in preparation for the publication of her upcoming book on the death of her son, Kyle Brennan.

You didn’t answer my question.
Why are you deflecting?
I have another question: What efforts have you taken to bring about indictments in Kyle Brennan case, including the law enforcement officials and witnesses that you spoke to, and all evidence that you have – real, physical evidence, not conjecture?
Posting about this case in FR is meaningless and you know it. Kyle’s case has already been covered in documentaries – I’ve watched them!
You are not uncovering anything here. And I know you have not taken any real steps in the real world to bring about any indictments.
You still want to please Miscavige so he will let you back into Scientology. There is a reason that none of the ex-Scientologists trust you – none!
So, answer my questions and stop lying to everyone here – you’re not fooling anybody.
Alanzo posts in his own name. I have not seen any evidence of him ever posting anonymously. Allegations, made without evidence, such as that Alanzo spied on people for Miscavige or that he is trying to return to Scientology just can’t be published here anymore.
If there is nothing to be gained by reviewing the death of Brennan, then why all the fuss? Honestly, Sherizzy, a commenter who tries to dissuade the discussion of Brennan’s death on Frank Report, sounds more like someone who wants the matter to go away than someone really concerned that it is all a waste of time – because documentaries did not solve the mystery.
In the meantime, I am interested in evidence – since I do not know the truth about the death of Kyle Brennan and I know enough about people to know that police, who are people after all, are very capable of coverups and lies.
Are you so sure Brennan committed suicide?
No, I’m not convinced that he committed suicide. I just seriously question Alanzo’s motives.
I am sorry that you cannot see Alanzo for who he really is.
I don’t understand how you allow him to insult everyone on your site but act like his bodyguard when people question him.
So, how about you tell him to quit with the nasty insults, as well.
Sherrizy, trolls are good for clicks = ad revenue = money for legal defenses against the feds, etc.
The more you post, the more money he makes.
Right, Sherizzy? Alanzo’s blanket statement wrote that we were all “blind and retarded”. As well as many other both broad and personally directed pejoratives.
The guy insults everyone. Attacks all other commenters. And he’s not even funny. Or particularly smart.
But, alas, we must now be careful of Alanzo’s delicate sensibilities.
And there is no end to the non-factual or evidence-based accusations on this blog.
Alanzo himself casts horrible aspirations on Mike Rinder constantly. And the guy isn’t even present here to defend himself.
Why special treatment for the frail princess of Scientology?
OK, let me get this straight – you’re not convinced Kyle Brennan committed suicide.
Did you read the evidence list I printed above? Did you click on the links I provided and take a look at the hard evidence Victoria Britton provides in this case?
ALL the evidence points to murder and a cover up using Miscavige’s resources on the Clearwater Police Dept.
And yet you attack me personally when I bring this up, trying desperately to distract off of this murder, because you question my motives?
You believe that Miscavige is paying me to detail Kyle Brennan’s murder made to look like suicide all over the Internet.
Please explain why David Miscavige would pay me to do that.
And you never question Mike Rinder who, as the former 22 year head of OSA for David Miscavige, has a blog, 3 seasons of a TV show, and now a podcast in which he NEVER MENTIONS KYLE BRENNAN. EVER. Nor has he ever revealed anything new that other critics haven’t already exposed – and has never even spotlighted a criminal act of any kind that would make his “former” employer exposed to criminal indictment.
And yet his motives remain fully unquestioned by you?
Have you ever actually. personally, thought this through?
I don’t think you have.
If so, please tell me how all this works, exactly.
I wrote a comment defending you. And pointing out that Alanzo called all Frank Report commenters ” blind retards”.
Alanzo has personally insulted many. He has also made sweeping generalizations that are very negative toward all.
Alanzo also makes tons of unfounded, paranoid and unprovable allegations about other commenters’ (so-called) ties to Scientology. It’s really tedious.
There was more. But it was never posted.
The arbitrary censorship is becoming very problematic on this site.
It’s too bad. But I see you, Sherizzy. We all get it.
Okay, Sherizzy. So you are here anonymously warning Frank that Alanzo, whose identity and reporting has never been hidden, isn’t who he claims to be. You say this while hiding your identity.
You are ridiculously arrogant
Oh, Frank. The anonymous posters have come down from the heavens to help you run your page. That Alanzo guy is trying to convince people that he’s interested in solving crimes. But he’s actually a nefarious character working for the evil cult he’s accusing of murder.
Steering people away from Alanzo’s content tells more about you than Alanzo. Alanzo’s blog is a deep dive into his own recovery which is more about discovery in fact. It has nuance and covers the history of anti-Scientology very thoroughly, told in real-time so you see the changes in Alanzo’s understanding of his experience in detail. It’s not something many people really look for, so why so much effort to quash it? Maybe more should take some time to find out who Alanzo really is. Read his blog if you want to know who he really is.
Do you blog Sherizzy?
Hi, Alanzo 👋
How many ex-Scientologists did you spy on at Miscavige’s direction?
You know Penza is no longer a prosecutor. You know she doesn’t read FR because you listened to the podcast.
What a sorry attempt to get us to believe you are really anti-Scientology.
You are so transparent. Please stop so we can start discussing NXIVM again —without you replying to yourself using different names.
Honestly, it’s pathetic.
I don’t think I’ve ever seen anyone as duped as you, Sherizzy.
And that’s saying a lot.
I’m curious to know what you’ve been told, and swallowed, about the death of Kyle Brennan.
Was that all just faked? Something David Miscavige is paying me to say?
How does this all work, exactly?
Sherizzy asked a very direct question. She asked who you helped spy on. She did not ask about Kyle Brennan. We all know you had no direct contact with David Miscavige.
What did you do at the Church? I can’t recall.
The only thing more pointless than arguing with a troll is arguing with a Scientology troll.
Either mock the troll or ignore it.
You are too smart to lower yourself to its level.
“Frankly, I can’t fully comprehend why law enforcement didn’t act earlier. Of course, this is a very complex case.” Moira Penza.
Doesn’t Ms. Penza understand that in America justice is for sale to the highest bidder?
Here is more evidentiary information Victoria Britton has collected on her blog regarding the death of her son, Kyle Brennan.
I’m hoping to get someone with some prosecutorial powers interested in this case just like Sarah Edmonson was able to do with her article in the New York Times.
Expect the trolls, both anonymous cut-outs of Scientology, and not-anonymous dupes of Scientology, to come after me even more here on the Frank Report – never explaining why David Miscavige would pay me to post evidence that implicates him in Scientology murders made to look like suicides.
Criminal indictments are what I seek – no more distractions from that.
You should know by now that I’ll keep speaking out for another 21 years until justice is achieved for the victims of Scientology. Private investigators, bankruptcies, online harassment and humiliation, revising my history and lying about me in attempts to discredit me – none of these are going to work.
Moira Penza – and friends and colleagues of Moira Penza – please do something about Scientology.
