Four Women Accuse Hyde From 'That 70s Show' Actor Danny Masterson Of 'Violent Rape' - Video during: 00:06:48
According to the Huffington Post, an LAPD investigation of That 70s Show star Danny Masterson has inexplicably stalled, even though at least four women alleged to law enforcement that Masterson "violently raped" them back in the early 2000s.
HuffPo seems to imply that because Masterson is a Scientologist — a powerful force in Hollywood, specifically, and California, in general — that the Church of Scientology has been involved in trying to get Masterson off the hook. Three of Masterson's accusers are also Scientologists, and reporting inside-the-Church crimes to authorities is considered "suppressive" behavior by the organization, which keeps strict control over its members.
Sources close to the LAPD and the Los Angeles County Prosector's office say authorities have "compelling" evidence that Masterson committed at least four brutal rapes in the early 2000s.
The evidence includes audiotapes, emails sent to and from Scientology officers at the time the alleged rapes happened, forensic computer evidence and a threatening handwritten letter Masterson sent to one of the alleged victims, according to two people with knowledge of the evidence in the district attorney’s possession.
