The battle between Tom Cruise and Scientology and its foes is heating up.

Cruise and Scientology have been in the news lately because of an allegedly censored South Park parody of the religion and now Scientology and the Top Gun star are being blamed for a womans death.

Thanks, Tom Cruise and the Church of Scientology, for your expert advice on mental health, blasts an ad in LA Weekly. The ad goes on to say that a woman was killed by the schizophrenic son she was told to treat with vitamins instead of psychiatric care.

The ad refers readers to a Web site, which provides details on the case of Jeremy Perkins, a 28-year-old schizophrenic who stabbed his mother to death. Perkins was a staunch Scientologist and his mother was a counselor in the church which opposes psychiatry and psychiatric drugs and believes modern psychiatric medicine derives from an ancient alien civilizations plot to drug and enslave humanity, notes the site.

A spokesman for the Celebrity Center of the Church didnt respond to requests for comment by deadline.
