The night of Kyle’s passing–February 16, 2007–the person who called to tell me of the tragedy was a stranger named “Jerry.” We assumed that “Jerry” was the roommate of Tom Brennan (Kyle’s biological father, an avid Scientologist). Six months would pass before we learned that Gerald “Jerry” Gentile was the brother-in-law of Scientology leader David Miscavige.
I was also told during the April conversation with Bohling that he was looking for Brennan’s roommate, a man named Eddie Childers. Bohling stated he had questions for Childers regarding the storage of the weapon that killed Kyle. He wanted to ask him if he recalled seeing it in the nightstand in the room where Childers and Kyle stayed.
