single event[edit]

Person is notable for a single event only - while this is not a BLP, notability is still a requirement, and salient material may be placed in a more general article - but this one ain't it. Collect (talk) 21:07, 25 December 2010 (UTC)

Moved it. Moved to, "Death of Lisa McPherson". Please feel free to discuss. -- Cirt (talk) 13:59, 26 December 2010 (UTC)

This person is more than adequately notable for Wikipedia Standards.swampfoot (talk) 17:32, 3 January 2013 (UTC)

My comments for the Background section
After reading this and other accounts of The Minor Car Accident, I am hoping there are persons who can cite and expand the text for the event. I would like to see the following improvements.
  • In every account I have read, her words to the Paramedics/Responders, while she was removing her clothes, are unclear. If there is documentation for such words, I feel they could be incorporated here. The way I read it now, is that she was not injured, and acted in a way so as to non-verbally ask for help after her condition had been deemed satisfactory, on scene.
  • There is no citation here regarding The Minor Car Accident itself, it's cause, other vehicles, other parties, etc.
  • Consider that The Minor Car Accident is what brought her into the public light. Wikipedia is an encyclopedia, a historical reference, to be used by future readers, for analytical purposes.

According to Inside Scientology (Kindle location 3622), Paramedic Bonnie Portolano had the following exchange with Lisa (excerpted):
"Why did you take off your clothes?"
"I wanted people to think I was crazy because I need help."
The rest of the accident is pretty straightforward and including its "cause, other vehicles, other parties" is optional. The above quoted book has lots of detail on Lisa McPherson's life and death and would be a good place to start. Andrew327 04:07, 4 January 2013 (UTC)
