Persephone was titled Kore (the Maiden) as the goddess of spring’s bounty. Once upon a time when she was playing in a flowery meadow with her Nymph companions, Kore was seized by Haides and carried off to the underworld as his bride. Her mother Demeter despaired at her dissappearance and searched for her throughout the world. When she learned that Zeus had conspired in her daughter’s abduction she was furious, and refused to let the earth fruit until Persephone was returned. Zeus consented, but because the girl had tasted of the food of Haides–a handful of pomegranate seeds –she was forced to forever spend a part of the year with her husband in the underworld. Her annual return to the earth in spring was marked by the flowering of the meadows and the sudden growth of the new grain. Her return to the underworld in winter, conversely, saw the dying down of plants and the halting of growth. – Via http://www.theoi.com/Khthonios/Persephone.html

The plaintiffs had contracted with Narconon to provide in-patient treatment for the wife. When the wife arrived, she was put into detoxification at what was called the “withdrawal cabin” which was some distance from the main facility. While the plaintiff was sleeping, Lengstorf who was a former student and recent graduate of the program entered the cabin, insisted on giving her a “touch assist”, and, after a chase that took place outdoors, ultimately raped her.
