The family of a Top CIA scientist who was privy to some of the agency’s darkest secrets is now claiming that he was actually murdered by agents.
The scientist, Frank Oslo, died in 1953 at the Statler Hotel In New York City with his death being ruled a suicide at the time, but newly uncovered evidence has shed doubt on that claim.
As The Daily Mail reports:
Frank Olson died in the early hours of the morning on Nov. 28, 1953 outside The Statler Hotel in New York City, after having apparently fallen from his room on the 13th floor.
His family were not allowed to see his body, instead being told he had suffered significant facial injuries in the fall, and that he had killed himself by jumping.
But the man’s nephew Paul Vidich is now claiming in his new book, The Coldest Warrior, that Olson was in fact killed by the CIA.
He says that after the family had Olson’s body exhumed, they were told that he died as the result of blunt force trauma in the hotel room and that he was thrown to the street below.
