Your Neighbor, the Assassin

A quick update on a story that I visited on this blog before –  another Salvadoran ex- army colonel accused of the 1989 murders of six Jesuit priests was found living in…wait for it…Everett, Massachusetts…

Just wrap your head around that for a second. One of your neighbors in your Boston suburb was an executor of one of the most heinous crimes against humanity in El Salvador’s collective punishment campaign against guerilla movments in the 1980’s. With the full-fledged support of the Reagan administration, I might add.

Considering how little this has hit the press (I myself am a few days late on it), who knows if a majority of the citizens of Everett, Mass. are even aware of the assassin (formerly) in their midst.

That is, according to this story in UPI  (and Boston Globe) the ex Salvadoran army colonel, Inocente Orlando Montano, has already skipped town. No word in mainstream press about this in general, let alone if Spain has put out an extradition request like the others accused who have turned themselves in to Salvadoran authorities..
