Frank was a student of mine

Frank was a student of mine when I taught at the University of California, Santa Barbara from 1968-71. I wrote one of the letter he requested to study economics in Chile and, was of course, horrified when I learned of his murder. The depiction of him in the film Missing made him to appear a street-wise guy, but Frank, at least when I knew him, had a very quiet, almost innocent demeanor. I couldn't help wondering if his lack of guile and idealism might have played a role in his not surviving being held in the stadium. Although, obviously unaware of how his "interrogation" played out I can imagine him vigorously expressing his beliefs and demanding his release. His murderers might have been even more incensed by this than if he were able to put on an act of some kind. Probably not, but I can't help speculate.

A incredible account of a

A incredible account of a story that began long ago but have never really ended. Norm this is great work and a story that our government ought to finally explain or at least open all the files. Some get angry at Snowden, but it is tales like this that paint a long painful story of a government that has a number of out of control elements.
I hope it brings Frank's family some peace, but I am guessing it really brings a whole new set of questions.

Thank you, Norm, for your

Thank you, Norm, for your passion to investigate and write about Frank. You got it right. And thank you to all who recalled such vivid and sometimes painful memories of their own experiences...to help give depth to Frank's story. The long quest for truth and justice on behalf of both Frank and Charles Horman is aided by strong and conscientious journalism like this.

Norman Stockwell has written

Norman Stockwell has written a fine and accurate story here. It is important that we remember the killing of these two U.S. citizens over 40 years ago. Pinochet's coup was a turning point in South American history, ushering in a reign of terror in many countries, with U.S. support. I have forwarded the link to this article to our daily newspaper here in Northern California and to other websites and would welcome your doing the same.
