CIA Alumni Killed Because of His Book

Winston Scott, was CIA station chief in 1963. He was an associate of James Jesus Angleton in Europe. He retired in 1969 and wrote a memoir about his time in the FBI, OSS and the CIA. He completed the manuscript, “It Came To Little,” and made plans to discuss the contents of the book with CIA director, Richard Helms, in Washington on 30th April, 1971.

However, Scott died on 26th April, 1971. No autopsy was performed, and a postmortem suggested he had suffered a heart attack. His son, Michael Scott told Dick Russell that he took away his father’s manuscript.

Angleton also confiscated three large cartons of files including a tape-recording of the voice of Lee Harvey Oswald. His son Michael Scott was also told by a CIA source that his father had not died from natural causes.

Michael Scott eventually got his father’s manuscript back from the CIA. However, 150 pages were missing. Chapters 13 to 16 were deleted in their entirety. In fact, everything about his life after 1947 had been removed on grounds of national security.
