It was murder; not suicide

In a powerful reminder of the brutality of the Pinochet military regime in Chile, an official autopsy of the remains of Salvador Allende’s vice president, Jose Toha, have determined that he was murdered and did not commit suicide. Almost 40 years ago, Pinochet’s government claimed he hung himself in his hospital room from a closet railing, but his family never bought it because he was taller that the railing. His body was re-interred yesterday.
