Who Killed The Poet


Last Saturday, a judge in Chile ordered the police to track down the man who may have poisoned the poet Pablo Neruda nearly 40 years ago. Two months ago the poet’s body was exhumed after his former driver alleged that Neruda had been poisoned by agents of the dictator Pinochet. Subsequently, Dr. Sergio Draper, who had previously testified that he was with Neruda when he died, changed his story and asserted that a mysterious Dr. Price was actually with the Nobel Laureate at the time of his demise. Now there’s speculation that the mystery doctor was actually Michael Townley, a CIA agent working for the Chilean secret police.
