U.S. Embassy Santiago, «[Deleted] Reports on GOC [Government of Chile] Involvement in Death of Charles Horman, Asks Embassy for Asylum and Aid,» April 28, 1987
Nearly fourteen years after the coup, an informant seeking political asylum at the U.S. Embassy in Chile offers an account of Horman’s death.  Horman was picked up in a routine sweep, the informant suggests, and was found in possession of «extremist» materials.  He was then taken the National Stadium where he was interrogated and later executed on the orders of Pedro Espinoza.  Embassy officials note that his story «corresponds with what we know about the case and the [Chilean government] attempt to cover up their involvement,» suggesting that the informant is probably telling the truth.
