Chilean man tells the nation that he disappeared bodies for General Pinochet. He dynamited the corpses.
There was something about the voice of the killer calling in to the late-night talk show that burned into the conscience of the Chilean nation: not just the fact of the multiple murders he said he committed; not just that he said he was only following orders from the CIA-supported Pinochet regime by slaughtering suspected subversives; but the casual tone and bar-room language he used to describe the murders, and especially, the way he said his military unit made the corpses disappear.“We shot them, and then we dynamited them,” he said. “The bodies disintegrated. There was nothing left.”
