The Mysterious Death of Danny Casolaro, by David MacMichael, Re Inslaw Case at American Buddha Online Library

by David MacMichael

Pre-Octopus Danny Casolaro

The following article appeared in the Winter 1991 issue of “Covert Action Information Bulletin,” #39, pps. 53-57. The author can be reached through the Association of National Security Alumni at +1-202-483-9325. In a recent telephone conversation the author identified the other FBI agent who was to have met with Casolaro the day he died as one Ted Gunderson. We discussed the possible relationship between the Casolaro case and the death threats received by Judge Col. Hamilton Gayden and attorney Albro Lundy III shortly after they were contacted by Casolaro with regard to the POW/MIA issue in the weeks prior to Casolaro’s death. MacMichael speculated that the connection was, “drugs” i.e. southeast asian heroin used in support of the Company’s black operations. –seraphim@ais.org

David MacMicheal is a former CIA estimates officer. He is the Washington representative of the Association of National Security Alumni, and editor of its monthly newsletter, “Unclassified.”

Joseph Daniel Casolaro was one of many freelance investigative reporters stirring the witches brew of scandal simmering in the nation’s capitol. He was also an aspiring novelist, newsletter publisher, and freelance writer for publications running the gamut from the now defunct Washington Star to the National Enquirer. From a well-to-do family (his father, a doctor, had invested well in Northern Virginia real estate), he was 44 years old, divorced, and living comfortably on a five-acre estate in Fairfax County, Virginia — home to the CIA.

Casolaro was working on a book aimed at exposing what he called “The Octopus,” a group of less than a dozen shadowy figures whose machinations figured heavily, he claimed, in the Inslaw case, Iran-Contra, BCCI, and the October Surprise.
