The Mysterious Death of Frank R. Olson – Biological Weapons Scientist
Frank Rudolph Olson was a biological warfare scientist and an employee of the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) who worked at Camp Detrick, now Fort Detrick in Maryland. On November 18, 1953, he was covertly dosed with LSD by his colleague Sidney Gottlieb (head of the CIA’s MKUltra program) and, nine days later, plunged to his death from the window of the Hotel Statler The U.S. government first described his death as a suicide, and then as misadventure, while others allege murder. The Rockefeller Commission report on the CIA in 1975 acknowledged their having conducted drug studies. More than 40 years after his death, the body of C.I.A. scientist Dr. Frank Olson has been exhumed. Olson’s son Eric is convinced his father was murdered by agents of the American government, because he wanted to leave the C.I.A. Dr. Frank Olson was an expert for anthrax and other biological weapons, and had top security clearance. Forensic pathologists at George Washington University performed an autopsy, and concluded that Olson appeared to be a victim of a violent crime.
