Chile Seeks Ray Davis Extradition Over 1973 Coup Murder


charles_hormanReporter Charles Horman, pictured, disappeared on Sept. 17, 1973 – days after Gen. Augusto Pinochet seized power in a coup – and was found shot weeks later. He was investigating links between the CIA and the Chilean military.

His death was the subject of the 1982 Oscar-winning film “Missing”.

Judge Jorge Zepeda asked the Chilean Supreme Court to authorize an extradition request, so Ray Davis can stand trial in Chile for the murder of Mr Horman and student Frank Teruggi.

Davis was the commander of the US military mission in Chile at the time.
