On this day in 1977, Charles C. Morgan, a seemingly mild mannered Tucson escrow agent, was found dead near the Mexican border under bizarre circumstances. He was found wearing a bulletproof vest and shot in the back of the head with his own gun. Although the evidence pointed clearly to murder, Tucson police ruled the death a suicide. Among the strange items recovered from the scene was a two dollar bill clipped to his underpants, that was marked with a hand drawn map of several Mexican towns, a list of names, a reference to Ecclesiastes 12 1-8, among other cryptic messages. It is a story that involves kidnapping, the mafia, money laundering, and a government conspiracy.
