Episode 048 - The Mysterious Death of Chuck Morgan

Chuck Morgan Trace Evidence

Chuck Morgan worked as an escrow agent in Tucson, Arizona in 1977.  Far from an exciting life, Chuck enjoyed the quiet calm and exactness of his work, and in his free time, delighted in joy and excitement of raising four daughters with his wife, Ruth.  Suddenly, Chuck's life would be thrust into danger and mystery when he vanished on March 22nd. 

Chuck resurfaced three days later and told his wife a bizarre tale about being abducted, torture and having his throat coated with a potent hallucinogen.  From that day forward, Chuck was extremely safety conscious and even went so far as to wear a bullet proof vest and he began carrying a .357 magnum handgun.  

Several months later, in June, when things seemed to be back to normal, Chuck vanished once again.  Nine days later, a mysterious woman called his wife and gave her a cryptic statement about a Bible passage in Ecclesiastes.  Two days after that, Chuck's body was discovered in a remote area forty miles outside of Tucson.  Police ruled his death a suicide, despite several glaring discrepancies with that theory. 

Over the next forty years, investigations into Chuck's death would find connections to organized crime, hitmen, government covert operations and allegations of fraud and drug smuggling.  What happened to Chuck Morgan and how did this straight laced businessman end up in a world of intrigue and undercover operations that ultimately lead to his death?  Join host Steven Pacheco as he examines the baffling details of this complicated and mysterious case in Episode 48 - The Mysterious Death of Chuck Morgan.
