Hollywood Writer Killed By CIA For Exposing Panama

Fact checked

Back in 1998 the skeletal remains of Hollywood screenwriter Gary Devore were found strapped into his Ford Explorer car which was submerged beneath the California Aqueduct. 

Just before the incident Devore had been working on delivering his final script which detailed the real reason behind the US invasion of Panama. His script implicated the CIA. His script and his hands were both missing from the crime scene with no explanation from investigators.

17 years on an explanation and exposure of CIA involvement in Gary Devore’s death uncovered

The Daily Mail has uncovered evidence that Devore was working with the CIA in Panama, with a White House source confirming that his death reeks of a cover-up.

The Daily Mail report:

The findings, published in a new documentary The Writer With No Hands, are the first testimonies ever aired that give credence to the theories that surrounded the case in the late 90s.

Chillingly, the British research team – which was warned to drop the investigation by a Department of Defense contractor – has also secured testimony from the coroner which reveals the human hands said to be recovered from Devore’s car were in fact around 200 years old.

‘Someone in authority lied. Or made a shocking error,’ producer Dr Matthew Alford tells DailyMail.com.

‘There could be an innocent explanation for the hands but it is as extraordinary as the conspiracy theory and very suspicious.’

Devore, who wrote Dogs Of War, Raw Deal and Time Cop, had been working on his directorial debut: The Big Steal.

Once a truck driver, he had made a successful career shift into Hollywood. He was a friend to Arnold Schwarzenegger, Tommy Lee Jones’s best man, and ex-boyfriend of Janet Jackson.

The Big Steal, he told friends, would be ‘the hardest hitting film studios have ever seen’, featuring ‘disturbing details’ about the US invasion of Panama.

The first draft of the script, shown exclusively to the Daily Mail, tells the story of American operatives robbing a Panamanian bank to cover up for ‘something much more serious’.
