CANCUN/KANKUN IN THE 1960'S BEFORE DEVELOPMENT, SHOWING COCONUT PLANTATION AND RANCHO.
HAVE DISCOVERED THAT KEY EVIDENCE TO PROVE LEE HARVEY OSWALD AND I OBTAINED OUR INFORMATION ABOUT 'CANCUN' FROM TULANE UNIVERSITY, AS I REPORTED RECENTLY ON FACEBOOK,WAS REMOVED FROM THE ENGLISH LANGUAGE OBITUARY OF ARCHEOLOGIST EDWARD WYLLYS ANDREWS.
THE CENSORED INFORMATION REMAINED INTACT IN THE SPANISH VERSION OF ANDREWS' OBITUARY --BUT IT TOOK A TRIP TO THE YUCATAN TO FIND IT.
We now have documentation that archaeologist Edward Wyllys Andrews, IV, who worked for the CIA and for Tulane University, excavated Cancun Island in 1963. This was 'news' at Tulane's Latin American library (Matas Library) which had an exhibit showing the Cancun Island excavation by 'their' archeologist. By the way, Dr. Alton Ochsner , my mentor, and Dr. Matas were very close friends.
Lee and I visited this library initially to learn more about Mexico City after it seemed certain Lee would be sent there. When things began to turn sour and dangerous, we returned to copy maps, routes and information for our planned escape to the Yucatan, We decided to choose "Kankun" - as my notes called it- because we saw the many maps, plane routes, that led to Chichen Itza, to which we planned to hike. From there, the halfway mark, we planned to go on to Merida, where we planned to get married. if necessary, we would have fled to th Cayman islands if Merida proved unsafe, though Lee said there was 'a CIA presence" there that he felt he could trust.
"Cancun/Kankun" had a safe landing strip for planes, and Lee said the CIA used the strip, and I would be flown there by Alex Rorke and Geoffrey Sullivan (they were SHOT DOWN the SAME DAY LEE CROSSED THE BORDER TO GO TO MEXICO CITY. THAT'S ON RECORD. In my book David Ferrie: Mafia Pilot, you learn that GERRY HEMMING sent a search party to try to find the wreckage.)
We decided that Cancun/Kankun was a safe place for me to stay until Lee could meet me there the same day I arrived. But it was not to be. Nobody showed for Lee to hand off the bioweapon, so he had to show some effort to get it into Cuba himself. That this was done crudely shows that Lee had no real desire to be successful, but it would look good to the CIA, insofar that he made the effort.
Because Rorke and Sullivan went missing, and Lee was ordered back to Dallas, supposedly because of Hurricane Flora--( remember we have it said in MARINA AND LEE that Marina never thought she would see him again (and that's a CIA approved book, by Patricia McMillan Johnson)--Lee was forced to return to Dallas.
There he was sent the transit visa to Cuba he'd sought, but he ignored it because his mission to Mexico City was over. It was never really about going to Cuba. Lee had told Marina he was going to Cuba so she would have no desire to follow him. She was safe with the White Russian community and he had provided funding for her. This would show up as a $25,000 'anonymous' contribution after he was shot dead. I think the true origin of this 'anonymous' contribution will be rigged sometimes to show it came from some other source, of course.
Concerning "Cancun" I was criticised by armchair researchers who contended that there was nothing in that area, that I erroneously referred to the city built there in the 1970's and therefore was making it all up. All I could do was to say we got our information from Tulane's Latin American Library, that "Kankun" was a tiny village located there and that the archeology there was being studied at the time, catching our attention as a safe place, since excavation work there showed every detail.
Andrews's son, Anthony P. Andrews, published that Cancun was also called "Kankun" and described his father's work there for Tulane University in a paper he wrote while teaching at New College in Sarasota, FL. In his paper he mentions a "rancho" on the island and that the site was also called "Kankun". There was also a small coconut plantation that is mentioned in several articles ion the internet.
READ IT HERE:
It is lucky he wrote the paper, because NOW KEY INFORMATION in his father's obituary, written in Spanish by archaeologist Benevidas Castillo, was REMOVED from the English version of Andrews' obituary written by Castillo, when published in the United States.
REMOVED: that Edward Wyllys Andrews worked for the CIA.
REMOVED: that Andrews excavated Cancun island, while mentioning ALL of his OTHER excavations.
This is stunning. Consider the thoroughness used to remove any mention of Cancun in 1963 as being in the news at Tulane University, or that there were links to the CIA through Andrews.
Did somebody know about our plans to flee to Cancun, or at least that Cancun was being visited by CIA asset Andrews, and for some reason this had to be erased from any version of the obituary that Americans read about?
However, it's in Spanish.
It's still in the best-selling Mexican book printed in 2015 called EN BUSCA DE LOS ANTIGUOS MAYAS -- HISTORIA DE LA ARCQUEOLOGIA EN YUCATAN. (pages 77, 91 and 97 ). Also Inside is a very old map showing the area was called "Cancun" for centuries before the city was built there in the 1970's.
I TOLD THE TRUTH.
SO....IF YOU READ ANYTHING CRITICISING ME FOR SAYING 'CANCUN/KANKUN' EXISTED, JUST REMEMBER THAT EDWARD WYLLS ANDREWS, IV WORKED FOR THE CIA AND TULANE, AND EVEN THOUGH THIS INFORMATION WAS REMOVED FROM THE AMERICAN VERSION OF HIS OBITUARY, WYLLYS EXVACATED CANCUN/KANKUN IN 1963, AND THAT'S EXACTLY WHAT LEE AND I SAW -- THE MAPS, THE NOTES, THE EXHIBITS IN THE GLASS CASES. WE MADE PLANS TO ESCAPE. TRAGICALLY, IT WAS NOT TO BE.
