Dear Mrs. Burke:
Excuse the brief delay in getting these materials to you,
but some were difficult to locate.
All of the individuals cited are known to me. Loran
is a soldier-of-fortune and was indeed deeply involved in
operations in connection with the Bay of Pigs. He is
mentioned in the Warren report.
Harry Dean has indeed been involved in many of the groups
and areas he
claims, but I have not been able to tie down his alleged FBI
status with complete certainty. Paul Schrage on the
other hand is
a quality profile of a retired LAPD officer.
The whereabouts of all are known to me and all have assured
me that they will divulge all to an official body.
