A former CIA agent just confessed to allegedly killing Jamaican reggae icon Bob Marley. Bob Marley died in 1981 after cancer originally found in his toe spread throughout his body.
79-year old Bill Oxley, who says he used to be a CIA operative, claims it was he who gave Marley the cancer.
According to Oxley, he used fake press creditionals to get close to Marley and gave him a gift of a pair of shoes — which Marley then tried on.
“I gave him a pair of Converse All Stars. Size 10. When he tried on the right shoe, he screamed out ‘OUUUCH.‘ That was it. His life was over right there and then. The nail in the shoe was tainted with cancer viruses and bacteria. If it pierced his skin, which it did, it was goodnight nurse,” Oxley said.
In an interview shared widely online, by the website Vanguard.com, he admitted having no problem with proceeding with the Bob Marley assassination because “I was a patriot, I believed in the CIA, and I didn’t question the motivation of the agency – I’ve always understood that sometimes sacrifices have to be made for the greater good.”
The CIA has denied involvement in Marley’s death.
