Hugo Spadafora was kidnapped in broad daylight in September 1985. A local physician in a small city in eastern Panama, Dr. Spadafora had long been in the military regime’s crosshairs for the fierce criticism he dared to level at it. The regime’s unrestrained leader, Gen. Manuel Noriega, ordered Spadafora to be kidnapped and tortured to death; parts of his headless body were found moldering in a post office sack. The results of the torture he had undergone were clearly evident. His head was never found.
