Will Tongan King’s Death Lift Curtain on ’76 Peace Corps Murder?

on 6 Comments

The King of Tonga has died in New Zealand, according to Matangi Tonga. He was 88, and survived numerous rumors of his death. Aioue!

Will HRH the Crown Prince Tupouto’a succeed him? And will anything be done about the case the late King helped the American government cover up 30 years ago—the murder of Peace Corps Volunteer Deborah Gardner, 23, by fellow Peace Corps Volunteer Dennis Priven, who was soon released and set free in Brooklyn?
