Army Files

On 18 September 1964, the Deputy Chief of Staff for Intelligence, Hqs. Fifth US Army, Chicago, Illinois, furnished the following information obtained from BARTLES, Dennis, L., SSGT, RA 17 392 262, Assistant 54, Signal Battalion, Fort Carson, Colorado, during December 1963.

“Sometime in December 1963……Alberto de Jesus Santalo-fuertes had told Bartles  that he (Santalo) had made a telephone call to a friend in Florida shortly after the death of President Kennedy. Santalo claimed that just prior to President Kennedy’s assassination, Oswald had met with Cuban Premier Fidel Castro in Mexico. Santalo also claimed that his reliable source in Florida had informed him that Oswald and the man charged with killing Oswald, Ruby, were ‘connected’ in some way…..”

Files of CIA and Department of State reveal no record of Fidel Castro’s or Raul Castro’s being in Mexico in 1962 or 1963.

The last known  address of Santalo was c/o Mr. Robert Hart, Englewood Ave., Jacksonville, Florida. 

According to his son Alberto Santalo (Jr.), his mother was Gloria Pellerano. 

They were Cuban exiles who came to US in early 1960s and lived in Baltimore, where the son was born. They moved to Florida when the son was eleven. 

The son is still alive and is very successful developing internet software for medical organizations.
