Hermino Diaz Garcia

Recommended Posts


A woman has recently contacted me claiming that she is related to Hermino Diaz Garcia. Does anyone have any questions for her?

http://www.spartacus.../JFKgarciaH.htm


1) What aliases/warnames did he use?

2) Was he involved in the smuggling of drugs?

3) Where was he on 11/22/63?

John, you would probably cover anything I could think of. I would first try to get some background info to verify this person is who she claims to be. That aside, and noting Thomas Graves questions already posted:

- any information regarding Diaz Garcia relationship with Trafficante. The attitudes of both men toward JFK.

- Did either of these two men have advance knowledge of the assassination?

- Did Diaz Garcia travel to any locations in the U.S. after he arrived in mid-summer of 1963? Chicago, Tampa, Dallas, Washington?

This thread on HDG poses a good one: Did HDG die on that Cuesta raid?

I was told some time back that possible Kennedy assassination participant Herminio Diaz Garcia did not die in the Tony Cuesta led raid in 1966. He had indeed gone to Costa Rica and was involved with the drug trade there.

I didn't think much about that until I came across the document attached below. It is dated 1973 and the Herminio Diaz mentioned does indeed have the same 201 file number (201-203040) as the Herminio Diaz Garcia connected to anti-Castro activities of the early 1960's.Diaz Garcia's 201 file was opened in 1957 because of his involvement with Costa Rican revolutionary activities.

It was this discussion on the forum that made her contact me.

Interesting. I know HDG had an infant daughter in 1960. It would be most interesting to know what she, or any family members for that matter, learned/heard/thought in the years following Dallas.

Obviously, any new photos would also be of interest.

I found this purported image of him today on a Spanish-language website.

Hi Tommy,

HDG has been the subject of some serious disinformation over the years. I do not think that image you posted is him though. It may be Armando Romero. That same image appeared in an old ZRRIFLE file I had but in much poorer quality.

There seems to be something funny with his left eye and cheek in that photo and is his right ear missing? It seems to have been cropped or amateurishly cut out of something.

Mr. Simkin - did you ever get to ask your questions?

Thanks - this is a question I really wanted to have Mr. Simkin answer. I think it slipped through the cracks.
