Bob Marley would always remain a legend.
It was previously reported that a former Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), claimed he had a hand in Bob Marley's death.
According to Snopes.com, 79-year-old Bill Oxley, who claimed to have worked with America’s CIA made this known on his deathbed. He died in 1985.
Oxley is alleged to have carried out the murder of Marley among 17 other assassinations for the American government between 1974 and 1985, at a time when he said the CIA “was a law unto itself.”
He said he was often used as a hitman on targets deemed to “represent a threat to the interests of the United States.”
Oxley further admitted he had 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.”
