This chapter describes the contradictory information the legal team receives from the Department of Homeland Security and other sources concerning the whereabouts of the defendant, Alvaro Saravia, including information that he could be in Central America or in the United States. As team speculates that they could be receiving misleading data, the chapter describes an episode in the 1980s when Roberto D’Aubuisson and others fabricated a witness statement by someone nicknamed Pedro Lobo that the leftist guerrillas killed Archbishop Romero. The team meets in Miami with a key investigator who tries to develop leads not only on the financiers but also a Nicaraguan man, Ricardo Lao, who allegedly received money from Roberto D’Aubuisson to arrange Romero’s murder.

Keywords:   Homeland Security, Pedro Lobo, Lao, Saravia, financiers
