This chapter describes the legal team’s interactions with the getaway driver, Amado Garay, who gives them the surprise of a lifetime when he calls out of the blue and confirms that he is in witness protection. He agree to cooperate in the case and soon provides testimony in the form of a deposition under oath, in which he repeats much of the story he told in 1987 implicating Alvaro Saravia in Romero’s murder. Garay provides many more details about the group he was in, calling it a death squad in which the people were well-armed, and stating that he was a driver for Roberto D’Aubuisson on several occasions. With Garay’s testimony, the legal team finally has recorded testimony from a witness under oath confirming that Saravia was involved in killing Archbishop Romero.

Keywords:   Garay, witness protection, Saravia, D’Aubuisson
