Exposing the Octopus, Circa Hollywood: Revelations of Former DOJ Prosecutors in 2009.Journalist Danny Casolaro's death was like a stone hurled into a pool of water. Ever expanding circles of shock-waves rippled from the epicenter in Washington D.C. to the furthest reaches of the nation's consciousness. When the last circle wave crashed upon the West Coast, its psychological effects prompted California journalists to seek answers to what had been contained in Casolaro's files, stolen on the eve of his death. The Last Circle book follows the trail of his investigation which he termed “The Octopus.”
Just prior to his death on August 10, 1991, Casolaro ecstatically told friends he would be traveling to Martinsburg, Va. to “bring back the head of the Octopus.” Instead, his body was found in a blood filled bathtub at a Martinsburg hotel, his wrists slashed deeply ten or twelve times. No papers were found in his hotel room or in his car, though his housekeeper said he filled his briefcase with documents and took them with him when he left home. The hotel room was cleaned and his body was embalmed before relatives were notified; authorities had assumed it was a suicide.
During the last week of his life, Danny had discovered a connection between a former director of international affairs for the Justice Department, the Cali Drug Cartel, and Robert Booth Nichols, an international intelligence operative whom he had been interviewing extensively for months. Danny's last phone bills indicated he'd spent hundreds of hours on the phone with Nichols, most of the calls averaged one to two hours. This in effect, was one tentacle of Danny’s Octopus.
