I am a former volunteer from Togo, West Africa, 1967-69. I am absolutely outraged by the actions of the Peace Corps office in Tonga in 1976, whereby the murder of a female volunteer by a male volunteer was covered up by the Peace Corps. This man is on the streets and was never held responsible. See the NYT Book Review. American Taboo by Philip Weiss. Sandra (Thomas) Scavazzon
