Skip to comments.14 Years Later, Mystery Still Remains in the Death of Vince Foster

14 years ago today, on July 20, 1993, the body of Vincent Walker Foster, Jr. was found in a Virginia park, next to a civil war cannon, with an unidentified revolver lodged in the right hand. Vincent Foster died of a small-caliber gunshot wound to his head.
Vince Foster was not only deputy White House counsel but also the personal attorney to Bill and Hillary Clinton. On the night of Fosters death, top Clinton aides made a frantic effort to enter and remove documents from his West Wing office. In the days that followed, federal investigators were stymied in their investigation of Fosters office and strange death.
The following happened within weeks of his death. Vince Foster finally files the missing Whitewater tax returns. On July 19, FBI director William Sessions is fired. Clinton personally orders him by phone to turn in his FBI property and leave headquarters.
That evening, Clinton security aide Jerry Parks' wife Jane says she overhears a heated telephone conversation with Vince Foster in which her husband says, "You can't give Hillary those files, they've got my name all over them."
On July 20, Clinton names Louis Freeh as Sessions' successor.
Just hours after the search warrant authorizing the raid is signed by a federal magistrate in Little Rock, Vince Foster apparently drives to Ft. Marcy Park.
Foster was found dead of an apparent gunshot wound to the head in Ft. Marcy Park. His unoccupied car, a 1989 Honda, was found in the park's parking lot. Several witnesses - before and after the arrival of the park police - have claimed they saw a briefcase in Foster's car.
A so-called suicide note was found in an office briefcase that had been searched and found to be empty after Fosters death. The note was torn into 27 pieces. Yet an FBI examination found no trace of Fosters fingerprints on the note and three independent handwriting experts determined that Foster's suicide note, was a forgery.
The Raid of Vince Fosters Office While the U.S. Park Police studied the body, Foster's office at the White House was being looted.
Secret Service agent Henry O' Neill watched as Hillary Clinton's chief of staff, Margaret Williams, carried boxes of papers out of Vincent Foster's office before the Park Police showed up to seal it, yet the official identification of Vincent Foster's body by Craig Livingstone did not take place until 10PM!
Another Secret Serviceman saw Craig Livingston remove items from Vincent Foster's office in violation of the official seal. Witnesses also saw Bernard Nussbaum in Foster's office as well. Three witnesses noted that Patsy Thomason, director of the White House's Office of Administration, was desperate to find the combination to Vincent Foster's safe. Ms. Thomason finally opened the safe, apparently with the help of a special "MIG" technical team signed into the White House in the late hours. Two envelopes reported to be in the safe by Foster's secretary Deborah Gorham, addressed to Janet Reno and to William Kennedy III, were never seen again. When asked the next day regarding rumors of the safe opening, Mack McLarty told reporters Foster's office did not even have a safe, a claim immediately shot down by former occupants of that office.

Old but informative.
There’s also Ron Brown. Remember Clinton coming back from his funeral in hysterical laughter?
Can’t think of the author, but read RON BROWN’S BODY.
There is not now and never has been a mystery. Hillary had him snuffed.
July 20...isn’t that also the anniversary of the death of Mary Jo Kopechne?
“Vincent Foster died of a small-caliber gunshot wound to his head.”
Was it not to back of the head?
Do you have any idea why Hitlery had him sent to the hereafter? Just curious.
I believe he was called to testify at the Starr hearings, IIRC. Someone may have more info or better analysis.
It’s anybody’s guess; good chance he knew too much about something.
It is amazing the way people around the Clintons die.
The Clinton library is an empty building. Will we have to wait 25 years or so to find out who Bill and Hillary really are or for that matter JFK and Martin Luther King. We make martyr’s out of these people put them on pedestals create holidays and false images of greatness but the government hides all the relevant information about who these people really are and what they are from the blinded public. come clean lets see everything!
Also, if memory serves, Vince Foster's suit was covered in carpet fibers, from head to toe.
Foster was also known to make one day trips to Switzerland.
What else could they be but trips to his client’s(the clintons) Swiss accounts.
If he was about to squeal he had to go.
The real mystery is why two Republican special prosecutors, Robert Fiske and Ken Starr, covered up Foster’s murder.
Some Clinton info needed here...
You are totally right. One doesn’t have to be a liberal to know that JFK and King’s deaths still smell to high heaven.
Kennedy was living a wreckless personal life, he also had a great many enemies, foreign and domestic (LBJ for one); King had turned on the war and potentially was big trouble for the government.
Just hope I live long enough to find out what happened.
This is an example of why we need to cheer for Obama as the nom. If the Clintons get the nom there will be no stopping them...they will win the pres in a landslide.
