On Sat., Oct. 4, 2014, at about 10 am, word of the death of Haiti's former tyrant, Jean-Claude Duvalier, circulated through the streets of Port-au-Prince. A short time later, one of Duvalier's lawyers, Reynold Georges, confirmed the news on several radio stations in the capital. There was no display of sadness among people in the streets of Haiti.
Jean-Claude Duvalier, 63, died of a heart attack at the home of one his close friends, former Col. Joseph Baguidy, former head of the neo-Duvalierist National Intelligence Service (SIN), the Haitian CIA.
