Hard drinking and physically imposing, David Sánchez Morales was somewhat indiscreet and suffered a sudden death just before he was due to testify to the HSCA.
In a 1994 letter, Bradley E. Ayers claimed that David Morales was one of 9 people based at JM/WAVE who "have intimate operational knowledge of the circumstances surrounding the assassination" of John F. Kennedy. the others were Edward Roderick, Gordon Campbell, Grayston Lynch, Theodore Shackley, Felix Rodriguez, Thomas Clines, Rip Robertson and Tony Sforza.
In January 2004, E. Howard Hunt gave a taped interview claiming that Lyndon Johnson instigated the JFK assassination, and that the key organisers were David Sánchez Morales, Cord Meyer, David Atlee Phillips and Frank Sturgis.
Sánchez Morales was taken suddenly ill in May 1978, just weeks before he was due to testify before the House Select Committee on Assassinations. Morales’s wife, Joanne, requested that there should not be an autopsy. He reportedly died of a heart attack.
