CUBAN COLONEL COMMITS SUICIDE AT MILITARY ACADEMY By Ariel Tapia, Cuba Free Press.

HAVANA - Colonel Luis Angulo del Risco, director of one of the most prestigious military academies in the capital city, took his life December 23 while in his office at the academy, in the municipality of El Cotorro.

Angulo was director for the past 20 years. The school is part of the network of military academies called "Camilo Cienfuegos." Thousands of Cuban military officers have graduated from those schools.

The funeral of the military officer was very discreet and did not include homage from the chiefs of the Revolutionary Armed Forces. The niece of the deceased man gave the eulogy.

According to sources close to the family, the colonel shot himself shortly before being arrested and charged with corruption.

There was an incident at the funeral in which the officer's widow blamed another officer for her husband's death.
