It's a long store as to why\how I got interested in this today but...I would really like to find out what happened to this guy.
"Herman Frederick Marks"
Google only tells me so much.
"Herman Frederick Marks was born in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, on August 1, 1921. In 1958 he went to Cuba and there joined Fidel Castro's revolutionary forces fighting in the Sierra Maestra Mountains to overthrow the government of Fulgencio Batista. After the revolution was brought to a sccessful conclusion in January 1959, Marks continued to serve as a captain in the Cuban Rebel Army. He was placed in command of some 7,000 to 8,000 men charged with the security of La Cabana, a military prison and fortress in Havana. There he presided over the execution of numerous prisoners condemned to death by military tribunals."
"Herman Marks was an American who participated in the Cuban Revolution, first as a member of Che Guevara's guerilla unit in the Sierra Maestra, and then later as a firing squad captain. Little is known about Marks, but it is generally agreed upon that he was originally from Milwaukee; a veteran of the Korean War; had fled legal difficulties in the United States; was initially removed by Guevara for displaying sociopathic tendencies, but then given a job as an executioner post-revolution in the Cabaņa fortress in Havana, and finally left Cuba, whereabouts unknown. Javier Arzuaga, who as a Basque chaplain gave comfort and solace to those sentenced to death, knew Marks as "The Butcher."
In more recent revelations Herman Marks was a Marine deserter who was convicted for the rape of a teenage girl (he was 30 years of age at the time) and served 3 1/2 years in Waupin, Wisconsin State prison.

He was remembered by colleagues as a socially awkward loner who enjoyed violence, particularly the execution of captured enemy combatants."
In reading about him, nothing ever says what finally happened i.e. where did He go to live after that, is He alive or dead, etc.
I'll save you from knowing my opinion on this slimeball but I am interested in knowing the rest of the story.
