Thirty seven years after the death of reggae king Bob Marley, a CIA agent who is 79 years old and on his deathbed has confessed the death was orchestrated by the American Central Intelligence Agency.
Bill Oxley, ex-agent of America’s Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) is re-writing the history of the death of reggae legend Bob Marley, claiming he actually killed the legend.
Marley tragically died aged only 36-years-old, leading music lovers world-wide to grieve as the Jamaican icon’s life and career were cut short following a four-year battle with cancer.
The story of cancer may seem untrue as startling claims have emerged from a deathbed confession made by an ex-CIA officer, where he admitted to the killing.
Oxley is alleged to have claimed the murder of Marley among 17 other assassinations for the American government between 1974 and 1985, at a time when he said the CIA “was a law unto itself.”
Oxley, who reportedly worked as an operative for the CIA for 29 years, is alleged to have said he was often used as a hitman on targets deemed to “represent a threat to the interests of the United States.”
In a purported interview shared widely online, he admitted having no problem with proceeding with the Bob Marley assassination because “I was a patriot, I believed in the CIA, and I didn’t question the motivation of the agency – I’ve always understood that sometimes sacrifices have to be made for the greater good.”
According to the conspiracy theory, Oxley used faked press credentials to gain access to Bob Marley at his Blue Mountain retreat; introducing himself as a famous photographer working for the New York Times, and gave Bob Marley a gift.
“I gave him a pair of Converse All Stars. Size 10. When he tried on the right shoe, he screamed out ‘OUUUCH.‘
“That was it. His life was over right there and then. The nail in the shoe was tainted with cancer viruses and bacteria. If it pierced his skin, which it did, it was goodnight nurse.”

“There had been a series of high-profile assassinations of counter-culture figures in the United States in the late sixties, early seventies. By the time Bob Marley’s time came around, we thought subtlety was the order of the day. No more bullets and splattered brains.”
Mr. Oxley says he kept close contact with Marley during the final years of his life, ensuring the medical advice he received in Paris, London and the United States “would hasten his demise rather than cure him.”
“The last time I saw Bob before he died he had removed the dreadlocks, and his weight was dropping like a stone,” he says.
“He was very withdrawn, unbelievably small. He was shrinking in front of us. The cancer had done it’s job.”
Although widely dismissed as fiction, the account does tally with findings by UK scientists in 2014, who discovered the mysterious acral melanomas – the rare type of skin cancer that caused reggae musician’s demise – was in fact not caused by the sun.
Bob Marley’s soon Ziggy has previously implied his Father was killed, saying in a 2013 interview about the death: “I don’t know what to believe … there are a lot of theories.”
In the late 1970s, Jamaica was flooded with cheap guns, heroin, cocaine, right-wing propaganda, death squad rule and, as Grenada’s Prime Minister Maurice Bishop described it three years later, the CIA’s “pernicious attempts [to] wreck the economy.”
“Destabilization,” Bishop told the emergent New Jewel Party, “is the name given the most recently developed method of controlling and exploiting the lives and resources of a country and its people by a bigger and more powerful country through bullying, intimidation and violence.”
In response to the fascistic machinations of the CIA, Marley wove his lyrics into a revolutionary crucifix to ward off the cloak-and-dagger “vampires” descending upon the island.
The CIA, which has denied any involvement in Marley’s death, has been approached for a comment.
Bob Marley died from cancer in a Miami hospital on May 11, 1981. He helped popularize Jamaican music, from ska to reggae.
Bob was diagnosed with malignant melanoma in 1977, and continued working, releasing the album “Kaya”, which was on the charts in Britain for 56 weeks. He began to tour around the world, and performed in Zimbabwe in 1980 to celebrate the country’s independence from the United Kingdom.While jogging, Bob collapsed and in the examination, it was found that the cancer had spread to his brain, liver, and lungs.He was awarded the Jamaican Order of Merit in February of 1981. He went to Germany to see a cancer specialist, and on his way to Jamaica, he stopped in Miami to receive emergency medical care. He died at the Cedars of Lebanon Hospital on May 11, 1981, at the age of 36.Bob Marley has been called a visionary, a Third World superstar, and a revolutionary artist. He was all this and more, and brought Jamaican music to the world.
He was born Nesta Robert Marley on February 6th, 1945, in a small village in Jamaica. When he started going to school, he also began reading palms and telling the villagers their future. His father took him to live in Kingston, and a year later, his mother brought him back home.He became friends with the son of his mother’s boyfriend Neville “Bunny” Livingston, and soon told her that he was now going to sing instead of reading palms.In 1957, he and Bunny made guitars from sticks and cans, they sang, and wrote songs. He left school at 14 to be a welder’s apprentice.In 1961, he began to focus on music, making a singing group called “The Teenagers” with Bunny and another friend, Peter McIntosh. Bob’s first singles were recorded in 1962, on the Beverley label:
“Judge Not (Unless You Judge Yourself)”
“One Cup of Coffee”
In the next few years, there were more members added to the band, and soon the name was changed to The Wailing Rudeboys,” then to “The Wailing Wailers,” and finally, “The Wailers.” Their first single, “Simmer Down” rose to number one on Jamaica’s JBC Radio chart.Bob married Rita Anderson in 1966, but moved the next day to Delaware where his mom lived and worked, returning home later in the year. He set up his own recording label and converted to the Rastafarian religion. He started dreading his hair and eating a natural diet according to his new religion.In 1967 The Wailers recorded over 80 songs, and in 1971, they released “Soul Rebels” that was their first song to be released outside of Jamaica. The Wailers’ first album, “Catch a Fire” was released in 1973, as was their next album, “Burnin,’” which included the song “Get Up, Stand Up.” In 1974, The Wailers disbanded and Bob found other musicians to continue. He saw more hits in 1975, and in 1976, he relocated his family to England.
