Eric Olson knows a little about government scientists. 

His father, Frank Olson, was an early researcher in the biological warfare program at Fort Detrick until he died in 1953. At the time, United States government officials said Olson's death was a suicide, and that Olson jumped or fell to his death from a high-rise hotel in New York City.

In 1975, the Rockefeller Commission discovered the CIA had slipped LSD to Olson and several other scientists just days before while they were attending a conference at Deep Creek Lake in Garrett County.

CIA spokesmen later admitted its agents were involved in an experimental drug program, but said Olson's death was an apparent suicide.
