The Enigmatic Death of Abel and Celia Hart
Before she took her own life on July 26, 1980, Haydée Santamaría, "Heroine of the Cuban Revolution," crashed her car against a tree in Miramar but survived to die more conspicuously a few weeks later from a self-inflicted gunshot wound. Last Sunday, her two children, Abel (48) and Celia Hart Santamaría (46), were killed when their car crashed against a tree in Miramar in what has been officially reported as an accident. Was it in fact an accident or a suicide pact? That's a question that their father, Armando Hart Dávalos, another architect of Cuba's destruction, will have to ponder for the rest of his life.
