The RCP team continue to follow the six-part Netflix event #Wormwood —a true-crime docuseries about the death of Dr Frank Olson —directed by Errol Morris.

Was Dr Frank Olson pushed, did he jump or was he thrown when he "went out the window" of a room in New York City’s Statler Hotel on November 28 1953?

There's some significant reveals in the next three episodes. The night manager at the hotel contacts Eric and tells him about a telephone call he overheard the night Dr Olson died. The telephone call is a game changer.

The family take a tough decision to have Dr Frank Olson's body exhumed - and the findings challenge the narrative that the family have been told over the years.

There's only one logical conclusion that can be reached that makes all the evidence make sense by the end of #Wormwood - and true to its namesake, it leaves a very bitter aftertaste.
