Left to die in Vietnam

Eugene B. McDaniel

October 29, 1990|By Eugene B. McDaniel

MARIAN Shelton, the wife of a prisoner of war from the Vietnam conflict, was buried in Arlington National Cemetery three weeks ago. She went to her grave convinced that her husband, Air Force Col. Charles Shelton, is still alive somewhere in Southeast Asia. She was equally convinced that evidence of his survival was being suppressed. The mother of five took her own life on Oct. 5, after a quarter of a century of seeking the truth about her husband's fate.
