Salvadoran War Crimes Suspect Found In Mass.

A human rights organization says a former El Salvadoran military officer who allegedly played a role in the 1989 massacre of six Jesuit priests has been tracked down to a Boston suburb.

San Francisco-based center for Justice and Accountability says Inocente Orlando Montano has been living in Everett under his own name.

A United Nations commission in 1993 named Montano, a former government vice minister of public safety and army colonel, as a participant in a meeting to plot the assassination of a priest suspected of supporting leftist rebels.

The Boston Globe reports Wednesday that it made several unsuccessful attempts to contact Montano. A listed number for Montano located by The Associated Press was not in service Wednesday.

Montano has previously denied any involvement in the slayings.
