On December 2, 1980, the nuns Maura Clarke, Ita Ford, and Dorothy Kazel, and the lay missionary worker Jean Donovan -- all U.S. citizens -- were brutalized and shot to death by members of the El Salvador National Guard. At the request of El Salvador's government, technical experts from the FBI aided in the investigation, which was soon beset by interdepartmental conflicts and chaotic working conditions.

The file includes memorandums, correspondence, specimen analyses, photographs of weapons, field reports, newpaper clippings, witness statements, requests for information by the victims' families, and polygraph examination reports
