The enterprising FDA official he spoke to immediately suggested that Johnson join forces with the FDA as an “undercover agent” and infiltrate the church. Johnson dutifully did this, reported in, and was instructed to return and get further information.

Johnson carried his duties as an intelligence agent into tragic and bloody extremes. On September 10, 1963, he walked into the Seattle church and shot and killed the Executive Director before a roomful of horrified congregation members.

The FDA then carried the concept of expediency to new and distasteful heights. Instead of confessing that one of its “agents” had just committed murder, it contacted the Seattle police department and arranged to send its own people illegally into church premises with the homicide team, to further gather information for its “investigation.” As usual, however, the FDA discovered nothing illegal in the church.
