Peron, committed suicide yesterday in his apartment, the government announced. He shot himself to death but the government statement gave no details on his wounds. The suicide of the late Eva Peron's brother created a sensation in Argentina, now in the midst of an economic crisis caused by the unrest of organized labor over rocketing prices. Duarte had been Peron's private secretary since the President came to power in 1946 until last Monday when he resigned giving poor health as the reason. Resigning at the same time was Jose Maria Freire, minister of labor and welfare in which office Eva Peron ran her million dollar enterprise --the Social Aid Foundation. In a letter he left behind for Peron he proclaimed he had been honest as a public servant and hit out against what he said was a rumor campaign "of . defamation and calumny." Crowds surged around the apartment building in fashionable Callao Street in downtown Buenos Aires when his death became known. Police quickly took over to preserve order. The letter Duarte left behind for Peron threw further light on the "rumor campaign" against the Peron government now facing its greatest economic crisis and defection in the ranks of the Peronista Party.
