More than 70 years after “two truckloads” of Tesla’s property were seized by the US government, following the renowned inventor’s death, the FBI decided to published its cache of files relating to Nikola Tesla.
The declassified documents have been released under the Freedom of Information Act and revealed the FBI and government’s serious interest in the death ray – a particle beam weapon which Tesla claimed to have invented. The long-awaited release also contains information on Tesla’s ball lightning experiments and an FBI plot to arrest a family member who they believed was trying to get his hands on Tesla’s treasure trove of documents.
Tesla died at the age of 85 in a New York hotel suite on what was believed to be January 7, 1943. However, one of the newly-released documents, a letter dated January 12, 1943 states that an inquiry established Tesla actually died on January 8. It also detailed how the government office of Alien Property Control seized all of Tesla’s property, sealed all articles and brought them to the Manhattan storage warehouse in New York City.
