Arnesto Rodriguez is identified as a CIA asset, and that his cryptonym showed that he was part of an on-island surveillance network. His son Arnesto Rodriguez, Jr. was a New Orleans resident, and an FBI security informant with the symbol NO 1213-S. His mother told the authorities that Arnesto, Jr. had an audiotape of Lee Harvey Oswald, but he responded that his mother was mistaken. Arnesto, Jr. reported in 1967 that he was manager at the Modern Languages Institute, and that former employee William Cuthbert Brady used to visit the Ryder House bar that was also frequented by Lee Oswald. Brady was a prominent Republican that left for the Philippines after being picked up on a morals charge. https://www.maryferrell.org/showDoc.html?docId=9986&search=%221213-S%22#relPageId=93&tab=page
