U.S. officials have recovered the body of an American kidnaped by gunmen loyal to deposed ruler Gen. Manuel Antonio Noriega and apparently executed by a gunshot to the head, U.S. officials said today. The officials said the recovered body was that of Raymond Dragseth, a chemistry teacher at the Panama Canal Commission College who was abducted at the outset of the U.S. invasion from his home near the Vatican Embassy, where Noriega has sought political asylum.
