The Rettig commission found in 1991 that around 3000 people had been killed by the miltary Junta headed by Augusto Pinochet since the coup that outsted Allende in 1973.
Memoria Viva, a web site which is run by a chilean human rights group, lists several thousand names of the disappeared and executed. It is mainly in Spanish but an English section has recently been added.
Quote from their site:
A Resource Centre that documents human rights violations during the Chilean military dictatorship with a particular focus on disappeared and executed political prisoners.
A website that collate and make globally available information on human rights violations and human rights abusers with the aim of bringing the latter to justice, either in Chile or the international courts.
