(Above left, Johnny Roselli montage, above right is a copy(click to enlarge) of the Towner Photo with the locations of several of the JFK shooters demarcated.  The middle item is a screen capture from the Malcolm Couch Film showing the storm drain in question.  The below left photo is of a Remington XP-100 Fireball handgun similar to the one Johnny Roselli may have used in the JFK assassination.  The below right photo shows the amount of repaving done after the JFK assassination to obscure the storm drain location.)

‘Roselli laughed when hearing that Oswald was the sole assassin of President Kennedy.’ –Larry Hancock, Someone Would Have Talked, 2010.

‘Roselli bragged to the source, who was a made man in La Cosa Nostra, that Roselli had shot at and may have killed John Kennedy…Roselli and his men then finished the job from the sewer drain and the grassy knoll while the police and witnesses were running around like chickens with their heads cut off.’ – M. Wesley Swearingen, To Kill A President, 2008.

‘Before he died, Roselli had reportedly informed the Government that he believed his former associates in the Castro assassination plots had gone on to murder President Kennedy.’ Anthony Summers, Conspiracy, 1980.

‘Roselli is another bad-ass. Johnny was Sam’s hit man before going to Hollywood and taking over the movie industry. He was in Dallas for the hit.’ – M. Wesley Swearingen, To Kill A President, 2008.

‘I described it as though someone was shooting a revolver into a hard object – it seemed to have some type of an echo.’ – Secret Service Agent Clint Hill in Donald T. Phillips, A Deeper, Darker Truth, 2009.

‘The origination point of that bullet corresponds exactly to the location of the storm sewer drain at the base of the steps on the north side of Elm Street…The assassin who fired the fatal headshot was hiding in the storm drain.’ – retired US Steel Engineer Tom Wilson in Donald T. Phillips, A Deeper, Darker Truth, 2009.

‘A knowledgeable person, not given to reckless theories, told me the shooter escaped through the sewer that ended at the wooden fence…They then, reportedly, were flown to Houston, where they boarded a Cubana Airlines flight for Havana.’ – Chauncey Holt & Wim. Dankbaar, Self-Portrait of A Scoundrel, 2013.

‘Looking in his rearview mirror, he(newsman Sam Pate) saw the presidential limousine slow down as it came to the curve in front of the grassy knoll. Then he observed a puff of smoke come from the storm sewer…Pete Lucas came up to Pate and told him that the man who killed President Kennedy had gotten away. Lucas went on to say that the assassin’s name was Bruno(a/k/a Johnny Roselli), that he was short and stocky, and that he had been positioned in the storm sewer and “blew Kennedy away with a .45 automatic.”’– Donald T. Phillips, A Deeper, Darker Truth, 2009.

The shocked Pate continued to listen as Lucas further told him that ‘Bruno’ had made his escape through the sewer, emerging at a point near the Post Office, and then got into a car which drove him to the airport for a flight out of town. ‘Bruno’, he said, was from Chicago and an organized crime associate of Jack Ruby. Lucas did not say how he came upon this information, but Pate knew that he was a friend of Ruby.’ – Donald T. Phillips, A Deeper, Darker Truth, 2009.

‘Perhaps he(Roselli) was also the one man who could implicate Trafficante and the CIA in the murder of Mooney(Sam) Giancana, and even more damning, in the assassination of the President of the United States and his presidential-hopeful brother.’- Sam & Chuck Giancana, Double Cross, 1991.

‘What he did say had the Committee enthralled, and nervous enough not to go any further. However, when the committee finally decided near the end of its term that it had come across elements that might connect with the JFK assassination, Roselli was called a third time. At that point, he stopped talking. That decision did not prevent someone from playing it safe and silencing him. He was brutally murdered.’ - Larry Hancock, Someone Would Have Talked, 2010.

*************************************************************************************

This blogger encountered Johnny Roselli’s claim that he fired the final, fatal shot into JFK’s head from the Dealey Plaza storm drain at the foot of the grassy knoll some years back and scoffed at it as some sort of disinformation, but it has started to seem more plausible after further review. This blog would be remiss without it.  (UPDATE: Johnny Roselli’s manhole location has been moved over on the labeled Towner Photo.  I had mistaken a shaded piece of curb as the sewer opening.  It is corrected as of 11/23/13.)

John ‘Handsome Johnny’ Roselli(a/k/a Filippo Sacco) was an Organized Crime ‘liaison’ and ‘strategist’ who ran with the likes of Sam Giancana, Meyer Lansky, Santo Trafficante, Howard Hughes, Frank Sinatra, Tony Accardo, Moe Dalitz, Richard Cain, Jack Ruby and Carlos Marcello. He also had numerous CIA buddies and acquaintances from ‘the Agency’ including David Sanchez Morales, Tracy Barnes and William Harvey from the Mafia and CIA’s collaborative efforts to kill Fidel Castro in the years prior to the JFK assassination.

Sometime in the early 1970’s, Roselli bragged to then fellow prison inmate Bill Bonanno that he had been the shooter who finished off the badly wounded JFK from a storm drain on Elm Street. JFK had been hit by several bullets in the back and throat and once in the chest, but was still clinging to life until Johnny Roselli finished him off with a near point-blank shot to the right temple as the limo slowed to a crawl for the kill shot.

Throughout the JFK assassination literature there is mention of the use of a special, futuristic, prototype handgun called the Remington Fireball XP-100. This weapon was apparently manufactured to produce the lethal power and accuracy of a rifle in a portable handgun format. None of the JFK shooters mentioned on this blog: Richard Cain and Charles Nicolletti in the TSBD, Loran Hall in the Dal Tex Building, Charles Rogers, Charles Harrelson, Roscoe White and Bernard Barker on the Grassy Knoll area, nor the undetermined shooter on the roof of the County Records Building, would have been pressed for space from their shooting vantage points.  (‘Wow, that’s a lot of gunmen and shots fired,’ you say?  If one throws out Arlen Specter’s ridiculous, single, magic bullet wounding JFK and Governor Connally repeatedly and assumes that each wound came from a separate bullet, then 6 wounds in JFK plus 3 wounds in Connally plus 3+ missed shots adds up to 12+ shots fired!)

The aforementioned JFK shooters would not have needed the Fireball XP-100 when regular long barreled rifles would have sufficed. One spot where space would truly have been at a premium, however, would have been under the manhole cover in the Dealey Plaza storm drain. Here the compact yet lethal Fireball XP-100 handgun would have been the perfect choice of weapon for the task given to Johnny Roselli.  It is also interesting to note that the (altered) Zapruder Film conveniently scrolls on a slight angle which cuts off the area where Roselli and his pistol’s smoke plume would have been located during the motorcade!  Was he edited out of the altered Zapruder Film versions the public has been allowed to see?

Roselli was flown into Dallas prior to the JFK assassination by a man named Tosh Plumlee. Mr. Plumlee was a CIA pilot who claims that he was told he would be flying a ‘JFK Assassination Abort Team’ to Dallas to stop the assassination from happening. In hindsight, Mr. Plumlee may have been misled into unwittingly flying JFK’s assassins to Dallas for a ‘JFK Presidency Abort Team’ instead!

Years later, in the 1970’s, the CIA and the Organized Criminals deemed ‘too valuable to kill’ including Lansky, Trafficante and Marcello would begin to purge their earlier JFK assassination co-conspirators such as Giancana, Cain, Roselli, Jimmy Hoffa, and Nicolletti to save their own skins and to prevent any damaging JFK assassination testimony from getting to the American public. Marcello and Trafficante would go on to help the CIA and themselves to immense drug trafficking profits in the 1970’s and 1980’s, some of which were funneled to CIA causes like the Nicaraguan ‘Contras.’

Johnny Roselli’s strangled, stabbed, dismembered corpse floated to the surface of a Miami-area bay in an oil drum on August 7, 1976, in prime Trafficante territory. At the time of his death Johnny Roselli had been talking behind closed doors with the US Government’s Church Committee, a forerunner to the House Select Committee on Assassinations, which investigated abuses of power by the CIA and the intelligence community.

Retired US Steel engineer turned JFK assassination researcher, Tom Wilson, deduced that the final, fatal, headshot which entered JFK’s right temple came from the lower right front at a trajectory not possible from the Grassy Knoll area from his photonic imaging studies as presented in a A Deeper, Darker Truth. Additionally, a Dallas news reporter named Sam Pate who was in a TV crew car in front of JFK’s limo also noticed what he thought was a puff of smoke arising from the storm drain as he glanced into his rear view mirror during the chaos of the assassination. Mr. Pate would go on to be fired shortly thereafter and later survived two separate car bomb attempts on his life for what he saw that day!

The Towner Photo

Towner uncropped

Jim Towner took his wife, Pat, and daughter, Tina, to see JFK’s motorcade in Dallas that fateful November 22nd.  Tina Towner used the family movie camera to capture footage of the motorcade while her father snapped some still photographs of the day’s events including one in the crucial moments after the assassination.  The Towner #3 Photograph, as it has come to be known, captured a look at the grassy knoll and picket fence area at a time estimated to be 60-120 seconds after the assassination which confirms many details from witnesses.

If the reader clicks to enlarge the above photo, one can see that two (conspirator) cops have denied access to the grassy knoll area so that the shooters previously stationed there (Charles Rogers, Charles Harrelson and Roscoe White) could run to a stopped freight train to hide after the assassination.  Rogers and Harrelson crawled under the stopped train and boarded a pre-determined car which was unlocked despite having the appearance of a locked and sealed car along with Chauncey Holt.  Roscoe White then assumed the role of an honest policeman who had been watching the railroad area post-assassination and had not seen anything suspicious.

With access to the critical grassy knoll area denied, the crowd next turned and ran to the intersection of the triple overpass and picket fence area.  Here a CIA man named Bernard Barker was encountered at the end of a storm drain at the end of the railroad triple overpass.  Barker was confronted by Dallas PD’s Joe M. Smith, Seymour Weitzman and an onrushing crowd but was able to placate them with his (phony) Secret Service badge.  Barker’s alleged shooting location would have corresponded with a throat wound to JFK.

The Towner# 3 Photo has often been reproduced in cropped formats in the past.  If the viewer clicks on the photo for enlargement and looks at the 3 o’clock position of the photo, one can see what appears to be a man with something that resembles a rifle!  This would have been the area where Charles Harrelson had fired from in accordance with the Nix film.   Authors John R. Craig and Philip A. Rogers mentioned in The Man on the Grassy Knoll that the JFK assassination rifles were given to non-shooters for disposal purposes for the sake of muddying the water evidence-wise, and so that none of the shooters would literally be caught with smoking guns.

Richard Cain: the JFK shooter in the alleged ‘Oswald sniper’s nest’

Richard Cain montage

‘The CIA trained Roselli, Giancana, Richard Cain and other gunmen in the art of assassination, which none of them hardly needed.’ – M. Wesley Swearingen, To Kill a President, 2008.

‘Mooney(Sam Giancana) said that both Cain and Nicoletti were actual gunmen for the hit, being placed at opposite ends of the Dallas Book Depository.  In fact, he asserted it was Cain who’d actually fired from the infamous sixth-story window.’ - Sam Giancana & Chuck Giancana, Double Cross, 1992.

‘Later there would be reports of men apparently running away from the Book Depository.  One witness said he noticed a man in his thirties, in a dark jacket, emerge from the “back entrance” of the building and run down the street.’ – Anthony Summers, Conspiracy, 1980.

‘Sam Giancana had done something to him so foul he had lost all respect for Sam and wanted to bring down the whole organization.’- Michael J. Cain, The Tangled Web, 2007.

‘If anything happens to me, listen to this tape.  It’s worth a lot of money to you.’ – Richard Cain to his girlfriend, Marlene Kennedy, in 1973, Michael J. Cain, The Tangled Web, 2007.

‘Richard Cain let it slip in a bar in the hearing of outsiders that he and his chief had had something to do with an international conspiracy and a political murder on an assignment from the CIA. Exactly 24 hours later two masked men walked into the same bar, ordered everyone at gunpoint to line up face against the wall, singled out Cain, shoved a gun barrel in his mouth and silenced him for good.’ -Iona Andronov, ‘On the Trail of a President’s Killers, ‘ The New Times, 1977.

*******************************************************************************************************************************************************

Richard Cain(a/k/a Ricardo Scalzitti) was a master criminal who did not look the part of a master criminal.  His harmless, neighborly looks hid a murderous sociopath underneath.  Cain used his estimated 140+ IQ to infiltrate Organized Crime, the Chicago PD, the FBI and the CIA all for the betterment of Richard Cain and his criminal enterprises which included wiretapping, burglary, bookmaking, bribery and murder.

Sam Giancana’s memoirs were written in Double Cross based upon the conversations the mobster had with his younger brother before his murder in 1975.  Giancana spoke poorly of 99% of the hundreds of people in the book and chronicled their seediness and character deficiencies.  One of the few people the mobster actually admired was the mysterious Richard Cain.  Giancana practically gushed about Mr. Cain and his criminal skills.  The multilingual Cain served Giancana personally as the mobster’s ‘international protégé and interpreter’ when Giancana fled to Mexico and conducted international crimes in various locales for several years.  Giancana fingered Cain as one of the JFK shooters in Double Cross, as the actual gunman in the alleged ‘Oswald sniper’s nest’ on the 6th Floor of the Texas School Book Depository.  Giancana also mentioned that Charles Nicoletti was positioned as another JFK shooter on the opposite end of the 6th Floor of the TSBD from Cain.

Richard Cain was a skilled marksman who had been trained with many of the Bay of Pigs mercenaries and Cuban exiles in marksmanship and assassinations.  Despite this training, Cain apparently missed JFK entirely with his first shot which hit Governor John Connally, before hitting JFK in the back of the neck with his second shot.  There is some evidence that Cain’s failure to kill JFK from his vantage point in the ‘Oswald spot’ to make the pre-planned ‘Oswald lone nut’ theory seem plausible may have angered the other conspirators in the plot.  If Cain had hit JFK in the head from behind and killed him instantly as planned, then none of the frontal shooters would have had to fire any rounds at all, and the ‘lone nut’ scenario might be more plausible.

Ultimately, Richard Cain’s life of schemes was cut short by a shotgun blast to the face on December 20, 1973.  He was planning to consolidate his own place in the Chicago organized crime Outfit by assassinating several of his enemies on the same day in Hawaii, at the time, and homicidal blowback came in return.  Cain was murdered during an alleged robbery which was more likely the rubbing out of another conspirator who knew too much on topics which included the JFK assassination.  In the time before Cain was successfully assassinated, Cain survived a drive by shooting attempt.  He evidently made a cassette tape confessing many of his deeds and gave it to a woman he was dating at the time, but the tape has never surfaced since his murder.  The ‘Al Neri’ character in The Godfather novels and films is thought to have been based on Richard Cain, just as the ‘Hyman Roth’ character is apparently based on Meyer Lansky.

‘Braden, along with ex-convict Morgan Brown, was staying at the Cabana Motel, the same motel visited by (Jack)Ruby the night of November 21.’ – Jim Marrs, Crossfire, 1993.

‘While visiting the alleged assassin’s grave on the third anniversary of his death he(author William Morris) encountered an agent who’d worked with Oswald in the CIA…Agent X told him that (Loran)Hall was in Dallas on November 22, 1963 as part of the assassination squad which was directed by Eugene Hale Brading.’ – Alan J. Weberman & Michael Canfield, Coup d’Etat in America, 1975.

‘While we were in the criminal courts building we saw Eugene Brading, aka Jim Braden…Braden would later leave Dallas by way of Love Field Airport.’ – Chauncey Holt & Wim Daakbaar, Self-Portrait of a Scoundrel, 2013.

‘Carlos Marcello would utilize Guy Bannister and David Ferrie for (Castro opponent Mario)Kohly’s exile groups at Lake Ponchatrain, Louisiana.  Eladio del Valle was the coordinator and liaison between the two groups.’ - Robert D. Morrow, First Hand Knowledge, 1992.

‘I received a second phone call.  It was del Valle…he asked me to supply him with four transceivers which were not detectable by any communications equipment then available on the market.’ – Robert D. Morrow, First Hand Knowledge, 1992.

‘Hall later told DA Jim Garrison he was offered $50,000 to kill JFK but turned it down.’ – Charles E. Hurlburt, It’s Time for the Truth, 2012.

‘They had better be perfect, compadre.  They are for Texas…Kennedy’s going to get it in Dallas.’ – Robert D. Morrow, First Hand Knowledge, 1992.

*************************************************************************************

The Dal-Tex Building was located across the street from the Texas School Book Depository.  It offered a great view of JFK’s motorcade from behind, which was not obstructed by trees like portions of the view from the alleged ‘sniper’s nest’ on the 6th Floor of the Book Depository.

In the moments after the JFK assassination a man named Eugene Hale Brading(aka Jim Braden) was arrested for questioning after he was discovered on the 3rd floor of the Dal-Tex Building.  He was a complete stranger to the area and said he was in the building looking for a phone to use.   Brading was known as a Mafia courier for the likes of gangsters such as Santo Trafficante, Carlos Marcello and Meyer Lansky.  Braden was not known as an expert marksman or assassin like some of the other JFK assassination suspects.  He may have served as a radio coordinator for the JFK shooters, whose role would be to give the word for the assassins to fire in simultaneous volleys to conceal the true number of shooters and gunshots that day.  Braden was also in the vicinity of the RFK assassination later on as well in California in 1968.

An electronics expert named Robert D. Morrow wrote a book called First Hand Knowledge in which he claimed that a Cuban exile named Eladio del Valle asked him to make several sets of low band radios and earpieces which would only have to work for a few minutes which no 3rd parties could intercept or monitor.   He assumed they might be used for anti-Castro plots only to learn later on that they may have been used instead to coordinate the JFK assassination.   Braden presumably could have used said transceivers to communicate with the several teams of shooters to coordinate and minimize their shooting to fit with the pre-planned ‘Oswald did it’ scenario.

Presumably the plot called for killing JFK with as few shots fired as possible to make the planned ‘lone nut’ scenario at least somewhat plausible.  If the shooters in the Dal Tex Building, TSBD or the County Records Building in Dealey Plaza had done their jobs more efficiently, and actually killed JFK with their shots from behind, no extra shots would have been needed from the Grassy Knoll or anywhere else!  As it were, one shot from the Dal Tex Building hit JFK from the back, while another missed altogether and hit a curb which in turn splintered and hit a witness named James Tague.  JFK was hit numerous times in the throat and torso and was in bad shape but was still clinging to life before he was finally finished off by the fatal headshot from the right front.

Retired US Steel engineer turned JFK assassination investigator, Tom Wilson, noticed the figure of a gunman with a goatee in the Dal-Tex Building using photonic imaging techniques.  Facial hair was out of vogue in 1963 in the USA because of anti-Castro sentiment.  One such JFK conspiracy suspect who wore a goatee, nevertheless, was a CIA affiliated mercenary named Loran Hall.

Mary Moorman was a 31 year old Dallas resident who went to see the JFK motorcade with her friend Jean Hill on November 22, 1963.  Moorman snapped a Polaroid photograph of the JFK limousine as the assassins’ bullets hit JFK.  Her photograph shows a wounded JFK as well as some of the grassy knoll area in the background.  Moorman and Hill spoke of being harassed by a newspaperman named James Featherstone immediately after the assassination.  The FBI took Moorman’s Polaroids of the JFK motorcade and returned them several weeks later ‘mutilated,’ including a thumbprint which may have been strategically placed to cover-up the engaged red brake-lights of the JFK limo during the shots.  In the face of this pressure, Mary Moorman decided to go along with the likes of Arlen Specter and the Warren Commission for her own safety, and has said very little over the years.  She was excused from testifying to the Warren Commission for an ankle injury of all things.

Over the years, as science and photographic technology have improved, the Moorman photo has been enlarged in the search for critical new details.  In the early 1980′s, researchers Gary Mack and Jack White came to the conclusion that the Moorman photo revealed the images of several figures on the Grassy Knoll.  White flew to MIT where the Moorman photo was subjected to computer enhancement which affirmed their theory.  According to author Jim Marrs in Crossfire, ‘they were told without question that the photo showed a man firing a rifle.  The next day however the chairman of the MIT department involved suddenly gave all materials back to them, and with no explanation, told them the school would no longer participate in any study of the photo.’

Figures of a man in a police uniform dubbed, ‘Badge man’ with a ‘Railroad man’ alongside him can be seen behind the picket fence area with the figure of a soldier in summer uniform some distance in front of them.  This blogger asserts that these 3 individuals were Gordon Arnold , Charles Rogers as ‘Badge man’ and perhaps James Files as the ‘Railroad man’ (spotter/gun disposer).  Roscoe White and JD Tippit were behind the fence as well, but somewhat further down to Rogers and Files’ right side.  Evidently, the conspirators needed as many shooting angles as possible to kill JFK without hitting the First Lady with the exiting bullets.  (Re: James Files, there was a 2nd phony ‘Railroad man’ spotted by witness Ed Hoffman, disposing of a rifle which had been fired at JFK by a phony Secret Service man(Bernard Barker) wearing a suit where the picket fence met the triple underpass.  James Files could have been either of these ‘Railroad men’ conspirators…)

Gordon Arnold was the military man.  He was not an actual conspirator in the assassination despite being caught in the crossfire.  He spoke of diving for cover before being accosted by 2 cops after the shooting was over.  One of the cops kicked Arnold and took his camera film, which corroborates Roscoe White’s account of leaping over the fence and kicking a military man before taking his film and running towards the railroad parking lot.  Mr. Arnold’s presence on the Grassy Knoll in uniform that day was confirmed by motorcade passenger Ralph Yarborough who noted Mr. Arnold’s military inspired duck and cover technique as bullets flew over his position.

Polaroid photos like Ms. Moorman’s are/were harder to forge and alter than other films taken that day because of their instantaneous development.  It is for this reason that the Moorman photo serves as a Rosetta Stone which has allowed researchers to determine whether the Zapruder, Nix and Muchmore films depict altered frames.   Moorman’s photograph contradicts the Zapruder Film and shows that we have been seeing altered copies of that film.  Mary Moorman’s photographic field of view shows her to be in one place while the Zapruder film has her in another place several feet away.  She would literally have to be in 2 places at the same time for this to be!

Astute researchers have also pointed out the fact that the Zapruder Film shows Ms. Moorman wearing white shoes while other films of the day’s events show her in dark shoes!  Additionally, the Zapruder Film shows Mary Moorman on the grass of the plaza, while she recalled stepping out into the street, itself.  A man in the back of a pick-up truck in the stopped traffic on the opposite side of the road from JFK’s limo has also been edited out of copies of the film as well.  Finally, further contradicting the authenticity of the Zapruder Film are the accounts of 59 separate witnesses who recalled that the limo stopped or came to a near stop (so that the shooters could finish off JFK).  These facts establish that the Zapruder Film cannot be used to accurately time or assess the assassination since it was clearly altered.

also:

The photonic imaging research of former US Steel engineer, Tom Wilson, also uncovered evidence that reprints of the Moorman photo may have been altered to conceal a right rear baseball sized exit wound on JFK’s head.  Below is a photo of Wilson’s photo analysis of JFK’s head from the Moorman photo:

ruby_024   Roscoe White's personal copy of the Moorman Photo

‘Honey, it’s like war. The president is a national security threat. If I don’t do it, we’ll be in a nuclear war very soon…matters were taken out of our hands a long time ago.’ – Roscoe White 11/21/63

‘Kennedy has been a pretty good president, but he has to die.  He didn’t carry out his own orders.  If I don’t carry out my orders, I’ll have to die, too.’-Roscoe White to his pastor, Jack Shaw, 1971

‘I was Mandarin, the man behind the stockade fence who fired two shots. ’ -Roscoe White’s diary

‘The diary said after my father shot the President he handed his 7.65 Mauser to the man standing beside him, hurled over the fence, took the film from the military man, whirled around the fence and went through the parking lot.’ -Ricky White, 1990

‘She had seen Roscoe near the fence soon after the shots were fired. And, he saw her. Maybe that’s why she never heard from the police.’ -witness Beverly Oliver, Nightmare in Dallas, 1994.

‘The CIA had selected White and Tippit(sent in separate cars, with Billy Seymour lying down in the backseat of Roscoe White’s vehicle to keep from being spotted)…Under the guise of self-defense and in the line of duty they were to murder the ‘lone gunman.’  However, Tippit had wavered…allowing Oswald to escape.  Thus, White had been forced to kill his partner.’ – Sam Giancana and Chuck Giancana, Double Cross, 1991

‘What he (Ricky White)found were his father’s Marine Corps dog tags, negatives of old family photographs, a faded green textbook with newspaper pictures pasted over the pages, and three cables covered in protective plastic. The cables professed to be orders from Naval intelligence, addressed to Mandarin, using Roscoe White’s serial number. A cable dated October 1963 instructed Mandarin that his next assignment was “to eliminate a national security threat to worldwide peace”                                                                                  

…The green book, or the witness-elimination book, as it came to be called…was some sort of ghoulish scrapbook, apparently compiled at random and embellished with numerical code and hieroglyphics. Inside the front cover was his father’s(Roscoe White’s) name and serial number, and the words “players or witnesses.” Pasted to each page were old newspaper photographs. Some were easily identifiable—Ruby, Oswald, Jack and Robert Kennedy—but others were faces without names. ..Written below (one) picture were the words, “Big Mouth you talked after all.” On another page was a copy of the famous Mary Moorman photograph, taken at the instant the president’s head was blown open. An X drawn across a spot behind the stockade fence marked the place where Mandarin would have stood. Below the picture were these words: “Mandarin kills K uses 7.65 mauser in assassination.”‘– Gary Cartwright, ‘I was Mandarin,’ Texas Monthly , 1990.

**************************************************************

Government shills and ‘debunkers’ say that Roscoe White’s tale of shooting JFK, J.D. Tippit and functioning as a member of the JFK witness elimination program has been debunked, but this is not the case, and many facts remain unchallenged.  These naïve/dishonest types hope that investigators might be fooled into ‘throwing the baby out with the bathwater’ here in Roscoe White’s case.

In the early 1990’s Sam Giancana’s memoirs were published in a book called Double Cross which named Roscoe White as Tippit’s killer.  Some time earlier, a man named Ricky White came upon the scene with his tale of finding out that his deceased father had participated in the JFK assassination.  Ricky White told the tale of finding his dead father’s diary and mementos which implicated his father, Roscoe White, in the dead man’s own words and handwriting.  Ricky White went on to accuse the FBI of stealing the diary from him while they investigated the matter so that he could not present it to the public.

Sometime later, a dishonest JFK researcher named Joe H. West discovered that Ricky’s mother and Roscoe White’s widow, Geneva White, was in desperate need of money for her medical bills.  Evidently, under the advice of Mr. West , Mrs. White concocted a bogus 2nd diary of Roscoe White in the hopes of financial gain.  This work was revealed as a hoax shortly thereafter and was used to discredit Ricky White’s factual account of his father’s authentic diary thereafter.   Ricky White played no part in the bogus 2nd diary scheme and actually pointed out that its weepy tone and handwriting were much different than the genuine diary of Roscoe White.

Mr. West would go on to work on the bogus/embellished tale of James Files in which Files claimed to have killed JFK from the grassy knoll with a special prototype weapon called the Remington Fireball.  No one can corroborate James Files’ claims, however, unlike the other JFK conspirators featured on this blog.  At worst Files may not have been in Dallas at all or at best he has embellished his lesser support role in the assassination into something greater than it truly was.(Files may have been a driver, radio person or gun disposal person in the plot.)  Additionally Mr. Files named an incorrect JD Tippit shooter!

After the JFK assassination there were dozens of witnesses who would need to be bribed, blackmailed, co-opted, ignored, institutionalized, threatened or murdered to keep the ‘lone gunman’ story straight.  Roscoe White, along with the aforementioned dirty mortician/embalmer John Liggett and LBJ goon Mac Wallace likely were assigned to the ‘JFK Witness Elimination Team’ to take care of those who would not go along with the Media and Warren Commission’s version of events.

Some pertinent Roscoe White facts which still stand:

-Lee Harvey Oswald and White had been part of the same Marine unit and served together at least 3 separate bases previously.

-The Whites and the Oswalds both moved to Dallas in 1963.

-Roscoe White’s wife and Ricky White’s mother Geneva White worked for Jack Ruby in 1963 at the Carousel Club.

-Roscoe White was a member of the Dallas Police Force in 1963 and was a photographic expert.

-White worked across the street from Officer J.D. Tippit.

-The Whites prospered financially immediately after the JFK assassination.

-Roscoe White was killed in a mysterious accident thought to have been a deliberately rigged homicide.  Reverend Jack Shaw said White told him ‘the explosion was no accident,’ and that, ‘he saw a man running from the fire,’ before he died in 1971.

-On his deathbed Roscoe White admitted to his pastor that he had killed several people under contract for the CIA in the USA and abroad.

-Roscoe White had an original copy of the infamous Oswald backyard photo with rifle, pistol and Communist paraphernalia and an Oswald autopsy photo in his own personal effects.  (Was Oswald’s head superimposed on a picture of Roscoe White for this damning piece of evidence?  Or did mole/informant Oswald merely take the picture in the course of following numerous other self-incriminating actions from his CIA handlers?)

-Mobster Sam Giancana named Roscoe White as J.D. Tippit’s killer to his brother Chuck in the mid 1970’s.  Sam Giancana’s memoirs were not published until 1992.

Below is a documentary called ‘Evidence of Revision.’ It contains a segment on Roscoe White from 15:39 to 30:45 in the clip:

Below is another clip of Ricky White discussing his father’s tale with a younger, more-inquisitive, Bill O’Reilly and a disinformation specialist named Harold Weisberg.  Evidently, Mr Weisberg’s role was to complain about other JFK conspiracies which he personally did not endorse, while promoting his own personal conspiracy conclusions.

J.D.Tippit: Dirty Cop, JFK Conspirator and unwitting body double for JFK on the autopsy table?

JFKtippit4

‘No matter what happens today, I want you to know that I love you.’ J.D. Tippit to his son Allan, 11/22/1963

‘Tippit’s car was the one that stopped at Oswald’s house and beeped, and then picked him up down the street.’ Harrison Edward Livingstone, High Treason, 1990

‘Tippit was shot by two men, one of whom was Billy Seymour…six witnesses, ignored by the Warren Commission, saw two men shoot Tippit. One of them resembled Oswald…Seymour ran toward the Texas Theater.’ -Richard Sprague, The Taking of America 1-2-3, 1976

‘The officer was getting out of the car, and apparently he’d been talking to the man(Roscoe White) that was standing by the car. The policeman got out of the car, and as he walked past the windshield of the car, where it’s kind of lined up over the hood of the car, where this other man shot him.’ -Witness Domingo Benavides to The Warren Commission

‘The CIA had selected White and Tippit(sent in separate cars, with Billy Seymour lying down in the backseat of Roscoe White’s vehicle to keep from being spotted)…Under the guise of self-defense and in the line of duty they were to murder the ‘lone gunman.’  However, Tippit had wavered…allowing Oswald to escape.  Thus, White had been forced to kill his partner.’ – Sam Giancana and Chuck Giancana, Double Cross, 1991

*************************************************************************************************************************************

J.D. Tippit was a dirty cop who knew Oswald and Jack Ruby and a JFK assassination conspirator in a non-shooting role. Witness Gordon Arnold described encountering 2 cops seconds after the assassination on the grassy knoll. One had ‘dirty hands’ while the other was ‘crying’ and holding a rifle. One of the cops kicked Arnold and took his camera film of JFK’s motorcade.   These two cops were likely Roscoe White (wearing a DPD uniform without a hat) and J.D. Tippit.  Roscoe White claimed to have been one of the JFK shooters in his diary, while Tippit may have been there to keep nosy potential eyewitnesses and people with cameras away from the grassy knoll area before and after the assassination. No one can pin down his exact whereabouts until approximately 12:40 PM that afternoon, while JFK was killed at 12:30.

4 witnesses at the Dobbs House restaurant in Dallas recalled that J.D. Tippit and Lee Harvey Oswald were acquaintances and were seen eating breakfast there on many occasions.  Additionally, witness Earl Crater said that he had seen Oswald, Jack Ruby and Tippit eat breakfast together at the Pig and Whistle restaurant on numerous occasions.  Tippit may have been under the impression that his role would be to act as interference on the grassy knoll and then to drive the real Oswald to nearby Red Bird Airport to catch a flight out of the area.  Author Anthony Summers mentioned in his book,  Conspiracy,  that the doomed officer may have been compromised and roped into the conspiracy after he impregnated another man’s wife.  Tippit may have balked and wavered at the assignment to kill his friend Oswald when he was informed of the last minute change of plans.

Witnesses reported seeing Tippit run into a records shop to use the phone around 1PM, before rushing back to his car.  Witness James Andrews actually reported being cut off and pulled over by Tippit who looked in the backseat floor area for something in his vehicle(was he trying to identify his fellow conspirators?).    Tippit  may have actually picked up the real Oswald and driven him to the Texas Theater that day before doubling back to that same neighborhood where he would be shot and killed by Roscoe White and Oswald lookalike, Billy Seymour. The real Oswald arrived at the Texas Theater between 1:00 and 1:07 according to witness, Butch Burroughs, while Tippit was not shot until 1:15 PM.

finally:

It has been stated that Tippit’s body was lost for an hour and that during this time, conspirators switched the body of the dead police officer with that of the late President.’researcher Bill Drenas, Tippit After the Murder, 1998.

‘Liggett’s younger brother John, now deceased, was a mortuary worker in Dallas when Kennedy was shot in November 1963.  A former wife of John Liggett said her husband was called to Parkland Hospital, where the president was taken after he was shot in 1963, according to the show.  She said she thinks her ex-husband used his skills at preparing bodies to do something to Kennedy’s corpse.’ - Grace Murphy, The Vero Beach Herald, 3/19/05.

Dishonest autopsy photographs were created; skull x-rays were altered; the contents of the autopsy report changed over time as different versions were produced; and the brain photographs in the National Archives cannot be photographs of President Kennedy’s brain—they are fraudulent, substitute images of someone else’s brain.’ – Douglas Horne, Inside the Assassination Records Review Board, 2009.

*********************************************************************************************************************************

Some researchers have even gone so far as to speculate that J.D. Tippit was killed so that his body might be used by the other JFK conspirators to fake JFK’s autopsy photos.  Tippit’s body had a small headwound , while JFK’s head had a massive headwound.  The fallen policeman’s corpse matched better with the Warren Commission and Arlen Specter’s lone gunman theory while the extra set of X-rays could be used to confound the doctors involved in assessing JFK’s true wounds from multiple shooters.  Additionally, there was actually a time when both bodies were at Parkland Hospital.  Some even allege that J.D. Tippit’s body now lies in JFK’s grave at Arlington National Cemetery, with JFK’s corpse in Tippit’s grave in one final brazen act of defilement!

Below is a link to a clip from a banned episode of ‘The Men Who Killed Kennedy Part 7- The Smoking Guns’ in which a woman claims that her ex-husband, John Liggett, took part in exactly such a body swapping/body alteration scheme:

David Sanchez Morales: the CIA’s thug of many faces & link between the JFK & RFK assassinations

David Sanchez Morales montage

David Sanchez Morales montage

‘That no good son of a bitch motherf*****!’ He started yelling about what a wimp Kennedy was and talking about how he had worked on the Bay of Pigs and how he had to watch all the men he had recruited and trained get wiped out because of Kennedy…he added: “Well, we took care of that son of a bitch, didn’t we?”‘ -David Sanchez Morales’ friend Ruben Carbajal, Gaeton Fonzi, The Last Investigation, 1993. 

‘Mrs. Ruby Henderson, saw two men standing back from a window on one of the upper floors of the Book Depository…one of the men “had dark hair…a darker complexion than the other.” At the time, it occurred to her that he might have been a Mexican…Mrs. Henderson saw the two men less than six minutes before the assassination.’ – Anthony Summers, Conspiracy, 1991.

******************************************************************************************************************************************************

David Sanchez Morales was a CIA man of many places and many different faces.  He was of Mexican and Native American descent and could pass himself off as someone from numerous different ethnic groups.   After making a name for himself in assisting in CIA backed coup efforts in Guatemala and Venezuela, Mr. Sanchez Morales moved to the Miami area to work on the CIA’s efforts to overthrow Fidel Castro from Cuba.  He ran in circles with top CIA spooks such as David Atlee Phillips, Tom Clines, Ted Shackley, William Harvey and E. Howard Hunt during these missions and was credited for his amoral tenacity,  ‘If the Agency needed someone action-oriented, he was at the top of the list. If the U.S. government as a matter of policy needed someone or something neutralized, Dave would do it, including things that were repugnant to a lot of people.

Sanchez Morales and the CIA trained many Cuban exiles for the failed 1961 Bay of Pigs invasion.  JFK inherited the on-going Cuban intrigues when he took office in January 1961.   He was not on board with many of the reckless, provocative tactics of the CIA in regards to Castro and called off air support for this raid, factoring into the deaths of more than 100 Cuban exiles and the capture of 1200 more men that Sanchez Morales had personally trained.  Evidently, David Sanchez Morales never forgot this slight and could rationalize his role in the JFK assassination as getting even for JFK getting his soldiers killed.  This suspect meets the description of the dark skinned Latin that Air Force Sgt. Robert G. Vinson saw boarding his flight along with Oswald impostor, Billy Seymour, in the hours after the JFK assassination.

Moments prior to the JFK assassination, ‘an elderly negro’ (likely dark complexioned David Sanchez Morales) was seen on the 6th Floor of the Texas School Book Depository with a rifle by witnesses Mr. and Mrs. Arnold Rowland:

After the assassination witnesses reported seeing Oswald picked up by a ‘negro’ in a station wagon which belonged to Ruth Paine, Oswald’s landlady and CIA-affiliated babysitter.  This was David Sanchez Morales picking the real Oswald up to drop him off at his other Dallas rooming house so that he might be killed there by conspirators Roscoe White, J.D. Tippit and Billy Seymour.  Mrs. Paine would go on to be the Warren Commission whitewash’s star witness against ‘lone nut’ Oswald!  Additionally, her husband Michael Paine, was  a higher-up at Bell Helicopter which profited mightily from the Vietnam War which Kennedy did not want.

Finally, in recent years allegations have surfaced that David Sanchez Morales was also on the scene at the RFK assassination in 1968.  One industrious researcher looked over all the available film of that evening in a search for Mr. Sanchez Morales in the crowd overseeing that particular Kennedy assassination plot.  On that Kennedy killing assignment,  a crooked security guard likely killed RFK and a low IQ’d simpleton with a major gambling debt took the fall as patsy.

Witness Robert Vinson: My flight home detoured and picked up an Oswald lookalike in Dallas…

Robert G. Vinson was an Air Force Sgt. working in Colorado Springs, CO in 1963. He had gone to Washington, DC in the days before the JFK assassination to formally protest being passed over for promotion. On the morning of the JFK assassination, Vinson had settled his promotion troubles and hopped a flight back to Colorado from Andrews Air Force Base in MD before being swept up into history.

In Flight from Dallas, Vinson described being on an unmarked C-54 cargo plane with 2 pilots he did not speak with on his homeward flight. At 12:30PM, one of the pilots announced that JFK had been shot, and the plane suddenly made a 90 degree southward turn towards Dallas.  The aircraft eventually landed on a road construction site on the Trinity River floodplain and picked up 2 mysterious passengers who were hiding near a tool shed near the landing site. Vinson described the first passenger as a tall, dark complexioned man who looked Cuban or Latino. This individual meets the description of the CIA’s David Sanchez Morales. More interestingly, however, the 2nd passenger struck the Sgt. as a spitting image of Lee Harvey Oswald!

Vinson further recalled that the 2 men were dressed as construction workers wearing coveralls and that they came aboard the plane and sat up front behind the cockpit without exchanging any words to anyone. This strange flight would go on to land in Roswell, NM, where Vinson’s fellow passengers rapidly departed the plane and scattered upon arrival. The Sergeant would have to hitch a bus ride from NM to CO to finish his trip home the next morning. From here, Vinson tells of being harassed and ultimately recruited by the CIA to work on several lucrative CIA spy plane projects based out of Roswell in an attempt to bribe/co-opt him and keep him silent about the things he saw that fateful day.

The aforementioned Oswald lookalike was likely accomplished Oswald impostor, Billy Seymour.  He and David Sanchez Morales both lived in Arizona at the time, adding logistical plausibility.

Billy Seymour: the Oswald Impostor

Billy Seymour montage

‘In mid- to late September the assassination group decided to make Oswald the patsy in the murder. They had discussed the need for a patsy in the earliest meetings in New Orleans. Billy Seymour, who resembled Oswald, was selected to use Oswald’s name and to plant evidence in New Orleans, Dallas and Mexico, which could later be used to frame him.’  -Richard E. Sprague , The Taking of America 1-2-3, 1976.

‘The most important evidence showing that Seymour and another one of the assassination team shot Tippit is the fact that six witnesses, ignored by the Warren Commission, saw two men shoot Tippit. One of them resembled Oswald. (The other was CIA man, Roscoe White, per Sam Giancana’s memoirs.) They ran away from the scene in opposite directions. Seymour ran toward the Texas Theater, throwing the planted shells up in the air so that witnesses would see and recover them. The other assassin ran in the opposite direction. There is some indication that Seymour entered the theater in a manner to draw attention and then left before the Oswald arrest. While the shells recovered were found to match Oswald’s pistol, none of the bullets recovered from Tippit’s body matched.‘   -Richard E. Sprague , The Taking of America 1-2-3, 1976

**********************************************************************************************************************************************
There are numerous reports that the CIA had at least one, if not more, Lee Harvey Oswald impostors roaming the streets planting implicating evidence in the pre-framing of the eventual JFK assassination patsy.  The Oswald impostor(s) were all over the place before the JFK assassination making spectacles of themselves(as planned by David Atlee Phillips and co.) so that people would consciously remember ‘that wacko Oswald guy’ after the JFK assassination. William ‘Billy’ Seymour was one of such impostors with Charles Rogers also pitching in when necessary.

One Oswald impostor was seen shooting at other people’s targets at a Dallas firing range while yelling and starting trouble.  One phony Oswald test drove new cars and bragged about how great life in Russia was.  One was picked up as a hitchhiker near Dealey Plaza and started a conversation with the driver about shooting people with rifles out of the blue.  After Officer J.D. Tippit was shot, Oswald impostor Seymour conspicuously threw several shells in the air and ran from the scene to lead witnesses and police to the Texas Theater where the real Lee Harvey Oswald had gone per his instructions.

James W. Douglass, author of JFK and the Unspeakable, recounted the tales of Texas Theater concession stand operator, Butch Burroughs, and adjacent business owner, Bernard J. Haire, ‘they saw an Oswald double arrested and taken to a police car in the back alley only minutes after the arrest of Lee Harvey Oswald.’  Burroughs described ‘an Oswald lookalike,’ who, ‘looked almost like Oswald, like he was his brother or something.’

Here Butch Burroughs speaks of the arrival of the real Oswald at the Texas Theater at a time (1:00-1:07 PM) before J.D. Tippit was shot at 1:15 PM:
