(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 Harry Weatherford 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.

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 Zapruder 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:

Billy Seymour: the Oswald Impostor

billy seymour

‘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 (1:10 -1:15 PM):

Charles Rogers: Shooter of JFK and MLK?

Charles Rogers: Shooter of JFK and MLK?

The above Left picture shows an artist’s depiction of the mysterious ‘Raoul’ based on James Earl Ray’s description. Ray was a small time crook who said that ‘Raoul’ framed him for Martin Luther King’s assassination on April 4th 1968 in Memphis, Tennessee.

The above Right photo shows the face of the ‘short tramp’ arrested in a railroad boxcar after the JFK assassination. This individual was ultimately identified as Charles Rogers, and was known to have gone by several aliases which included ‘Richard Montoya’ “Charles Robeson’ ‘Charles Montoya’ ‘Carlos Rojas’ and ‘Frenchy’ among others.  Rogers has not been seen or heard from officially since 1965 after police found the dissected remains of his parents in the refrigerator of their Houston home.  The Man on the Grassy Knoll authors John R. Craig and Philip A. Rogers theorized that the killings may have been caused by Mr. Rogers’ mother confronting her son about his activities during the JFK assassination and his subsequent several month disappearance thereafter in which he apparently fled to South America.

Charles Rogers was legally declared dead in 1975.  Before his death in 2007, longtime CIA Spook and convicted Watergate burglar, E. Howard Hunt, recalled a ‘French Gunman Grassy Knoll’ in his own personal, hierarchical, chart of fellow JFK assassination conspirators.

Chauncey Holt: I brought Phony Secret Service credentials to Dallas for the JFK Conspirators

‘We had been told an incident was going to be created which could be laid at the door of pro-Castro Cubans. The word attempted assassination was never used…It was such an elaborate set up. When you think back, I couldn’t possibly have been so duped. When we saw him on TV and he said, “I’m just a patsy!” I tell you the word really rang home.’ – Chauncey Holt 1991

In the above video, Chauncey Marvin Holt expresses his feelings of remorse and anger about what happened to framed, sacrificed patsy, Oswald.  Holt was a criminal renaissance man who dabbled in counterfeiting, forgery, accounting fraud, weapons testing and modifications and other criminal schemes for Meyer Lansky and the CIA during his career.  He was picked up with Charles Harrelson and Charles Rogers as the ‘3 Tramps’ arrested in a railroad car and quietly released by Dallas PD a few hours after the JFK assassination.

In a long, fascinating 1991 interview Holt revealed some startling new facts about the JFK assassination:

-Holt worked at a (CIA & Meyer Lansky-financed) California company called LASCO which made badges for law enforcement personnel throughout the country

-on November 15th 1963 orders came through for 10-15 sets of phony Secret Service badges, credentials and lapel pins to be created and brought to Dallas for November 21st.

-Holt was also told to bring a shipment of specially made ammunition and handguns equipped with silencers to Dallas

-Holt drove to Dallas to deliver the goods in a car with CIA pilot, James J. Canty and mobsters Leo Moceri and Charles Nicoletti and did not actually make it to Dallas until the morning of November 22 due to some car and weather problems.

-Holt was ordered to leave the phony Secret Service credentials in a pickup truck parked near the railroad area in Dealey Plaza, concluding his delivery mission.

-Holt was told that there would be some sort of disturbance during the JFK visit to Dallas which would be blamed on Pro-Castro supporters for the CIA/Organized Crime’s political benefit and that he could flee to a specifically marked, unlocked railroad car if things got too wild after the planned incident.

-Holt took a walk around Dealey Plaza before JFK’s motorcade came through and noticed several professional hitmen he had encountered in prior CIA/Organized Crime activities

-after the shooting and the related chaos ensued, Holt encountered Charles Harrelson and Charles Rogers and the group proceeded to find the special railroad car to hide in  (Holt confirmed that there were phony IDs made for Charles Harrelson and Charles Rogers in his shipment.)  The trio hid in the car for almost 2 hours listening to police radio broadcasts on a state of the art walkie-talkie Holt had been given, before police finally opened the door and found them inside.

-the ‘3 Tramps’ were taken into Dallas PD custody where they were not handcuffed, frisked, interrogated, fingerprinted or jailed.  Eventually an FBI man named Gordon Shanklin told them they were free to go. (Shanklin also had his FBI underling James Hosty interview Oswald while he was in custody prior to his assassination by Jack Ruby. Hosty never said or produced notes as to what Oswald told him.  Many now surmise that Hosty was Oswald’s FBI handler and that informant Oswald was feeding him details of the JFK assassination plot he had infiltrated and hoped to thwart.)

-Holt left police custody and hopped a flight out of Dallas with James Canty from nearby Redbird Airport en route back to California

-he was imprisoned under an alias in the 1970’s so that the House Committee on Assassinations could not find him to call him to testify (or to have been killed with numerous other JFK players and witnesses before they could tell their tales!)

Finally:

Some have disputed Mr. Holt’s claim that he was the ‘old tramp’ from the JFK assassination, but check out what happens when one of Mr. Holt’s personal family photos is superimposed on the ‘3 Tramps’ photo.

Here are 3 links which detail Holt’s claim of being the JFK assassination’s Phony Secret Service Badge and Credential maker and deliverer:

(Did the JFK conspirators get a Secret Service badge to copy and counterfeit from one of Abraham Bolden’s sloppy, hard partying, Secret Service co-workers?)

One of the JFK Shooters: Actor Woody Harrelson’s Dad?

‘We were instructed to prepare certain forged documents for Charles Harrelson, a Dallas racketeer and gunman…A Chevrolet with Arizona plates, drove into the lot, circled the entire area and parked very near the railroad tower.  Almost immediately, Richard Montoya(aka Charles Rogers) and Charles Harrelson approached me.  I had identification and handguns which I was instructed to deliver to them… Harrelson and Montoya strolled away, but not together…Harrelson, Montoya and I were dressed in work clothes, and carried credentials identifying us as undercover agents for the ATF.’– Chauncey Holt and Wim. Daankbaar, Self-portrait of a Scoundrel, 2013.

Charles Harrelson was a major crook in Texas who was ultimately jailed for killing a judge.  He was also picked up, photographed and released as one of the ‘3 Tramps’ in Dealey Plaza that fateful day. Here he speaks of the JFK assassination in a prison interview.  That shooter in this blog’s header photo from the Nix film is probably him!

Was Woody Harrelson’s Hollywood career a payback to Woody’s dad for his service in the JFK Assassination?  Was Oliver Stone laughing in our faces at an inside joke by casting Woody in Natural Born Killers after he made JFK? Woody Harrelson is literally a natural born killer from his dad. (I like some of Woody Harrelson’s movies, but in hindsight, many of his roles could have been played just as easily by Matthew McConaughey or any idiot for that matter!)

also:

Woody Harrelson’s murderer dad got 6 minutes of coverage in an episode of The Men Who Killed Kennedy from the 1980’s!  Charles Harrelson is profiled between 23:20 and 28:30 of this clip.  (Sorry in advance it wasn’t cut into just the Charles Harrelson part, but it is worth a viewing…)

The Orville Nix Film

Orville Nix was an air-conditioning engineer who shot a film of JFK’s motorcade with his camera which actually shows one of the shooters(Charles Harrelson) firing a round at JFK from behind the Picket Fence/Grassy Knoll area!  He turned in his film to the FBI after the assassination only to have it returned to him altered and missing a few frames(the frames which clearly show the shooter and the rifle smoke had to be altered).  Eventually Mr. Nix sold the film to United Press International, after turning down prior offers from Life Magazine and CBS, who promptly hid the fully incriminating footage away from the public for decades!
