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, however.  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. Afterwards, 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.

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 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.
