James R. Leavelle, Detective at Lee Harvey Oswald’s Side, Dies at 99
@Castle-Yankee54 may know details about this?...
I hadn't heard that he had passed.....what kind of info were you looking for"
Where did they all go to buy those hats?
I do like Leavelles hat.
There was a documentary about the assassination on TV recently and Leavelle was one of the people interviewed. Immediately after Oswald was shot, he could see that the injury was probably fatal. He told Oswald that he was badly injured and begged him to confess anything he wanted to say before he passed but unfortunately Oswald said nothing.
I have seen that interview as well.....pretty straight forward guy.
Hi CY, hope you're well old mate. I agree that he comes across as an authentic sort of guy that played his part in a huge historical moment!
The documentary also interviewed Buell Frazier who, simply out of courtesy, drove Oswald to work the day of the assassination, not knowing anything of his plans to kill the president. Only 19 at the time, Frazier's life would be forever tarnished by the gesture offered to his coworker. For the rest of his life he would be accused of conspiring to help Oswald. Very sad.
He had ridden with him a few times.....but I agree the enigma that followed him was unfortunate.
Especially when he was cleared rather quickly......except for those looking for many other conspirators.
Yes, I think the Kennedy Assassination, due to its notoriety, is unique compared to most crimes. There are people wanting to find conspiracies everywhere and connect anyone they can, regardless of the lack of evidence.
Well said.....not to mention making up evidence.
