JFK assassination researchers Jim DiEugenio and Debra Conway have kindly posted an article I wrote concerning Oswald’s dark gray blue Jacket on the CTKA website. The article is entitled “The mystery of Ce163”, and can be read here. In this article, I argue that the dark gray blue Jacket (designated Warren Commission exhibit 163) was not discovered inside the TSBD as the Warren Commission told us that it was.
I also argue that the man who allegedly discovered it; a TSBD employee named Frankie Kaiser, was by all likelihood an FBI informant. My appreciation goes out to assassination researchers Greg Parker, Lee Farley, and Richard Gilbride for all the help they provided me. If you have read the article and have questions and comments to make, please don’t hesitate to post them in the comments section below, or to email them to me.
Finally, I would like to express my deepest appreciation to both Ms Conway and Mr DiEugenio for deciding to post my article on the CTKA website.
Note to readers:
There is one pertinent detail in my Jacket essay which I had previously neglected to mention. During his interview with the FBI on the second of December, 1963, Buell Wesley Frazier claimed that when he drove Oswald to the residence of Ruth Paine on the day before the assassination, he observed Oswald wearing a gray Jacket (see here). When Frazier testified before the Warren Commission, he was shown both Ce162 and Ce163, and denied that he had ever seen Oswald wear either one of those Jackets. If Frazier’s recollection is correct, then the Jacket which he saw Oswald wearing was the flannel-wool looking jacket which he also claimed he saw Oswald wearing on the morning of the assassination.
It is also important to keep in mind that Marina Oswald testified that when Oswald arrived at the residence of Ruth Paine on the day before the assassination, he was allegedly wearing Ce162! (See here). If this assertion is true, then not only does it contradict Frazier’s claim, but then Oswald could not have retrieved this Jacket when he arrived at his rooming house on 1026 North Beckley!
