This is what I was referencing see post 52 on the Lee Harvey Oswald thread. I have reposted it hereAn Unfounded Observation about Lee Oswald?
I have read many allegations about Lee Harvey Oswald
, many true and some utterly ridiculous. Regarding the latter, there is the example that he was a "card carrying member of the Communist Party.
" Even being a member of the Fair Play for Cuba Committee, is not the same a being a member of the Communist Party.
Which leads me to the following allegation made by Charlie Kertz. It is an extremely important allegation, for reasons that will become obvious after reading the following.....From Benson's Who's Who in the JFK Assassination.
SOURCE: HSCA Report 65.6 KERTZ, CHARLIE, Oswald
witness; founder of the New Orleans Charlie's Saints Marching Band. Kertz was the deputy constable who, in 1963, evicted Oswald
from his apartment at 4907 Magazine Street
. Kertz said to New Orleans Times-Picayune columnist Angus Lind in 1991. "It was a Friday afternoon, and it was very unusual to evict someone on a Friday afternoon."
According to Lind, "Kertz said he confronted Oswald with the order to evict, showed him his credentials and told him to get his personal belongings out of the furnished apartment; otherwise they would be placed on the sidewalk, routine eviction procedure." "The guy was so weird,"
said Kertz. "He didn't say a word. There was a woman with him who had a child. He came down the steps, took a right, and headed toward Audubon Park."
After that, Kertz never saw him again. According to Lind, "[Kertz] and another constable went in, put a baby bed and some clothes on the sidewalk, then opened a closet and found three rifles. They unloaded them and put them out on the sidewalk. They then removed about 30 paperbacks from the closet. . . .and underneath them were two handguns, which they unloaded and put under the mattress of the baby bed
. Kertz said he figured Oswald
was "some kind of hunter." Neighbors of Oswald's when he lived at the Magazine Street
apartment in New Orleans remember him as an odd duck. There are reports Oswald was often seen walking backwards.

Getting back to Nechiporenko, and the whole Oswald in Russia angle. One aspect of Nechiporenko's book which I do find very interesting is his account of LIOVAL-1
see page 272 including footnote
Photograph of "Mystery Man" taken by LILINK/LIEMPTY surveillance cameras in Mexico City (Warren Commission Exhibit 237). The account of the person photographed by the Robotstar Pulse camera [is explained by him as follows, which I find worth noting:
When I first saw the photograph which did not resemble Oswald in the slightest, it produced some vague associations, but nothing concrete. Later looking at three blowups of the individual dressed in similar and different clothing, something began to stir in my memory. The person in the photograph was a former American serviceman, discharged for reasons of health. I cannot remember the date and purpose of his first visit to our embassy, but in our conversations with him, it became clear that he was psychologically disturbed. Subsequently, he came to see us several times, and the intervals between each visit increased......

I always associated documents, he signed off on etc., as Soviet...His diary recovery operations were, of course invaluable
