Inkol's information is interesting, but I was under the impression that the tale of his showing up to work pale and sweating, with mud on his clothes and throwing up, aside from the car having been parked in the lot behind the knoll, were the reasons
why he was phoned in and arrested by the Dallas Police as a suspect, by his co-workers. http://mcadams.posc....du/bethell6.htm
Friday, February 16, 1968
Bill Boxley arrived back, apparently now convinced of the involvement of Jack Lawrence. Why? Because of Boxley's conversations recently with two Downtown-Lincoln Mercury ex-employees named Rozelle and Falzone. Rozelle points out that Lawrence was hired by one Lorenz, a German (CIA etc., according to Boxley,) who is also "involved". I pointed out to Boxley that the only way we can get anything solid on Lawrence is to find the actual person who retrieved the car in Dealey plaza. Boxley thinks it was Lorenz.[/QUOTE]
This comes from DoubleCross - why did Sam 'Mooney' Giancana list him as one of Marcello's shooter?
Marcello provided Jack Lawrence and Charles Harrelson as
gunmen on the grassy knoll area.[/QUOTE]
Let me highlight a few sections:http://karws.gso.uri...from_front.html
[QUOTE]Jack Lawrence and His Borrowed CarAbout a month before the assassination
, a man named Jack Lawrence was hired at Downtown Lincoln-Mercury, a Dallas car dealership that was only two blocks from Dealey Plaza
. Lawrence got the job by providing job references from New Orleans
. These references were later found to be phony.
Lawrence was known as an ardent right-wing speaker, and reportedly had been an expert marksmen in the military. The night before the assassination, Lawrence borrowed a car from the dealership, saying he needed it for a date.Lawrence did not show up for work in the morning.
However, thirty minutes after the shooting, he came hurrying through the company's show room. He was pale and sweating and had mud on his clothes. He rushed into the men's room and threw up. He claimed he had been ill, and that he had tried to return the car but was forced to park it because of traffic. His co-workers became suspicious and called the police.
Later, the car Lawrence had borrowed was found--it was discovered in the parking lot behind the wooden fence on the grassy knoll
(Marrs 339-340; Groden and Livingstone 133-134).
Lawrence was arrested by the Dallas police that evening. However, like other potentially important suspects who were arrested that day, he was released in short order and with little or no investigation into who he was or what he had been doing at the time of the shooting. Lawrence left Dallas as soon as he was released.[/
I was unable to determine Marrs reference info. Apparently the Groden and Livingston reference is not 'High Treason.'
Are these all just coincidences?
I couldn't find the Police Report on his arrest. http://spot.acorn.ne.../fredonia3.html
[QUOTE]Albert Bogard was not the only car salesman from downtown Lincoln Mercury to attract the attention of NBC and the FBI. On December 5th, eight days after they were requested to find Jack Lawrence that two Dallas FBI agents finally inquired about him at Downtown Lincoln Mercury. Frank Pizzo told the agents that Lawrence had been fired on November 23, 1963, but he did not tell them why. Instead, Pizzo told the FBI that Lawrence had told another salesman Robert Teter that he (Lawrence) had received a bad conduct discharge from the military because he had tried to help Fidel Castro overthrow Batista in Cuba.
By December 7, this is what the FBI had been told about Jack Lawrence and these things are not necessarily true but this is what the FBI had been told.[/QUOTE]
From the French JFK Forum - you gotta love the translation:
[QUOTE]See here for a post of Dennis Morissette unfortunately remained without continuation...
Jack Lawrence was a young guy of South Charleston in Virginia, which is presented at the beginning of October 1963 in Dallas for a job of salesman of cars in a dealer of Lincoln Mercury, located at two corners of street of Dealey Plaza. It was barded eulogistic certificates and references for employment similar to News-Orleans; it was thus engaged illico. Amusing detail: Jack Lawrence did not succeed in selling only one car throughout all its engagement and later, of the researchers will discover that all the references of Lawrence were completely cans.
November 21, Jack Lawrence obtained the right to borrow a car by telling from its owner that it had a very significant appointment.
November 22 in the morning, Jack Lawrence was not seen with its work. However, about thirty minutes after the assassination of JFK, veiled it emerging in the hall of exposure of the dealer, sweating with large drops, the dye pÔlichon and the fringues crades of mud. It precipitated in the wash-hand basins for men to go to vomit its tripe.
Then Jack Lawrence told with the other employees that it was sick, that it had wanted to bring back the car but that he had to park it further because of the bad circulation. Two other employees left to seek the car and found it behind the barrier
out of wooden with the top of Grassy Knoll overhanging Dealey Plaza. The employees brought back the car and prÚvenirent the DPD of the suspect behavior of Lawrence. This one was questioned and slackened on November 23. It immediately left its job and Dallas to return ouin-ouin in his parents in South Charleston. What a unpleasant young imp!
Lastly, it appears:
- Lawrence Jack was classified expert marksman (the most row for the gunners) to the US Air Force...
- Lawrence Jack was one minute men
, it did not like the blacks, it did not like the commies, it did not like the homos but it loved much its dad, his mom, the bimbos, the frik and AmeriKKKe...
- Lawrence Jack would have danced a whole night with Canted Lounge with the blonde and pulpy Beverly Oliver, while Jack Ruby had a coffee in company of a good friend. Beverly told that Lawrence was made call "Donny Allen Lance"...
- Lawrence Jack would have pointed L.A. in Dallas, Jack Lawrence adored Hollywood and the company of the actor Woody Harrelson, wire of the killer of elite, Charles Harrelson...
- This old stubborn person of Sam G would have told with his Chuck brother that Jack Lawrence belonged to the team of Grassy Knoll this famous 22 November in the neighbourhoods of midday thirty...
Which old devil, this Momo... -)[/QUOTE]
His profile is amazingly similar to many of the other suspects. Vaganov could probably tell a similar tale about why he shoved his clothes into the Telephone booth.
White male. Ex-Military. Original Pro-Castro leanings, later allegedly Anti-Communist. Possibly a member of the Minutemen. Allegedly a racist. In Dallas one month before the operation. Leaves Dallas the day after the operation. New Orleans connection. Sam Giancana knows his name and associates him with Marcello. Allegedly used an alias. Mixed up with the 'Oswald' test drive.
