Here's what little I've got. Credit V Palamara.

An army code breaker, he was stationed at Metz military base, where he was deciphering, And analyzing messages from Western Europe. He intercepted two messages one in mid October, and again on 2nd November announcing the assassination of JFK. He was not able to communicate outside the base without an Officers permission(doesn't say whether said permission was witheld) He asked one of his friends who was on leave to send a letter to RFK (doesn't say whether said letter was sent) Dinkin claimed that the assassination would occur around November 28th 1963 (day Karin Kupincet is found dead) He was latter taken into custody, and hospitalized.

Stephen,

Here's what little I've got. Credit V Palamara.


Here's what I have compiled about Dinkin:

Document # 104-10015-10231 is a two page cable. This is a wild one. This originates from "John Scelso" C/WH/3. It is dated November 29, 1963. It went to the White House, State Dept. and the FBI. A report alleging that there was advance knowledge on the assassination of President Kennedy. On November 4 1963 a U.S. Army PFC. Eugene B. Dinkin, went AWOL from his unit HQ Co. U.S. Army general depot, Metz, France. He was scheduled for a psychiatric examination that same day. He apparently entered Switzerland using a false Army identification card with forged travel orders. On November 6 and 7, 1963 he appeared in the press room of the United Nations office in Geneva and told reporters he was being persecuted. He voluntarily returned to his unit on November 11, 1963.

On November 26, 1963 a Geneva journalist named Alex Des Fontaines who was a stringer for TIME-LIFE and was a correspondent for Radio Canada was reported to be filing a story about Dinkin's story. Dinkin said that "they" were plotting against Kennedy and that "something" would happen in Texas. The last paragraph of the cable is interesting, "All aspects of this story were known, as reported above, by U. S. Military authorities and have been reported by Military attache cable through Military channels."

I went through the FBI's reels released in 1977 and found some interesting stuff on Dinkin. It would not surprise me if he'd "mad as a hatter" NOW, because he claimed to have been mentally tortured by the Army. Those of you who order our Nagell file (available by March from CTKA) will see that that's exactly what was done to Nagell, in spades. Anyway - this is from a 9 page FBI doc on the guy, dated 4/9/64. It's in report form and looks like this was what they gave the Warren Commission. Quote on: EUGENE B. DINKIN In December, 1963, it was reported that Beth Cox, who was residing in France with an American schoolmate, had a boyfriend named Howard C. Cowen stationed in Metz, France, with the United States Army.

Betch Cox was informed one of Howard C. Cowen's acquaintances "translated or decoded the G.I. paper's headlines to read 'Kennedy will be assassinated Thanksgiving Day,' and later changed it to read the very day he died.' On March 4, 1964, Lieutenant Colonel W. L. Adams, Jr., Assistand Chief of Staff, G-2, furnished the following...: Captain Howard C. Cowen, assigned to the United States Army Depot at Metz, France, advised on February 18, 1964, that during the evening of November 22, 1963, he conversed with an acquaintance named Dennis De Witt. During the conversation, De Witt said that a friend of his, Eugene Dinkin, had predicted President Kennedy's assassination for November 22, 1963. According to De Witt, Dinkin had first predicted that the assassination would take place on November 28, 1963, but later reportedly changed the date to November 22, 1963.

According to Colonel Adams, Captain Cowen reported the above conversation to officials of the 766th Army Intelligence Corps Detachment at Metz. A short time later, Captain Cowen also related his conversation to a girl friend named Beth Cox. ... Colonel Adams stated that Eugene B. Dinkin was the subject of a closed investigation by the Office of the Assistant Chief of Staff, G-2, United States Army Communications Zone, Europe. [Lisa's note: I've also read allegations that he was NSA, detailed to Army in Europe.] He advised further that according to local Army records at Metz, France, on February 18, 1964, PFC Eugene B. Dinkin, RA 16710292, was reassigned to Walter Reed Hospital, Washington D.C., as a patient on December 3, 1963 and was ordered to proceed to that destination on or about December 4, 1963. [skipping typical diagnosis that the guy was schizophrenic, pyschotic, history of depression, delusions of persecution - the typical stuff when someone badly wants to discredit everything you say.]

On April 1, 1964, Mr. Eugen B. Dinkin, ... advised Agents of the Federal Bureau of Investigation that he had been recently discharged from the United States Army after having been in detention for four months while undergoing psychiatric tests. Dinkin advised that while stationed in Europe with the United States Army in 1963, he had begun a review of several newspapers including the "Stars and Stripes" as an exercise in "pyschological sets". He explained that he had taken courses in psychology at college and was extremely interested in this subject matter. He advised that "psychological sets" was a term referring to a series of events, articles, et cetera which, when coupled together, set up or induce a certain frame of mind on the part of a person being exposed to this series.

He stated that this method of implanting an idea was much in use by the "Madison Avenue" advertising people who attempted to influence one who was exposed to these "psychological sets" to "buy" the product being advertised, whether this product was physical or an idea. [Subliminal seduction is another term for it. Such was in use here in early TV, then banned. But who checks, right?] Dinkin stated that while so reviewing the newspapers for "psychological sets", he discovered that "Stars and Stripes", as well as certain unidentified Hearst newspapers, were carrying a series of "psychological sets" which he believed were deliberately maneuvered to set up a subconscious belief on the part of one reading these papers to the effect that President John F. Kennedy was "soft on communism" or "perhaps a communist sympathizer". [Contrast that with today's line that he was a hardline Cold Warrior, ala Chris Matthews et al.]

Further study of these newspapers and the "psychological sets" contained therein made it evident to Mr. Dinkin that a conspiracy was in the making by the "military" of the United Stated, perhaps combined with an "ultra-right economic group", to make the people of the United States believe that President Kennedy was, in fact, a communist sympathizer and further, that this same group planned to assassinate the President and thus was preparing these "pyschological sets" to pave the way for this assassination to the point where the average citizen might well feel that "President Kennedy was sympathetic to communism and should have been killed."

In addition, Dinkin believed the "pyschological sets" were adjusted to present a subliminal predisposition to the effect that a "communist" would assassinate President Kennedy. Dinkin advised that he discussed his theories with certain individuals stationed with him in the Army, but had declined to furnish this information to persons of authority in the United States Army since he believed that the plot against President Kennedy was being set in motion by high ranking members of the military. He said that in October, 1963, his research into the "pyschological sets" appearing in "Stars and Stripes" had led him to the conclusion that the assassination of President Kennedy would occur on or about November 28, 1963.

He stated that his research had not, in fact, reflected a certain date, but that he believed the assassination would take place on or about a religious or semi-religious occasion which he felt would be picked by the group behind this plot in order that the murder itself would become even more reprehensible to the average citizen because of the religious connotations. Since he believed that the plot consisted in part of throwing blame for the assassination onto "radical left-wing" or "communist" suspects, he stated that the religious tie-in would lead the average citizen to accept more readily the theory that a "communist" committed the crime since "they were an aetheist group anyway." Dinkin advised that he had been in trouble with the officers of his military group, the 599th Ordnance Group stationed in Germany, due to his refusal to purchase United States savings bonds.

He stated that he was against the enforced purchase of these bonds because of his political convictions which made him believe that the United States should not spend 52 per cent of its income for materials of war, part of which would be financed by any enforced purchases made by him. He stated that he had been outspoken in his views concerning these bond purchases, and that he and others who felt that the compulsory purchase of bonds was an infringement on their civil rights, had been denied "passes" as a result of their stand. [He sounds totally sane to me!!]

As a result of his opposition to the bond purchases, according to Dinkin, he was removed from his position in the code section and transferred to an Army Depot at Metz, France. On October 25, 1963, Dinkin went to the United States Embassy at Luxembourg where, he stated, he attempted for several hours to see a Mr. Cunningham, the Charge d'Affaires at the Embassy. He stated that he sent word to Mr. Cunningham by phone. He said that Cunningham refused to see him in person or to review the newspapers and research papers which Dinkin said were evidence proving his theory of the impending assassination. Dinkin advised that he spent approximately two hours with the United States Marine Corps guard at the Luxembourg Embassy and had generally set forth his theories to this individual, whose name he did not know.

Following this incident, Dinkin was notified by his superiors that he was to undergo psychiatric evaluation on November 5, 1963. Due to this pending development, Dinkin said he went absent without leave to Geneva, Switzerland where he attempted to present his theory to the editor of the "Geneva Diplomat", a newspaper published in Geneva, Switzerland. In addition to this editor, Dinkin spoke to a Mr. Dewhirst, a "Newsweek" reporter based at Geneva. Dewhirst would not listen to Dinkin's theories.

While in Switzerland, Dinking attempted to contact officials of "Time-Life" publication and succeeded in speaking to the secretary, name unknown, of this organization in Zurich. According to Dinkin, all of his efforts in Luxembourg and Switzerland were made to present to appropriate officials his warning of the impending assassintion of President Kennedy. He stated that he did not attempt to see these people in connection with his personal dissatisfaction with the program of the United States Army as regards to bond purchases. When he was unable to accomplish his purpose in Switzerland, Dinkin advised that he then returned to Germany where he gave himself up to the custody of the military authorities. Dinkin advised that he first became aware of this "plot" to assassinated President Kennedy in September, 1963.

At first, he did not have enough facts, as taken from the newspapers, to support his theory, but as of October 16, 1963, he felt that his research into the "psychological sets" had substantiated his theory. As of October 16, 1963, he wrote a registered letter to Attorney General Robert F. Kennedy [let's get the review board to look for THAT] in which letter he set forth his theory that President Kennedy would be assassinated, adding that he believed that this assassination would occur on or about November 28, 1963. He stated that he signed this letter with his own name and requested that he be interviewed by a representative of the Justice Department. He said that on the envelope, he placed the return address name of PFC Deniis De Witt, an Army friend. He said he did this to preclude anyone from intercepting this letter since he felt that Army authorities might well be censoring his mail [again, sounds very logical, very sane.] He stated that he never received any answer to this letter, nor was he ever contacted by any representative of the Justice Deparetment prior to this interview with Agents of the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

Dinkin advised that the following individuals would have knowledge of his theory and predictions, having been informed of these predictions by Dinkin prior to November 22, 1963:
PFC Dennis De Witt
United States ARmy
...
PFC Larry Pullen
United States Army Headquarters Company
...
Seargeant Walter Reynolds
Headquarters Company, WSAGD
...
Dr. Afar (phonetic), a civilian psychology teacher employed by the
United States Army at Metz, France;
R. THomas
...Switzerland. Thomas is an Indian student attending the University at
Fribourg with whom Dinkins discussed his theories immediately prior to
his return from Switzerland to France.

Dinkin advised that on his return to the custody of the United States
Army in November 1963, he was held in detention. While in detention, he
stated he was contacted by a white male who identified himself verbally
as a representative of the Defense Department. This individual asked
Dinkin for the location of the newspapers which Dinkin had compiled as
proof of the theory of the assassination of President Kennedy. This
individual stated that he desired to obtain these proofs and would
furnish Dinkin a receipt for the papers. Dinkin advised that he
instructed this individual as to where the papers were located at the
base, at which point this man left. Dinkin advised that on his release
from detention, he discovered that all of his papers and notes were
missing and presumed that the individual mentioned above had taken them.
He never received any receipt for his papers.

Mr. Dinkin advised that he had undergone numerous psychiatric tests at
Walter Reed Army Hospital in Washington, D.C. He stated that he was aware
that the Army psychiatrist had declared him to be "psychotic" and a
"paranotic". He said that several of the tests given him were familiar to
him from his studies in psychology at the University of Chicago. Because
of his familiarity with these tests, and his background knowledge as to
what the test answers should be, he believed it impossible that the
results of these tests could have shown him to be "psychotic" and
"paranotic". He stated that if he had desired, he could have "faked" the
answer to prove he was sane even if he were, in fact, mentally disturbed.

Mr. Dinkin stated he believed that the psychiatric evaluation given him
by the Army psychiatrist was, in fact, an attempt on their part to cover
up the military plot which he had attempted to expose.
Dinkin advised that during his detention at Walter Reed Army Hospital,
arrangements had been made through his family for him to be given a
psychiatric test by a private psychiatrist chosen by his family.

He stated when these arrangements were finally made, he had declined the
services of this private physician. Dinkin explained that he had reached
a point where his only desire was to be released from custody and
discharged from the Army. He sated that in order to do this, he had felt
it necessary to "go along" with the examining Army psychiatrist and
pretend that he had, in fact, been suffering from delusions but was now
cured. He was afraid that should an outside psychiatrist examine him and
be told by Dinkin the facts as set forth herein, that this psychiatrist
would probably believe Dinkin to be mentally disturbed, and this would
result in further detention for Dinkin.

Mr. Dinkin stated that he was well aware that his theory and the facts surrounding his attempts to
bring this theory to the proper authorities was extremely "wild" and could be construed by a person untrained in psychology to be "crazy". Despite this, Mr. Dinkin advised he was still of the belief that there
had been, in fact, a plot perpetrated by a "military group" in the United States and aided and abetted by newspaper personnel working with this military group, which plot had to do with the assassination of President John F. Kennedy.

END QUOTE, END DOCUMENT.

Dinkins story, which we've probably all seen before - but I had forgotten that last piece.

http://pages.prodigy...ede/index4.html


QUOTE
Russell presented the story of Private Eugene B. Dinkin, who had been trained as a army cryptographic code operator, which in effect made him a small part of the National Security Agency. In early 1962, he had been assigned to the 529th Ordnance Company in France, where he was awarded the requisite security clearances. When Dinkin became upset during his duties, he was given a psychiatric evaluation, and his security clearance was removed. In late October of 1963, Dinkin mailed a letter to Attorney General Robert Kennedy, warning him that an attempt would be made to kill President Kennedy during the latter part of November. In the letter he revealed, that blame would be cast on a Communist, while he claimed that the conspiracy involved elements of the military, especially far right elements of the same. An FBI report of April 3, 1964 acknowledged Dinkin's warning, but made no mention of attempts made to rectify the situation. Hearing via the grape vine that he was about to be locked up as a psychotic, Private Dinkin went AWOL and tried to warn media in Switzerland and Germany without success. He also made an attempt to warn the U.S. Embassy in Bonn but was advised to return to his place of military assignment. Defeated, he returned, and was immediately "hospitalized" at Landstuhl General Hospital in a closed psychiatric ward until Kennedy had been killed, whereupon he was flown to Walter Reed Hospital in Washington D.C. There he was given therapy to help him deal with his unfortunate condition of "schizo-assassination prognostication syndrome," a decease [sic] one would normally associate only with the former Soviet Union. He was made to understand, that if his condition did not improve, he would undergo electric shock treatment, whereupon his condition dramatically "improved." He was released from Walter Reed Hospital and the U.S. Army on a medical discharge. During the trial of Clay Shaw in New Orleans, Garrison found out that Dinkin's duty had been to decipher telegraphic traffic originating with the French OAS, which was extremely close to factions of the CIA at the time. One surmises, that Dinkin caught his unfortunate decease while dealing with communications between the two venerable organizations.

Dinkin advised that during his detention at Walter Reed Army Hospital,
arrangements had been made through his family for him to be given a
psychiatric test by a private psychiatrist chosen by his family.

He stated when these arrangements were finally made, he had declined the
services of this private physician. Dinkin explained that he had reached
a point where his only desire was to be released from custody and
discharged from the Army. He sated that in order to do this, he had felt
it necessary to "go along" with the examining Army psychiatrist and
pretend that he had, in fact, been suffering from delusions but was now
cured. He was afraid that should an outside psychiatrist examine him and
be told by Dinkin the facts as set forth herein, that this psychiatrist
would probably believe Dinkin to be mentally disturbed, and this would
result in further detention for Dinkin.

Mr. Dinkin stated that he was well aware that his theory and the facts surrounding his attempts to
bring this theory to the proper authorities was extremely "wild" and could be construed by a person untrained in psychology to be "crazy". Despite this, Mr. Dinkin advised he was still of the belief that there
had been, in fact, a plot perpetrated by a "military group" in the United States and aided and abetted by newspaper personnel working with this military group, which plot had to do with the assassination of President John F. Kennedy.

Dinkins story, which we've probably all seen before - but I had forgotten that last piece.

QUOTE
Russell presented the story of Private Eugene B. Dinkin, who had been trained as a army cryptographic code operator, which in effect made him a small part of the National Security Agency. In early 1962, he had been assigned to the 529th Ordnance Company in France, where he was awarded the requisite security clearances. When Dinkin became upset during his duties, he was given a psychiatric evaluation, and his security clearance was removed. In late October of 1963, Dinkin mailed a letter to Attorney General Robert Kennedy, warning him that an attempt would be made to kill President Kennedy during the latter part of November. In the letter he revealed, that blame would be cast on a Communist, while he claimed that the conspiracy involved elements of the military, especially far right elements of the same. An FBI report of April 3, 1964 acknowledged Dinkin's warning, but made no mention of attempts made to rectify the situation. Hearing via the grape vine that he was about to be locked up as a psychotic, Private Dinkin went AWOL and tried to warn media in Switzerland and Germany without success. He also made an attempt to warn the U.S. Embassy in Bonn but was advised to return to his place of military assignment. Defeated, he returned, and was immediately "hospitalized" at Landstuhl General Hospital in a closed psychiatric ward until Kennedy had been killed, whereupon he was flown to Walter Reed Hospital in Washington D.C. There he was given therapy to help him deal with his unfortunate condition of "schizo-assassination prognostication syndrome," a decease [sic] one would normally associate only with the former Soviet Union. He was made to understand, that if his condition did not improve, he would undergo electric shock treatment, whereupon his condition dramatically "improved." He was released from Walter Reed Hospital and the U.S. Army on a medical discharge. During the trial of Clay Shaw in New Orleans, Garrison found out that Dinkin's duty had been to decipher telegraphic traffic originating with the French OAS, which was extremely close to factions of the CIA at the time. One surmises, that Dinkin caught his unfortunate decease while dealing with communications between the two venerable organizations.

I became aware of Pfc. Dinkin due to the efforts of Dick Russell's - The Man Who Knew Too Much when the first edition of the book was released in the early 1990's. The material contained in this thread is amazing and those who have posted it should be commended. On a less than optimistic note, [and I would be extremely pleased if I were wrong.] my suspicion's regarding the letter to then Attorney General Robert F. Kennedy is, that it met the same tragic fate that Nagell's 'certified letter' to J. Edgar Hoover did.

JFK Assassination Enablers?

Guest Column by Hugh Turley

 

This year marks the 50th anniversary of the assassination of President John F. Kennedy, and stories about that fateful day in November 1963 have already started appearing in the American media. It is a popular belief that if there were a conspiracy, someone would come forward and the press would tell us.

 

Then why is there still no news about Pfc. Eugene Dinkin, a cryptographic code operator for the Army? Declassified CIA and FBI documents released in the 1990s reveal a strange tale that raises the question: Could Dinkin have learned the details of an assassination plot from the classified documents he handled, or was he a paranoiac who somehow made a number of amazingly accurate prophecies?

 

On October 16, 1963, when Dinkin was stationed in Metz, France, he wrote a letter to Attorney General Robert F. Kennedy warning that the president would be assassinated on or about November 28 and requesting an interview by the Justice Department. Dinkin sent the letter registered mail, and to prevent it from being intercepted, used the return address of an Army friend, Pfc. Dennis De Witt. He did not receive an answer.

 

Dinkin later changed the predicted assassination date to November 22 and said it would happen in Texas. He believed the military was involved in the plot and that a Communist would be blamed. The day after the murder, the Washington Evening Star reported that the alleged assassin Lee Harvey Oswald was a “pro-Castro Marxist.”

 

On October 25, 1963, Dinkin traveled to the United States Embassy in Luxembourg to apprise a Mr. Cunningham, the Charge d’Affaires, of the plot to assassinate President Kennedy. He was turned away.

 

Dinkin was scheduled for a psychiatric examination on November 4, and fearing confinement as a psychotic, he went absent without leave from his unit. He traveled to Geneva, Switzerland, using a false Army identification and forged travel orders. There, he appeared in the press room of the United Nations office on November 6 and 7 and “told reporters he was being persecuted.” Among those who heard his story were the editor of the Geneva Diplomat and representatives of Newsweek and the Time-Life media group.

 

The AWOL Dinkin was the subject of CIA cables on November 18 and again on November 29, 1963. The latter cable advised the White House, State Department, FBI, and Secret Service of Dinkin’s assassination predictions and of his trip to Switzerland.

 

Upon returning to his unit in Metz, he was arrested by Army intelligence officers and soon transferred to Walter Reed Army hospital in Washington, D.C., where he was treated for “paranoia,” according to an FBI report. Afterwards, he was discharged from the Army.

 

The FBI interviewed him on April 1, 1964. By then, perhaps fearing prosecution for revealing classified material, Dinkin said his theory came from newspaper articles and acknowledged that it “was extremely ‘wild’ and could be construed [as] ‘crazy’.”

 

FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover and CIA Deputy Director Richard Helms informed the Warren Commission about Dinkin’s predictions about the assassination, but his name was never mentioned in the encyclopedic official record.

 

The journalists who heard Dinkin’s story in Switzerland may have had it within their power to prevent the assassination of President Kennedy. By writing nothing about his documented allegations, they failed to exercise that power. In addition, they knew that he had been detained after coming forward—but in the wake of the assassination with the investigation proceeding, they remained silent. How many other cases like Dinkins remain unreported?

 

Pfc. Dinkin miscalculated when he went AWOL to contact journalists whom he mistakenly believed were liberty’s guardians. The Roman poet Juvenal asked, “Quis custodiet ipsos custodes?” (“Who will guard the guards themselves?”) It’s still a good question.

I don't know what happened to Dinkin.

Robert - thanks for bringing this story to the fore again. I think it is really important, especially in light of JFK's own fears that the Joint Chiefs might plot against him.

Robert - thanks for bringing this story to the fore again. I think it is really important, especially in light of JFK's own fears that the Joint Chiefs might plot against him.

 

Paul, it has taken me a long time to put key members of the JCS into the plot to murder John Kennedy. And I really need to learn more deeply about Operation Northwoods and Operation Gladio. The identification of Gen. Ed Lansdale at TSBD on 11/22/63 by Col. Prouty and Gen. Victor Krulak I think is extremely significant. I think it brings in Gen. Curtis LeMay and Gen. Lyman Lemnitzer into the plot.

 

Add to that H.L. Hunt, inner circle LBJ supporter, giving $1 million to Gen. LeMay when he retired and supporting him as Vice President on the American Independent ticket with George Wallace.

 

And based on LBJ saying it was the Texas oil men (the "fat cats") in Dallas and "renegade intelligence bastards" behind the JFK assassination, it adds up - imho - to Lansdale, LeMay, Lemnitzer, & Lyndon all being in the plot to K-I-L-L-L-L John Kennedy.

 

The other data point pushing me in this direction is the probability that the June 8, 1967, Israeli attack on the USS Liberty was almost certainly orchestrated by Lyndon Johnson and a tight clique of Machiavellian military intelligence men who live by the credo as expressed in Operation Northwoods and Operation Gladio.

 

The JFK Assassination itself was the ultimate expression of Operation Northwoods.

Bumping this.  Still wondering if anyone knows what happened to Eugene Dinkin after his psychiatric incarceration and military discharge.

I found the following memo from Richard Helms at http://www.thetruths....co.uk/?p=85017

 

MEMORANDUM FOR: Mr. J. Lee Rankin General Counsel
President;s Commission on the Assassination of President Kennedy

SUBJECT: Allegation of Pfc. Eugene B. DINKIN U.S. Army, Relative to Assassination Plot Against President Kennedy

1. Reference is made to paragraph 2 of your memorandum, dated February 12, 1964 requesting that the Commission be furnished copies of disseminations relative to the assassination of President Kennedy that were sent to the Secret Service.

2. Immediately after the assassination the CIA (deleted_ in Geneva, Switzerland, reported allegations concerning a plot to assassinate President Kennedy that were made by Pfc. Eugene B. DINKIN, U.S. Army, serial number RA-76710292 on 6 and 7 November 1963 in Geneva while absent without leave from his unit in Metz, France. Available details of this charge, together with information on its exploitation by Alex des Fontaines, a Time-Life stringer in Geneva, were disseminated in OUT Teletype message No. 85770, on 29 November 1963. This dissemination was sent to the White House, Department of State, and Federal Bureau of Investigation, with a copy to the Secret Service.

3. Since the (deleted) cooperated with the U.S. Military Attache in assembling information on this affair, and the Military Attache reported through his channels, the Commission man have already received information of Pfc. DINKIN’s allegations.

Because sensitive sources and methods were involved, an appropriate sensitivity indicator has been affixed to this memorandum and its attachment.

(signed) Richard Helms

Richard Helms
Deputy Director for Plans
11 May 1964 3

 

NB -- Name of correspondent,  Alex des Fontaines, a Time-Life stringer, and US Army serial number

 

Also:  "While Dinkin’s name does appear in later documents that can be located online, his whereabouts and disposition remain a mystery, Plumlee says, “The whole Dinkin story has been squashed for years and nobody can find him or his family. That is another interesting thing.”

Just to add a bit......the recently retired John Hurt was in France at the time that Dinkin received his information. It has always interested me that Hurt was in France at the time of Kinkin's attempts to warn RFK! I cannot make any connection to Hurt and the assassin/s other than the fact that Oswald attempted to contact someone who shared a name with retired NSA cryptographer John Hurt but the fact that John Hurt reported directly to John J. McCloy during WWII does intrigue me greatly. Perhaps just another coincidence surrounding this interesting person.
