David,

 

Here's that 5'10" 165 lb Lee Oswald with light brown wavy hair and blue eyes again. (p. 436)

Who is this guy? He pops up everywhere.

Compare that to Oswald's physical description on p. 443. (5'9" 140 lbs)

Steve,

The descriptions are all over the place as usual. 5'7" to 6'0"? Could be anybody.

 

 

 

David,

 

I thought maybe I would start collecting references to him. See if there's any pattern.

Here's what I have so far:

1) CIA cable Lee Henry Oswald is 5'10” weighing 165 lbs, light brown, wavy hair with blue eyes.

October 10, 1963

http://www.maryferrell.org/showDoc.html?docId=110013&relPageId=2

 

2) CIA cable to Dep't of State, FBI and Dep't of Navy

October 1, 1963

https://www.archives.gov/files/research/jfk/releases/157-10014-10242.pdf

p. 436 “Probably identical to Lee Henry Oswald” 5'10”, light brown wavy hair, blue eyes.

 

3) Stringfellow Cable

In this referenced cable, Harvey Lee Oswald was described as 5'10" tall, 165 lbs, with light brown hair and blue eyes.

https://ia601309.us.archive.org/22/items/nsia-ArmyIntelligenceJFK/nsia-ArmyIntelligenceJFK/AI%20JFK%2001.pdf

 

4) The initial description broadcast over the DPD radio was for a suspect 5"10" tall weighing 165 lbs and nobody knows where that description came from.

 

I wonder if the following isn't the original source of so many reports to follow in the coming years:

 

5) Report of John Fain (FBI Dallas) dated July 3, 1961. CE 980 p. 388

1 copy to ONI New Orleans

On April 28, 1960 Mrs. Marguerite Oswald provided the following physical description of Lee Harvey Oswald:

5'10" tall, 165 lbs light brown wavy hair, blue eyes.

Saw today that - The rest of the records that can be released will be released on April 26th, 2018 however with some caveats such as tax return info not being part of it......So we get to see some more on Thursday April 26th if anyone wants to make a note in their diary !

Yes David, some of us will for sure.  Let us see how Trump did against the intel community.

 

He gave in once, now we will see how many RIFs still exist and how many redactions and pages missing there will be.

Seems most of the doc page counts are wrong...

I sorted the index on the largest to smallest based on pages and only 1 out of 10 has the correct count...

There were also quite a few duplicate doc #'s as well...
