Thank you John:

For this further information.....Will you either be adding this to Roger Craigs on line information

page, at the bottom of said page, as you did her first letter, or deleting what you have......?

I wish Deanna well ........and peace of mind.....

The statement :

""Because Jones made money off my Dad""...

Well, Penn would have had something to say...about that I have no doubt......

......it is obvious she has

no knowledge of his circumstances in the self publishing his books..nor the trials

he went through to get his information released....

For further studies, for anyone interested in educating themselves re the information on

Roger Craig.....

Some information....

FYI, below I've posted all(?) of the entries about Roger Craig to be found in, I guess, most places, from Walt Brown's Global Index to the JFK Assassination. Other citations were also found to other people relative to "station wagon," also below).

Some general observations about all of this: first, that there seem to be enough "independent" observations of a station wagon or a car that a man was (or men were) seen getting into almost immediately after the shooting that lends credence to the possibility since if there were shooters in the plaza area - including LHO or not - they had to get away from the area somehow, or else they had to blend into the crowd fairly effectively (Mooney's "plainclothes officers like me" being a case in point). I quote "independent" because you sometimes have to wonder how many people - especially those cited by authors - actually saw something, vice how many "remembered" it later after having read about it elsewhere ... not to mention how many people may have made up the story they told!

If there were time for DCM to have gone into the parking lot and later driven a car out to pick up a man or men depends upon how long after the shooting the cars/men were seen (e.g., where was DCM at the time of the photo of the Rambler wagon at least partially obscured by the bus?). I've never traced his movements, so have no idea.

More to the point is the testimony of James Romack (6H277-84), who came to the WC's attention at about the time James Worrell was leaving (with Robert Jackson, Amos Euins and someone else whose name I've momentarily forgotten) to go to DC to testify. It seems that Romack had been working at a freight terminal behind the TSBD - along with George "Pop" Rackley, Virgie's father (6H273-77)- and had "stationed" himself in a position where he could see the back of the building "at all times." He testified that he was watching the back and side of the building and saw nobody running from it at any time.

A couple of caveats to that testimony, however, are that he did, at one point, move from his "station" to remove the barricade on Houston St to allow Sam Pate to get his KBOX radio car out of the road construction zone back there, that being a point in time where his attention was directed away from the TSBD (Sam parked behind the TSBD, and on alighting did see someone running across Houston St from the direction of the SE corner/east side of the TSBD); and also that he was not asked - nor did he volunteer - anything about any vehicles in the area.

It is noted that Romack's entire testimony was intended - by his own admission - to discredit the "xxxx" that he thought Worrell was, and so focused mainly if not solely upon someone running from the side entrance. Neither his nor Rackley's testimony, to the best of my offhand recollection, had any discussion about other vehicles or persons in the area.

Other citations:

Bernice,

If there were time for DCM to have gone into the parking lot and later driven a car out to pick up a man or men depends upon how long after the shooting the cars/men were seen (e.g., where was DCM at the time of the photo of the Rambler wagon at least partially obscured by the bus?). I've never traced his movements, so have no idea.

Here he can be seen walking west at the time when people were streaming up and across the knoll.

Sorry, don't know the photographer.

To the list for further Roger Craig studies, I would add an FBI document discovered by Chris Courtwright in Archives II about ten years ago, with the ARRB record number 124-10145-10036.

It is dated November 23, 1963, and states in part:

<quote>

Mr. ROY COOPER ... furnished the following information ... He related an incident about a Nash Rambler being seen leaving the building at Elm and Houston on 11/22/63. He was driving his car and following his boss who was driving a Cadillac. They were coming south on Houston and had to wait for the parade and the incident happened shortly after they reached this intersection. COOPER observed a white male somewhere between 20 and 30 years of age wave at a Nash Rambler stationwagon, light colored, as it pulled out and was ready to leave from Elm and Houston. This stationwagon pulled out real fast in front of the Cadillac driven by his boss and his employer had to stop abruptly and nearly hit this Nash Rambler. COOPER could not see who was driving the Nash Rambler and could not furnish any further description of the man who jumped into this car. They drove off at a rather fast rate of speed and went down toward the overpass toward Oak Cliff.

<end quote>

Cooper's boss was Marvin Robinson, who filed a similar FBI report. The Robinson account did not surface until the 1970s, I believe -- I think I first read of it in Henry Hurt's Reasonable Doubt.

Thanks Steve.....

That is a Towner 3 photograph..see it below in full......I have quite a collection of DCMs movements after the assassination.....

He took his own sweet time, it could be said, and slowly walked out of history...

I did not want to touch or correct Duke's post...though I should have added the information but did not.... :hotorwot

;)

I am pleased that you have clarified this for all.....

Thanks....

John Thanks also for adding to the Craig's studies.....

Hi Peter;

I believe the last would be in Wilma Bonds # 8......

I have never found him.. in any photo taken after this...

Perhaps someone else has ??

He is seen at the bottom of the steps area, and that is Um seen standing looking

up towards Elm & Houston...I believe

The Hughes film. I'm not 100% sure of the timing of the film sequences after the shooting, but I thought i'd throw these obsevations in to the discussion.Watch the video carefully a few times, and then give your opinions.

or am I way off course? :lol:

Frames from the Hughes Video

Rambler.jpg

Duncan

Duncan :

In the Hughes film, I do not see a rack on the top....do you ?? On second look, perhaps..? white roof...?

In the Hughes frames, thanks...wish I could capture those little devils, from films. :rolleyes:

There were two men in seemingly similar light jackets, with a cap, I do believe, one seemingly somewhat shorter and younger

perhaps than DCM......he took off first and is seen running, below, in front of DCM, going up the embankment..on the left, in both...

as DCM appears to ramble along, taking his time..I think the first one running is perhaps whom you have captured...though I do not

see a white cap...??

I do think it may very well be, Roger Craig crossing over to the North side.. ? He is seen in Willis and id by Gary Shaw, shown below, running

down towards the underpass area, then he did cross over, to the North side, as seen within your Hughes frame, and also moved then up towards

the first pegola area...and shown within the photos.....

Then he moved eventually back across...to the South side, as he states within his information, and saw the station

wagon, and could not get back across..when he also heard the whistle and saw ?? picked up........??

FWITW..Thanks..

Duncan, if you're referring to the car in the foreground in your frames from the Hughes film, you're mistaken. Rambler station wagons from 1956 thru at least the 1962 model years [with the exception of 1961-up Rambler American subcompacts] had the C-pillar--the pillar behind the rear door--slanted rearward.

B16208.jpg

From a 1959 Rambler sales brochure.

The C-pillar on the car in Hughes photos slants forward. On a Rambler in these years, the rear door had a vent wing behind the window on the rear doors, and the wing was triangular, with the point at the bottom. It was the 1963 year models when the C-pillars changed to the opposite slant, as the one in the photo.

This is the latest email from Michelle Palmer. What do you think I should do?

If you do not delete the references to my name, my writing, and myblog, on both your website and the forum:

http://educationforum.ipbhost.com/index.ph...st&p=147641

I'm contacting an attorney.

This is your only warning.

Sincerely,

Michelle Palmer

My immediate response was to leave the comments on the web page. I don't take kindly to being threatened. However, as several people have pointed out, the woman is clearly disturbed and we should not take advantage of this.

Email from Roger Craig's daughter:

There are a few items in your article about Roger Craig you just might want to correct for the sake of accuracy and truth in reporting. i) His marriage didn't end due to repeated harassment or threats - unless you count his repeated threats to end his own life. ii) The man was disturbed. As his daughter I would place money on the fact that he suffered from either Borderline Personality Disorder or Bi-polar depression. Those last two attempts on his life? The husband of the woman he was fooling around with. Trust me, I met her AND her daughters before the bastard killed himself. The husband met him at the door with that shoulder shot.

Articles like yours only serve to continue the myth. My father was a disturbed man. I'm not disputing that what he thought he saw was something different than what was reported. But let's face it, my dad didn't know a Mauser from a whatever. He was a Wisconsin farmboy who joined the army illegally, and was released from duty because he kept injuring himself - I note you don't mention all the self-inflicted scars from his tour of duty. Furthermore, it is EXACTLY this kind of dramatic license that killed my father. It fed his disease. It fed his paranoia. And in the end, it contributed to his self-destruction. You should be ashamed of yourself for perpetuating this garbage.

I have now removed all references to Craig's daughter on my webpage on Roger Craig. As you can from above, I was only doing what I was asked. You just cannot please some people.

I find it intriguing that the two police officers at the TSBD, who both (initially) claimed that the rifle found there was a Mauser - became insane. A coincidence I'm sure.....

He was a Wisconsin farmboy who joined the army illegally, and was released from duty because he kept injuring himself - I note you don't mention all the self-inflicted scars from his tour of duty. Furthermore, it is EXACTLY this kind of dramatic license that killed my father. It fed his disease. It fed his paranoia. And in the end, it contributed to his self-destruction. You should be ashamed of yourself for perpetuating this garbage.

This is the latest email from Michelle Palmer. What do you think I should do?

If you do not delete the references to my name, my writing, and myblog, on both your website and the forum:

http://educationforum.ipbhost.com/index.ph...st&p=147641

I'm contacting an attorney.

This is your only warning.

Sincerely,

Michelle Palmer

My immediate response was to leave the comments on the web page. I don't take kindly to being threatened. However, as several people have pointed out, the woman is clearly disturbed and we should not take advantage of this.

Email from Roger Craig's daughter:

There are a few items in your article about Roger Craig you just might want to correct for the sake of accuracy and truth in reporting. i) His marriage didn't end due to repeated harassment or threats - unless you count his repeated threats to end his own life. ii) The man was disturbed. As his daughter I would place money on the fact that he suffered from either Borderline Personality Disorder or Bi-polar depression. Those last two attempts on his life? The husband of the woman he was fooling around with. Trust me, I met her AND her daughters before the bastard killed himself. The husband met him at the door with that shoulder shot.

I have now removed all references to Craig's daughter on my webpage on Roger Craig. As you can from above, I was only doing what I was asked. You just cannot please some people.

Jerry,

Your site claims, “He stood by the fact that he talked to somebody that claimed to be a secret service agent behind the fence on the grassy knoll.”

But Craig’s own manuscript says nothing of the sort and instead places the Secret Service agent on the steps of the TSBD:

“I ran to the front of the Texas School Book Depository where I asked for anyone involved in the investigation. There was a man standing on the steps of the Book Depository Building and he turned to me and said, "I'm with the Secret Service." This man was about 40 years old, sandy-haired with a distinct cleft in his chin. He was well-dressed in a gray business suit.”

Why the discrepancy?

Todd
