    At some point Marina pointed to a blanket on the garage floor, correct? 

    Mr. RANKIN. Was there anything else close to the rifle that you recall?
    Mrs. OSWALD. Next to it there were some next to the rifle there were some suitcases and Ruth had some paper barrels in the garage where the kids used to play.

    Either there was never a rifle, or Marina was a thoughtless mother that did not care if there was a rifle on the ground near where her child, and Ruth's children played. 

    BTW, try wrapping a small blanket around a rifle and see what it feels like when carried. It kinda feels like a rifle wrapped in a blanket.

    If false, this is the craziest misreporting on the case I've seen.

    The crazy thing is the specific location of the agent. There's always been a mystery about why it took so long for the 6th floor sniper window to be discovered even though ground level witnesses pointed it out. Removing a body would certainly delay things. Or maybe Oliver was just a Nutty Professor.

    The corner of Zangs Blvd. and N.Beckley had a stoplight.

    Have you ever pulled up behind someone and the light turned green and they didn't start up right away and pull through the intersection and you tapped your horn a couple of times to let them know that the light had turned green and they could move on out?

    I'm not so sure that isn't what was going on at Zangs and Beckley.

    That scenario, if just a co-incidence, would have been a great news story that weekend;

    "Cops toot horn outside Oswald residence as he fetched his pistol"

  4. Hudson described one of them;

    Mr. HUDSON - Well there was a young fellow, oh, I would judge his age about in his late twenties. He said he had been looking for a place to park and he walked up there and he said he finally just taken a place over there in one of them parking lots, and he come on down there and said he worked over there on Industrial and me and him both just sat there first on those steps.

    Paul Landis (Secret Service) possibly described the other;

    The only person I recall seeing clearly was a Negro male in light green slacks and a beige colored shirt running from my left to right, up the slope, across a grassy section, along a sidewalk, towards some steps and what appeared to be a low stone wall . He was bent over while running and I started to point towards him

    Your contention here is that the Backyard Photos were made or altered during the weekend of the assassination.  And, that the broad chinned Oswald in the film you show provided the basis for the BYPs.  

    If I am remembering correctly someone, I believe Chris Bristow, figured out the time of the photos by measuring the angles of the shadows in the photos.  His conclusion was that the photos were taken near the time of an equinox.  He couldn't figure which one, the Vernal Equinox or the Autumnal Equinox, since they would provide essentially the same light and shadows.  That being the case the BYPs were made at least two months before the weekend of the assassination.


    That is absolutely NOT my contention. I am saying the backyard photos existed before Oswald was arrested. My contention is that Oswald may be correct when he claimed that someone captured his image "in the hall" at the DPD and superimposed his face/head onto the already existing backyard photos.

    I believe it is the same film.  Just a different area.  And, it's not compression issues.  It is clearly frame editing with black ink.

    I was referring to issues in relation to uploading to an internet platform. Below is the same scene on different uploads. On the left we see more overall definition which would be closer to the original news reel footage. On the right we see loss of overall definition due to pixel/compression/sharpness issues. Some people alter the overall original footage to reflect what they believe to better quality, then they upload. That's the result on the right.

    I said, "The police," meaning that if the police got that, they would use that against my son,

    I'm assuming you are saying this other "backyard photo" was eventually burned because it could be used against Oswald.

    That makes perfect sense if not for the two other backyard photos left in the Oswald family photo album for the police to find. I also don't recall Marina saying she took four photos.
