I’ve read aspects of the Roscoe White story in bits and pieces throughout the years, and never gave it much serious thought. A few nights ago I watched this video “Evidence Of Revision – JFK Assassination Rarities” on YouTube. It put some pieces together in a startling way, and I’m doing some more research into it. I’m curious as to what others her think, and if anyone knows of any further research. The section concerning Roscoe White is between 16:00 and 35:35. I also consulted Livingstone’s “High Treason 2” and the revised version of Marrs’s “Crossfire” for more information. From my research, these seem to be many of the facts: Geneva White – Roscoe’s wife Worked for Jack Ruby Says she confirms existence of Roscoe’s diary Says she overheard Ruby and Roscoe planning to kill JFK Owned an alternate version of the backyard photo of Oswald Ricky White – Roscoe’s son Says Roscoe’s diary existed and contained information about Roscoe’s role in the JFK assassination Says the FBI absconded with the diary Has copies of alleged CIA cables obliquely referring to the assassination Reverend Jack Shaw Says he took deathbed confession from Roscoe Says he audio taped Geneva’s recounting of her experiences Says he also had a CIA affiliation? Other witnesses of unknown name and number Recall seeing Roscoe’s diary Roscoe White Knowledgeable about photography? Was, or was about to become, a police photographer? Joined Dallas PD early October 1963 (a little over a week before Oswald got his job at the TSBD) Former Marine as was Oswald, sailed on the same ship as Oswald going to Japan Marine-era photo of Oswald and a man with bump on right wrist and face that resembles Roscoe White Mysterious death in an explosion, allegedly saw someone leaving the scene just prior Allegedly gave deathbed confession to Rev. Jack Shaw Chin resembles chin on Oswald’s backyard photograph Posture resembles posture on Oswald’s backyard photograph Bump on right wrist resembles bump on Oswald’s right wrist in the backyard photograph - Roscoe’s alleged diary reportedly has a brief description of what he did that day, from Ricky White’s memory. It allegedly indicated that Roscoe shot from the grassy knoll and rode with Tippit to pick up Oswald. Roscoe tried to get Tippit to drive Oswald to Redbird airport. When Tippit balked and suspected Roscoe’s and Oswald’s involvement with the reports coming in about JFK, Roscoe had to kill Tippit. The weird thing is, this seems to explain some things. Acquilla Clemons described seeing two people at the scene of Tippit’s killing (though the physical description of one of them doesn’t seem to match either Oswald or Roscoe.) And, if Roscoe was the shooter on the grassy knoll dressed in a policeman's uniform, then that appears to explain Badgeman. (For the record, I am agnostic on Badgeman's existence.) I believe Tippit had some clothes hanging in the back of his police car, if I recall correctly. Roscoe could have changed out of his policeman's uniform and into street clothes after giving the signal by honking outside Oswald's rooming house. I believe Earlene Roberts said she saw two policemen in the police car honking outside, So, normally I would be able to discount a lot of this. I did discount a lot of it when I heard just bits and pieces. The matching chin doesn’t prove anything, but they do match. The posture doesn’t prove anything, yet it too matches the backyard photograph. The bump on the wrist, however, can’t easily be dismissed. If Roscoe was previously knowledgeable about photography, that also seems quite suspicious. The statements of Rev. Jack Shaw, while not conclusive, are compelling, in my opinion. I'd like to know more about his tapes of Geneva and what became of them. The fact that Geneva worked for Ruby is certainly quite a coincidence and difficult to write off as happenstance. And that Roscoe joined the Dallas police department less than two months before the assassination makes me very suspicious. But the one thing that seems to be the biggest is that the White family owned an alternate pose of the backyard photograph. A pose that was re-created by investigators PRIOR to its official discovery. I don’t know how that ownership of that alternate photo could be anything but damning. You’d have to ignore all of the other “coincidences” and believe that Roscoe was just a random cop that just happened, by another coincidence, to be in a position to steal an important and incriminating piece of evidence in the crime of the century, wouldn’t you?
