If you can, let me know if you run across the name David Burris, David Burros, or Davis Burroughs. Thanks.

Will do. The name doesn't ring a bell with this set of documents, but I ran his name through the Mary Ferrell Foundation search engine. David Burros, or Burroughs allegedly found a bone fragment in Dealey Plaza that he turned over to Seymour Weitzman.

Steve Thomas

Thanks. The ARRB claimed to have found him and that he was a motorcycle cop. The trouble is, he was not a cop and the ARRB got no info from Dallas. If the ARRB did find "Burros/Burroughs", where or where is his interview?? Long story short, Davis Burris remains a witness know only from a previously unpublished photo I found at NARA, and a receipt by Burkley where his mane is likely misspelled (Burros).

John Hunt

PS Burris turned the fragment over to R.L. Studebaker, not Weizmann. The Weitzman fragment was a separate fragment altogether.

It's an interesting question. There is no Burros or Burroughs listed in Batchelor's Exhibit 5002.

I'm assuming you've seen the ARRB Medical Exhibits 237 and 238. The ARRB asked the City of Dallas and Dallas County if they had any information on Burros, Weitzman and the bone fragment. Dallas County wrote Doug Horne back and said, "Gary Mack, Archivist for the Dallas County Historical Foundation (to whom Dallas County turned over all their records) has reviewed all material in their collection and reports that no information is available about Seymour Weitzman, a bone fragment, or David Burros or Burroughs."

The name Burros or Burroughs does not appear in the index of the DPD Archives.

If the ARRB did find "Burros/Burroughs", where or where is his interview?? Long story short, Davis Burris remains a witness know only from a previously unpublished photo I found at NARA, and a receipt by Burkley where his mane is likely misspelled (Burros).

In his WC testimony, Weitzman talks about receiving a bone fragment from someone and turning it over to a Secret Service Agent. He speaks of this prior to his entering the TSBD.

In my essay entitled, Secret Service: On the Knoll and Beyond, in the online seminars on this website, I postulate that Wetzman more than likely encountered on of the bogus Secret Service Agents in and around Dealey Plaza, since the first known SS Agent to enter the Plaza was Forrest Sorrels and Sorrels didn't enter the Plaza until well after the search of the TBD was well under way.

I went through Studebaker's WC testimony, but they didn't ask him about any bone fragments.

John,
Thanks. The ARRB claimed to have found him and that he was a motorcycle cop. The trouble is, he was not a cop and the ARRB got no info from Dallas.

John Hunt

PS Burris turned the fragment over to R.L. Studebaker, not Weizmann. The Weitzman fragment was a separate fragment altogether.

It's an interesting question. There is no Burros or Burroughs listed in Batchelor's Exhibit 5002.

I'm assuming you've seen the ARRB Medical Exhibits 237 and 238. The ARRB asked the City of Dallas and Dallas County if they had any information on Burros, Weitzman and the bone fragment. Dallas County wrote Doug Horne back and said, "Gary Mack, Archivist for the Dallas County Historical Foundation (to whom Dallas County turned over all their records) has reviewed all material in their collection and reports that no information is available about Seymour Weitzman, a bone fragment, or David Burros or Burroughs."

The name Burros or Burroughs does not appear in the index of the DPD Archives.

If the ARRB did find "Burros/Burroughs", where or where is his interview?? Long story short, Davis Burris remains a witness know only from a previously unpublished photo I found at NARA, and a receipt by Burkley where his mane is likely misspelled (Burros).

In his WC testimony, Weitzman talks about receiving a bone fragment from someone and turning it over to a Secret Service Agent. He speaks of this prior to his entering the TSBD.

In my essay entitled, Secret Service: On the Knoll and Beyond, in the online seminars on this website, I postulate that Wetzman more than likely encountered on of the bogus Secret Service Agents in and around Dealey Plaza, since the first known SS Agent to enter the Plaza was Forrest Sorrels and Sorrels didn't enter the Plaza until well after the search of the TBD was well under way.

I went through Studebaker's WC testimony, but they didn't ask him about any bone fragments.

Here is the foot note on the ARRB and Burros from an upcoming essay of mine:

"The ARRB claimed to have determined that “David Burros” was a DPD motorcycle officer and that he turned a skull fragment over to Weitzman [ARRB Final Report, pg. 140]. Yet as far as the City of Dallas was concerned, no one by the name of David Burros had ever worked for the DPD, which is what they twice told the ARRB. Margaret McGee told me in a telephone conversation on September 16, 2002 that she vaguely recalled the ARRB-initiated search for “Burros.” [The ARRB used the Burkley typo version Burros] She also related that her records went back no farther than 1975 and would not have covered the period of the assassination. At my request, she checked her files for a “David Burros or Burris” and reported that no record of could be found. However, she did find a “David Burroughs” who was “hired in 1982.” Obviously, this is not the 1963 “Burros” being sought by the ARRB. Additionally, an employee of the DPD payroll records office checked payroll files at my request. A day later she reported that no payroll records existed for a “David Burros, Burroughs, or Burris” from 1964 going back as far as the records reached, which was the “mid-1920’s.” Intriguingly, according to the information in CE-5002, there was a Burris on the DPD payroll in November 1963. His first name was not David, but Homer, and he worked in CID- Burglary and Theft [19H146]. It is interesting to note that “Dallas motorcycle policeman” “David Burros’ ” supposed historic recollections are not recounted anywhere in the ARRB files. Indeed, no ARRB information about “David Burros” and his story exists outside that single, slim paragraph in the ARRB Final Report."

James,

I seem to remember reading a document, which I can't locate at the moment, that states George Burkley took possession of the so called Burros fragment from Secret Service agent Robert Bouck, which was then handed over to Bethesda Naval Hospital.

James

The ARRB Medical Exhibits 237 and 54 that I cited above have a copy of Burkley's receipt of the fragment from Bouck.
