Very interesting photos


Recommended Posts

These photos are from the Dallas DA's files that were released a couple of months ago.

These are from Group 73 pdf 3014

In the first photo, notice the police have drawn their guns.

In the second, another man is being forcibly led away.

If the pdf seems to hang up and quit loading, hit your stop button and then hit your reload button.

The next pdf, number 3015 shows the young man in 3014 being led away in handcuffs. There is a note attached that says, "Jail break during Ruby trial." It also says, "Sweatt, Grgory and Harris." This is a very nice picture of Allen Sweatt I believe.

Gary Mack tells me: He made a fake gun by carving a bar of soap and painting it black with shoe polish. The gun can be seen in the hands of a sheriff’s deputy at left. The woman was the guy’s hostage (I think his name was Gregory).

The second picture is likely one of the other prisoners who broke out with him; there were four or five altogether. That stairway leads to the Ruby courtroom.

pdf 3015 shows this young guy being led away by two men and a note attached to this picture identifies the three as Sweatt, Gregory, and Harris.

I was wondering what kind of snubnose revolver the detective was holding.

It looked a lot like Jack Ruby's Cobra.

I believe that John Dillinger broke out of a jail in Indiana using a carved piece of soap and/or wood, to which he applied black shoe polish.

I guess that the perp in the picture didn't like his chances of pointing his soap gun at the uniformed cop who is carrying a Colt Model 1911A1 in 45ACP.

Sidebar to the prison breakout:

One of the escapees was named Randolph Hudnall; he was a soldier based at Fort Hood. He served under Capt. Nonte who was the one supplying weapons to John Thomas Masen, many of which found their way into the hands of local DRE members.

In October of 1963, Hudnall had allegedly robbed a drive-in grocery at 1810 W. Jefferson while on leave in Dallas (the concept of 'going in dirty' has been suggested here). Hudnall was eventually recaptured by the FBI in California.

FWIW.

I have an uncanny feeling I've seen the face before, but can't put a name or general sense to it....anyone else?

The guy on the left, with the mustache, has some resemblance with G. Gordon Liddy. Does anyone have a picture of Liddy

from around 1963 ?

Dave,

The guy on the left with the moustache is Charles Polk Player.

James

Thanks James,

would have been too good to be true anyway.

*****Correct. Dillinger broke out of the Lake County Jail using a piece of wood from a washboard painted with shoe polish. He stole the Sheriffs car to effect his escape. This happened 3 blocks from my childhood home in Crown Point, Indiana. My Great Great Uncle was a jail guard at the time of the escape, and had just gotten off shift, he was riding his horse home at the time the escape transpired! The house he was riding to was left to my father after the uncles passing, and that was the home I grew up in. For what it is worth.
