Scentor?

Last night I was reading the December 6, 1963 issue of Life Magazine. In the article it says that early rumors about the assassination centered on a mysterious Cuban named Scentor.

I've never heard this name. Has anyone here ever come across this name before?

I find two references to "Scentor" on the Mary Ferrell site:

One is a letter from a schoolboy to the FBI asking why some things were discounted in the FBI's search, such as the Cuban Scentor.

(FBI WC Liason File, Section 26 p. 127)

The other is a German newspaper article which mentions Scentor

(FBI JFK Assassination File, Section 53 p. 98

Anybody here read German?

Hi Steve,

Too lazy to translate the whole thing. Basically it says Buchanan believes there was a conspiracy and tha the true events have been kept hidden from the general public by the officials in charge.

It mentions that as a potential accomplice the name "Scentor" has been mentioned (doesn't indicate by whom, could be Buchanan though), and that Scentor is a secretive, right-wing millionaire Cuban with ties to both Oswald and Ruby.
