You know, if this was a crank story, why was it never followed up?

If only to deny it?

Why don't we know about it?

White man, Midtwenties and black curly hair, a match for the friend of James Files. (Files say he was called "the Raven" because of his hair). How did the Ft Worth Police know to arrest this guy in connection to the Tippit killing? 30 miles away from the place where it happened!

What happened to that guy? Was he questioned? Was he released?

David Phillips was from Fort Worth.

This is ancient news, resolved 15+ years ago. The man (or men) referred to is/are named Donald Wayne House and/or Kenneth Glenn Wilson, cousins by marriage, neither of whom were any relation to or had any connections with David Atlee Phillips or any governmental agency other than the highway department in west Texas. See Yours Truly, "The Cowtown Connection," The Third Decade, Volume 9, Issue 5 (July 1993), page 36 to back cover. There's no "Raven" in this story (sorry, Jimmy!), I've met all of the principals.

This would seem to be a totally unrelated case. I can see no mention of Tippit. Or even that this shooting (no indication here if the officer died or survied) was even on the same day. Only that the guy from Fort Worth was arrested on the same day.

................................................................................

...........................

Soon after President Kennedy

was assassinated today in Dallas,

a white man in his mid 20s

was arrested in the Riverside

section of Fort Worth in the

shooting of a Dallas policeman.

The man, wno has black curly

hair and who wore a red

shirt, denied that he was connected

with the assassination of

the President.

His hands were handcuffed

and he was taken to the Fort

Worth City jail.

There may be all kinds of misquotes in play here, but the article clearly states (as your transcription shows) the arrest was in connection to the shooting of a Dallas policeman. There was only one Dallas policeman shot that day, and that was J. D. Tippit.
