Thanks for that one Barry,

Especially the interview with Paul K. Wilkins DPD 1469

There's a lot of good, new information there -

"Signal 19 - Elm & Houston" - "proceeded Code 3 to the location...."

Real cop talk.

Parks his patrol car at SE corner - and takes shotgun off back mount - takes keys - so there should be a photo of this car out front of TSBD.

Up the back steps - TSBD - Sixth Floor -

Enter THE MAZE - he calls it.

Men from many agencies, but the senior DPD officer was only a sergeant?

Most interesting, among the officers were "....a couple of officers from the Game Management Agency."

What's the Game Management Agency, and who are these guys, and what are they doing in THE MAZE?

L.D. Montgomery - W. C. Flowers, R. W. Westphal, O.J. Tarver, all there form line searching for weapon -

Find rifle - upright - call Fritz over - Day, et al.

And immediately identify it as a Manlicher Carcano - because he had just bought six of them from the Titch-Gettinger department store in downtown Dallas for $60 or $10 each.

Roy Truly arrives at the scene all shook up and says that he found the attic door opened and steps down - and they shouldn't have been like that and maybe somebody's up there....

And they leave to investigate - and find the door to the attic had been opened and steps put out - probably just as Baker and Truley had left them a few minutes earlier.

If Truley didn't know that Baker had continued up to the 7th floor, checked the attic and went out on the roof - then where was he when Baker was doing it?

Wilkins and company are crawing through the attic crawspace when they learn via transister am radio that Tippit was shot - (so that provides a time check)

They also hear that there was a submarine sighted off Galviston - news that elevates the sense of national danger.

So I think there's a lot there to digest -

And I wonder if that was Tink Thompson's two man submarine they saw off Galvison or whether it was really the Ruskies?

TEXAS GAME COMMISSION

Who were the agents from the Texas Game Management Agency on the Sixth Floor before the rifle was discovered?

Hi Bernice

Ian is working hard on his next book, on the DPD. Should have lots of fascinating details.

That's good news. I wrote this in 2006:

Ian's book,
No Case to Answer
is really underrated, in my opinion. It is a great read with lots of unique research into the city of Dallas, its law enforcement apparatus, and the characters that were involved in one way or another in events surrounding the President's murder.

If you read the story about the day of Dallas policeman Paul K. Wilkins, he says that he was never officially questioned by any agency - WC, HSCA or ARRB, or by any researcher, except for Ian Griggs.
