I was arrested in Dallas, Texas on 12/4/67 with arms, ammunition


Recommended Posts

I have decided that, after encountering something of a dead end on ascertaining this person's identity to see

if anyone else knows who this person was.

Dallas Officers Seize Weapons, Nazi Material;

December 4, 1967

Dallas county sheriff’s deputies confiscated half a dozen rifles,

five pistols, Nazi literature, racist posters and thousands of

rounds of ammunition early Sunday from the home of a

32-year old Dallas man who was being held on

investigation of theft of rifles, pistols and ammunition.

The man who resided in the 600 block of Melba was arrested

on a peace bond filed Saturday night in Justice of the Peace

W. E. Richburg’s court.

The bond, filed by the man’s common-law wife alleges he was

drunk and beat her.

Making the arrest at 1 a.m. were Tom Barker and A. D. McCurley.

The deputies said they obtained a search warrant from Judge Richburg.

The rifles, ammunition and literature were found

in several closets and a dresser drawer.

Among the ammunition were two sealed containers each holding

600 caliber-30 M-1 cartridges which Sheriff Bill Decker claimed is government

ammunition.

The man denied the ammunition and rifles were stolen.

The Nazi literature included “The Stormtrooper,” official news magazine

of the American Nazi Party and racist party stickers, a publication called

“White Power,” printed by the National Socialist White People’s Party

also was found.

Deputies said the man told them he was a member of the American Nazi party.

Six hand-painted posters also were found at the house. Captions printed on

them were anti-Jewish and anti-Negro with a swastika and skull and crossbones.

The man was alone at his house at the time of his arrest.

His wife, whom Judge Richburg said had lived with the man four years ago,

had gone to a relative’s home.

A hearing on the peace bond was scheduled for 10 a.m. Tuesday in Judge

Richburg’s court

Robert, there is nothing more. News wire versions of the December 4th reporting appear in print in other areas of the country as late as on December 11th, but there is nothing after that. That 32 year old man stays "unidentified".

Some suggestions are a Lexisnexis search, pricey if you don't know someone who subcribes.:

Or, old local court and sheriff dept. arrest records, if they are even available.

After spending the time on it that I did, I'll be very surprised if anyone comes up with the name you are looking for.

I really appreciate your help, while I am still working on the name of the person, I have discovered one of the possible reasons why he may have "remained unidentified."

Although I really dislike Hugh Aynesworth, mainly because he did so much to help incriminate Oswald, there is one article he did write, that is worth reading, as follows.

BTW I have come up with an interesting name, who connects not only to the Kennedy Assassination in 1963, but was allegedly arrested circa 1968 for very similar

activities to the un-named person cited in my original post.

His name was John King Jr.

According to my information, to be posted when I have more time, he was arrested in February of 1968.

I also find it odd that in the Thresher thread Bray cites the same last name

King as the person being behind the Kennedy Assassination, although personally I was not impressed too much by Bray's name list

I would warn there are a lot of people

named John King...

Example

J.C. King.......military

Another King bought either Oswald's pistol, the Mannlicher Carcano or both, from Marina Oswald...

The Strangest Story I Ever Covered - Hugh Aynesworth

The telephone interrupted my reverie. It was the fall of 1971, and I had just returned to Houston from New York City, where I had paid my yearly dues by working as a Newsweek writer for nearly a month.

I was the bureau chief in Houston for Newsweek, but once a year the editors decreed that every bureau person should come "home" to see how the other half lived. I had vowed that I would take it easy for a couple of weeks.

A single phone call changed all that.

It was from George Carter, a veteran Dallas Times Herald police reporter. He got straight to the point: "What would you say if I told you that John McKee was a criminal?" I wasn't sure I had heard Carter correctly-McKee was president of the Greater Dallas Crime Commission.

I had. A private detective had compiled a dossier on McKee, Carter said, and had found that he probably wasn't John McKee at all, but a Navy deserter and a thief named James Kell Zullinger.

I was incredulous. McKee was the strongest law-and-order voice that Dallas had ever known. So why wasn't the Times Herald using the story?

"They know all I know," Carter said, "but they won't touch it. Too hot, I guess."

I asked Carter why he was calling me.

"You're outside the local press, and maybe you can do something," he said.

The next day I was in Dallas, going over the investigator's report and visiting with Carter investigators in both the Dallas Police Department and the Dallas County district attorney's office. I met with Searcy L. Johnson, a well-known Dallas civil lawyer, who had initiated the private investigation and who tied together several loose ends.

It was an interesting situation: Here was a dynamo of a man - a man who for more than 20 years had been involved in the highest echelons of Dallas' civic activities. McKee had carved out a rather enviable niche in the local power structure -he was the head of the Greater Dallas Crime Commission; president of Scottish Rite Hospital for Crippled Children for more than 15 years; the number two man in the Texas Scottish Rite hierarchy; and a highly effective governmental-affairs representative for Ford Motor Co. He also was involved in at least 20 other civic and fraternal entities.

I recalled a well-publicized Sertoma Club speech in which he had lambasted the "laxness" of local law enforcement agencies and the district attorney's office and had added, "If I were a criminal, I'd come to Dallas to do my crime. Dallas is indeed the place for a crook to operate."

Carter had indicated that there was more than just the Navy desertion, but he refused to elaborate over the phone. Once I got to Dallas, I began to understand how and why the McKee investigation had begun. There was money missing-some people thought hundreds of thousands of dollars-from the hospital foundation. And there was a blackmail scheme.

Many of the people I originally questioned were extremely reluctant to get involved. One simply told me, "I've spent my life working in the Masonic Order, and if McKee finds out I'm even talking to you, I'll be destroyed."

I began to feel some heat long before I knew where the kitchen was: warnings from McKee associates; anonymous telephone calls telling me that I "could get hurt." I began to realize just how powerful McKee was -and why.

McKee's rise to power was no accident, though even then it seemed implausible. At 5-foot-6, he was not an imposing figure, and his voice was not that of a great orator. He had no family background or financial underpinnings, which, at the time, were almost prerequisites for leadership in the city.

But he had worked hard, donating his time to myriad civic opportunities, and had slowly moved up the ladder of responsibility and respectability until, by the late Fifties, he had "arrived."

My father-in-law was angry when he found out what I was working on. He had been a Mason with McKee for more than half his life. "He's the best man you could ever find," he said.

And so it seemed - from the outside.

From records of the Masonic Lodge, I discovered that McKee had held practically every leadership role possible over the years, including Grand Master of the Grand Lodge of Texas. At the end, McKee was second only to Waco financier Lee Lockwood, sovereign grand inspector general of Texas Scottish Rite. As such, it was McKee who determined which North Texas Masons received the coveted KCCH and 33rd-degree honors, something most Masons seek for a lifetime.

"Take a look at who McKee appointed," a longtime Scottish Rite member said, "and you'll understand why nobody here wants to get involved. You'll never get anywhere with this. He's too insulated."

The list of honored names included congressmen, police chiefs, supreme court justices, newspaper editors and publishers, TV station general managers, bank presidents and other well-known corporate giants.

And McKee had added a subtler power base through his Ford Motor Co. job by funneling considerable money to legislators and others influential enough to affect legislation concerning the automobile business.

"You'd be surprised to know who all I've dealt with," McKee told me later. "Then you'd really have a big story!"

When I first told my Newsweek editors that 1 thought one of Dallas' most important leaders might be a Navy deserter, they weren't that interested. But when I began to uncover threads pointing toward embezzlement, they got more interested. One of the first questions I was asked was: "Why did they suspect him in the first place?"

That's one of the first questions I had asked.

I was told to talk to the Rev. Guy Usher. Had it not been for Usher, McKee might never have been exposed - and later convicted -of embezzlement, though Usher, an Episcopal priest, would just as soon not have been involved.

During the late Sixties, Usher (now the pastor at St. Thomas the Apostle Episcopal Church) was chaplain of Scottish Rite and a close McKee confidant. McKee, who wasn't an Episcopalian, had even attended Usher's church; and Usher had tried futilely for years to "save" him. Still, the two were extremely close.

In fact, when McKee developed peritonitis after major surgery in 1969, Usher had spent hours at his side, often holding his hands and praying as McKee slipped in and out of consciousness. Some doctors had thought McKee might not make it. Apparently, he had known it was touch-and-go.

Every hour or so, McKee would awaken, look at Usher and mumble. Often it would be more of a whine or plea. What McKee told Usher that night would eventually change the lives of several people and some high-powered Dallas institutions.

Usher recently said that he still recalls the night explicitly. He said that McKee was "vulgar in his remarks," but claimed that McKee didn't tell him "anything 1 didn't already know. I already knew he was somebody else -had known it for years."

Others who were in contact with Usher, however, claim that McKee told Usher that his real name was Zellinger or Zullinger, that he had fled a psychiatric unit and possible court-martial from the Navy and that he had family in Pennsylvania. Also, it was said McKee would sporadically cry out, "Will God forgive me for murder? Will God forgive me for murder?"

Usher says that McKee told him nothing of importance.

No matter what was said, McKee must have thought that he had said too much. A few days later, after McKee had made a startling recovery, Usher said to him in jest, "John, I could write a book about what you told me that night."

At that point, Usher was banished from McKee's inner sanctum and became as much of an outsider as one could be.

On April 16, 1970, Guy Usher was handed a letter from McKee, written on Scottish Rite stationery, informing him that the Scottish Rite Executive Committee (McKee was chairman) had obtained "written and oral statements" claiming that "over a period of years you [usher] have had abnormal relations with members of both sexes."

Usher was told that if he wanted to contradict the evidence and statements, he should appear five days later at the offices of M.R. Irion. Irion was McKee's lawyer.

Usher says that he was shocked, but he appeared - with his lawyer. McKee and Irion wouldn't let Usher's lawyer inside the meeting, so Usher turned and left. He never saw McKee again.

But that was only the beginning.

McKee did nothing with whatever "evidence" he had accumulated; instead, he set out to destroy Usher in a manner that didn't allow Usher much of a chance to fight back. McKee and several of his friends told church members that Usher was a sexual deviate. His bishop was notified, and Usher was told that if he signed a statement admitting the "crimes," he would be allowed to resign from Scottish Rite and leave town.

"They even had other out-of-town dioceses offer me positions," Usher says. He says he took a lot of "pressure" from the church, but finally told the bishop that if it didn't stop, he would start filing lawsuits. "That put an end to that," Usher says.

Then Usher went through a period in which anonymous callers would phone him at 2 or 3 o'clock in the morning and threaten him. "Yes, I was afraid for my life for a time there," he says.

"He had seen what McKee had already done to him," one of Usher's Masonic friends says, "and he wasn't sure just how much more might be forthcoming." At that point, Usher went to attorney and fellow Mason Searcy L. Johnson.

Johnson contacted a couple of longtime friends who were former FBI agents, and they started the background investigation of McKee.

Once they had the information in hand, they didn't really know what to do with it. The people involved were all Masons, and no one in the lodge wanted to do anything about it. Usher's bishop wouldn't even return my calls.

While I was struggling to put some pieces together, reporters at both Dallas papers had been tipped that McKee had a former life and that the Horatio Alger story he had fashioned about himself was far more fiction than fact. Editors at both papers took a "so what?" attitude, according to reporters at the time.Masonic leaders, fearful that the true story would adversely affect the Lodge and the hospital, tried to straighten out the financial mess quietly and secretly.

There seemed little I could do-McKee wouldn't talk to me, and the several sources I had developed didn't know for sure what was missing. As I returned to other Newsweek business, information was leaked to me. McKee had even mentioned to friends that "organized crime people" were out to get him. "If they can't kill me, they will try to destroy me," he told one man.

In December of 1971, I was back in Dallas so I called McKee again. This time, he spoke to me. I quickly told him that I had accumulated some "unsettling" allegations concerning him and asked if I could come by for an interview.

"What the hell is Newsweek interested in this for?" he snapped. "I've talked to Joe Dealey at the News and Jim Chambers at the Times Herald, and they aren't interested. They know who's out to destroy me."

"Who?" I asked.

"Organized crime, organized crime," he said. "They know I'm too tough for 'em, and they're trying to take me out. In fact, I just learned that there's a contract out on my life. I just talked to Chief Frank Dyson and ..."

On it went. He tried to make me feel un-American. He refused to meet with me.

I promised I'd be in touch again. I knew I had to pin down the absolute, which meant starting over in Pennsylvania, where supposedly he had relatives. I called on other Newsweek operatives to check facts in Washington, St. Louis and Detroit.

Thanks to the investigator's report, I didn't have any trouble locating McKee's family, but obviously they had been warned not to talk about their brother. A sister in Orrstown, Pennsylvania, who had confirmed that McKee was her brother, James Kell Zullinger, told me point-blank: "I'm not talking about that at all. I think this is all tied up in national security." Another time, a brother locked the door and pulled the shades.

I found out later that McKee had told his family that he had been involved in a sensitive government investigation in which he had saved some highly classified documents from a sunken submarine and was told by "top admirals" in Washington to just "get lost -disappear."

A young policeman in a small Pennsylvania town told me that he didn't know the man I was asking about, but that his grandmother knew everybody in three counties. As it turned out, she did.

She told me the picture of McKee was the same man who had visited his brothers and sisters in Pennsylvania a few months before. He had been declared dead back in the Thirties, she said, after the death of his father and to satisfy probate matters concerning a small piece of land that went to the other brothers and sisters. She said it was "a well-known fact" that James Zullinger had deserted from the Navy and had "stolen some money. Everybody in town knew."

Within a few days, I had acquired Zullinger's Navy record and fingerprints. In 1929, he served on the U.S.S. Camden as a mail clerk and was caught stealing money. Charged with forgery and misappropriation of funds, he was sent to a Norfolk, Virginia, hospital for a routine psychiatric examination pending a general court-martial.

While at the hospital, he had picked a lock and walked away, never to be seen by the Navy again. He came to Dallas in 1930.

I thought it would be easy to match the Navy fingerprints with McKee's and solve this first part of the puzzle. I was wrong.

A former friend of McKee's told me that the key was McKee's twin brother, John Zullinger, who lived in Pittsburgh. I called him. He wasn't home, so I left word that I wanted to talk to him about his twin.

He returned the call.

"Is my brother there?" he asked.

"Who is this? Who is your brother?" I asked.

"This is John Zullinger in Pittsburgh, and my brother is James -but he goes as John McKee. Is he there?"

"Is he supposed to be here?"

"Yes, I was told..."

"Can you describe him... tell me a little more about him?"

"Well, he's 5-foot-6 or 5-foot-7, not very heavy, gray hair. He works for Ford Motor Co., and he's a good friend of the governor and Lyndon Johnson and..."

I told him that his brother was not there, but that I would mention the call to him when I saw him -very soon.

McKee was unavailable for a few days, so I spent the time interviewing others who knew snatches of the situation. Usher, beleaguered by the threats and pressures, didn't want to see me, either. Finally, I called McKee and was surprised when he told me to come to his office. He greeted me with more warmth than I had expected.

"You wanna take a ride in my new Lincoln?" he asked. He said that the crime commission had just awarded him a new car. He then apologized for keeping me waiting.

"I just called Lyndon," he said. "He wants me to handle something for him." He mentioned that he had a "straight line" to the former president -a fact I already knew. "It's hard to hang up when you're talking to the president," he said.

McKee showed me other memorabilia, including a 1966 letter from Johnson in which the president had written that he was sorry he couldn't attend "the dinner," but would send a telegram. The dinner had been at the Baker Hotel's Crystal Ballroom; more than 1,000 leading citizens and politicians had honored McKee as "Texan of the Year" and, led by Lt. Gov. Preston Smith, had given McKee a standing ovation.

As McKee searched for other items to show me, I got straight to the point:

"I know who you are, John, and I know where you came from and what you've done. I've talked to your brothers and sisters."

"No, you've got it all wrong," he said coolly, rustling some papers on his desk. "You've been taken in like all the others. What'd they pay you?"

Before I could answer, he launched into his story, claiming that he was being "shadowed" by Mafia hit men. "I'm too close to a lot of big things," he said. "We've got 'em on the run."

I told him that I was particularly concerned about the financial shortages at the hospital and that I knew he had skimmed more than $40,000 off the top of a stock deal in which he had bought and sold stock for Scottish Rite.

McKee looked stunned. He quickly reached into his right-hand top drawer and pulled out a menacing .38-caliber pistol. "Maybe I should use this," he said, looking me in the eye and pointing it at me.

"Noooooo," I said. "You shouldn't do that."

"Maybe on myself," he said as he turned it toward himself, his eyes blinking. Spit ran out the side of his mouth.

I was stalling for time. I told him how much good he had obviously done in the community and that sometimes people just get in a mess. "Why don't you just admit it and tell your friends you've made a mistake, and ..."

He tossed the gun back in the drawer. "Sheriff [Clarence] Jones gave me that," he said.

When I had first set out to confront McKee, I had figured that it would be a bizarre scene. I had expected the threats of libel, but I had never dreamed I'd be facing the wrong end of a .38. I also had known that whatever he told me then he would probably deny later, so I had hidden a tape recorder on me.

"I've checked on you," he said. "You're an honest reporter, so I'm going to tell you something I've never breathed to another person on earth." I hoped the batteries in my recorder were good.

"There is a period of time," he said, "way back in my early life, when I don't remember hardly anything. In fact, all that comes to me for these several years is my mother's face."

The immediate danger seemed over. Now he was drawing me into his latest conspiracy. We talked about amnesia, his brothers and sisters, his Navy career and whether or not he was Zullinger. I told him that if, indeed, he thought "they" were out to get him, he should let me take his fingerprints. If he wasn't really Zullinger, the whole story would shift.

"If your fingerprints are different from Zullinger's," I told him, "I'll fight just as hard to prove who set you up and why."

"Oh," he said, "the FBI's got my fingerprints, the Dallas police have got 'em - they're all over. They've already checked that out." (In fact, he had refused to have them made.)

McKee began to show me press clippings. I had seen many of them, but I didn't want to jar my newfound "relationship." So 1 stayed as he leafed through a stack of clips -a newspaper article he had written about the extent of prostitution and drug dealing in Dallas high schools; how some judges weren't tough enough on criminals; how the Citizens Charter Association (which, at that time, was a strong oligarchical political organization) wanted him to run for mayor; how a "hit man" was after him; how he had charged that Police Chief Dyson should have had his men arrest "the scum protesters" in Lee Park.

He clearly considered himself the public conscience. If it wasn't the Communist threat, it was the liberal lawyers and courts, the Mafia or just plain "them."

Later, I talked to District Attorney Henry Wade, who had told me weeks earlier that he had heard the rumors about McKee, but had nothing criminal to go on -yet. H.H. "Snooky" Davis, his chief investigator, had been put on the case. Davis had the Navy record, but no fingerprints. With subpoena power and the threat of a grand jury behind his efforts, Davis had made good inroads into the financial dealings. Both Wade and Davis were honest with me about their investigation. They didn't particularly care about the identity problem; they were trying to solve the embezzlement situation.

Assistant Police Chief Paul McCaghren told me that he had heard the "rumors" about McKee, but he hadn't been able to get McKee's prints to see whether they matched the Navy prints. "I don't have 'em now, but I'll have 'em before long," he said.

A week later 1 again contacted McKee, who said I should meet with Irion, his lawyer, if I wanted to talk about his fingerprints. I met with the two of them at Irion's office. At this point, I also had discovered that McKee's son-in-law, Paul Prasifka, had been involved in some mishandling of hospital funds (he was later indicted, pleaded guilty and received a suspended sentence). And McKee, I had learned, had a "woman friend" whose son had been given a $l,000-a-month job at the hospital and severance of more than $2,500 when the board demanded he be replaced.

Never before had I been put through the wringer like I was at Irion's office. I was told that if I did such a story, Newsweek would be slapped with a multimillion-dollar libel suit and that "things could get tough" for me. Irion asked me for the names of my editors and those of the Newsweek lawyers.

"What's so bad about what he's done?" Irion asked. "A lot of people have changed their names. Look at all the good he's done."

I told Irion that I thought that McKee had, indeed, been good for the city, but that taking money from the children's hospital didn't qualify along those lines. I mentioned that money for a new car for McKee's lady friend had come from that source. And, I said, "the way the Rev. Usher case was handled smacks of Nazi Germany."

Irion was livid. He handed me a copy of the Texas libel laws and said that he had no intention of allowing McKee to be fingerprinted.

I left and immediately called the Newsweek editors to tell them that I was forwarding a tape recording that they should keep intact in case of legal action. I was told they supported me totally; they asked if I needed a local lawyer. "Not yet," I said. They also told me that we had to have the prints matched before the story could be used.

A one-time co-worker of McKee's told me that McKee often ate lunch at the Insurance Club in the Statler-Hilton Hotel. I thought that if no one else could get his prints, perhaps I could get a water glass after he'd handled it, then force the issue. I got a guest pass and ate lunch there three times. Once, he didn't show up; another time, I raced to his table after he'd left and grabbed the glass, only to have it taken away from me by a large waiter. Another time, he saw me and left.

McCaghren finally figured out how to get McKee's fingerprints: He went to McKee's office and handed him a piece of paper with a note on it. McKee read it, then McCaghren quickly grabbed it back and returned to City Hall, where it was compared with the Navy deserter's prints. They matched.

On February 11,1982, Wade and Dyson issued a joint press release confirming that McKee was Zullinger.

"Throughout the investigation," the release stated, "Mr. McKee had repeatedly refused to be fingerprinted at the Dallas Police Department. It has become increasingly apparent that bits and pieces of information about the probe were becoming public knowledge [not in any local press] and that many aspects were becoming distorted. The Dallas Police Department and the Dallas district attorney's office feel an obligation to set the record straight. The question of Mr. McKee's identity has been verified. His real name is James Kell Zullinger." The results of the combined investigation, they said, had been presented to the county grand jury that morning, "for whatever action the grand jury may wish to take."

As expected, McKee refused to comment, but his secretary offered a statement for him: "This is ridiculous. I've been in Dallas for 50 years. If the Dallas police want my fingerprints, why don't they get them from the FBI? This is grounds for libel."

Irion said simply, "They've crucified an innocent man, and you're gonna see the biggest libel suit you've ever heard of." Asked when and against whom, Irion said, "I can't tell you now."

The disclosure, now covered with lengthy front-page stories and prime radio and TV spots sent shock waves across the nation. Some Washington and Austin bigwigs who once had praised McKee were now unavailable for comment. McKee wouldn't talk. The Scottish Rite leaders huddled to see how they could cut their losses; the Times Herald published a lead editorial saying that McKee should quit the crime commission post. Jim McGovern of Atlanta, head of the National Association of Citizens' Crime Commissions, quickly suspended the Dallas commission.

Less than a week after Dyson and Wade's public disclosure, McKee was indicted on two counts of embezzlement, which totaled about $6,700. Eleven days later, McKee's son-in-law was indicted for forgery and embezzlement of $27,000. Neither spent a day in jail.

Even with strong evidence, the indictments were hard to come by, says District Judge Richard Mays, then an assistant district attorney: "There was one old man on that grand jury that cried because McKee was his hero. But he did his duty. With tears running down his face, he voted for indictment."

McKee was tried in the summer of 1972 and was convicted of the embezzlement of the $6,700. Other charges were not considered. Judge John Mead assessed him a seven-year probated sentence. McKee was forced to relinquish some bank stocks worth nearly $100,000 that he had bought secretly from Scottish Rite for about $30,000.

KRLD-TV (now KDFW-TV) produced some records that showed that McKee was named as independent executor of several estates left to the Scottish Rite Foundation or to the hospital itself. There have been no public disclosures of how and if these properties were disposed of or where the monies ended up.

At this point, McKee was a ruined man: His wife of 42 years had divorced him, and many of his erstwhile friends now avoided him. For a time, he worked as a cashier at a downtown parking garage. He claimed that he was writing a book that would "blow the lid off this town."

Many men have risen to the heights, only to slip and fall into oblivion. But few ever fall as far and as hard as did McKee. When he died in December of 1981, there wasn't even a funeral.

Few of McKee's friends -or enemies-will comment publicly about him. Some just bow their heads and say, "Forget it." Others say that the hospital had to implement new accounting procedures and that the publicity about McKee did hurt for a while. One man says that McKee was such a "sick" man during his last few years that "he just wasn't himself-no pun intended."

Robert,

I would look at those that were associates of Bob Surrey. Surrey printed most of the ANP's literature during this period. Dallas was the headquarters of the ANP in 1967.

On a side note, I'm still puzzled as to why LHO had Rockwell's and Burros name and addresses in his address book.

Hitler’s Nazi Party was actually the "National Socialist" party, and we all know LHO's proclivity for that stuff, even though it was all part of his haphazard "intelligence" work, like his phony defection to the USSR.

Oswald's entries any relation to the General Walker assassination scare? A second set of targets?

(I make no assumptions about the motive or involvement of Oswald in the Walker shooting or scare job...yet.)

Well, I have been through issues like this before with the proverbial dead end. I have a good idea how to remedy it. Thanks to Tom and David for the suggestions.....

I am not even sure where I obtained it, but I am pretty sure it is a 180- series RIF, from Joe Backes Batch document series.......

At any rate it is what I was referencing earlier, sometimes a dated document can be off....but this is just something that jolted me......

If anyone saw my post on the Thresher thread regarding Bray's account of the assassination, it is kind of odd.

But I am not reading a lot into it......

KING. GEORGE J. JR. CO2-26104 #6419

He was heard in August 1963 discussing the possibility of killing the Pres. He was arrested same month for illegal sale of machine guns.

King is extreme right wing, hates Jews, was arrested by ATF O'Neil for illegal possession of firearms. Emotionally unstable. Arrested 2-29-68 again. This time for CCU, John Bircher, Christian Def. League, Am Nazi Party, Christian Defense League.

There were 9 FBI files pulled on him.

On a side note, I'm still puzzled as to why LHO had Rockwell's and Burros name and addresses in his address book.

Hitler’s Nazi Party was actually the "National Socialist" party, and we all know LHO's proclivity for that stuff, even though it was all part of his haphazard "intelligence" work, like his phony defection to the USSR.

Oswald's entries any relation to the General Walker assassination scare? A second set of targets?

(I make no assumptions about the motive or involvement of Oswald in the Walker shooting or scare job...yet.)

Well, I have been through issues like this before with the proverbial dead end. I have a good idea how to remedy it. Thanks to Tom and David for the suggestions.....

I am not even sure where I obtained it, but I am pretty sure it is a 180- series RIF, from Joe Backes Batch document series.......

At any rate it is what I was referencing earlier, sometimes a dated document can be off....but this is just something that jolted me......

If anyone saw my post on the Thresher thread regarding Bray's account of the assassination, it is kind of odd.

But I am not reading a lot into it......

Interesting, Robert, but your mystery suspect arrested in Dec., 1967 in the 600 block of Melba, was reported to be two years younger than "our" King, George J. JR.

A League of Their Own:

A Look Inside the Christian Defense League

By D. Boylan*

.....The paramilitary side of the CDL/CJCC was the California Rangers, sometimes referred to as the U.S. Rangers. Formed in 1959 by William Gale, it never grew as large as its better-known cousin, the Minutemen. Robert DePugh, founder of the Minutemen, knew William Gale and structured his organization after Gale's Rangers.[20] The purpose of the Rangers was to build an underground network to conduct guerrilla warfare. Gale's recruiting efforts were directed toward former military servicemen. He transferred his American Legion membership to the Signal Hill post where he and George King, Jr., also a member of the CDL, converted the post into a front for the Rangers.[21]

Much like their Minutemen cousins, the CDL believed in hoarding a large supply of arms and weaponry. A police raid on William Garland's house in Cucamonga, California turned up eight machine guns, and one hundred rifles, shotguns and pistols. When they searched his barn they found an ammunition dump for heavy caliber rockets, bombs, and thousands of rounds of ammunition.[22]

The first indication that the Swift/Gale complex was interested in more than preaching religion came from George Harding in April 1963 when he informed the FBI that he was being recruited to become part of an eight man team to assassinate three hundred public officials in high positions of government. According to WCD 39 and WCD 1107 "Harding claimed that the leaders in the group were Dr. Wesley Swift, James Shoup and others.... The second in command was a Colonel William Gale...who was supposed to have been the youngest intelligence officer under MCARTHUR (sic)."

A related incident also occurred that April. Los Angeles physician Dr. Stanley Drennan approached Captain Robert K. Brown, who was also involved in anti-Castro activities during this period, stated that "while at Drennan's home, Drennan stated in general conversation that he could not do it, but what the organization needed was a group of young men to get rid of Kennedy and the Cabinet…Brown stated that he considered the remark crackpot; however …he gained the impression that Drennan had been propositioning him on this matter. Drennan, a member of the National States Rights Party and associate of William Gale." Drennan complained in a letter to Dean Clarence Manion, a prominent member of the John Birch Society, that on June 10, 1963 two Secret Service agents visited two of his friends at 7:30 am to inquire about his "patriotism, integrity, dependability, and emotional and mental stability. These people were twenty miles East of my dwelling while I was only two miles from where the President was riding in an open convertible sitting high on the back of the seat."[23]

The Secret Service and FBI generated another report in August 1963 by the arrest of Gale's associate George King, Jr. King was overheard discussing the possibility of assassinating the president and was later arrested that month for the sale of illegal firearms. A later FBI field report, CO2-26104 #6419, stated "King is extreme right wing, hates Jews, was arrested by ATF O'Neil for illegal possession of firearms. Emotionally unstable. Arrested 2-29-68 again. This time for CCU, John Bircher, Christian Def. League (sic), Am Nazi Party, Christian Defense League."[24]

There was yet another pre-assassination report (November 15, 1963) of a plot to assassinate "the President and other high-level officials" by a "militant group of the National States Rights Party."[25] The FBI dismissed the report because they felt the subject was trying to make a deal because of pending criminal charges. This was not the well-documented November 9, 1963 report of Joseph A. Milteer's accurate prediction that Kennedy would be shot "from an office building with a high powered rifle." [26] Milteer was also a member of the NSRP and ran for governor of Georgia on the Constitution Party ticket the same year that William Gale switched from the Constitution Party to the Republican Party to run for governor of California....

Gracias por favor.

In looking at the article, one of the items that really stood out was that he is identified as a "Dallas man,"

I was sort of surprised mary ferrell's chronologies didn't mention this arrest. Tom, I really appreciate

your help.

David it's funny that Tom posted a reference to your article, I re-read it as soon as I started looking

into this. It is one of the great articles on JFK related matters.

For those who haven't read it.

Thanks Robert. It also can be found here - http://educationforum.ipbhost.com/index.php?showtopic=2363

As I mentioned above, the curious listing of Dan Burros in LHO's address book. Again relying on memory, I believe Oswald has listed Burros New York address and listed the American Nationalist Party. This "party" consisted of 2 people - Burros and John Patler. The same John Patler who later assassinated George Rockwell (ANP). Burros and Patler left the ANP for a period 6 months in 1962-63 after a falling out with Rockwell. Burros and Patler published a small publication called "Kill". Four issues I believe. Burros later became a member of the Minute Men, Klan, NSRP and was associated with Roy Frankhouser. I'm sure Frankhouser will have a few hits in the HSCA database.

So, the question is, how did LHO come across Burros name and address? Was it through his work with Banister? Dallas connections with Surrey/Walker?

more on the incident, surprisingly the Dallas Times Herald

did not mention the persons name either.

I suppose the trail has led to a dead-end; my guess is that

he was either related to someone important in Dallas,

[see related story below]

But my main interest in this person was regarding what he

was doing in 1963.

Officers Uncover Weapons Cache

A 32-year-old Dallas man was in jail after sheriff’s deputies

found a cache of weapons and ammunition in his Oak Cliff

home.

Sheriff Bill Decker said he did not know whether or not

charges would be filed against the man.

Deputies went to the Melba street residence early Sunday

on a peace bond filed by the man’s wife. They used a search

warrant to enter and found five rifles, including three

carbines; five pistols and from 2,000 to 3,000 rounds of

ammunition.

Decker said the man told him that he obtained all the

weapons legally.

The ammunition included two sealed boxes, each

containing 600 rounds of .30-caliber bullets for the

carbines.

The deputies also found a quantity of literature stamped

with the names of the American Nazi Party and the

National Socialist White People’s Party. The literature

included several crudely drawn posters, signs and

cartoons described as anti-Jewish and anti-Negro.

A hearing is set for 10 a.m. Tuesday on the peace bond.

The bond and the search warrant were signed Saturday

night by Justice of the Peace W. E. (Bill) Richburg.

Robert: I guess wife-beating wasn't a big deal, back then.

Six Nazis Arrested for Dallas Actions

by Harry McCormick

Greatly increased activities by Dallas Nazis led six of them into the hands of police

last weekend.

Three were arrested in Oak Cliff as they painted Nazi swastikas on a service station.

An hour later, three more were arrested in University Park while pasting swastikas

on Jewish-owned businesses in the Park Cities.

Officers J. O. Swinney and J. C. Burnett, who arrested the trio in Oak Cliff siezed a large

quanity of Nazi literature in the men’s car.

A 25 year-old man, son of a law-enforcement officer, was charged with displaying advertising

on private property. The other two men 19 and 25 years of age and sons of men active in the

Nazi-Party here, were released after the 25 year-old told officers he had done the pasting

In University Park, Captain Joe B. Churchman told the News

Their ages he said were 37, 33 and 25. They admitted membership as Nazis and said they

posted swastikas on Jewish business houses along Central Expressway.

The Stormtrooper, official magazine of the Nazi’s had sent large numbers of their latest

issue to Dallas people in an effort to increase membership in the Nazi, or

National Socialist Party.

Included in the mailing is “Boat Ticket to Africa,” which the magazine refers to as

“humorous.”

It is actually an attack on the Negro race. The magazine also attacks the Jewish people.

The boat ticket offers a 1-way ticket to Africa, with “bananas and choice-cuts

of missionary” and “unguarded watermelon patch and chicken-coop on deck.”

While George Lincoln Rockwell, American Nazi Party leader in Arlington Va.,

eulogizes Hitler in most of his writings, the Stormtrooper is strangely silent on the Hitler

subject in its efforts to induce new subscribers or members

Rockwell hails Hitler as the greatest man in history.

The magazine also carries picture of American Nazis being arrested (in uniform)

in Washington, Los Angeles and Atlantic City.

In some case the officers are wielding night sticks

There are reports that the Dallas Nazi’s will hold a celebration in Dallas in some secret place the last of this month

honor of Hitler’s birthday in some secret place the last of this month in honor of the date that Adolf Hitler came to

power in Germany on Jan. 31, 1933.

That was one of the most nauseating stories I have ever read

in my life, it has always saddened me how peoples subjected to the most intense

forms of hate, racism and genocide, could still face more of the same decades later.

I wish these people had been forced to watch the Twilight Zone movie segment

about a particular racist, who was given a "walk a mile in my shoes treatment"

See Twilight Zone Movie on youtube.com

Roy Frankhouser

On Feb. 17, 1988, Frankhouser was sentenced to three years in federal prison and fined $50,000 for advising political extremist Lyndon H. LaRouche Jr. to obstruct a federal grand jury probe into an alleged fundraising fraud scheme.

During the trial, Forrest Lee Fick of Stony Creek Mills testified that he and Frankhouser were asked by a member of LaRouche's organization to kill former Secretary of State Henry A. Kissinger during a flight to Europe.

According the newspaper records, Frankhouser was first arrested in 1961 at age 22 for kicking an Atlanta police captain in the shins during a protest.

Contact Dan Kelly: 610-371-5040 or dkelly@readingeagle.com.

A Department of Justce letter dated May 18, 1967 from Philadelphia, stated that “Frankhouser told John Canaris,.......that he had some letters from a person named Payne, concerning the assassination of President John F Kennedy.” Frankhouser said these letters were among the files which he had entrusted to Canaris for safekeeping. according to the source

Dan Burros

Daniel "Dan" Burros (March 5, 1937 – October 31, 1965) was a former member of the American Nazi Party under former Naval commander George Lincoln Rockwell, who founded the ANP in Arlington, Virginia in 1959. After falling out with Rockwell, he became a kleagle, or recruiter, for the United Klans of America Ku Klux Klan organization in New York State.

After a New York Times reporter named McCandlish Phillips revealed that Dan Burros was, in fact, Jewish, a despondent Burros committed suicide, first by shooting himself in the chest and then in the head. At the time, he was listening to music composed by Richard Wagner.[1]

Dan Burros is sometimes cited as an example of a self-hating Jew. He was also influenced by Francis Parker Yockey's Imperium.[2]

Suspicions that Dan Burros was a Jew began during his tenure in the American Nazi Party. He would sometimes bring knish to the American Nazi Party headquarters and make statements such as "Let's eat this good Jew food!" Burros also frequently spent time with Jewish women. When Rockwell discovered that he was a Jew, he still wished to maintain a relationship with him. However, within two hours of seeing this information printed in the New York Times, Burros took his own life in the Nazi compound where he had been staying.[3]

During a press conference after Burros' death, George Lincoln Rockwell railed against Jews, whom he called "... a unique people with a distinct mass of mental disorders" and ascribed Burros' instability and suicide to "this unfortunate Jewish psychosis".[4]

The story of Dan Burros was the origin of Henry Bean's movie, The Believer. It also inspired an episode of the TV series Lou Grant.

I have decided that, after encountering something of a dead end on ascertaining this person's identity to see if anyone else knows who this person was.

Dallas Officers Seize Weapons, Nazi Material;

December 4, 1967

Dallas county sheriff's deputies

rifles, pistols, Nazi literature, racist posters,

thousands of rounds of ammunition

32-year old Dallas man

investigation of theft of rifles, pistols and ammunition.

600 block of Melba

on a peace bond filed Saturday night

Justice of the Peace W. E. Richburg's court.

Making the arrest at 1 a.m. were Tom Barker and A. D. McCurley.

The deputies said they obtained a search warrant from Judge Richburg.

hearing on the peace bond scheduled for 10 a.m. Tuesday

If I find myself with a bit of time the next time I'm in Dallas, I'll see if I can't track some of this information down through the Sheriff's Department and/or County Records. It may also be possible to determine which JP court was Judge Richburg's, and it's possible that the arresting deputies are still around (have you looked into that? I'm imagining so).

A preliminary step that you can take - if you haven't already - is to try to determine some of that information through the County Records Department's general phone number 214-653-7011, which should at least be able to steer you in an appropriate direction and give you some direct-dial numbers.

I'm imagining, perhaps incorrectly, that Dallas County will have the same sort of records available as the Fort Worth Police Department does and did when I looked into the "David Atlee Phillips under arrest in Fort Worth 11/22/63" thing back in '91 or '92, many of them possibly online now. (It never hurts to dress nicely and flash an award-winning smile either!)

December 4 was a Monday, I'm presuming (also possibly erroneously) that the "1 a.m." is that time on the same Monday morning since the article didn't mention a different day, so the Tuesday in question would either be the 5th or the 12th.

What have you done so I don't needlessly duplicate your efforts?

One thing I have discovered regarding this general time frame is that it falls close to the time frame that the CIA wrote a memo

INTERLOCKING RELATIONSHIPS BETWEEN BROWN/SLAFTER AND GARRISON

http://www.maryferrell.org/mffweb/archive/viewer/showDoc.do?docId=105552

The persons “Brown” & Slafter reference Robert Kenneth Brown and Ralph E Slafter.........

I still have a good feeling that I will be able to detertmine who was arrested in Dallas that day, and hope it may provide some insights into if there is

some type of new information pertinent to what this couple [the man arrested and his common law wife] were doing in 1963.

Making the arrest at 1 a.m. were Tom Barker and A. D. McCurley.

The deputies said they obtained a search warrant from Judge Richburg.

hearing on the peace bond scheduled for 10 a.m. Tuesday

If I find myself with a bit of time the next time I'm in Dallas, I'll see if I can't track some of this information down through the Sheriff's Department and/or County Records. It may also be possible to determine which JP court was Judge Richburg's, and it's possible that the arresting deputies are still around (have you looked into that? I'm imagining so).

A preliminary step that you can take - if you haven't already - is to try to determine some of that information through the County Records Department's general phone number 214-653-7011, which should at least be able to steer you in an appropriate direction and give you some direct-dial numbers.

I'm imagining, perhaps incorrectly, that Dallas County will have the same sort of records available as the Fort Worth Police Department does and did when I looked into the "David Atlee Phillips under arrest in Fort Worth 11/22/63" thing back in '91 or '92, many of them possibly online now. (It never hurts to dress nicely and flash an award-winning smile either!)

December 4 was a Monday, I'm presuming (also possibly erroneously) that the "1 a.m." is that time on the same Monday morning since the article didn't mention a different day, so the Tuesday in question would either be the 5th or the 12th.

What have you done so I don't needlessly duplicate your efforts?

One thing I have discovered regarding this general time frame is that it falls close to the time frame that the CIA wrote a memo

entitled

1993.07.27.17:11:05:680570

INTERLOCKING RELATIONSHIPS BETWEEN BROWN/SLAFTER AND GARRISON

http://www.maryferre...do?docId=105552

The persons "Brown" & Slafter reference Robert Kenneth Brown and Ralph E Slafter.........

I still have a good feeling that I will be able to determine who was arrested in Dallas that day, and hope it may provide some insights into if there is

some type of new information pertinent to what this couple [the man arrested and his common law wife] were doing in 1963.

I have never given up on ID'ing this guy, who is nameless despite the fact that the newss story garnered more than just local coverage.......

This morning I discovered a document from the MLK Assassination Files, that dovetales with the initial post, again names are redacted but what seems beyond question is the following document provides a Dallas/Chicago linkage with the unnamed Chicago individual, also in the possession of Nazi Literature and other Nazi material, in Dallas the "Target Lounge" is mentioned, it is stated in the document that this bar is on the outskirts of Dallas, in reality it was on Ervay Street. My main interest in this person who was arrested on December 4, 1967 was mainly due to the fact that there was so much secrecy about who he was, and the fact that he wasn't charged with anything,

If the weapons he possessed were not illegally obtained, it would seem he never would have been arrested in the first place,

despite Decker's assertions that "he told me they were not illegally obtained,"; which in the context of the circumstances

a true investigator would consider such commentary about as valuable as a warm bucket of spit.

As the posts after my first one reveal that at least one of these kids who were doing the swastika painting was the son of a Dallas law enforcement officer,; circa 1965.

I thought initially, that it was possible that might be all there was to it, saving someone some embarrassment in the

Dallas Police Department, now I am of the view there is a lot more to this story.....

King Assassination Documents - FBI Central Headquarters File, Section 64

Memo from Rosen to DeLoach, 3 Jul 1968

The files of the FBI, Chicago revealed that [redacted] a white male 5'11",

145 pounds, black hair, blue eyes

later.....

Man Aged 45 Shot to Death on South Ervay

DMN 8-13-1969

A 45 year-old man identified by police as Eugene Odom

of 865 Port Noma Lane was shot to death Tuesday in an

exchange of gunfire with another man in the Target Lounge

2009 S. Ervay. Odom was found outside the lounge, a bullet

through his heart police said.

The other man told police he ducked a shotgun blast fired by

Odom and returned fire with a .38 caliber pistol. He said

Odom came in with a sawed-off shotgun and began

firing after another man kicked in the front door.

Two persons were nicked slightly by pellets and the interior of

the lounge was riddled by the blast.

Detective Sergeant J. H. Lauderdale said he was told the shooting

apparently was over a woman acquaintance.

The initial 12/4/67 DMN story reported that the unidentified Dallas man

had a peace bond filed against him by his wife.......

Considering that Martin Luther King, Jr., was assassinated

in Memphis on April 4, 1968, the Chicago man as well

as the unknown Dallas man seem to be birds of a feather.....

In both of these cases the identity of the person is protected

I have to wonder if these two persons may have been

acquainted with each other, and if so, the ramifications

could lead to something even more extraordinary.

The Target Lounge is unknown to me, the first Dallas area

news story [to the best of my knowledge] is the one I posted

which, as it says is in 1969.

I am currently running down some additional information

on this nightspot, and hope it leads somewhere......

In his book "This Time The World," copyrighted in 1961 George Lincoln Rockwell

identified himself as, Commander, American Nazi Party of the World Union of Free

Enterprise National Socialists, (ANP-WUFENS) Arlington, Virginia.

As posted NSWPP headquarters in late 1967 was also Arlington, Virginia.

I probably appear to be beating a dead horse, but Walt Brown referenced this document in his book Treachery In Dallas, [Chapter Five: The FBI page 77];

while the document itself seems to suggest the person was linked to San Antonio, the

location where the report was made, the fact that he is so similar to the individual described in the 12/4/67 Dallas Morning News, made me want to post this here in case

there could be some sort of linkage, as well as the fact that surely there is some way

to look into the Piedras Negras stolen automobile indictment......

Warren Commission Hearings Volume XVII

Current Section: CE 762 - Document prepared by Special Agent Bouck entitled "Protective Research Cases, November 1961 through November 1963."

U.S. Secret Service

Protective Research Section, C0-2-33,998

SAN ANTONIO OFFICE

DATE OF ORIGIN: November 15, 1963

ORIGIN: Information received telephonically from FBI Headquarters, Washington, D.C.

DETAILS: Subject interviewed by FBI on November 14, 1963, and stated he is a member of the Ku Klux Klan; that during his travels throughout the country, his sources have told him that a militant group of the National States Rights Party plans to assassinate the President and other high-level officials. He stated that he does not believe this is planned for the near future but he does believe this attempt will be made.

BACKGROUND OF SUBJECT: Subject was arrested on September 30, 1963 near Piedras Negras, Mexico with two other men for stealing three automobiles. Information developed by the FBI indicated that the subject was attempting to make some sort of deal with them for his benefit in the criminal case now pending against him.

There was no information developed that would indicate there was any danger to the President in the near future or during his trip to Texas. As of January 27, 1964 subject was still incarcerated pending Federal court action.

EVALUATION OF

DEGREE OF

DANGER: In view of subject’s incarceration, he was considered to be of no danger at this time.

ACTION: No further action taken

SUBSEQUENT ACTIVITY: None. An FBI report received January 31, 1964, relative their interview in jail.

STATUS ON

NOV 22, 1963: Subject Incarcerated

https://www.maryferrell.org/mffweb/archive/viewer/showDoc.do?docId=1134&relPageId=592

It is also noteworthy that the document poses some very interesting similarities

to the alleged FBI memo as described by William Walter, the one with the eight typos.
