OTHER SUSPECTS -

Vincent Bugliosi and others have made the claim that there are no other suspects besides Lee Harvey Oswald, and that's certainly not true, as there were and are a number of other suspects in the assassination of President Kennedy.

http://jfkcountercoup.blogspot.com/2013/10/other-suspects.html

1) John Martin. Not the Jack Martin from New Orleans, but John Martin of Northern Louisiana, a eccentric young man who belonged to a religious cult, and was considered an early suspect in the assassination by the Secret Service agents stationed at the Trade Mart. At the time of the assassination they contacted the Special Agent in Charge of New Orleans Secret Service office John W. Rice, who was in the office of special investigations at the USAF base in Schrievport, Rice was ordered to conduct an immediate background check on this John Martin, after which, when he got back to New Orleans, was told to forget it and look into Lee Harvey Oswald. Who was and what happened to this John Martin?

2) Joe Molina - worked in the credit dept. of TSBD, member of organization considered subversive so the DPD Special Services Unit - Jack Revil, Capt. Gannaway, et al. raided his home at 2 am on the morning of Sat. Nov. 23, to question Molina and get any subversive materials or evidence they could find in his home.

3) The college students who were photographed by newsmen attacking Adlai Stevenson were affiliated with Gen. Walker and were targeted for infiltration by undercover Denton PD officer. THeir photos were handed out to SS agents at Trade Mart and they may have been arrested there. One of them was later charged in the Stevenson incident and went to court.

4) James Parrot. On the afternoon of the assassination George H. W. Bush dropped a dime on Parrott, saying that he threatened the president and Bush considered him suspect.

5) Ed Lansdale, former CIA USAF PsyOps General, one time head of Mongoose, may have been in Fort Worth hotel the night before the assassination and may have been photographed at Dealey Plaza in the Tramps pictures.

6) William Harvey, CIA official, America's James Bond, former head of Task Force W, Johnny Roselli's CIA case officer, CIA COS Rome and after retiring from CIA legal counsel to Bobbs-Merrell book publishers, who maintained an office at the TSBD. First to identify Kim Philby as a KGB double agent.

7) James Jesus Angleton, a CIA counter-intelligence officer, handled the CIA's Israel/MOSSAD desk, friend and protégé of MI6/KGB double agent Kim Philby, maintained a separate file on Oswald since defection, and privy to Oswald's shennagans in Mexico City, which effectively blackballed most if not all of the intelligence agencies when the assassination went down and Oswald associated with it, regardless of his role.

Bill,

By suspects do you mean conspirators (as your list suggests) or shooters? I ask because, the list of possible conspirators could get into the hundreds and a list of possible shooters may be more manageable.

Let me add ( - just sticking to shooters):

8) Christian David and Lucien Sarti. Many, including E. Howard Hunt, have suggested that the man/men behind the knoll were French/Corsican gangsters contracted by the Mafia.

9) Frank Sturgis. Longtime soldier of fortune, closely connected to CIA and Anti-Cuban intelligence circles. Later Watergate Burglar with E. Howard Hunt. Claimed to be directly employed by CIA (which they deny, of course). Also pinned by Hunt as part of Hit Squad.

10) Malcom Wallace. LBJ's personal hitman. Who's prints may or may not be on the boxes from the TSBD, depending on whose fingerprint expert you want to believe.

11) Jack Daugherty. TSBD Employee who admitted to being on 5th or 6th floor about the time of shooting and who's testimony arouses a lot of suspicion.

12) Eugene Hale Brading. Arrested outside Dal-Tex Building shortly after shooting. Mafia/ H.L. Hunt/ Big Oil Connections.

13) Larry Florer. Arrested outside County Records Building after being discovered in an unauthorized area. Claimed he was looking for a phone.

14) The three tramps. Whomever they may be.

15) Luis Posada Carriles. Scott Kaiser asked him directly the other day if he was in Dallas on Nov. 22 1963. Email Scott if you'd like to know what he said.

Possible Conspirators:

16) Cord Meyer and Antonio Veciana: Both named as co-conspirators with David Philips by E. Howard Hunt,

Hi Chris,

I was just thinking at first of those the Dallas officials considered suspects other than Oswald, and then added a few who I thought should be legitimate suspects - not just a list of all those who are accused of being involved.

I think it should be limited to those we know of who could have been the Sixth Floor Sniper or on the knoll.

Has anyone ever thought it odd that when the Sniper's Nest and the rifle were found, the DPD quit looking for other shooters? How did they know it was only one assassin?

Robert, I thought that to be the general consenus, in the research community, as well, but this was a surprising bit of information, at least to me, that Bill posted; 2) Joe Molina - worked in the credit dept. of TSBD, member of organization considered subversive so the DPD Special Services Unit - Jack Revil, Capt. Gannaway, et al. raided his home at 2 am on the morning of Sat. Nov. 23, to question Molina and get any subversive materials or evidence they could find in his home. So, the DPD, at least, were still looking.

The Dallas Police were still looking for suspects other than Oswald after midnight on Saturday Nov. 23rd when they raided Molina's home.

they already had their guy (Oswald). The Zapruder film was already in Washington, 3 shots 3 hits. What did they need Molina for?

Was conspiracy on DPD minds? Now THAT would be interesting.

Cross Larry Florer off the list. I just got off the phone with a witness who was watching the motorcade with Florer in Dealey Plaza at the time of the shots.

Josh,

Can you add any details? Someone who was watching the motorcade with Larry Florer probably has a lot of interesting things to say.

Bill,

Maybe in light of Mr McBride's new book "Into the Nightmare" this guy might be added:

17) Dallas Police Officer J. D. Tippet - killed by an unknown assailant/assailants in Oak Ridge. LHO charged with his murder by DPD and this was the crime he was arraigned for prior to his attempted transfer. Joseph McBride has theorized convincingly that Tippet was "badgeman" behind the picket fence on the knoll.

People keep dropping names without any evidence of their marksman ship.

I had a partner in Detroit's elite tac unit who had been a green beret in Vietnam and worked Phoenix. I verified these assignments thru a high ranking army officer I did a kindness for.

My partner claimed the job had been discussed among the GB community in Vietnam by a civilian that everyone assumed was agency. My partner caught him and a couple Vietnamese with a truck full of opium way up in "Indian Country". He burned the truck and its contents and cut the three of them loose.

I was involved Ina number of deadly forces incidents in Detroit and he never got excited regardless of what was going on.

Evan, are you saying that someone recruited Green Berets to shoot JFK?

I don't understand your post. Thanks in advance for clarifying things.

I know a good friend active in Texas Republican party politics who used to live in Houston and personally knew James Parrott.

He was very surprised when I told him that GHW Bush on 11/22/63 actually called the FBI and named Parrott as a suspect in the JFK assassination.

My friend said Parrott later was a long time precinct chair for the GOP in Houston. Was hard core right wing. But most likely was NOT running around killing people. Parrott was a long time grassroots political activist from the "right side" in Houston. My friend, then a new activist, met Parrott in the 1980's.

My friend said he actual had a campaign office for his precinct chair race, which is unheard of for these low positions.
