Unidentified photo of Eddie Walther


Recommended Posts

The photo next to Photo 1-15 shows an object in someone's hands, possibly Deputy Sherrif Eddie "Buddy" Walthers. The only place it appears is in Gary Shaw's Cover Up. If any one is in contact with Gary Shaw would you please ask him where he got from the picture from?

This is a rare photo of Joe Foster pointing to the spot where he saw a bullet hit.

I know from reading your website that you have gone back and forth trying to determine whether or not the blond headed man to the right of this photo was Dallas FBI Agent Bob Barrett.

Were you ever able to get a definitive answer?

I've been wondering if the blond headed man was Dallas Field Office Secret Service Agent William H. Patterson.

In his statement, Patterson wrote that he remained in the vicinity of Air Force 1 until it left, at which time he returned to the Dallas Field Office. (25H788)

However, we know that he did not remain there, because in his statement, Allen Sweatt places Patterson in the Sheriff's office sometime after 1:30 when two girls (who I believe were Jean Hill and Mary Moorman) were brought in to Sweatt. Patterson signed for the pictures and gave them his card.

....Good Day Denis.... Thank You for the photos.

FOSTER (who stood on the TOP east side during the attack) in the photo is

actually pointing to the grass just west of the Elm Street south curb sewer where

he warrenatti-testified he saw a bullet skip into, AFTER, he first noticed a bullet

first strike the southwest corner (according to his warrenatti-

testimony) of the sewer cement apron; an important distinction.

Calculating the shadow cast by the southeast corner edge of the TSBD onto the Dal-Tex west face (running vertically, just within the north edge of the southernmost windows pair column), that photo was captured when the sun was 51 degrees past azimuth, which on 22NOV occurs at 3:29/3:30 pm cst.

"We saw the motorcade come around the corner and I heard something which I

thought was fireworks. I saw something hit the pavement at the left rear of the

car, then the car got in the right hand lane and I heard two more shots. I heard a

woman said "Oh no" or something and grab a man inside the car. I then heard

another shot and saw the bullet hit the pavement. The pavement was knocked to

the south away from the car."

According to Gary Mack, this photo was probably a Fort Worth Press photo.

From Gary Mack:

QUOTE

According to the caption, the photo was transmitted by UPI, which means it

is NOT and AP picture. So I'll return to my first note, which is that it

was probably a Fort Worth Press photo. The DAP designation in the caption

may identify it as coming from the Dallas UPI office and the P would be

the Fort Worth Press designation. I first saw the photo in the 11/22 or

11/23 Fort Worth Press and, as best I can remember, it said something like

"Staff photo."

Steve, no definite answer, unfortunately. I am pretty sure that James Leavelle knows. I will look into Patterson. Thanks.

Some people told me they could not view the photo showing the man with an object in hand. So here it is:

A bullet or bullets found in the grass is certainly an interesting possibility. If I remember correctly, didn't those involved (Walthers and Foster) deny finding a bullet when questioned years later?

I also seem to remember that a bullet was found on the roof top of another building years later; maybe the County Records Building but I may be wrong there.

In addition to the above, I also recall that about a week before the assassination, a shot was fired at a woman's car as it approached the Triple Underpass and lodged in her vehicle. Her name was Blackwell or something similar.

FWIW.

James
