Time between Tippit shooting and arrest

Recommended Posts

I've always been puzzled by the idea that Oswald traveled the 10 or 12 blocks from N. Beckley to 10th and Patton in only a few minutes (if you believe he left N. Beckley shortly after 1:00 and Tippitt was shot at 1:10 at the earliest and 1:16 according to the official record), and yet it took him the better half of a half an hour to go the six blocks from 10th and Patton to the Texas Theater.

Leaving aside for the moment whether Burroughs sold him popcorn at 1:15, or that Oswald sat next to Jack Davis at the theater earlier than that:


The police dispatch tapes reports him ducking into the Theater at 1:44 PM.


If it wasn't Oswald at the Theater, then who was running around Oak Cliff in that half an hour, and why would it take him so long?
