It was a tour de force. Richard A. Sprague, L'53, grand inquisitor, fierce competitor and Philadelphia's preeminent trial lawyer, gave a lecture at Penn Law in March 2009 that seemed more like a clinic on how to prosecute a murder case.

In short, he killed.

Speaking to a capacity crowd attending an installment in the Dean's Speakers Series, Sprague ranged over his 50-year career, recalling his lead role in everything from a test of the insanity defense to a congressional investigation of the Kennedy assassination to the murder of Joseph "Jock" Yablonski by United Mine Workers president Tony Boyle.

Sprague clearly says that the he, Sprague, became interested in Mexico because the "Warren Commission", (not HSCA) had been told that Oswald had been seen with a CIA supervisory agent and that they discounted this because the CIA said he was in Mexico at that time.

This statement is the opening statement in this video.
