Tim Gratz Posted May 26, 2005 Share Posted May 26, 2005 I recently mentioned purchasing "Marita" by Marita Lorenz and Ted Schwarz. The bookcover gives no information who Schwarz is, BTW. Which reminds me of a "pet peeve". I think the bios of authors can be helpful but they are usually only printed on the dustcover and not within the book. So if you lose the dustcover you no longer have the author's bio. Back to the book. She has the car caravan leaving much earler in the week than I thought. So it is not inconsistent with LHO being in Irving on Thursday night. It is however inconsistent with his work at the TSBD that week. She says passengers in the first car besides herself were Sturgis, Pedro Diaz Lanz and Orlando Bosch. She puts Ozzie in the second car. Apparently this car also contained (per her) Gerry Hemming (in the book she only identifies him as "Gerry") and the Novis brothers. She liked Gerry, who she said hated the Novis brothers. She says that when she became disgusted with what was going on, she left the operation, and, she says, Gerry did at the same time. She says neither she nor Gerry knew what the operation was about. She says that among the weapons in the cars' trunk were C-4 explosives which, interestingly, she says "could be used for a diversion or to bring down a highway overpass. It would make an excellent car bomb . . ." She says E Howard Hunt came by early in the morning on Thursday, November 21st and gave Sturgis money. A short time later, a man she later identified as Jack Ruby stopped by. Ruby was disgusted at her presence. It was on Thursday that she flew back to Miami. As I recall, in Hargraves' interview with Twyman he states he did not know what the operation was about. Nor does Hargraves place Hemming in Dallas. And of course Hemming denies the whole Marita story. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
