Who do you think is "88"


Recommended Posts

CITY OF MIAMI, FLORIDA

INTER-OFFICE MEMORANDUM

TO: C.H. Sapp, Det. Sgt.

Intelligence Unit

FROM: Everett Kay, Detective

Intelligence Unit

DATE: 12-4-63

SUBJECT:

REFERENCES:

ENCLOSURES:

-----------------------------------

At approximately 6:00 p.m. 3 December 1963, I was contacted by informant known to us as ‘88"

This person was quite upset and relayed to me the following information:

It appears that on or about 27 November 1963, F.B.I. agents questioned a man known to us as MILTEER at Valdosta, Georgia. The extent of this questioning is not determined as this time; but it appears that is was with reference to the assassination of President Kennedy in Dallas, Texas.

"88" called MILTEER and "88" found this information out, and he stated to me that MILTEER was all FOGGED UP, and could not understand why the F.B.I. would question him and how it came about.

"88" stated to me "These people are going to get me killed by such actions"; but he was not fearful of this happening.

I advised "88" to assume status quo position until advised by Detective Sergeant Sapp...

I believe that's Willie Sommerset.

FWIW,

White supremacist organisations tend to use the number 88 as a codename. H for Hitler being the 8th letter of the alphabet.

Do a google search for such organisations as I don't want to post directly to them.

88 would be an apt codename for Somerset, given that he was informing on Milteer.
