Coming soon: Inside Oswald’s wallet

Seen at the crime: Dallas police officers handling Lee Oswald’s wallet

From Bill Simpich, author of the revelatory new book State Secret, comes another piece of original research into JFK’s assassination:

The story of Lee Harvey Oswald’s wallet, found at the scene of the murder of Dallas police officer J.D. Tippit.

The story emerges from long-ago film footage from Dallas TV station WFAA showing law enforcement officers handling the wallet. While WFAA’s report last November argues that the footage proves that Oswald killed Officer Tippit, Simpich digs deeper — into the contents of the wallet itself — and discovers a less reassuring story.

Look for the story on Monday April 21.

    I look forward to the story. Meantime, something most interesting in regard to the wallet.

    Gladys Johnson owned the rooming house at 1026 N. Beckley, where we’re told Oswald had a room under the name O.H. Lee. On November 22, 1963, Gladys Johnson returned to the rooming house between 1:30 p.m. and 2:00 p.m. according to what she told the W.C.

    From her W.C. testimony, one can glean that before she arrived, DPD officers showed up and ransacked Oswald’s room in the presence of housekeeper Earline Roberts.

    What’s interesting and sinister is that Oswald wasn’t arrested at the Texas Theater until 1:50 p.m. How did the cops show up at his rooming house before or just about then?

    The only explanation that makes sense goes something like this: There was indeed a throw-down wallet at the Tippit murder site that contained a written record of Oswald’s address.

    If there was a throw-down wallet, it’s clear beyond doubt the Tippit killing was pre-planned and not serendipitous.

    Will it address the other wallet(s) too?

    To all Kennedy assassination researhers:

    I’m having a new book on the CIA called “Tales From LangleY; The CIA From Truman to Obama” coming out in May.The book containes 3 chapters on the Kennedy case, 1) the Bay of Pigs invasion, 2) the CIA-Mob plots to kill Castro and 3) the John Scelsco/Whitten CIA’s secret report on the Kennedy assassination. The book traces the history of the CIA from William Donovan to now, including 9-11 and the Bengazi attack. Anyone interested should go to for futher info.

  4. The problem is there are at least three wallets in evidence. John Armstrong found five wallets in evidence.

  5. Jean Davison says:

    The WFAA report contends that the Tippit scene wallet is the Oswald wallet now at the National Archives, but clearer photos at Dale Myers’ site show that although they are very similar, they are NOT the same.
