Ex-flame says Jack Ruby ‘had no choice’ but to kill Oswald

Gail Raven
“Gail Raven,” an exotic dancer in the southwestern United States in the 1960s, became friends with Jack Ruby.
Who says new JFK witnesses can’t be found?
 
After JFK Facts recounted Jack Ruby’s pursuit of an exotic dancer named Gail Raven in January 1963, I received a message from a woman who identified herself as Raven’s daughter. She told me that her mother was still alive, and she confirmed that her mother and Jack Ruby were close. I asked her if her mother would share her memories of the man who killed accused assassin Lee H. Oswald. She said yes.
 
In 1963 Gail Raven was the stage name of a precociously mature 20-year-old woman who danced on the national nightclub circuit that included Ruby’s Carousel Club in Dallas. Ruby (born Jack Rubenstein) was a Chicago tough guy who took a shine to her, and they became friends.
 
Now close to 70 years old, Gail Raven is living in the southern United States. I have confirmed her real name but have agreed not to publish it here to protect her privacy.

Top 5 JFK stories of the week

Rifle discovered

This week brought a burst of interest in the tagged posts on George Hickey, the late Secret Service Man who was falsely accused of firing the fatal shot that killed President Kennedy. I was glad to see people are getting the true story.

The bogus “Secret Service Man Did It” conspiracy meme (it doesn’t deserve to be called a theory) has persisted since the publication of a foolish book called Mortal Error in the 1980s. The meme was revived for the 50th anniversary of JFK’s assassination by REELZ Channel and an Australian cop who should know better. And Malcolm Gladwell should definitely know better.

JFK Facts Top 5: Stories with legs

Grassy knoll aftermath

Cops runs to the grassy knoll

 

Readers responded to Sunshine Week in Washington by making our story about secrecy around JFK records the favorite story of the week. In self-referential twist, last week’s Top 5 Countdown was the second most popular story of the week thus landing in this week’s countdown. And for the 2nd week in a role the story of cops gravitating to the grassy knoll in the aftermath of JFK’s assassination came in at number 5. As we say in the journalism business, that story has legs.

JFK Facts Top 5: Stories about evidence find favor

U.S Attorney Ron Machen changes the government’s story.

The story of how the U.S. Attorney in Washington DC made a small but significant change to the government’s accounting of the whereabouts of undercover CIA officer George Joannides in 1963 was the most viewed JFK Facts story for the week of March 6-13.

That story, like popular stories about Douglas Horne’s take on the medical evidence and sound engineer Ed Primeau’s work on the Air Force One tapes, is based on granular examination of facts and their pattern.

It seems that readers want evidence, not theories.
