  • John’s website: www.harveyandlee.net
  • Article: Westbrook and Croy by John Armstrong
  • This new article focusses for the most part on Westbrook and Croy
  • Article: The Murder of J.D. Tippit by John Armstrong
  • Nearly everything that HARVEY Oswald and LEE Oswald did on 11/22/63 was pre-planned
  • Bill Shelley was Oswald’s supervisor at the Book Depository
  • In 1963 Capt. Westbrook was in charge of the Personnel Dept. for the Dallas police
  • Westbrook had nothing to do with Capt. Will Fritz’s homicide and robbery division
  • Yet following the shooting of President Kennedy Westbrook was everywhere
  • He was the first police officer to arrive at the Texas Theater
  • HARVEY Oswald rode to the Book Depository with Wesley Frazier
  • Frazier’s sister, Linnie Mae Randle, told the WC that Oswald was wearing a grey jacket with big sleeves
  • CE 163 (the jacket)
  • Westbrook’s whereabouts from the time he was last seen at the police station (circa 12:35 pm)
    to his arrival at the book depository are unknown
  • Westbrook told the WC that he walked one mile to the Texas Book Depository Building–a 22 minute walk
  • Reserve officer Sgt. Croy told the WC that when President Kennedy was shot, at 12:30 PM,
    he was “sitting in his car at the city hall”—police headquarters
  • According to Croy, he and his estranged wife had gone to lunch together at Austin’s Barbecue
  • John Armstrong believes that Croy met with Capt. Westbrook and rode in Westbrook’s dark blue,
    unmarked police car, driving to the Book Depository
  • HARVEY Oswald boarded the Marsalis bus and then decided to get off the bus (around 12:44 PM)
  • Two police officers boarded the bus and searched passengers for weapons, around 12:47 to 12:50 PM
  • Why would police board a bus on Elm St. that was headed toward the Book Depository?
  • This was not discussed nor investigated by the Warren Commission nor by the FBI nor the Dallas Police
  • Police car 207
  • Police officer at the Tippit scene before the ambulance arrived
  • The “discovery” of Oswald’s jacket
  • Westbrook was the in charge of personnel dept.
  • Yet he did not remember the name of a single police officer with whom he came in contact that afternoon
  • The second wallet found at the Tippit scene
  • The second wallet was not entered into evidence
  • The only items from this wallet that survived were the two identification cards with the name “Hidell”
  • Two identification cards obtained from the second wallet showed Oswald and Hidell were the same person
  • FBI agent James Hosty published his book Assignment Oswald in March 1996
  • For the first time, JFK researchers learnt about the second wallet which Hosty described in his book
  • Researchers were desperate to interview Westbrook after learning about the second wallet
  • But Westbrook died of cancer only a few weeks before the book was released !!!
  • Following the shooting of HARVEY Oswald by Jack Ruby, Dallas Police Chief Jesse Curry
    assembled a special squad of detectives to investigate the murder of Oswald
  • The senior police officer in charge of this “special squad” was none other than Capt. Westbrook
  • Westbrook went on to work with the CIA
  • Westbrook relocated to South Vietnam where he was a CIA-sponsored advisor to the Saigon Police Dept
