Lee Harvey Oswald’s assassination, November 24, 1963.
On November 24, 1963, Oswald was being led through the basement of Dallas Police Headquarters in advance of his transfer to the county jail. At 11:21 am, Jack Ruby stepped from the crowd and shot Oswald in the chest. Oswald was rushed unconscious to Parkland Memorial Hospital — the same hospital where President Kennedy died two days earlier. Oswald died at 1:07 pm.
My name is Lee Harvey Oswald, I work at the Texas School Book Depository Building. I lived in Minsk and in Moscow, I worked in a factory, I liked everything there except the weather. I have a wife and some children. My residence is 1026 North Beckley, Dallas, Texas. You have been at my home two or three times talking to my wife. I don’t appreciate your coming out there when I was not there — Please take the handcuffs from behind me, behind my back — I observed a rifle in the Texas School Book Depository where I work, on November 20, 1963. Mr. Roy Truly, the supervisor, displayed the rifle to individuals in his office on the first floor, I never owned a rifle myself.
I was present in the Texas School Book Depository Building, I have been employed there since October 15, 1963. My usual place of work is on the first floor. However, I frequently use the fourth, fifth, sixth, seventh floors to get books. I was on all floors this morning, because of all the confusion, I figured there would be no work performed that afternoon so I decided to go home, I changed my clothing and went to a movie. I carried a pistol with me to the movie because I felt like it, for no other reason. I fought the Dallas Police who arrested me in the movie theater where I received a cut and a bump. I didn’t shoot President John F. Kennedy or Officier J. D. Tippit.

So a while back i was at this party and i was the first girl to arrive and there were like 20 guys already there, we were all siting around, having a beer and whatnot when the dj arrived. So all the guys went out the front of the house to help set up the dj gear and it was just me sitting there alone in the backyard for like 5 minuets. I stood up to go follow them bc i was getting really bored when i realized something, my period had gone through my white pants and stained the while chair, i was humiliated, i had no idea what to do, i could hear the guys were coming back and i had to do something quick, time was running out. So i grabbed the chair, ran like 10 meters and threw it over the fence into the neighboring yard, i quickly walked back and tied my jacket around my waist. The guys soon returned and didn’t suspect a thing, i am amazing.
