Buell Frazier is a clue to the JFK assassination

Buell Frazier was only 19 when he met Lee Harvey Oswald. They both worked at the Texas School Book Depository for minimum wage ($1.50) and Frazier sometimes drove Oswald the 15 miles to work if his broken-down Chevy was functional. The day of the assassination Oswald appeared with a two-foot-long package and told Frazier they were curtain rods. When they arrived at work, Oswald carried the package between his palm and armpit.

Frazier never swallowed the story that short package was actually a 36-inch Mannlicher-Carcano rifle. Nor did he swallow the story that soft-spoken, highly intelligent Lee Oswald shot JFK that day.

A much different, longer package from the one Frazier had seen that morning was produced for the media. Enormous efforts were made to connect Oswald to the murder weapon, and some of this activity seems to have involved fabricating evidence as it went along, which is why there was so much revision. The problem with the enormous bag shown to the media is it was put together with tape from the book depository, indicating it wasn’t the bag Oswald carried because his bag had been manufactured off-site.

I have no doubt Oswald was instructed to bring a package to work that day because he was seen departing the scene in a green Rambler station wagon driven by David Morales, or someone who looked much like Morales. Two others might have been hiding on the floorboards inside, one of whom could have been Ted Shackley.

Frazier was put through a 12-hour hostile interrogation and told at one point that Oswald had named him as a co-conspirator. He demanded and eventually got a lie detector test, which he easily passed. However, the hostility of the police towards his belief in Oswald’s innocence caused Frazier to lie very low for a long time. He was pressured to change his story and also change the length of the bag by the Warren Commission, but never wavered. The Commission eventually rejected his story and concluded his memory was not accurate.

  1. I am 63 and former U.S. Secret Service and I have studied this JFK case and many others since I was 10 years old. Even when I was in the USSS academy(1974), we were basically “ordered” to accept the WCR(Warren Commission Report) as the official agency answer. Therefore, the USSS was also involved in the cover up. Certain LBJ agents “benefited” to keep certain “Secrets”…People were later killed and not resolved.I am still puzzled by what obviously looks like a cover up and innocent people were killed cause they knew too much, like Mary Cord Meyer.

    1. The Secret Service was telling honest Dallas motorcycle cops to fake their testimony as early as Nov. 22 or 23, 1963. See 19:40 and following in H.B. McClain’s video done with C-Span


      Also, Vince Palamara discovered Secret Service Agent Tom Shipman died very mysteriously Oct. 14, 1963. This helped make sure Greer (who slowed the JFK limo twice on Elm St.) would be the driver for Dallas. Ordinarily Sam Kinney would have been JFK’s driver if Shipman weren’t available, but Kinney was used for the Queen Mary Chase car on 11-22-63.

      Admiral Burkley (JFK’s doctor) made sure to persuade Shipman’s widow to not have an autopsy, and get him buried fast. The implication is that Shipman was fed a poisoned lunch and had a “heart attack” shortly thereafter. Shipman was a hardcore loyalist and not the kind of person to go along with betraying JFK, so evidently that is why Shipman had to be eliminated.

      Adm. Burkley also was entrusted with the Harper Fragment of JFK’s skull, which Dave Mantik showed has evidence of yet another bullet hole on its edge. But Burkley made sure the Harper Fragment disappeared. Pathologists in Dallas took excellent photos of it, however, so Mantik was able to ferret out the truth years later as to yet another bullet being involved in the JFK assassination.
