The Man About Town

A further review of the man several officials feasibly did not identify in Dallas, who bought a new rifle for a hunting trip, was the subject of prior FBI reports noting threats to JFK, and who dined near Dealey Plaza on the morning of November 22, 1963.

RION: John and Jo Beth Hill


The statement of Jo Beth Hill placing herself and her husband blocks from Dealey Plaza around the time of President Kennedy's assassination. While her statement does not infer a definite nefarious connection, it does support unknown possibly armed men in the area could largely escape official notice. #JFK #Evidence

RION: Manuel "Tony" Varona


The statement of Manuel "Tony" Varona recounts a meeting about Cuba between him and featured Mafia notable Meyer Lansky.

The legal statement of Former Assistant Director of the FBI William Sullivan regards the internal actions and vendettas of J. Edgar Hoover against the CIA and Warren Commission.  They include leaking secret or embarrassing CIA information and then promoting disinformation to blame other officials, and seeking to prevent the Warren Commission's investigation from deviating from his prejudgment of Oswald's guilt. #JFK #Evidence
