Apparent clue to JFK death likely a fake, DA's office says
DALLAS, Texas (AP) -- A curious transcript purportedly about President John F. Kennedy's assassination has been discovered among boxes of memorabilia that were long forgotten in an old safe at the Dallas County district attorney's office.
While the transcript reads like a conspiracy theorist's dream -- Lee Harvey Oswald and Jack Ruby plotting to kill Kennedy -- the DA's top assistant said it's likely material for a proposed movie.
Other items found in an old safe on the 10th floor of the county courthouse include letters to and from former District Attorney Henry Wade, the now-dead prosecutor in the Ruby trial, The Dallas Morning News reported in Sunday's editions. Ruby shot and killed Kennedy assassin Oswald two days after the president's death.
There are also letters to Ruby, records from his trial, a gun holster and clothing that probably belonged to Ruby and Oswald, said District Attorney Craig Watkins, who planned to discuss the find at a news conference Monday.
