JFK Assassination: Fritz notes Oswald said he was “out with Bill Shelley in front”
April 5, 2014
Updated: Sept.27, 2014
That’s what Lee Harvey Oswald told Captain Will Fritz, whose abbreviated notes were hidden until they were released in 1997 by ARRB: http://www.jfklancer.com/Fritzdocs.html
Latest update: Judyth Baker, author of “Me and Lee”, has done a pixel analysis of Oswald’s shirt vs. Lovelady’s which proves Oswald is Doorman. https://docs.google.com/document/d/1X2eD2Wl3xSmRHTuE02ntfYkb3ES2Kuo8wl3HHzzAlD8/pub
Billy Lovelady’s Warren Commission testimony: http://jfkassassination.net/russ/testimony/lovelady.htm
Mr. LOVELADY – Yes, sir.
Mr. BALL – Take a pen or pencil and mark an arrow where you are.
Mr. LOVELADY – Where I thought the shots are?
Mr. BALL – No; you in the picture.
Mr. LOVELADY – Oh, here (indicating).
Mr. BALL – DRAW AN ARROW DOWN TO THAT; DO IT IN THE DARK. You got an arrow in the DARK and one in the white pointing toward you. Where were you when the picture was taken?
Mr. LOVELADY – Right there at the entrance of the building standing on the TOP STEP, would be here (indicating).
Mr. BALL – You were standing on which step?
Mr. LOVELADY – It would be your TOP LEVEL.
Mr. BALL – The TOP STEP you were standing there?
Mr. LOVELADY – Right.
QUESTION 1: Assume Oswald was photographed in Altgens6. Then of course he could not have shot JFK. Would you expect that Will Fritz’s notes that Oswald was “out with Bill Shelley in front” would be hidden for 30 years? Yes or No?
QUESTION 2: Let’s assume Oswald was out front of the TSBD at 12:30 and Billy Lovelady knew it but would not lie. If the WC wanted to frame Oswald, they could not let Billy identify him in Altgens6. Lovelady was asked to place a DARK arrow pointing to himself in the DARK area rather than in the light area as Buelle Frazier had done before him. Could the reason he was asked to do so be that no one would see that he was actually pointing to himself standing to the LEFT of Oswald (who was standing on the 1st floor) while Lovelady was standing on the FIRST STEP (not on the floor level)? Yes or No?)
QUESTION 3: If a photo, video, document, testimony, etc. had to be altered or fabricated to convict Oswald, do you suppose it would have been? Yes or No?
QUESTION 4: If a witness could confirm that Oswald was standing out front, would he/she be allowed to so testify? Yes or No?
QUESTION 5: If a witness could confirm that Oswald was standing out front and was allowed to testify, would he/she be asked the question? Yes or No?
QUESTION 6: If a witness was a participant in the conspiracy to make LHO the patsy and was asked if LHO was out front, would he/she say he was? Yes or No?
QUESTION 7: Neither Lovelady, Shelley or others were asked directly if Oswald was out front. Would it have been a logical question to ask. Yes or No?
QUESTION 8: If Oswald was in the lunchroom holding a coke at 12:31, as stated by officer Baker and Roy Truly, then it confirms his innocence. He could not have run down without being heard or seen from the 6th floor to the 2nd floor in 75-90 second, bought a coke and not show shortness of breath. But he told Will Fritz that he was OUT FRONT WITH BILL SHELLEY at 12:30. Why would he NOT be out front watching the motorcade at 12:30? It takes 10 seconds to walk to the 2nd floor lunchroom from the front of the TSBD. Doesn’t it make sense that Oswald told the truth to Fritz, especially since a) he already had an alibi (Bill Shelley), who was never asked by the WC if LHO was out front and b) Oswald was seen by Truly and Baker at 12:31 with a coke? Yes or No?
QUESTION 9: Lovelady died at age 41 in Jan. 1979 (during the HSCA investigation) from “complications” due to a heart attack. What was the probability that a 41 year old white male would die from a heart attack in 1979? The overall age-adjusted cardiac mortality rate was 0.0004 (1 in 2,500). But for a 41 year old, it was 1 in 10,000. One must assume that as a critical witness Lovelady would have been sought to testify at the HSCA. Yes or No?
QUESTION 10: In light of the above, why do so many intelligent researchers who believe Oswald was framed continue to insist that he is not in the Altgens6 photo because “it looks like Lovelady”? Is that a sufficient response in light of the fact that Doorman’s open shirt style is different from Lovelady’s? And why were witnesses standing to the left of Doorman blotted out? Weren’t the Oswald backyard photos proven to be fakes and the Z-film altered? Should researchers at least accept the possibility that Oswald is Doorman? Yes or No?
Lee Harvey Oswald was Doorman standing in front of the TSBD in the Altgens6 photo taken at 12:30, the moment JFK was shot. Billy was to the left of Lee. THIS IS PROOF OF OSWALD’S INNOCENCE. IT’S TIME TO CLOSE THE BOOK ON THE UNENDING PARLOR GAME. OSWALD SAID HE WAS “OUT FRONT WITH BILL SHELLEY”. THERE IS NO REASON TO BELIEVE THAT HE WAS LYING. HE NEVER FIRED A SHOT.
Those who claim Lovelady was Doorman because no TSBD employee identified Oswald lose sight of this very simple fact: They could not say they saw Oswald since it had already been determined that he was the Lone Gunman. Would the WC let anyone testify that he or she saw Oswald out front like he said? That would have upset the pre-determined plan to convict Oswald as the Lone Nut assassin. Does anyone here believe the WC would allow such earth-shaking testimony clearing Oswald ? If you do, I have a bridge in Brooklyn to sell you.
Carolyn Arnold, a secretary working for the Texas School Book Depository, provided support for Lee Harvey Oswald’s alibi, that he was on the first (i.e. ground) floor of the TSBD at the time of President Kennedy’s assassination. She was not interviewed by the Warren Commission. http://22november1963.org.uk/carolyn-arnold-witness-oswald
This video interview of Roger Craig is the ULTIMATE proof that Billy Lovelady was NOT “Doorman”. The proof has been hidden in plain sight. I viewed the Craig interview a dozen times before noticing Lovelady at the bottom right of the screen. Other researchers confirmed that they had also missed Lovelady in the video.
At the 2 minute mark, a balding Billy Lovelady appears at the lower right of the screen for just a few seconds. He is looking at the front of the TSBD wearing a checkered patterned shirt – buttoned to the collar. No tee shirt is visible. It was NOT the shirt that Doorman was wearing. This is THE smoking gun.
William Shelley testified under oath that he was standing on the TOP landing of the entrance to the TSBD. Billy Lovelady testified that he SAT on the steps in FRONT of Shelley. Doorman is standing in Altgens6.
Mr. SHELLEY – Oh, several people were out there waiting to watch the motorcade and I went out to join them.
Mr. BALL – And who was out there?
Mr. SHELLEY – Well, there was Lloyd Viles of McGraw-Hill, Sarah Stanton, she’s with Texas School Book, and Wesley Frazier and Billy Lovelady joined us shortly afterwards.
Mr. BALL – You were standing where?
Mr. SHELLEY – Just outside the glass doors there.
Mr. BALL – That would be on the top landing of the entrance?
Mr. SHELLEY – yes.
Mr. BALL – Did you see the motorcade pass?
Mr. LOVELADY – That’s on the second floor; so, I started going to the domino room where I generally went in to set down and eat and nobody was there and I happened to look on the outside and Mr. Shelley was standing outside with Miss Sarah Stanton, I believe her name is, and I said, “Well, I’ll go out there and talk with them, sit down and eat my lunch out there, set on the steps,” so I went out there.
Mr. BALL – You ate your lunch on the steps?
Mr. LOVELADY – Yes, sir.
Mr. BALL – Who was with you?
Mr. LOVELADY – Bill Shelley and Sarah Stanton, and right behind me
Mr. BALL – What was that last name?
Mr. LOVELADY – Stanton.
Mr. BALL – What is the first name?
Mr. LOVELADY – Bill Shelley.
Mr. BALL – And Stanton’s first name?
Mr. LOVELADY – Miss Sarah Stanton.
Mr. BALL – Did you stay on the steps?
Mr. LOVELADY – Yes.
Mr. BALL – Were you there when the President’s motorcade went by?
Mr. LOVELADY – Right
In Altgens6 Doorman is obviously wearing a long-sleeve shirt, opened to reveal his tee shirt. But the FBI 2/29/64 photo of Lovelady shows him wearing a short-sleeve striped shirt. Why would the FBI insist that he was wearing a short-sleeve shirt on 11/22/63 when Doorman is clearly wearing a long sleeve shirt? The photo evidence was distorted: http://oswald.shorturl.com/
This GIF conforms with Shelley’s and Lovelady’s testimony of where they were positioned at the TSBD. It shows that Altgens6 was ALTERED to MORPH Oswald’s face to Lovelady while Lovelady’s was BLOCKED out. It is reminiscent of the fake Oswald backyard photos in which his face was superimposed over another body. Oswald said he could prove it – but never got the chance. Now it all fits: http://betshort.com/loveos.gif
Lovelady’s Shirt: Plaid (11/22/63) vs Striped (2/29/64)
According to researcher Josiah Thompson, Lovelady told CBS News that the striped, short sleeved shirt he was photographed wearing by the FBI on 2/29/64 was NOT the shirt he was wearing on 11/22/63. He said he wore a PLAID, box patterned shirt. The shirt matched the one seen in the Roger Craig interview at the 2 minute mark. https://conspiracycritic7.files.wordpress.com/2013/09/wpid-wpid-2013-07-22-21-36-33-picsay.jpeg
In 1971, Lovelady and his wife wrote this for Robert Groden, claiming he wore a plaid shirt in 11/22/63: https://conspiracycritic7.files.wordpress.com/2013/09/wpid843-wpid-6989002969_5633154508_z.jpeg
Notice how the figures to the left of Oswald have been blotted out. No one is identifiable. Why? http://www.veteranstoday.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/08/GrodenAnnot-one-half14.jpg
This looks like Billy Lovelady sitting in the police station as Oswald is brought in after his arrest. If it is a fake photo, as some suggest, what was the rationale for inserting Lovelady in it?

Did Officer Baker and Roy Truly encounter Oswald on the 2nd floor? http://jfkthelonegunmanmyth.blogspot.com/2013/01/the-lunchroom-encounter-that-never-was.html
Is this another photo of Oswald at the TSBD (from the Darnell film)?
Of 17 TSBD employees interviewed by the Warren Commission, 9 said the shots came from the Grassy Knoll (GK), 5 TSBD (TB), 1 Knoll and TSBD, 1 other, 1 not asked
