DONALD C. WILLIS SAID:
Now, just where does she [Helen Markham] mention a yard? And please look at the 3 CE photos on which she marked an "X" at the *corner* of the intersection, indicating where the killer was when he looked at her [Commission Exhibit 524]. And I notice you don't address her Secret Service interview, in which she stated that the killer was going down the *sidewalk* on 10th--NOT cutting across a yard. Do your homework, David.
DAVID R. VON PEIN SAID:
Use your common sense, Donald. You know damn well Markham saw Oswald. There's a mile-high pile of proof that Oswald killed Officer Tippit.
Just because Mrs. Markham didn't use the exact words that other witnesses might have used in describing how Oswald left the murder scene, you seem to think this creates reasonable doubt as to whether Oswald was there at all. But that's just crazy thinking.
She saw Oswald kill Tippit, and then she saw him walk toward Patton Avenue, and then she saw him go down Patton Avenue toward Jefferson Boulevard (which is a route that is corroborated by all other witnesses at the crime scene).
Do YOUR homework, Don.
Who is the person Markham positively identified as Tippit's murderer?
Lee Harvey Oswald.
Would Helen Markham have positively identified a person that she knew WASN'T at the scene of J.D. Tippit's murder?
Of course not. It's silly to think she would have done that.
Why do so many conspiracy theorists have a desire to exonerate Lee Oswald of the Tippit murder which Oswald committed 45 years ago today?
