🚨Lee Harvey Oswald, 24, Suspected in Assassination of President and Murder of Dallas Policeman

🚨Nov. 22, 1963 - A suspect in the assassination of President John F. Kennedy and in the murder of Dallas police officer J.D. Tippit has been identified by the Dallas Police Department as Lee Harvey Oswald, 24 years old. Mr. Oswald, who once defected to the Soviet Union and who has been unofficially connected with the Fair Play for Cuba Committee, has not yet been formally charged with either crime. Mr. Oswald is an employee at the Texas School Book Depository, the warehouse from which the fatal shots were fired at the President’s car this afternoon. A rifle was recovered at the warehouse, and the building has been sealed off. Several witnesses have placed Mr. Oswald in the building at the time of the assassination. One was quoted as saying that Oswald had stayed behind on an upper floor when other employees went down to the street to see President Kennedy’s motorcade pass by. Mr. Oswald’s only comment, shouted at reporters as he was led handcuffed through a police building corridor, was: “I haven’t shot anybody.” His left eye was slightly blackened, and there was a contusion on his right cheekbone.
