The True Motive Behind the Silencing of Oswald
As I had previously just mentioned, Jack Ruby was/is the man responsible for the murder of Lee Harvey Oswald. As Oswald was being transferred through a horde of media reporters, and at approximately 11:21 a.m on the 24th, November, 1963, he jumped out from the crowd and delivered the fatal shot before being subdued himself and all on live television in front of millions of people.
THE ASSASSINATION OF OSWALD
His reasoning for this seemed quite peculiar (possibly this was what really sparked off Ruby's suspiciousness in the first place) and it seemed to change overtime as after being arrested for the murder, he claimed that he was merely trying to avenge Kennedy's death and spare Jackie Kennedy the ordeal of going to trial etc. In other words, he was attempting to obtain for himself something of a heroic styled persona.
Then it began to change a few times. On one occasion he claimed it was just a spur of the moment type of thing that caused him to jump out of the crowd, grab his handgun and pull the trigger - which we know is a lie as we can see him in videos of Oswald conducting interviews - Jack Ruby posing as a reporter attempting to blend in each time. It was claimed though that prior to the shooting he drove into town to take care of some money issues to an employee, walked to the local police station, leaving his dog to be taken care of, as well as pay off some debts, then made the decision to head over to the police station where he murdered Oswald in the basement.
Something that if true doesn't seem like a spur of the moment type of decision at all. Also, after some research, It seems as though this employee is more than likely a women called Teresa Norton and she was actually one of the last people on earth to speak to him before he took the decision (although that in itself is debatable) to shoot Lee Harvey Oswald. She was also known by other names, one of which was Karen Bennet Carlin.
Now Carlin previously had a telephone conversation with Ruby, in which she asked him for a $25 advance so that she would be able to pay her rent and buy groceries etc. Ruby had agreed and volunteered himself to stop at the Western Union office and send her a money order, as he said he had "business in downtown Dallas" (Perhaps his business was Oswald - it was claimed that he was 'ordered' to shoot him after all). Ruby drove into the downtown area, parked across the street from the Western Union office, paid for the money order to Norton (A.K.A Carlin), and then walked the few remaining blocks to the Dallas Police Department, which is actually where he was able to shoot Oswald.
The theory put forth by Frank Sheeran claims that Ruby was involved in the assassination of the president in the first place in some way or another and after Oswald was caught Ruby was then assigned the role of coordinating police officers loyal to him to get close to and then murder Oswald while he was in their custody as he had great connections with them.
Once this didn't happen Ruby was quite literally forced to do it himself by his superiors or he would pay 'with his own life.' Presumably they were worried delicate secrets would be revealed thus motivation to permanently "silence" Oswald. Others claim Oswald was an agent working undercover trying to gather information on a group who were plotting to murder Kennedy and after the assassination he was on his way to arrest those involved (Jack Ruby lived in Oak Cliff for example, this being where Oswald was arrested).
The most interesting connection Jack Ruby has to this case though comes from one of the dancers (Rose Cheramie) from the Carousel club which he owned though:
Rose Cheramie (Cherami) was found unconsciousness by the side of the road at Eunice, Louisiana, on 20th November, 1963. Lieutenant Francis Frugé of the Louisiana State Police took her to the state hospital.Next post..
