Who's Who In The JFK Assassination
This area will look at various people and groups associated with the assassination. --
Buell Wesley Frazier -- Buell Wesley Frazier is a key figure in the JFK assassination drama. He only arrived in Irving, Texas, several months before November 22, 1963. His sister, Linnie Mae Randle, just happened to live a half-of-a-block from the residence of Ruth and Michael Paine. If this wasn't enough of a coincidence then we have to consider his workplace. Frazier was working at the Texas School Book Depository building on Elm Street before Lee Harvey Oswald was even hired.
What are the odds of all this happening randomly? In addition to this stuff, Frazier was in a position to provide rides to the Texas School Book Depository for Oswald when he stayed at the Paine residence. We were told by the Warren Commission that Frazier provided such a ride on the afternoon of November 21, 1963, as Oswald wanted to go to the Paines on a Thursday for a change. The Warren Commission that Oswald had never done this before, but in their 26 volumes of evidence there is proof that he had. It wasn't odd, strange or a prreparation for the next day as they claimed.
This whole Thursday visit needs to be reconsidered because LIFE magazine did an interview with Marina Oswald shortly after the assassination and she said that her husband did NOT come to the Paines on Thursday, November 21, 1963. This is a huge issue as it would sink the Warren Commission's whole thesis right there.
Under the Warren Commission's theory Oswald did go and he went to get his alleged rifle for the next day. He supposedly told Frazier that he was getting "curtain rods", but failed to tell his wife this that evening. No one saw the alleged paper bag he supposedly used to carry the rifle to work in the next morning either. Frazier would be handy for a ride to work and to help frame Oswald for the murder of JFK. The first report of Oswald carrying a bag to work (with a rifle inside it presumably) came from Frazier's sister. She went out of her way to approach the police at the Paines to tell them this. Fraizer would corroborate her story, but both said that the bag was about 24" long. This is too short to carry a dismantled 40" Mannlicher-Carcano inside. Their mother was visiting and she said she did not see Oswald carrying any bag.
Oswald said that he brought his lunch to work and that is all. Frazier was under suspicion by the Dallas Police as well. They were searching for him when his sister told the police the story about the bag. The odd thing is that Frazier made it sound like Oswald was going to get the "curtain rods" on Friday after work.
Mr. BALL - Before you left, did you look for Oswald to see about taking him home?
Mr. FRAZIER - No; I didn't, sir.
Mr. BALL - Was there some reason why you didn't?
Mr. FRAZIER - Yes, sir; I did. Because like I told you, **he was going home to get the curtain rods** and I asked him at the time, the same time, it would be about that, would he be going home with me Friday afternoon like he had been doing, he said no. So naturally when they let us go I took on off because I thought maybe they had already dismissed him and he went on home.
If Oswald was getting them on Friday this would support Marina's statement that he was not at the Paines on Thursday. It would also sink the Warren Commission's whole conclusion.
