The day after Jack Ruby shot Lee Oswald, the Dallas Times Herald ran this news article on the front page under the headline “Anonymous Call Forecast Slaying During Transfer”:
“An anonymous telephone call to Federal Bureau of Investigation headquarters at 2:15 a.m. warned that Leo [sic] Harvey Oswald would be killed during his transfer from the city lockup to county jail. The FBI said it immediately relayed the warning to police and the sheriff’s office. … Sheriff Bill Decker said his dispatcher received the call from the FBI just after 2:15 a.m. The city police dispatcher said the call never came to his attention. It could not be determined if it was routed to another office or official.”
Why did no one in local law enforcement follow up on this warning? Original research in The Final Truth explains the real reason Ruby killed Oswald.
