The Mysterious Phone Tip That Oswald Would Be Killed
The report in The Dallas Times Herald (11-25-63, p. 1) described a single anonymous 2:15 am telephone tip to “Federal Bureau of Investigation headquarters.” The FBI immediately “relayed” the tip to the Dallas County Sheriff’s Office and the Dallas Police Department. Nobody from local law enforcement heard the tipster’s voice.
This may surprise my faithful readers but Jack Ruby likely placed that 2:15 am phone call. He was pressured to kill Oswald and feared his clubs might be shut down if he didn’t. He was hoping his attempt would be prevented, hence the call, and he knew he had to tip the FBI rather than local law enforcement who would have recognized his voice. Afterwards he urged ‘get me out of Dallas to Washington so I can reveal my true motives,’ which were not the knee-jerk reasons of silencing Oswald or retribution for killing J. F. Kennedy.
But it was not a spur-of-the-moment killing. This thing was staged.
