Dallas attorney Carroll Jarnagin believed that he had seen Lee Harvey Oswald with nightclub owner Jack Ruby before the assassination of President Kennedy. This story is detailed in the previous article at this link:

Rob Clark of the excellent Podcast “The Lone Gunman” writes in with some more information:

“Excellent article and info, Barry Ernest in his book “The Girl on the Stairs”, also recounts visiting Jarnigan in a few occasions. The first visit relatively pleasant, the next Ernest said he was extemely paranoid and acting funny. I recommend it if you haven’t read it. It’s also in Joachim Joesten’s book “Oswald:The Truth” which also supposes that the man Jarnigan thought was Oswald was actually Larry Crafard. Which would make more sense and lends credence to Mary Lawrence’s story who was a waitress there, Crafard admitted in his WC testimony that he did indeed meet Ruby there in the wee hours of 11/22.

All the best,
Rob”

Larry Crafard was a drifter that had claimed to have west coast mob connections. He somehow landed at Jack Ruby’s club and worked for Ruby, basically for rent in the back of the club. He has often been suggested as an “Oswald look-alike” and Crafard fled Dallas after the shooting of Kennedy, Officer Tippet and Oswald.
Rob makes a good point, but that doesn’t tie up all the loose ends of Carroll Jarnagin’s allegation that Ruby was discussing assassinations with the man supposed to be Oswald, the possible sighting at the B&B Diner of the two, and Jarnagin’s mention of Ruby also meeting with Weissman, Tippet and possibly General Walker.
To my eye, Crafard and Oswald do not look so much alike, but with Jarnagin’s memory fogged by drinking, it’s very possible that Crafard was the guy.

One Response to Jarnagin, Ruby And Oswald Part 2 – Larry Crafard

    Was Larry Crafard left-handed? Because one of the (most reliable) Tippit shooting eyewitnesses, cabbie Wm. Scoggins, swore that the person he saw fleeing the scene carried his pistol in the left hand. Oswald, of course, was right-handed.

  • Carter Page And The Real “Spygate”
    During the Presidential campaign, “Mafia Don” was able to turn criticism of his staff’s use of “Alternative Facts” into the catchphrase “Fake News”. That label has stuck in an “I’m rubber, you’re glue” fashion and worked in Trump’s favor. Now, with increased pressure on Trump’s crime family, carnival barker-in-chief Trump has turned scrutiny of Russian […]

    In April we looked at a report by Dr. Jeffrey Kaye that detailed how the U.S. military and CIA dropped Plague-infested fleas onto North Korean villages. This new information Kaye dug up answers a lot of questions from that era – and introduces us to a long line of biological war projects that coincidentally dovetails […]

    It’s not often that I read and review fiction, but with the Trump presidency devolving into a desperate, rabid beast it was time to read “It Can’t Happen Here” by Sinclair Lewis. The book, which was written in 1935 as Fascism was rising in Europe, accurately predicted the rise of an authoritarian like Mein Trumpf. […]
