John Caesar Grossi

New Records on John Caesar Grossi

Any proper investigation of the assassination of the president would inclue everyone who associated with the accused assassin, especially John C. Grossi.

As a prolific reader the investigation took special interest in the books Lee Harvey Oswald checked out of the Dallas and New Orleans libraries.

One peculair aspect of Oswald's Dallas library card is the inclusion of the name John Bowen, ostensibly as a reference. Bowen was an alias of John C. Grossi, who worked with Oswald at the Jaggers-Chiles-Stoval graphics arts firm.

It is curious Grossi used the same alias as Osborne - the guy who sat next to Oswald on bus to Mexico.

Grassi was a Patterson, New Jersey dropout and runaway, the son of an Army soldier who abandoned his family. On the road Grossi was arrested in New Orleans for wearing the uniform and impersonating a US Maritime Petty Officer

He was also somehow affiliated with Joe Bonnano, the New York mafia boss, or possibly his son, the subject of a book by New York Times reporter Gay Talese.

It has also been reported that Grossi lived for awhile at Pete Lacavoli's Grace Ranch in Arizona, and worked at Lacavoli's art studio and store, where he crossed paths with Lansky accountant and self professed con artist Chauncey Holt, who claims to have taught art to Lacavoli when they were in prison together. While I can't support Holt's claim to be one of the tramps at Dealey Plaza, I did visit his home and art studio and can attest to his artistic talent.

According to the recently released FBI files on Grossi, he was married, but took off on a cross country trip with his wife's car and credit card.

What's peculiar about the FBI files on Grossi is there is no mention, at least in the documents I examined, of his name on Oswald's library card or the fact they worked together at JCS, much like the new FBI files on Jim Braden document his swindling of rich windows in the 1950s but fail to mention his being taken into custody at Dealey Plaza as a suspicious person.

If It Was A Coup

If It Was A Coup

If it was a coup and the assassination of President Kennedy at Dealey Plaza was not the spontaneous and coincidental act of a deranged lone nut case - what Max Holland calls "the Best Truth" at the time, then the mechanism - the MO - Modus Operandi was that of a covert intelligence operation.

If the death of the president was the result of a covert intelligence operation and coup d'etat, then standard covert intelligence operational techniques were employed,which means those in the responsible intelligence network had to have complete and total control of communications and the scene of the operation - Dealey Plaza and especially the Texas School Book Depository (TSBD), as described by Edward Lutwack in his book "Coup d'etat - A Practical Handbood."

Instead of following "Ozzie Rabbit" - the accused assassin, who was framed for the crime, lets pull back and look at the broader picture, and see who had the capability of pulling off such a covert intelligence operation, who had such control over communications and the scene.

Let me introduce you to Mr. Bryd, Mr. Collins and Generals Doolittle and LeMay, who while not co-conspirators, were instrumental in the orchestration of the strategies and policies that allowed the covert operation at Dealey Plaza to happen. Without them, the assassintion could not have occured.

D. H. "Dry Hole" Byrd made his money in the early Texas oil industry, and invested his fortune in early aviation and financial support to the artic expedintions of his cousin, U.S. Navy Admiral Byrd.

And he purchased the building that would become known as the Texas School Book Depository (TSBD) in the 1930s, adding four floors and leasing the warehouse to various companies over the years.

On one of Admiral Byrd's early expeditions he tried to communicate by short wave radio, but the only radio receiver in North America that he  could pick up Byrd's radio transmissions was a young amateur radio enthuisast in Cedar Rapids, Iowa - a teenager named Arthur Young.

Collins went on from his parent's basement to form Collins Radio corporation, whose stock rose during World War II when Collins received military contracts, possibly because of his close, personal friendship with Air Force General Curtis LeMay, himself a HAM amateur radio buff.

It was Byrd's interest in early aviation that led him to form the Civil Air Patrol (CAP) with Cord Meyer, Sr., the father of CIA official Cord Meyer, Jr., and ex-husband of Mary Pinchot Meyer.

At the time of the assassination Byrd was on a hunting safari in Africa with German Barron W. Von Alverslaben, but previously he went on a safari with his good friend General James Doolittle, who was so close to Byrd he is mentioned in Byrd's obituary.

The 78 page Doolittle Report reomends increased secuirty and use of covert operations, especially the deployment of undercover operatives, even if they are not needed.

Another, similar report by Robert Lovitt and David Bruce, has gone totally missing from the Kennedy Library in Boston, and I've yet to locate the strategic report that the inventor of the Bell Helicopter Arthur Young told me about that joint decisions by  defense contractors to relocate to the Dallas-Fort Worth area for security reasons.

That's why Collins Radio, General Dynamics, Bell Helicopter and other major defense contractors were in the area, and provided jobs for Michael Paine, and others to relocate there.

The sudden arrival of multiple defense contractors was a financial boon to the area, but they found a decisive lack of local engineering talent, so they formed an engineering graduate school consortium that trained and funelled the necessary talent to the defense industry there. Arthur Collins was named the first director of the new

After Texas Christian University at first agreed to give President Kennedy an honorarry degree, thus giving him the excuse to give a speech in Dallas, then reniged on the offer, a Texas civic association agreed to allow JFK to give a speech to their annual meeting that was already set to honor the graduate school consortium, led by Arthur Young, that JFK mentions in the first paragraph of his undelivered speech, the original copy of which was kept in his jacket pocket and drennched in his blood.

The Walker Shooting Revisited

The Walker Shooting Revisited

[Excuse the typos, this is a first draft.]

The April 10, 1963 Walker shooting remains an enigma in the JFK Assassination story.

If the murder of Dallas policeman J. D. Tippit is the "Rosetta  Stone" of the assassination then the Walker shooting is the Prologue to the assassination. Prologue meaning, in the Shakespierian sense that the past sets the stage for the main act that's about to begin - a murder.

While it is often used by Warren Commission appologists as proof of the accused assassin's penchant for violence and ability to commit such an act, in retrospect and knowing what we know now, it appears to have been a "dry run" mission, not to actually kill Walker, but to establish those penchants and abilities.

Walker was a much easier, stationary target than the President,  moving away from the Sixth Floor of the Texas School Book Depository (TSBD), and as, George deMohrenschildt joked to Oswald, "How did you miss?"

The many outstanding questions surrounding the Walker shooting may be easier to answer than the questions we still have about what happened at Dealey Plaza, and can and should be addressed.

As Volkmar Schmidt told me and as reported in Edward J. Epstein's "Legend - the Secret Life of Lee Harvey Oswald," Schmidt said that in February 1963 he had an extended conversatiion with Oswald in which he compared Walker to Adolph Hitler, and suggested Walker should be assassinated as Hitler should have been, specifically mentioning the July 20, 1944 plot

Shortly thereafter Oswald ordered a mail order Manlicher-Carcano rifle, creating a paper tail directly to him, when he could have just paid cash for one at any Dallas sporting goods or department store, as John Hinckley did as well as a fellow TSBD employee the day before the assassination.

Oswald also ordered the rifle under one of his favorite aliases "Hidel," and had it sent to his Dallas Post Office box that wasn't authorized to receive mail  or packages for ‘Hidel’ , as his New Orleans P.O. Box was.

Unlike the assassination at Dealey Plaza, that Oswald's older brother, the late Robert Oswald called a "spontaniious"  and "coincidental," the Walker shooting was a well planned and executed mission. Oswald cased out the neighborhood ahead of time, took photographs of the Walker house, and left a detailed note for Marina, telling her what to do if he was arrested.

Oswald also had Marina take the photos of him in the backyard, dressed in black, with the rifle and pistol and holding two leftest publications, much like photos military men take before going on a mission.

Marina also said that when Oswald returned home that night, without the rifle (it was burried back at the scene), he was sweating, nervous and hyper ventalating, totally unlike his cool, calm deminier in the minutes after he is accused of blowing open the president's head.

Other anomalies in the Walker shooting story are the undisputed facts that:

1) Oswald is not known to have ever fired that rifle before that April 10, 1963 date.

2) There is no known source for the bullet. Like cigarettes, you can't buy just one bullet, they come in packs, boxes and batches. The mangled bullet from the Walker shooting, now in a vault at the National Archives, cannot be positively identified as having been shot from the rifle found in the TSBD.

3) The three shells that were found under the window on the Sixth Floor of the TSBD were traced to a batch sold to the U.S. Marine Corps in 1954. Because the USMC does not have a weapon in their invitory that can fire such ammo, it has been suggested they were to be usesd in covert operations, possibly in Guatemala, a hot spot that year.

4) FBI agent Hosty was assigned to investigate the Walker shooting and keep tabs on Oswald but didn't put two and two together even in the immedate aftermath of the assassination.

5) The Secret Service advance agents to Texas were never informed by their Protective Research unit or the local authorities, or Hosty and the FBI, that there was a Unknown Suspect sniper on the loose in the area.

6) Two men were seen leaving the scene in a car.

7) There were other suspects including residents in the Walker household.

8) Most significantly, Oswald's connection to the Walker shooting remained a secret and unknown to the Secret Service, FBI, CIA and the news media until a small article was published in an obscure Munich, Germany publication and the story was picked up and elaborated on in the National Enquirer tabloid.

That is a subject dealt with in the Warren Report in a chapter debunking conspiracy allegations, a chapter written exclusively by official Air Force historian Alfred Goldberg and investigated more thoroughly in Europe by Joachim Joestein on one Warren Report lie - The Munich Report on the Walker shooting.

Beymer in CIA Chronology

CIA Chronology

7. 2 Dec. 63. 1030
                                Incomplete Check LIENVOY file.

8. 2 Dec. Incomplete. First page missing

9. 2 Dec.    1003 Check. Not in OSWALD file.
Check Richard BEYMER

Richard BEYMER,, North American, calls Cub Emb from Acapulco and talks with Luisa CALDERON LIENVOY and asks about Silvia DURAN. Luisa says Silvia should be at her house right now. Richard asks if Silvia is hurt. Louisa says no, that she has only bruises probably because they grabbed her arm very tight but that it is not serious. She (Louisa) adds that she cannot explain by telephone and asks when Richard will be coming to Mexico City. Richard says "This depends on you people....Anything (new) known about Cuba?" Luisa, after consulting with someone, responds that there is not an answer yet, but that today a plane will be coming in from Cuba and possibly something will arrive by diplomatic pouch, and for Richard to call again tomorrow. Richard asks if Silvia still works at the Emb. Luisa responds certainly she does. Richard will call tomorrow.

BK NOTES: Beymer told me that he didn't recall Silvia Duran or the twist party she held, that was atteneded by two American gringos, one an American film actor whose name she protected because he was still alive. Of course the question is - how did Beymer in Acapulco know Duran was arrested, interrogated and hurt?

Thanks to Robin Finn for finding this reference in the records.
