    OK, but your article does not mention the Marsalis accident. I'd like to know if the author considers the accident & stabbing a staged event. If not the Tippit rubout assumes an unconvincing aleatory...

    Nothing places Tatum at the scene when the shooting took place besides his own mouth, but the same can be said of Benavides. This is covered in detail in the long "The Tippit Case in the New...

    Mailer's Tales of the JFK Assassination

    The question of locating it at Weisberg's Hood archive came up at EF, solved by visiting the wayback machine, but there's no need to do so. It's present in the active archive, although not where it...

    Continuing with Benavides/Tatum

    An article in the 11/66 issue of Ramparts mentioned an abortive attempt by Mark Lane to interview Benavides.

    Earlier this year Mark Lane located Domingo Benavides, a witness to the shooting whose...

    Just so, only other choice would be an unknown who was likewise anathema to the FBI. Tatum as contender just got knocked out of the ring. It would not have been "necessary to get rid of that red...

    Benavides' FBI statement (concluded)

    To finish up there is Fritz's 12/23/63 report to Curry which omits Benavides entirely, giving him credit for neither discovering spent shells nor witnessing the actual shooting (p.441, items 21 &...

    Benavides' FBI statement (cont.)

    So far no luck in finding FBI reports relative to statements made by either Vaganov or Benavides on 11/22/63, although both were interrogated. T.F. White is another matter. SA Brown filed several...

    Benavides' FBI statement

    The quote from the FBI memo cited earlier (#176) has an insignificant date error. More important is that Benavides gave a statement to the FBI on the date of the assassination. Recall Leavelle's...

    Tatum was not there, a conclusion reached long before reading Weston's article.

    Vaganov may have been there, it's tempting to conclude as much, but his presence was more plausible than certain.

    Longer answer

    Bowley's Ruby connection was anathema to the FBI. Benavides was a well-placed candidate to supersede Bowley. It's even possible, although doubtful, he was the person observed by Bowley fumbling with...

    Short answers

    Safe assumption. Per Leavelle, Benavides "did not see suspect."

    Purpose was to satisfy the FBI who subbed him in for Bowley.
