The CIA and the Texas School Book Depository

Claude Capehart, CIA hitman and leader of the Chowchilla kidnap team that included the Zodiac Killer, was inside the Texas School Book Depository (TSBD) on November 22, 1963. He was probably the blonde-haired man armed with with a rifle in the fifth floor window closest to the east side of the building. Next to him was another man wearing a brown suitcoat.

Also inside the building was Lee Harvey Oswald, whom Capehart said was not a shooter. According to former CIA accountant James B. Wilcott, testifying before the House Select Committee on Assassinations (HSCA), Oswald “was a regular employee, receiving a full-time salary for agent work for doing CIA operational work.” A memorandum by Warren Commission general counsel J. Lee Rankin said that Oswald’s CIA payroll number was 110669. In the last six weeks of his life, Oswald worked as an order filler for the Texas School Book Depository (TSBD), where his immediate supervisor, William Shelley, was also an operative for the CIA.

With three CIA agents on the same premises, a careful scrutiny of the company they worked for is needed to understand what happened the day President Kennedy was killed.
