The Void

Dealey Plaza, Dallas, TX. November 22, 1963.

Dallas Sheriff Roger Craig broke ranks at the sound of gunfire and ran to Dealey Plaza as the Leader of the Free World was assassinated.

Sheriff Craig reported to the Warren Commission: “I heard a shrill whistle coming from the north side of Elm Street. I turned and saw a white male in his twenties running down the grassy knoll from the direction of the Texas School Book Depository Building. A light green Rambler station wagon was coming slowly west on Elm Street. The driver of the station wagon was a husky looking Latin, with dark wavy hair, wearing a tan windbreaker type jacket. He was looking up at the man running toward him. He pulled over to the north curb and picked up the man coming down the hill. I tried to cross Elm Street to stop them and find out who they were. The traffic was too heavy and I was unable to reach them.

After the Oswald arrest, Sheriff Craig was brought to Captain Fritz’s office to identify Oswald.

Captain Fritz said: “What’s this about a station wagon?”

The suspect interrupted, “- That station wagon belongs to Mrs. Paine. Don’t try to tie her into this. She had nothing to do with it.” He continued, “I told you people I did” adding dejectedly, “everybody will know who I am now.”

Over 55 years later we still don’t know.

After multiple attempts on his life, Roger Craig was found dead in his father’s house on May 15, 1975. His death was an apparent suicide.
