Roger D Craig gave significant testimony to David Belin that Craig later claimed was altered in critical ways.
Craig maintained he saw a person who he later identified at the DPD as Oswald fleeing the TSBD after the shooting and being picked up in a green Nash Rambler station wagon with non Texas coloured license plates. In the DPD Oswald's reaction when confronted with Craig was to state the station wagon was Ruth Paine's before Nash Rambler or station wagon was even mentioned. The driver was a latin American looking man with a tan jacket. When picked up Oswald would have been 6 blocks west away on Elm from Beckley Avenue.
Was the Paine's Nash Rambler registered outside Texas say for example Maryland since a green Rambler was seen with Maryland plates the same morning in the area. Green Nash Ramblers were purchased by the government at that time.
Craig claims his testimony to Belin was altered in the following ways:
- Changed from green Nash Rambler to white
- Driver of Rambler wearing a tan jacket changed to white
- License plates of Rambler were NOT the same colour as Texas plates changed to the SAME colour as Texas plates.
- Got a good look at the Rambler driver to didn't get a good look at the driver.
- Oswald said everybody will know who I am now changed to NOW everybody will know who I am
Craig had two attempts on his life including a motor accident and being shot together with a lot of scary incidents and threats, He finally supposedly committed suicide by shooting himself in the chest!!

The quickest and surest way to nullify a witness is to make them assume room temperature...as they did with Lee Oswald.
But when that isn't practical then the next best thing is to discredit them by making them look like a lunatic....or at last very confused.....
Hoovers agents were experts at both.......
I've always thought that Roger Craig seems to have played right into their hands by swearing that the rifle he saw was a mauser.
But now I'm having second thoughts..... Not that the rifle was not a mauser ( I'm sure it it was a carcano) but somewhere Roger Craig got the ida that it was a mauser.....and he said he saw that stamped "RIGHT ON THE BARREL" . Seymour Weitzman also thought that the rifle was a mauser........but neither Craig nor Weitzman got a good look at the carcano before Lt. Day carried it from the TSBD that afternoon.
I've always thought that the stock on the rifle in the official in situ photo looks like a mauser stock. I'm now 100% sure that the in situ photo is a fake. It was created at night and the Carcano was in Washington when the fake photo was created.....Thus they used a mauser to create the fake photo, and somehow Craig saw hat Mauser and assumed that it was the same rifle that he had seen beneath the boxes of books the afternoon.
