Following from JFK and the Unspeakable: Why He Died and Why It Matters James Douglass
George de Mohrenschildt was called to testify before the HSCA - he was murdered before he could testify (officially a suicide, grand jury listened to a tape that included the gunshot, but jury commented hearing a house alarm sound just moments before the gunshot was heard, which signified the presence of an intruder in the house)
James W. Douglass's "JFK and the Unspeakable" may be the most error-laden CT book since Carl Oglesby's 1991 gem "Who Killed JFK? (The Real Story Series)."
The "alarm system" beeped when a door or window opened. The "beep" before the shot was Miss Romanic, the cook, going out in the backyard for a break. The gunshot was 23 seconds later. Five minutes later, the "beep" goes again, this time Mrs. Viisola, in the kitchen, went out the back door to take out garbage. Mrs. Viisola was Mrs. de Mohrenschildt's maid, who had set up the audio tape to record a soap for her.
Neither Romanic, Viisola or Coley Wimbley, the gardener in the backyard, heard the shot. George de Mohrenschildt had an history of mental illness.
I'm somewhat confused about the LN view of Oswald. Some seem to suggest that the only reason JFK was shot by him is because the Pres just happened to drive by. Just bad luck for JFK that Oswald didn't get a job elsewhere.
That's the characterization from CTs as to how conspirators would have wanted Oswald's set-up to be interpreted.
The LN view is more complicated, involving more than happenstance and luck. For example, I see a progression in Oswald's boldness and self-importance by the increased statushood of his potential victims: Gen. Walker, then former VP Nixon and finally the President.
Also, Oswald lived in a city which liked guns and where newspapers were printing some nasty critical things about Kennedy.
This leads us to the Hunts being involved and one of them living outside the States for awhile after the assassination. In fact, one early line of suspicion of a conspiracy centered on it being well-placed oil barons from Dallas. A bit of this got into the movie "Executive Action".
