Yes?  No?  You'd think if it was detected it would have been mentioned somewhere.

Maybe the DNA of Tippit's blood still exists on Oswald's pants? And I reckon that Oswald could have easily washed any blood from his shoes.

Also, it should be remembered that Oswald?s revolver was pretty low powered. It had been re-bored for slightly larger ammunition, but Oswald used the standard ammunition. So, a lot of the gas went around the bullet and the bullet had a slower than typical speed for a handgun bullet.

As I recall, one bullet barely penetrated the skin and travelled around Tippit?s body, not straight across.

Would such bullet produce less back-splash? I don?t know. But it sounds possible.

And do we know how close Oswald was when he fired the final shot?



Maybe that is why he went into the shoe store.

That must be why Tippit's shooter was unaccounted for for 15-20 minutes after the shooting.  He went to Markham's washateria to wash his shoes.

Depends on whether you believe that Jack Tatum was actually there or not.

Policeman Tippit was likely killed  by an Oswald lookalike to conclude the framing of LHO.  They now would have a reason to look for him and shoot him on sight. He was a cop killer.   It was hoped that the police would take revenge and kill him on sight rather than arrest him.   That would make getting rid of the patsy and framed Oswald much easier than having to send Jack Ruby into make sure his side of the story never came out.  Does this man's youtube video lend any credibility to this argument?  It sure seems plausible.

When did he have the opportunity of washing  his shoes, John?

In the Texas Theater, The DPD police car or in DPD headquarters?

Yes, killing the president wasn't enough that day.  They needed Oswald to kill someone else before the police really looked for him.  And shoot him on sight?  I guess they screwed that one up too since they arrested Oswald and freely allowed him to talk to the press.  Whew.  That is far out.  Imagine how many people would have to be involved in arranging an Oswald "double", a police officer to murder, getting the "real" Oswald into that same area so that he could be arrested/shot, getting the fake "Oswald" away undetected, silencing the fake Oswald for the rest of his life etc.   What a fantasy.
