Abandoned cars

Motorcycle Officer Thomas Hutson:

Mr. HUTSON. And after we searched this area, I got in the squad car with Officer Ray Hawkins, who was driving, and Officer Baggett was riding in the back seat.
Mr. BELIN. Why did you get inside the squad car?
Mr. HUTSON. The clutch on my motorcycle was burned out and I couldn't get any speed and I just barely made it over there, and I didn't know whether I would be able to start and go or not.

Hutson was never asked, and didn't volunteer what he ever did with his motorcycle.


Anothr thing I don't quite understand is what C.T. Walker did with his car.

“Mr. WALKER. I went in the alley up to the back door... And there were several officers around the back of the theatre, and myself, and McDonald, and Officer Hutson went in the back door. ”

And then after Oswald was arrested...

“Mr. WALKER. There was a plain car, police car out in front. The right door was open, and Bentley went in first, and Oswald come and then I. We sat in the back seat with him.

Mr. BELIN. Let me ask you, did you have anything to do on November 22, or anything more to do on November 22, with either the Tippit shooting or investigation or apprehension of Oswald or the assassination of the President's investigation?
Mr. WALKER. No. I stayed down in Captain Westbrook's office for a while until I got off.”

Walker was not asked, and didn't volunteer what ever happened to his car.

Seems like these guys were abandoning their vehicles willy nilly.

I guess I have to amend this.
At 1:53, Gerald Hill radios in to Dispatch:

550/2 (Sgt. G.L. Hill)    223 is in the car with us. See if someone can pick up his car at the rear of the Texas Theater and take it to the station. It's got the keys in it.         
     Dispatcher    10-4.         
     Dispatcher    91.         
     91 (Ptm. W.D. Mentzel and Ptm. J.W. Courson)    91.         
     Dispatcher    Report back to the Texas Theater. Get 223's car and lock it up.         
     91    10-4.

I'm not sure how Mentzel got Walker's keys back to him, but at least his car his accounted for.
