Before he was shot in the head, Warren Reynolds told the FBI that he was "of the opinion" that the man he saw was Oswald.

Here’s the part Bill conveniently left out:

“however, he would hesitate to definitely identify OSWALD as the individual.”

Certainly Buell could have forgotten he had seen Lee for a brief moment in his one time answer on an affidavit.
I was referring to his consistency regarding the bag he saw. I'm not aware of that story changing in 60 years.

 :D


Buell Frazier didn’t say a word about supposedly seeing LHO on Houston Street after the assassination until he wrote a book fifty something years later and was trying to sell it. Yes, he has been consistent regarding the size of the bag. But that is not the same as being correct.

 Thumb1:

The FBI just couldn't get Mr. Reynolds to make a positive identification of Mr. Oswald as the individual.

Two days later, Mr. Reynolds was shot in the head.

Thereafter, Mr. Reynolds was miraculously able to make a positive identification of Mr. Oswald as the individual.

Though he did, in fairness, try to hedge it a little:

Mr. LIEBELER. You later identified that man as Lee Harvey Oswald?
Mr.REYNOLDS. In my mind.
Mr. LIEBELER. Your mind, that is what I mean.
Mr.REYNOLDS. Yes.
Mr. LIEBELER. When you saw his picture in the newspaper and on television? Is that right?
Mr.REYNOLDS. Yes; unless you have somebody that looks an awful lot like him there.

Are we talking about stories that morph or minor details changed, that don't really matter?

Mr. LIEBELER. And you never saw Oswald continue on down the street--on down Jefferson or go in the Texas Theatre, and you never told the police that he had gone in that direction, did you?
Mr.REYNOLDS. I told the police he was going in that direction.
Mr. LIEBELER. He was going--you told the police he went into the parking lot, or what did you tell him?
Mr.REYNOLDS. That he was going west. I told them that he was going west, and I had assumed that he just cut through the parking lot and kept going the general direction he was going in.


As Mr. Dale Myers has shown, Mr. Reynolds is not being wholly truthful here: what he actually told the police was that he had seen the man go into the second-hand furniture store

Going from didn’t see him after 11:00 am to saw him walking up the street after the assassination is a major morph.

That’s false. His first public telling of the story of seeing Oswald on Houston street (that I’m aware of) was in an interview with Gary Mack in 2002. “Steering Truth” was published in 2021.

That's not right, Charles. As John Iacoletti has mentioned above, Buell didn't wait quite 50+ years to start telling his "I saw LHO on Houston St." story. AFAIK, it was the interview below with Gary Mack in 2002 in which that particular addition to Buell's story first surfaced:

Buell then, in later interviews (and in his book), started "adding" more things to his story (see link below):
