There was Rose Cheramie, a whore.
She said she was a dope runner
for Jack Ruby.

And that Ruby knew Oswald for years.
Can we talk to her?
She's dead too.

Hit and run.
Why don't we go to the horse's mouth?
Jack Ruby's been in a Dallas jail cell
for three years. Maybe he'll crack.

Can't. If I go to him our investigation
will hit the front pages.

Ill blow up in our face.
Susie, what did you find on Oswald?

Negative on his tax records. Classified.
First time a DA can't get a tax record.
I asked for the CIA files on Oswald
that were part of the Warren Report.

About 1,200 documents.
Can't get one of them.

All classified as secret on the grounds
of national security.

Gave me his grammar school records.
Is a study of his pubic hairs.

Lonely kid, no father.
Joins the Marines at 17.
Learns Russian. Acts overtly Marxist.
But he's stationed at a top-secret air base
in Japan...

...where U-2 spy flights
over Russia originate.

He's discharged...
...supposedly because his mother's sick.
Stays home three days.

Then, with a $1,500 ticket from
a $203 bank account, he goes to Moscow.

Mr. Oswald, do you understand...
...the action you are about to take?
Yes, I do, sir.

I wish to renounce my citizenship...
...and become a Soviet citizen.
I'll give them all the information
I have on the Marines.

He disappears for six weeks,
presumably with the KGB.

He's taken to a radio factory in Minsk...
...where he lives as high on the hog
as he ever has.

He's given 5,000 rubles,
a roomy apartment with a balcony.

Has affairs with local girls.
