Droby of Dallas arranged the meeting for the two newsmen.
Martin grinned and said: "Oh, you're looking for a conspiracy." I nodded yes and he grinned and said, "You will never find it." I asked soberly, "Never find it, or not there?
Reynolds and his family were harassed and threatened. Johnson's rooming house at the same time Lee Harvey Oswald lived there.
But upon giving the Warren Commission a firm identification of Oswald as being the Tippit murder fugitive, he said, "I don't think they are going to bother me any more." Hank Killam was a house painter who lived at Mrs. His wife, Wanda, once pushed cigarettes and drinks at Jack Ruby's club.
We will not divulge exactly what Miss Kilgallen did to obtain the interview with Ruby. Only that was not the real price Miss Kilgallen paid. Miss Kilgallen stated that she was "going to break this case wide open." She died on November 8, 1965. Like Ruby, Howard's life revolved around the police station, and it was not surprising when he and Ruby (toting his gun) showed up at the station on the evening of the assassination of President Kennedy.
Nor was it unusual when Howard arrived at the jail shortly after Ruby shot Oswald, asking to see his old friend.
Lawyer Tom Howard was observed acting strangely to his friends two days before his death.
Ruby's sister, Eva Grant, even accused Howard of leaking information to the DA. Roberts testified that while Oswald was in his room, two uniformed cops pulled up in front of the rooming house and honked twice--"Just tit tit," she said. Roberts was subjected to intensive police harassment.
Some reporters and friends of Howard's were not so certain. She testified before the Warren Commission that she saw Oswald come home around one o'clock, go to his room for three or four minutes and walk out zipping his lightweight jacket. She died on January 9, 1966 in Parkland Hospital (the hospital where President Kennedy was taken).

Police said she suffered a heart attack in her home. Warren Reynolds was minding his used car lot on East Jefferson Street in Oak Cliff in Dallas, when he heard shots two blocks away. Then he saw a man having a great difficulty tucking "a pistol or an automatic" in his belt, and running at the same time.
Warren Reynolds, the amiable used car man, was making history. But Garner had an alibi, Nancy Jane Mooney, alias Betty Mc Donald, who said Garner was in bed with her at the time he was supposed to have shot Reynolds. Within hours after her arrest, Nancy Jane was dead.
Reynolds was not questioned until two months after the event. Nancy Jane had worked at Jack Ruby's Carousel Club. Nancy Jane was picked up a week later for fighting with a girlfriend. Police reports said she hanged herself with her toreador pants.
" He added soberly, "Not there." Bill Hunter, a native of Dallas and an award winning newsman in Long Beach, was on duty and reading a book in the police station called "Public Safety Building." Two policemen going off duty came into the press room, and one policeman shot Hunter through the heart at a range officially ruled to be "no more than three feet." The policeman said he dropped his gun, and it fired as he picked it up, but the angle of the bullet caused him to change his story.
