d Hoffman, Kennedy Assassination Witness.
March 24, 2010
Ed graduated from Austin School for the Deaf in Austin.
He married the love of his life Rosie Mae. Ed worked for Texas
Instruments in Richardson for 35 years.
Hoffman had parked his car and was standing on the
roadside when the presidential limousine came by. From his
elevated position, Ed had an unobstructed view of the area to
the east, which included the railroad yard, the Texas School
Book Depository, and the parking lot on the west side of the
depository. He was able to see the entire length of the triple
underpass and the people standing on it.
Hoffman, first written about by investigative reporter
and author Jim Marrs in his book “Crossfire: The Plot That
Killed Kennedy” (1989) wrote even with his disabilities he
has proven to be a most convincing witness. Brian Edwards
and Casey Quinlan, longtime JFK assassination researchers
and friends of Ed were determined to get Ed’s experiences
in print. The authors met Hoffman in 1989 after reading
about his experiences in the Marrs book, and arranged to
interview him at his family floral business in Grand Prairie,
Texas. In 1999, the Hoffman family donated their entire JFK
assassination collection to Quinlan and Edwards, and with
those materials and their own years of research, decided to
write Ed Hoffman’s story. An earlier paper “Eyewitness” (1997)
by Hoffman and his pastor Ron Friedrich was published by
JFK Lancer and was well received by the research community
but limited in scope.) Conway then encouraged Quinlan and
Edwards in their quest to see the Hoffman story presented in
full resulting in the publication, “Behind The Fenceline.”
Ed, along with his wife Rosie, have attended many JFK
assassination conferences for adults and for students. He will
be missed.

ubrey Lee Rike, Parkland Hospital Witness,
Soldier, Police Officer. May 22, 2010
Aubrey Rike, was born in 1937 in Dallas, Texas. He
joined the US Marine Corps in 1955 at 17 years of age. Once
discharged in 1959, and back home in Dallas, Aubrey was
employed as a driver for the Ambulance Service Company.
He married Glenda in 1960, and in 1965 their son Larry was
born. In 1961 Aubrey went to work for the O’Neal Funeral
Home & Ambulance Service. While employed with O’Neal’s,
Aubrey was at Parkland Memorial Hospital when President
Kennedy was brought in after being shot by an assassin. Aubrey
was the attendant who placed the President’s body into the
casket while in Trauma Room 1. Aubrey has led a colorful life,
including driving race cars, and performing as a rodeo clown.
In 1967, Aubrey joined the Highland Park Police Department
and dedicated his life to public service as a police officer.
He gained experience both as a police officer and fire fighter
while serving with the Highland Park Police Department for
26 years. Upon retirement, Aubrey went to work for the Dallas
Aubrey Rike, 1991
County Sheriff’s Department. In total, he devoted thirty-five
years of his life to the law enforcement profession.
Aubrey was a “man’s man” with a gentle soul, one that
gave our First Lady comfort as she spent her final moments
with her husband at Parkland Hospital that dark day long ago.
Aubrey was the one that helped Mrs. Kennedy put her ring on
President Kennedy’s finger, as she was determined to do.
Aubrey was a frequent guest and speaker at JFK Lancer
conference for adults and students, interviewed numerous
times and quoted in many publications including “Best
Evidence” by David Lifton.
obert Chapman, JFK Researcher, Restaurant
owner and Artist. May 30, 2010
Robert Chapman was a close friend and research partner
for the late Mary Ferrell. Robert would tell wonderful stories
about his time with Mary, especially how when in 1977
they were sitting at a table in her home going over stacks of
documents when Robert found one from the CIA that was
about a French assassin, Jean Soutre, who had been arrested
in Dallas by the FBI and deported the same day. He slid the
paper across the table to Mary saying, “You might find this
His quick eye for details was a great talent, one he put to
use in the JFK research community where he was speaker and
host at the Lancer “November In Dallas” conferences. One
of his proudest moments was in 1997 when he introduced
Kennedy family member Kerry McCarthy to our Banquet
audience saying, “We have with us tonight, as a special
guest speaker, a very distinguished individual from a very
distinguished family. Kerry McCarthy is the first member of the
Kennedy family to come forward to an event of this nature: to
embrace our aims, our goals, our efforts and to endorse the
research and the effort that we are all doing on behalf of the
memory of a member of her family.” Kerry thanked Robert by
answering, “And if that means I have embraced the research
community, what the heck has taken the Kennedy’s so long
to do it?”
His interest in the JFK assassination research never
waned, and his relationship with Mrs. Ferrell and other
researchers continued as well. Chapman attended all of
the ASK conferences, as well as the JFK Lancer conferences
working with and assisting Mrs. Ferrell. He also spoke at
many of the conferences, or assisted the organizers in some
official capacity.
Chapman was married to the former Jamie Goree, and
they have one daughter, Amanda. He wrote fiction and was
a inveterate reader of not only JFK material, but of many
subjects far afield from that. Robert owned and ran “Molly’s”
restaurant in Memphis, Tennessee until his passing and it is
still in the family.
Robert Chapman
Robert oversaw new research being offered, particularly
regarding document releases by the ARRB in his tenure as
Editor of “Assassination Chronicles” published by JFK Lancer
and shared his finds liberally. He also spent years with writers
helping with their research, offering his knowledge and
encouraging their writing. Robert was a crucial negotiator
in the purchase of Mary Ferrell’s collection by businessman
Ollie Curme and oversaw the creation of millions of pages of
JFK assassination documents now online as the Mary Ferrell
Foundation. In 1997, Robert was awarded the JFK Lancer
“New Frontier” Award, which is “In appreciation for your
contribution of new evidence and furthering the study of the
assassination of President John F. Kennedy.”

...a similar idea or pattern to a series of events. All of these
incidents are related. There is a common thread to all this.
“The Rights of Man”-- the civil and economic rights essential to the human dignity of all men--are indeed
our goal and our first principles. This is a Platform on which I can run with enthusiasm and conviction.
But I believe the times demand new invention, innovation, imagination, decision. I am asking each of you
to be pioneers on that New Frontier. My call is to the young in heart, regardless of age--to all who respond
to the Scriptural call: “Be strong and of a good courage; be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed.”

in Canada on the nations’s top investigative show, The Fifth
Estate. The films were also seen around the world. Currently
he is planning a 26 hour film series on the 1000 days of the
JFK presidency.
G. Paul Chambers - Drawing on his fifteen years experience
as an experimental physicist for the US Navy, Chambers
demonstrates that the commonly accepted view of the
assassination is fundamentally flawed from a scientific
perspective. The physics behind lone-gunmen theories is not
only wrong, says Chambers, but frankly impossible.

Bill Simpich is a civil rights attorney and an antiwar activist in
the San Francisco Bay Area. The main areas of his law practice
are government misconduct and toxic tort violations. He also
writes for publications such as Truthout, Counterpunch and
OpedNews. Bill considers the assassination cases to be a

cold cases, he is preparing a proposed “JFK Preservation of
Evidence Act” that would be applicable in both of these areas
of the law and administered by a citizen panel similar to the
ARRB. His study of the JFK case focuses on the documentary
evidence, rather than firearms, acoustics, and other forensic
evidence. His current focus is on Mexico City and the
counterintelligence aspects of the JFK case.

A new website
celebrating the
legacy of the
JFK presidency.
The flame still
burns bright.
Fifty years ago, a young
Senator from Massachusetts
ignited a country by
challenging them to dream,
take action, and achieve
like no other world leader had before. John F.
Kennedy’s presidency defined an era. Today the
flame that Kennedy’s administration lit still burns
bright in our country and around the world.
On January 20, 2010, the John F. Kennedy
Presidential Library and Museum will officially
launch an innovative community website designed
to reflect the vibrancy and excitement of the JFK
administration itself. JFK50.org will serve as the
communication hub for the worldwide celebration
honoring President Kennedy.
* It will provide teachers, scholars, artists, and
cultural institutions around the world with a
wealth of resource material about America’s 35th
* It will host an ongoing global conversation about
the enduring ideals of PresidentKennedy and their
continued influence on the world today.
* As events occurred fifty years ago, a series of
online reenactments will use broadcast news
reports, newspaper accounts, and archival media,
combined with web 2.0 technologies to bring to
life the events of that era.
Go to www.JFK50.org today to sign up for updates,

Someone Would Have Talked: The Assassination of President John F.
Kennedy and the Conspiracy to Mislead History by Larry Hancock
Someone Would Have Talked goes beyond proving a conspiracy to murder JFK. Over 14.000 documents,
White House diaries, telephone logs, and executive tape recordings detail how the new President managed
a cover-up that changed the future of our country.
A second conspiracy designed to mislead the nation,
the world, indeed, history.
New material in almost every chapter, new
documents, new names, new leads!
The thousands of primary source materials he uses paint a
disturbing and compelling picture of the assassination of
President John F. Kennedy. This is a significant contribution to our
nation’s historiography.
Dr. Thomas L. Pearcy, Former Joint Historian U.S. Department of
State and the Central Intelligence Agency Washington, D.C.
Once again Hancock opens doors that the CIA and FBI would
prefer stay closed. By probing newly-released documents and
bringing fresh witnesses to the fore, Hancock’s tireless research
conclusively proves there is still plenty we don’t know about the
perpetration and cover-up of the Kennedy assassination.

Major Points:
• The initial investigation of President Kennedy’s assassination was hamstrung by a consistent pattern
of damage control and evidence management. Actions personally orchestrated by President Johnson
prevented a true open-ended criminal investigation of leads suggesting conspiracy in the murder.
• A body of investigative documents (FBI, CIA, NSA, HSCA, and ARRB) exist which reveal pre-assassination leaks
suggesting that President Kennedy was at risk prior to the assassination; these leaks can be traced to Miami
Florida and tied to a common network of individuals shown to have been associating with each other in 1963.
• Informant reports and private research shows that Lee Oswald was in contact with, and influenced by, this
same network of individuals he initially came into contact with in New Orleans during August of 1963.
• These individuals, including two high ranking CIA officers and one highly placed member of organized crime, can be
shown to have been associated with one another and connected with the CIA’s JM/WAVE operations in Miami in 1963.
• Cuban Exile John Martino, the common thread in the book, provided limited details about a conspiracy against
President Kennedy to a reporter who had covered his return to Miami after years of suffering in a Cuban prison.
With a wealth of new information only now available, Martino’s remarks have become increasingly credible
and provide unique insights into the conspiracy.

New Information in Foreword on the debrief of Lee Oswald.
by John Martino
Prior to his death in 1975, John Martino became the “Someone Who Talked.” from the
Prologue by Edward Martino
“I Was Castro’s Prisoner” is historically significant book that in 1963 was a media
sensation in conservative political circles. Martino’s attention was focused on his exile
companions and the elimination of Fidel Castro—any related political consequences
would have been of little concern. Martino’s attitude, aims and commitments grew from
his “I Was Castro’s Prisoner” experience. You will not find the details of what Martino
did in 1963 in “I Was Castro’s Prisoner”—what you will find, is the reason why Martino
acted as he did.

Foreword by Jim Marrs
Ed Hoffman is a most important eyewitness in the murder of President
Kennedy. He should have been embraced for coming forward but instead
was crucified by the electronic and print media. He is the only witness
who can “speak” to the fundamental events of November 22, 1963. The
conspirators were hoping that no one would see the activity behind the
picket fence, but someone did. The irony is that the only
eyewitness to their activity that afternoon has a hearing

JFK IN HISTORY: The Campaign of 1960
~ 50 Year Anniversary ~
ut I think the American people expect more from us than cries of indignation and
attack. The times are too grave, the challenge too urgent, and the stakes too high-to permit the customary passions of political debate. We are not here to curse the
darkness, but to light the candle that can guide us through that darkness to a safe and sane
future. As Winston Churchill said on taking office some twenty years ago: if we open a
quarrel between the present and the past, we shall be in danger of losing the future. Today our
concern must be with that future. For the world is changing. The old era is ending. The old
ways will not do.
