Joseph McBride The J.D. TIPPIT Incident
"He'd [JD Tippit] been expecting something. The police notified them [JD Tippit & fellow officer] Oswald was headed that way.'"
Ominous statement. How did the police know it was Oswald they should be searching for. How did the police know what route was going to take? Was Oswald being sent to his own assassination? Did Oswald kill JD Tippit?
Joseph McBride is the author of seventeen books, most recently "Into the Nightmare: My Search for the Killers of President John F. Kennedy and Officer J. D. Tippit". McBride was a volunteer worker in Kennedy’s 1960 Wisconsin presidential primary campaign and spent thirty-one years researching and writing his investigative book, which is structured as a memoir of his personal journey in understanding the case.
McBride was a film critic, reporter, and columnist for Daily Variety in Hollywood for many years. He spent six years in the 1970s playing a film critic in Orson Welles's legendary unfinished film The Other Side of the Wind. He is a professor of cinema at SAN FRANCISCO STATE UNIVERSITY.
