Kennedy locations in Dallas and Fort Worth

September, 2013. With a rented car I visited all locations in Dallas and Fort Worth related to the crime of the century, the assassination of John F. Kennedy. I made lots of pictures; fifty of them are on this page. In 2009 I travelled to New Orleans, where Lee Harvey Oswald lived. The photos of that journey can be found here. My name is Perry Vermeulen, born Dec. 08, 1982. I wrote two books on the assassination in 2008 and 2012, both published in the Netherlands. A large Dutch article about my … [Lees meer...]

De gruwelijke moord op Mary Sherman

Vandaag 50 jaar geleden vond de geruchtmakende, gruwelijke moord op Mary Sherman plaats. Een misdaad die vrij onbekend is - u had vast nog nooit van het slachtoffer gehoord. Sherman werd op 21 juli 1964 op vreselijke wijze teruggevonden in haar appartement op 3101 St. Charles Avenue, in New Orleans. Het drama is nooit opgelost, maar er zijn onderzoekers die denken dat ze niet ver van de waarheid zijn. En de moord op John F. Kennedy heeft er volgens hen alles mee te maken. Onzin van enge … [Lees meer...]

Naar de vrouw van Kennedy’s moordenaar

“Get out of my property”, siste de 75-jarige Kenneth Porter met ingehouden woede. Hij was duidelijk niet gecharmeerd van het onaangekondigde bezoek uit Nederland. De man die in 1965 trouwde met Marina Oswald Porter, de Russische vrouw die eerder gehuwd was met de vermeende moordenaar van president John F. Kennedy, werd bijgestaan door een luid blaffende, middelgrote hond. “Van mijn terrein af, heb je het waarschuwingsbord niet gezien aan het begin van de oprit?” Er zat niets anders op. Een … [Lees meer...]

New document Oswald on SS Maasdam

I did years of research into the trip Oswald made from Minsk to Texas through my own country, the Netherlands, and on the days aboard the ship SS Maasdam, from Rotterdam to Hoboken, New Jersey. Saw photos and documents, came in contact with people who were on this ship with Lee Harvey Oswald. by PERRY VERMEULEN I always claim that no element in the whole Kennedy investigation has been treated this undervalued. The investigation on this trip in may and june 1962 was poor and minimal. I … [Lees meer...]

Oswald-related places to visit when hungry and thirsty

This september I visited New Orleans and Dallas. Walking around in these city's makes a man hungry and thirsty. This is an enumeration of places to visit when in need for a beer or a burger. All places have a relation to key players of the events in November, 1963. Did you know The Ozzie Rabbit Lodge, Lee Harvey's, Campisi's, Henry's Uptown Bar and Le Bon Temps Roule? by PERRY VERMEULEN The Ozzie Rabbit Lodge, Fort Worth Near Shannon Rose Hill Memorial Park, where Oswald was buried November … [Lees meer...]

Visiting Marina

"Get out of my property," hissed the 75-year-old Kenneth Porter with restrained anger. He was clearly not enamored of this unannounced visit from the Netherlands. The second husband of Marina Oswald Porter was assisted by a loud barking, medium-sized dog. "Get out of my property, didn't you see the warning sign at the beginning of the driveway?" The hope for a little conversation was soon gone, let alone a picture and a short, unique interview with his wife Marina. "No, you do not have to call … [Lees meer...]

Ruth Paine House Museum opens

I visited the Ruth Paine house in Iriving, Dallas, last september. It was empty inside. Well, empty... A table, some chairs and a painting were left by the last occupants. Two months after my quick visit, the house is a home again. The Ruth Paine House Museum opens to public on November 6. by PERRY VERMEULEN The home that once belonged to Ruth Paine, the woman who befriended Marina Oswald and let her live there with her two young daughters, has been restored. The 1,250-square-foot house allows … [Lees meer...]

Oswald on SS Maasdam IV

Received a mail from someone who was interested in information I shared in the period 2007-2010, on the trip Lee Harvey Oswald made from Rotterdam (the Netherlands, my country) to the United States. Oswald travelled with his wife Marina and their baby, June. They left Minsk and travelled by train through Moscow, Poland and Germany, spending a night in a boarding house (in an expensive neighbourhood!) in Rotterdam. On June 4, the SS Maasdam, a Holland America Line ship, took off, bound for … [Lees meer...]

1026 N. Beckley Avenue: visiting Pat Hall

I rang the bell of 1026 North Beckley Avenue in the afternoon of September 10, last month, while visiting Dallas. After a while a middle-aged woman looked through the glass. She wasn't feeling well, but if I wanted to wait for 20 minutes, she was willing to dress up for a short interview. Great news: off course I wanted to talk with Patricia Puckett Hall (61). After all - it was her grandmother who rented a room to Lee Harvey Oswald in the last weeks of his life. Worth the wait. by PERRY … [Lees meer...]
