From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Jesse Edward Curry (October 3, 1913 – June 22, 1980) was chief of the Dallas Police Department at the time John F. Kennedy was assassinated while traveling through a motorcade in downtown Dallas, and his alleged assassin, Lee Harvey Oswald, was gunned down by Jack Ruby while Oswald was in police custody.

As he was to recount in his testimony with the Warren Commission and with the LBJ Presidential Library, he provided security for the new president, Lyndon B. Johnson, at Parkland Memorial Hospital where Kennedy died, and aboard Air Force One when he was sworn in as president.

A videoclip readily available shows Curry reasoning: “But just in my mind and by the direction of the blood and brain from the President from one of the shots, it would just seem that it would have to be fired from the front rather than from behind.” [1] This is significant, since Lee Harvey Oswald's position during the shooting of President John F. Kennedy is, according to the Warren Commission and many others, to the rear of President Kennedy's limousine.

Curry died of a heart attack in Dallas on June 22, 1980, and was buried in Grove Hill Memorial Park.
