On February 14, 1969, George de Mohrenschildt sat down with his wife Jeanne and Dutch journalist Willem Oltmans to record the draft manuscript for his planned book about Lee Harvey Oswald. Nine tapes were recorded over two days and the complete set are now available for download for the first time.
Eight years later, as de Mohrenschildt was to be called before the House Select Committee on Assassinations, Oltmans tried to use these tapes to implicate his friend George in Kennedy's murder. Within days, de Mohrenschildt was found dead with a gunshot wound to the head in an apparent suicide. These recordings formed the basis for the unpublished manuscript I am a Patsy! found in his possessions after his death and set the record straight on many of the myths around his relationship with Oswald.
