49 Years Later, Memorial for Lee Harvey Oswald's Second Victim

After 49 years, Police Officer JD Tippit is finally being remembered with a memorial on the spot where Lee Harvey Oswald killed him after assassinating JFK.

On the day of the president’s visit to Dallas, J.D. was working his usual beat in the Oak Cliff suburbs. He stopped home on a lunch break for what would be his last meal with his wife Marie. Due to the increased need for police presence, he cut his time well short of the allotted hour.

At approximately 1:15 pm, as Officer Tippit cruised down Tenth Street just past Patton Avenue, he spied a man who resembled the suspect in the president’s assassination. The description: a white male, weighing 165 pounds, five-foot-ten, in his early thirties; had been broadcast to all on-duty officers. J.D. stopped the car and had a short conversation through the passenger window. Officer Tippit exited the squad car and headed toward the front of the vehicle. According to several eyewitnesses, Lee Harvey Oswald shot him four times at point blank range, killing the thirty-nine-year-old dedicated law enforcement professional.

The sudden and heinous violence left a widowed wife and fatherless children to grieve as they tried to imagine life without their devoted J.D.—husband, father, and hero.
