Request for Assistance from Midland County
District Attorney's Office
On December 30, 1987, Inv. J. D. Luckie, Midland County District
Attorney's Office contacted the Intelligence Division for information
on a former officer, Roscoe Anthony White. Inv. Luckie stated their
office had been contacted by White's son, Ricky Don White, who stated
he had found a diary, pictures and $200,000 in cash which his dad
had left to him and his brother. Mr. White told Inv. Luckie that
there was a possibility that his dad had been involved in the Kennedy
assasination. Mr. White alledged that his father had known Lee Harvey
Oswald and had been involved with an unknown woman who worked at
