(Testimony of Ronald B. Fischer)

Mr. Belin.
Do you have any estimate of how far you were from that window when you saw him?
Mr. FISCHER. Uh--from the point where I was standing when I saw him in the window to him, it must have been, I would say, at least a hundred feet.
Mr. BELIN. All right. Now, did you ever tell anyone, or might you have told them, that you saw this person a minute or two before you saw the motorcade, rather than as you told us here today, 15 or 20 seconds before you first saw the motorcade?
Mr. Fischer.
Mr. BELIN. Did you ever tell anyone it was a minute or two before you saw the motorcade?
Mr. Fischer.
Well, I might have said "a minute or two" in just terms. I don't remember saying that but.
Mr. Belin.
But what is the---
Mr. Fischer.
Shortly before.
Mr. Belin.
Mr. Fischer.
Shortly before.
Mr. BELIN. Do you definitely remember that it was this 15 or 20 seconds or so before you saw the motorcade, or might it have been a minute or two before you saw the motorcade?
Mr. FISCHER. I don't think it was over a minute. It could--it was less than a minute--because, as I recall, that's what--that's the reason I turned my attention from him and I looked back down the street.
Mr. BELIN. All right. Is there anything else you can think of that bears on the assassination, or anything you saw or did or heard that you haven't related here ?
Mr. Fischer.
(Pausing before reply.) No.
Mr. Belin.
Did you say "No"?
Mr. Fischer.
No--I can't think of anything.
Mr. Belin.
Shortly before this interview began, you and I met for the first time is that correct?
Mr. Fischer.
Mr. Belin.
And we first chatted a few minutes about what you saw before

we started taking your testimony on the record?
Mr. Fischer.
Mr. Belin.
What is the fact as to whether or not I asked you to tell me your story or whether or not, instead, I asked you questions and tried to, in any way, lead you---or so forth?

Mr. FISCHER. I answered the questions as I think that I saw the events happen--as I saw the events happen. I was not quizzed on what to say or anything of that nature. I've merely related what I think that I saw.
Mr. Belin.
Is there anything that you told me of before we started taking the deposition that has not been included in this deposition--that you can think of?
Mr. Fischer.
[Pausing before reply.] No; not that I can think of.
Mr. Belin.
All right. I believe that ends the deposition. I want to thank you for your courtesy in coming here, Mr. Fischer. We appreciate your taking the time to do it. And we would also appreciate your conveying our appreciation to the Dallas County Auditor for letting you take this time off. Will you do that, please?

Mr. FISCHER Yes; and thank you.
Robert Edwin Edwards
