(Testimony of C. T. Walker)

Mr. Belin.
Let me ask you, did you have anything to do on November 22, or anything more to do on November 22, with either the Tippit shooting or investigation or apprehension of Oswald or the assassination of the President's investigation?
Mr. Walker.
No. I stayed down in Captain Westbrook's office for a while Until I got off.
Mr. Belin.
How about November 23, did you have anything to do that day?
Mr. Walker.
That would have been Saturday.
Mr. Belin.
Or did you work on Saturday?
Mr. Walker.
Yes, I worked on Saturday. I didn't follow up on any investigation of any kind.
Mr. Belin.
Were you going back to accident investigation?
Mr. Walker.
Yes, I went back to the accident investigation.
Mr. Belin.
You didn't have anything to do with anything connected with the assassination after November 22?
Mr. Walker.
No.
Mr. Belin.
Is there anything that we haven't covered here that you can think of at this time, Officer Walker?
Mr. Walker.
Not that I can think of. It's been a long time, and I just don't recall. I think there was more conversation with Oswald, but I can't recall all of it. I just remember what I considered the high points of it.
Mr. Belin.
Did he ever ask for a lawyer in your presence?
Mr. Walker.
I don't recall. I think he said----I know he was repeating, "I know my. rights." I don't recall him actually asking for a lawyer.
Mr. Belin.
Did he say where he got the gun?
Mr. Walker.
No, he didn't say where he got the gun.
Mr. Belin.
Did he admit that it was his gun?
Mr. Walker.
Never did ask him actually whether it was his gun. He said he knew he was carrying a gun and he wasn't supposed to, so I assumed it was his gun.
Mr. Belin.
Well, we certainly appreciate your taking the time to come down here to testify. before us, and we want to thank you very much for your cooperation.
Mr. Walker.
Okay. I know you've got a problem here.
Mr. Belin.
Have I asked you whether or not you care to read the deposition? I don't believe I have. You have an opportunity here to either read the deposition and then sign it, or else waive the signing of it and have the court reporter, Helen Laidrich, send it directly to us in Washington?
Mr. Walker.
I will go ahead and sign it.
Mr. Belin.
All right, Miss Laidrich will get in touch with you at the Dallas Police Department, I assume.
Mr. Walker.
Yes. Do you want me to sign it now?
Mr. Belin.
I am talking about when she gets it typed up. Do you want to read it or have her send it to us directly?
Mr. Walker.
Do I have to come down here to read it here?
Mr. Belin.
Yes, you have to come down and read it here.
Mr. Walker.
I will come down and read it and sign it.
Mr. Belin.
All right, fine. Thank you, sir.
