(Testimony of Gerald Lynn Hill)

Mr. Hill.
But I told you at that time there was remarks made, but I didn't recall hearing that. I don't remember what it was.

Perhaps your memory on that is better than mine.
Mr. Belin.
Was there anything else in specific that we discussed at that time?
Mr. Hill.
Not that I recall.
Mr. Belin.
Otherwise, that is our only conversation that we had?
Mr. Hill.
Yes, sir; it was just very general and very limited due to the stress of time.
Mr. Belin.
By the way, did you search the suspect that you brought in from the Texas Theatre?
Mr. Hill.
As to any other possible weapon?
Mr. Belin.
Yes; or ammunition?
Mr. Hill.
I did not search him, and being that he was handcuffed, and being that they were moving him out hurriedly, I don't recall anyone else searching him after he was placed under arrest.
Mr. Belin.
Is there anything else you can think of, whether I have asked it or not, that is in any way relevant to this area of inquiry pertaining to the investigation of the assassination, or the investigation of the Tippit murder?
Anything else you can think of that you would like to comment on at this time?
Mr. Hill.
Not that I can recall, sir.
Mr. Belin.
Sergeant Hill, we want to thank you very much for your splendid cooperation, and for the cooperation of the entire police department here, and you particularly.
You had to make two trips, because of the fact that the one airplane of mine was canceled.
Mr. Hill.
They were both on duty, so I don't mind.
Mr. Belin.
You have an opportunity, if you like, to read the typewritten transcript of this deposition and sign it, or else you can waive the signing and have it go directly to Washington without your reading.
Do you have any preference?
Mr. Hill.
Sir, if it would be all right, I would like to run by and sign it?
If you will just let me know when, I will be here.
Mr. Belin.
They will contact you and again we want to thank you very much.
Mr. Hill.
It is my pleasure. Anytime I can help, let me know.
