TOPEKA, Kansas -- The homicide detective who was escorting Lee Harvey Oswald when he was shot paid a visit to Topeka Tuesday.
Detective Jack Leavelle spoke to a large crowd at Washburn University.
Leavelle was handcuffed to Oswald when Oswald was shot and killed by Jack Ruby on November 24, 1963.
The retired detective gave the Washburn audience a timeline of what happened from the moment President John F. Kennedy was killed to the death of Oswald, Kennedy's accused killer.
Leavelle says he saw a different side of Oswald.
"Well, if you had met him under different circumstances, you would have thought he was a nice individual, 'cause he was very polite and respectful to me and answered my questions," said Leavelle. "He just wasn't provokeable. My heart would have been jumping up and down if I had been there facing police and knowing that I had just killed two people. But he denied it and said, 'I didn't shoot anybody.'"
Leavelle says even with all the conspiracy theories that exist about the assassination of President Kennedy, he still thinks Oswald acted alone.
