Police Recover JFK Assassination Artifacts In Drug Raid

POSTED: 8:38 am EST December 17, 2004

DALLAS -- A drug raid on a Dallas apartment unexpectedly turned up a stash of artifacts relating to the assassination of President John F. Kennedy.

Among the finds: a police card bearing Jack Ruby's nine fingerprints (he lost a finger in a fight); photos of Ruby shooting alleged assassin Lee Harvey Oswald; what appears to be a drawing of a map containing important assassination-related locations and a photo inventory of Oswald's belongings.

Police said the items appear to be authentic and apparently were taken from police archives several decades ago. They are to be included in a new police headquarters museum.

The items were found in Michael Roppolo's apartment during a drug raid in March 2003. He said he got them from a relative who used to work for the police department.

Officials also found autopsy photos of Bonnie and Clyde.
