Ochus Campbell said he saw Oswald "in a small storage room on the ground floor" as he rushed into the building
FROM THE PRAYER MAN AUTHOR/ WEBSITE:
"In the book, I quoted from an article in the November 23, 1963 issue of the New York Herald Tribune where Ochus Campbell said he saw Oswald "in a small storage room on the ground floor" as he rushed into the building. Since I never actually saw a copy of the article—I just relied on reliable sources—I purchased a copy of the original newspaper and scanned the article below.
There's much research ...that suggests memory degrades over time and becomes less dependable. Some investigators state the rate of eyewitness memory decline is swift, dropping off sharply before leveling off the second day at a reduced rate of accuracy. And eyewitness memory becomes increasingly susceptible to contamination as time passes.
Again, this is a first day statement (written on November 22 and published the next day) that shows along with other first day statements that Oswald was on the FIRST FLOOR (by the entrance) when the police officer and his management entered the TSBD building.
First day statements by eyewitnesses are better than statements made later."
