Right after the assassination, the LH Oswald’s premises were searched by DPD. Among other stuff, Dallas police confiscated what they said was a Minox camera on the weekend of the assassination and sent it to the FBI, but the FBI said that what they received was a Minox light meter. Conspiracists say the FBI was lying and covering up, but can’t produce any evidence other than the testimony of the Dallas cops that it was a camera rather than a light meter. If this is true, the FBI forged an elaborate paper trail of internal documents saying that they had a Minox case (not a camera) and a light meter.
Gerry Patrick Hemming discusses the provenance of Lee Harvey Oswald’s Minox spy camera. Hemming’s sources indicate that the specific Minox camera found in Oswald’s room, following the assassination of JFK, bore the same serial number as the one Hemming had given to Eduardo Perez [aka: Bayo or Eddie Bayo].
According to Hemming, Richard Billings of Life magazine, gave Minox cameras and other equipment to him for the purpose of supplying them to “various groups” who were inserting recon teams into Cuba. This was done with the proviso that Life Magazine would have first pick of the photographs coming out of Cuba.
