James Andrews is an individual who claims that he was stopped by JD Tippit presumably after Tippit had stopped at Top Ten Records as Andrews was heading west on 10th Street. He claims that Tippit was agitated, that he stopped him, looked in his vehicle between the seats of the car, then took off.
Is James Andrews a Red Herring?
It's difficult to know what the significance of this event means. Was James Andrews confabulating to enhance his place in history? Did the Director insert James Andrews into the equation to randomize the movements of JD Tippit? Is James Andrews CIA? We know very little about James Andrews except for reports that he worked in the same building as Roscoe White, another man who had been implicated in the assassination by conspiracy theorists. Of course, working in the same building is not a good reason to suspect someone. It would be helpful if we had more information. Until then, I discount the story of James Andrews completely while, of course, always reserving the right to bring him back into the equation if more information is forthcoming.
