Multiple Oswalds?

Lee Harvey Oswald depicted on this "suitable for framing" Time Magazine cover from 1964, was a man whose short life has been a source of mystery and speculation. One fascinating idea, which appears to have some evidence to support it, is that there were two or even more "Oswalds." In the Houston Chronicle, Holly Hildebrand wrote that a secret organization such as the CIA may have recruited an Oswald look-alike to live a parallel life.

"Indeed, on various official records, ranging from Oswald's Marines examinations to his autopsy report, the suspect's height fluctuates from 5 feet 8 inches in 1956, 5 feet 11 inches in 1959 and 5 feet, 9 inches in 1963," she notes. Additionally, in the days leading up to the assassination, Oswald doubles were said to be popping up all over Dallas. In one such instance, a man identified as a "Lee Oswald" test drove a used car from a lot. However the real Oswald did not know how to drive a car.
