JFK Assassination – Charles Murret

Charles "Dutz" Murret

Murret was the uncle of Lee Harvey Oswald, born in New Orleans on March 2, 1901. Oswald's mother,  Marguerite Oswald , was the sister of Murret's wife, Lillian.

Lee Oswald spent time with his uncle and aunt as he grew up in New Orleans. Although Murret did not work directly under Carlos Marcello, he was connected through a chain of command and after Oswald's arrest in 1963, he called Murret, who in turn helped his nephew out via Marcello's lawyer.

Charles Murret died on October 12, 1964, after a 'brief illness'.
