Ochus Virgil Campbell, vice-president of the Texas School Book Depository Building stated a few things that were published in two newspapers on Nov 23rd 1963 none which were repeated at any given time after!

The New York Herald Tribune 11/23/63:
Shortly after the shooting we raced back into the building. We had been outside watching the parade. We saw him (Oswald) in a small storage room on the ground floor. Then we noticed he was gone.” Mr Campbell added: “Of course he and the others were on their lunch hour but he did not have permission to leave the building and we haven’t seen him since.”

The Dallas Morning News 11/23/63:
O.V. Campbell Vice-President of the firm said he and Truly super intendent of the firm, were standing in front of the building at 411 Elm when the shooting started. Campbell said he ran toward a grassy knoll, west of the building where he thought a sniper had hidden. He said Truly and an officer had run into the building.

The mention of him going to the knoll is not repeated anywhere else. In his FBI statements he says that he went straight back into the TSBD.

In the F.B.I. report from Nov. 24th Campbell states that he was not personally acquainted with Oswald and had never seen him. Campbell repeats this in the statement of March 19th 1964 (the infamous CE 1381 report).

On the 2nd page of his Nov 26th statement to the F.B.I. he backs up the Reid story. Just like Pauline Sanders did.

Ochus Campbell was not called up by the Warren Commission to testify, which is a bit strange. The guy in charge that day of the building where the alleged assassin fired from did not have to give testimony……
