Hal Verb on Raymond Broshears

Here is an excerpt of a January 10, 1994 letter that researcher Hal Verb wrote to Harold Weisberg:

You can read Hal Verb's article on Raymond Broshears for the Berkeley Barb here. He did not then describe Broshears as "unreliable."

Summers' article, probably finished before his phone call with Verb, discussed Broshears:

Of course, there was no relationship between Eladio del Valle and David Ferrie.

Broshears was almost certainly not David Ferrie's roommate, as indicated by Hal Verb above, and by Stephen Roy as well. Broshears also clamed that he slept with Lee Harvey Oswald; that Kerry Thornley was gay; and that Thornley's body was used in the backyard photographs. Oh, and at a seance Broshears claimed that he channeled Lee Harvey Oswald.

At some point, Summers realized that Broshears was a fabulist and his books do not mention him.

For the life of me, I cannot explain why other conspiracy theorists, like James DiEugenio, accept Broshears' tendentious allegations.
