Everybody has seen the explosive footage of JFK being shot through the head as he and Jackie Kennedy sat in an open-air limo on Nov. 22, 1963. But what exactly happened in the minutes and hours that followed as the Dallas Police Department fanned out across the city in a desperate race to snare the killer who had trained his rifle on the motorcade?

Now, retired homicide detectives and police officers who were there break their silence.  Many of them haven’t spoken publicly in years about the tragic events — and their stories provide a collective, detailed account of the  investigation that resulted in JFK's alleged assassin being taken into custody within 88 minutes of the shooting.

Without the help of modern technology, these investigators were able to put into play some of the most brilliant police work our nation has ever seen. Yet, suspicions of a second gunman and a possible conspiracy left the department's reputation tarnished.

“Capturing Oswald” is co-produced by Kate Griendling, granddaughter of Jim Leavelle, the detective who was handcuffed to Oswald as he was shot by Dallas nightclub owner Jack Ruby.

Through the collective participation of five former Dallas lawmen essential to the manhunt, along with key eyewitnesses, experts, and journalists, “Capturing Oswald” reveals a detailed timeline of events from the first shot fired at Kennedy to the last shot fired at Oswald.

Leavelle recalls details of Oswald's first interrogation as well as his final moments while in route to the hospital after being shot. And he remembers telling his captain it was a bad idea to escort Oswald through the basement and throngs of reporters, and recalls the response: "If you're so concerned Jim, you escort him."

Paul McCaghren, a lieutenant assigned to the pre-planning team securing the president's motorcade, faults several federal agencies for withholding information about Oswald, including threats he made against the U.S.

And Elmer Boyd, one of the first detectives to search the Texas School Book Depository, recalls the initial search and one officer's brief run-in with the then-unknown suspect. In addition, you’ll see interviews with retired Dallas Morning News reporters Hugh Aynesworth and Jim Ewell, witness and shoe store manager John Brewer, retired motorcycle cop Jimmy Courson, and others.

“Capturing Oswald” explores one of most cataclysmic days in history and is a riveting hour of television you and your family won’t want to miss.

“Capturing Oswald” adds to the diverse programming featured on Newsmax TV, now carried in more than 40 million U.S. satellite and cable homes.

With compelling original shows such as "The Jesse Lee Peterson Show," "Newsmax Now," "America Talks Live," "The Wayne Allyn Root Show," "The Brett Winterble Show," "The Howie Carr Show," "The Joe Pags Show," and "The Schnitt Show," Newsmax TV has become the nation's must-watch news, lifestyle, and information channel.
