Richard Case Nagell is a former military officer who, according to Dick Russell's biography of him, claimed to have had foreknowledge of the John F. Kennedy assassination, and also to have gotten himself arrested in a bank shooting weeks before the assassination to avoid becoming a patsy.[1] Nagell met with New Orleans District Attorney Jim Garrison, who at the time was investigating Clay Shaw's possible complicity in the assassination.[2]

His claims are highly controversial, and critics point to frequent changes in his account.[3]

Nagell died from heart disease in on November 1, 1995.[4] He was 65 years old at the time of his death.
