TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) _ The retired Dallas homicide detective who was handcuffed to Lee Harvey Oswald when the suspected assassin of President John F. Kennedy was killed is coming to Washburn University.

Ninety-two-year-old James Leavelle will speak about the experience during a public forum at 11 a.m. Tuesday in Washburn's Memorial Union. He'll also take questions from the audience.

Leavelle gained fame as the officer in the light-colored suit who was escorting Oswald when the accused assassin was shot to death by Jack Ruby in November 1963, two days after Kennedy was killed. A photograph of the shooting is one of the most reprinted in history.
