“1964 INTERVIEW WITH KAREN CARLIN (AN EMPLOYEE OF JACK RUBY’S)”
From David Von Pein
Perhaps one of the most famous nightclub employees of all time. I don’t know much about Karen Carlin and maybe that is because that there isn’t much to know about her, but what I get is that she was an attractive woman who worked for Jack Ruby at Jack Ruby’s nightclub, The Carousel in Dallas. And worked there simply because she needed the money. But that she’s not someone who has much if any information about Jack Ruby other than Ruby might have shot Lee Harvey Oswald the assassin of President John F. Kennedy. She simply worked for the man and only worked there because she needed the money. Because her husband had a hard time holding a good job.
You have to know that this whole story had to do with the assassination of an American President, John F. Kennedy who was President of the United States. This was so very new to most people in the country and the first presidential assassination that was covered in the electronic age with network TV and network news. And any person that might of had some connection to someone who was a big part of this story was automatically seen as suspect, or at least as a potential suspect.
Karen Carlin, not only knew Jack Ruby the killer of Lee Oswald who assassinated the President, but she worked for him. Which meant that people automatically assumed that she must know something important about this story.
