The Wizard found this on Denis Morrissette's JFK Investigators site: 

11:00 PM: Henry Wade makes it through the mob of reporters, and meets with Alexander, FBI agent Bookhout, and Captain Fritz in the Homicide Bureau.

That's in reference to Friday evening, right before the Midnight Press Conference. So, Bookhout was there. And yet, Bookhout tacitly denied it, claiming that after seeing Oswald in the late afternoon at the lineup, he did not see him again until Saturday morning. 

Mr. STERN - When the lineup was concluded, what happened next, as far as you were concerned? 
Mr. BOOKHOUT - I returned to the homicide and robbery bureau. 
Mr. STERN - Was Oswald brought back there, or taken elsewhere? 
Mr. BOOKHOUT - I don't recall specifically whether he was brought back to the homicide and robbery bureau, or placed in jail, but I do know that I didn't interview him any more that day. 
Mr. STERN - Did you have any further contact with him that day? Friday? 
Mr. STERN - When did you next see Oswald? 
Mr. BOOKHOUT - Well, it would be on the morning of November 23, 1963, in the homicide and robbery bureau.

Did you have any further contact with him on Friday? No. When did you next see him? Saturday morning.

So, this is a tacit denial of having attended the Midnight Press Conference, but we have it in black and white that he did, and we have two images of him there, one found by the Wizard and the other by Amy Joyce. Did Bookhout deny it precisely because he feared that images of himself might be found? 

But, getting back to Denis Morrissette's site, he admits that the only known images of Bookhout are the yearbook images, and he featured these:

So, those are 3 yearbook images of James Bookhout, from 1935 to 1937.  But then, Denis asks whether this could be Bookhout?

Why would he even think that? How does that gaunt geezer look anything like the young James Bookhout?

What reason is there to speculate that that could be Bookhout? Based on what? It makes no more sense to think that he is Bookhout than to think that this guy is Bookhout:

Denis Morrissette did not provide any explanation for his associating that guy with Bookhout. It is so far-fetched, I am publicly calling on him to take it down. Just tell the truth, that the yearbook images of Bookhout are the only official photos of him, and officially, there are NO images of him from the JFK assassination. Of course, anyone who wants to see our collection of images of James Bookhout from the JFK assassination can go here:
