Lane: What was in the follow-up car, if you know?
Lane: Without asking you any of the details regarding the activity that you and Mr. Sturgis and Mr. Hunt were involved in, may I ask you if some of that activity was related to the transportation of weapons?

Lane: Tell me the circumstances regarding your seeing E. Howard Hunt in Dallas in November 1963?
Lorenz: There was a prearranged meeting that E. Howard Hunt deliver us sums of money for the so-called operation that I did not know its nature.
Lane: Were you told what your role was to be?
Lorenz: Just a decoy at the time.
Lane: Did you see Mr. Hunt actually deliver money to anyone in the motel room which you were present in?
Lane: To whom did you see him deliver the money?
Lorenz: He gave an envelope of cash to Frank Fiorini.
Lane: When he gave him the envelope, was the cash visible as he had it in the envelope?
Lane: Did you have a chance to see the cash after the envelope was given to Mr. Fiorini?
Lorenz: Frank pulled out the money and flipped it and counted it and said "that is enough" and put it in his jacket.
Lane: How long did Mr. Hunt remain in the room?
Lorenz: About forty-five minutes.
Lane: Did anyone else enter the room other than you, Mr. Fiorini, Mr. Hunt, and others who may have been there before Mr. Hunt arrived?
Lane: Where did you see the person you identified as Jack Ruby?
Lorenz: After Eduardo left, a fellow came to the door and it was Jack Ruby, about an hour later, forty-five minutes to an hour later.
Lane: When you say Eduardo, who are you referring to?
Lorenz: E. Howard Hunt.
Lane: When did that meeting take place in terms of the hour; was it daytime or nighttime?
Lorenz: Early evening.
Lane: How soon after that evening meeting took place did you leave Dallas?
Lorenz: I left about two hours later; Frank took me to the airport and we went back to Miami.
Lane: Now, can you tell us in relationship to the day that President Kennedy was killed, when this meeting took place?
Lorenz: The day before.
Lane: Is it your testimony that the meeting which you just described with Mr. Hunt making the payment of money to Mr. Sturgis took place on November 21, 1963?
[Note: Marita Lorenz returned to her home in Miami that same night, but said Frank Sturgis later told her what she had missed in Dallas on Nov. 22, 1963: "We killed the president that day."]
