Mickey Carroll, Journalist Who Witnessed Oswald Shooting, Dies of Cancer at 86

By Kenneth Lovett

Maurice (Mickey) Carroll, a longtime journalist who was at the scene in Dallas when assassin Lee Harvey Oswald was killed, died Wednesday after a battle with colon cancer. He was 86.

The jovial Carroll spent the past two decades as the spokesman for the Quinnipiac University poll, often providing insights into the results to mainly New York and New Jersey reporters.

He is also the father of New Jersey Assemblyman Michael Carroll.

“Saddened by the passing of Mickey Carroll,” Gov. Cuomo said in a tweet. “He was a gentleman who cared deeply about the truth and about New York. He will be missed.”
