(Newser) – Dallas County officials have uncovered a batch of JFK assassination materials, including a transcript between Jack Ruby and Lee Harvey Oswald that one expert laughed off as a likely fake. Other items include correspondence, records of the Ruby trial, and a gun holster, the Dallas Morning News reports.

The Ruby/Oswald transcript is probably dialogue for an unmade movie, a county district attorney source said. In the document, the men talk of helping the Mafia dispose of Robert Kennedy by killing JFK. The DA's office plans to give a press conference on the find tomorrow and donate it to a public entity. "It's interesting, and it's not ours," Dallas County District Attorney Craig Watkins said. "It's the public's."
