When Marina visited Lee in jail, she knew he was guilty. Marina could see it in his eyes and Lee wasn't his usual demanding himself, even saying he was being treated alright.

This sentence is related to Lee Harvey Oswald's behaviour after his arrest. I am not able to understand the bold part of the sentence. Does it stem from it that LHO confessed his guilt?

    The bolded section appears to contain a typo. It should read "was not his usual demanding self". – Tᴚoɯɐuo Feb 15 '15 at 1:42

Lee wasn't his usual demanding (him)self, even saying he was being treated alright.

This means his usual demanding self would not say he was being treated alright. It was another clue for Marina.

As used here, even is sense 13a:

(used as an intensive or emphatic particle meaning:)
13a) though it may seem improbable; moreover; indeed; fully ⇒ "even unto death; even a fool could understand"

She knew he was guilty, but there is nothing said about anyone else knowing, nor do we know of any legal point or confession.
