JFK assassination on 1963 at Dealey Plaza is one of the most remembered incidents in American History. While the world knows that Lee Harvey Oswald shot the beloved president, sources reveal that he did not act alone.
US President John F Kennedy was assassinated at Dealey Plaza on November 22, 1963. He was in an open-top convertible with his wife Jacquelin, Texas Governor John Connally and his wife. The president was shot during a ten-mile motorcade through downtown Dallas.
According to history, JFK assassination took place exactly at 12:30 where he was shot three times as the motorcade passed by Texas School Book Depository Building. Both the governor and president Kennedy were injured, but only JFK’s was fatal.
30 minutes later, the 35th President of the United States was pronounced dead at Dallas’ Parkland Hospital at 46 years of age.
JFK Assassination Conspiracy Theories
Then FBI director J. Edgar Hoover announced that the assassination was made by Lee Harvey Oswald alone. However, it is believed that this was simply to calm public unrest.
It was said that Hoover told White House aide Walter Jenkins that, “The thing I am most concerned about and so is (Assistant Attorney General) Mr. Katzenbach is having something issued so we can convince the public that Oswald is the real assassin.”
Following that, he instructed his aide Clyde Tolson to “prepare a memorandum to the attorney general setting out the evidence that Oswald was responsible for the shooting that killed the president.”
Despite being rubber stamped by the Warren Commission, some are not convinced by this conclusion. Both authors Gerald Posner in his book Case Closed and Vincent Bugliosi’s Reclaiming History provided evidence after evidence to support claims of a fallacious conviction.
Dorothy Mae Kilgallen on The Truth
Most notable, however, was Dorothy Mae Kilgallen’s 18-month JFK assassination investigation. Kilgallen is arguably the most influential reporter during the 50’s to the 60’s. She was even labeled by Nobel winner, Ernest Hemingway as “the greatest female writer in the world.”
Unfortunately, the journalist was not able to finish her report. On November 8, 1965, Kilgallen mysteriously died prior to completing her book on the JFK assassination for Random House. In addition to this, her investigation files also disappeared.
Her reports linking Jack Ruby has been dismissed and taken for granted. In her column DA to Link Ruby and Oswald was made to disappear along with her.
“The case is closed, is it? Well, I’d like to know how, in a big, smart town like Dallas, a man like Jack Ruby — owner of a strip tease honky tonk — can stroll in and out of police headquarters as if it was at a health club at a time when a small army of law enforcers is keeping a “tight security guard” on Oswald. Justice is a big rug. When you pull it out from under one man, a lot of others fall, too.”
