Many witnesses who had knowledge of the events prior to, during and after the assassination of President John F. Kennedy have met mysterious and untimely deaths.
Dorothy Kilgallen, who claimed to have information, that would break the Kennedy assassination wide open would be found dead of an apparent drug overdose. She had voluminous notes from her jailhouse interviews with Jack Ruby. As is mentioned in the article linked to below she had given her notes to a friend for safekeeping, but that friend was also found dead two days after the death of Kilgallen.
Those apologists who think Lee Harvey Oswald acted alone debunk the theory that these deaths were mysterious. However, to my way of thinking it is preposterous to believe this many deaths of witnesses were a mere coincidence and had nothing to do with them knowing too much.
Personally, it is not beyond the realm of possibility, that these witnesses were killed methodically, to prevent them from writing books or talking to the media about the Kennedy assassination.
Richard Belzer the standup comedian and actor who appeared in Law and Order has co-authored a book with David Wayne has written a book called Hit List: An In-Depth Investigation into the Mysterious Deaths of Witnesses to the JFK Assassination, which delves into the situation of many of the victims of the mysterious deaths.
Spartacus Educational also lists some of the mysterious deaths in this article.
I still think there is a smoking gun out there somewhere, that will someday solve the fifty year mystery, as to whether the President Kennedy assassination was a conspiracy or if it was like the Warren Commission reported that Lee Harvey Oswald acted alone.
It is mind-boggling how many conspiracy theories have been espoused in the thousands of books, that have been written about the subject.
Books, television documentaries and movies will remind us again of the various conspiracy theories. My only hope is that the media will present a objective view of the JFK assassination and not pursue any personal agendas. Nobody has convinced me yet one way or the other, as to what actually happened that day in November fifty years ago.
It is time for the government to release all information relevant to the JFK assassination, even though some information may have been destroyed. There still should be some information, that will shed more light on the second death of a United States president in the 20th century.
