Who killed President John F. Kennedy?
The Dallas Police closed the case on the afternoon of November 24 1963, and it was closed again as Election Day 1964 approached by the Lyndon Johnson-appointed Warren Commission.
No trial of the alleged shooter was ever held, and no solid evidence ever introduced. As history shows, the accused assassin denied guilt, uncommon among those who kill for political or philosophical reasons, though it was admitted he had 'no motive.'
The truth about who dared to spatter the brains of a US president across a quiet side street that balmy Autumn afternoon so long ago remains elusive behind the shifting mists of history.
Kennedy made powerful enemies. Did they combine forces to do him in? Who profited most from his death? Who really runs America?
TD Conner's "The Rifles of Elm Street" evolves from his newspaper days, reporting the daily New Orleans news about the late-Sixties investigation of Crescent City District Attorney Jim Garrison into the JFK assassination and the Clay Shaw trial stemming from it, in which Shaw was acquitted.
