Lee Harvey Oswald Shot and Killed

This event was wierd (conspiratorial?). I missed the actual event on TV, but I did see the re-broadcasts.

Listen to the late breaking news of Oswald's murder.

Lee Harvey Oswald was the accused assassin of United States President John F. Kennedy (1961-1963) in Dallas, Texas. Oswald was arrested after the assassination on November 22, 1963, but was killed before standing trial.

Oswald was born in New Orleans, Louisiana, two months after the death of his father. As a child, Oswald was often in trouble and, according to a psychiatrist, was emotionally disturbed. Oswald dropped out of school at the age of 17 and joined the United States Marine Corps. In 1959 he was discharged from the Marines at his request. He then defected to the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics, but was denied citizenship there. Oswald returned to the United States in 1962 with his Soviet-born wife, Marina, and their daughter. The Oswalds moved to Fort Worth, Texas, in June 1962. In October of that year, Oswald took a job at the Texas School Book Depository in Dallas. On November 22, 1963, a gunman from the sixth floor of this building fired three shots into President Kennedy's motorcade, killing Kennedy and injuring Texas Governor John B. Connally. Oswald was arrested at a movie theater just over an hour later. Oswald was also accused of killing police officer J. D. Tippit, who had been shot shortly after the president's assassination. On November 24, as police were moving him from the city jail to the county jail before a national television audience, Oswald was fatally shot by Jack Ruby while standing in a crowd of police officers and reporters. Ruby, a Dallas nightclub owner, claimed to be distraught over the president's assassination.

A special presidential commission, headed by Chief Justice Earl Warren, was established to investigate the Kennedy assassination. Despite numerous conspiracy theories, the commission concluded in 1964 in the Warren Report that Oswald had acted alone. In 1979 a committee from the U.S. House of Representatives acknowledged the likelihood of a conspiracy and reported that a second assassin might have been involved. The assassination continues to be the subject of much speculation.
