Who killed JFK?

    Lee Harvey Oswald.  There's ample evidence for this. 

    From modern ballistic analysis we know that Kennedy was shot with a Manlicher-Carcano rifle from an area centered on a window in the corner of the sixth floor of the Texas Schoolbook Depository, a textbook warehouse where Oswald worked.   We also know that the shots came from there because a group of employees on the fifth floor heard the shots coming from directly above them.  Oswald was last seen before the shooting on the sixth floor and was never seen anywhere else until after the shooting.  When police searched the sixth floor they found an abandoned Carcano rifle and three bullet casings behind a stack of boxes which had been arranged as a "snipers nest" to screen the window from anyone in the building.  Oswald's fingerprints were in the rifle, the bullets, and the boxes.  Two witnesses on the street saw a man matching Oswald's description standing in that window before the shots were fired.   The Carcano rifle which shot Kennedy belonged to Oswald.  He had purchased it through the mail under the name  Alec Hiddel.  When he was arrested the police found an ID with his picture and the name Alec Hiddel.  Oswald's wife Marina testified that she had seen Lee with the rifle numerous times over the the past year.  She also took the infamous photo of him posing with the rifle and a pistol.  Later on November 22nd, 1963, Oswald would use that pistol to murder Dallas Police Officer JD Tippett.  Officer Tippett had stopped Oswald, presumably because he recognized that he was the man who fled the scene of the shooting and was wanted for questioning.  It was definitely Oswald who shot Tippett as several witnesses saw him do it.  Oswald's murder of Tippett, which is in absolutely zero doubt, bolsters the idea that he was involved in the Kennedy assassination.  After all, innocent people don't shoot cops.  Also strengthening the idea that Oswald was the shooter was the fact that when he got a ride in to work that morning he had a long thin paper wrapped package with him, such as might contain a rifle.  Oswald told his ride that they were "curtain rods" for hi place.  The paper used to wrap the package was found on the sixth floor, but no curtain rods were found, nor was anything else which might have been in the package other than the rifle.  Another piece of evidence for Oswald's guilty mindset is that when he left for work that morning he left his wedding ring and a stash of cash behind.  This was unusual for Oswald.  Obviously he had a feeling that he might not return home and wanted to leave his wife with a memento and some cash. 

    So, to sum up, Oswald owned the rifle which killed Kennedy.  He brought it to work that morning.  He was seen at the site where the shots were fired immediately before the shooting.  He fled the scene immediately and murdered a cop in cold blood to try and escape.  People have been convicted of murder on a hell of a lot less. 

    All the other ideas are nonsense.  The shots didn't come from anywhere else but the corner of the sixth floor where Oswald was.  There's no evidence of anyone else involved other than Oswald.

      1. Anyone can buy a gun; 2. Why try to hide the gun after shooting, but not try to take your fingerprints from the gun ? - Even James Earl Ray wasn't that stupid. And 3) who supplied this gun data to the committee ? - Ans: the FBI.

    Believe it or not, the mafia was behind it.

      Hoover had intimate relations with Mafia "bigwigs" going so far as denying the Mafia's very existence and often shielding them from investigation

    No one knows. Oswald's shots wounded him but the shot fired from the grassy knoll that hit Kennedy in the head is the one that killed him. No one knows who that person was. Well, maybe someone knows but they haven't told anyone else.

    The only person with the means, motive and ability to "direct the investigation" was J. Edgar Hoover. ... Exact;y what "documents" did Clyde Anderson Tolson (Hoover's lover) take from the F.B.I. files after Hoover's death ?
