New Trove Opened in Kennedy Killing

New Trove Opened in Kennedy Killing

By LESLIE EATON [New York Times]

DALLAS [Texas] -- The Kennedy assassination -- a defining moment in
American history and a never-ending topic of debate among conspiracy
theorists -- re-entered the spotlight for a moment Monday [February 18,
2008], after the Dallas district attorney unveiled the contents of a
safe that had been secret for more than 40 years.

Inside were clothing worn by Lee Harvey Oswald; a small, tooled
leather holster belonging to his killer, Jack Ruby; and piles of
typed, old crackling documents. But nothing that was likely to settle
the longstanding dispute over President John F. Kennedy's death.

Perhaps the most intriguing item was what purports to be a transcript
of a conversation Ruby had with Oswald at Ruby's Dallas nightclub, the
Carousel, in which they plot to kill Kennedy to satisfy organized
crime bosses.
Note: The transcript is most probably from Dallas attorney Carroll Jarnagin's letter to J. Edgar Hoover, from December 5, 1963. He failed a lie detector test in Dallas.
