Popular President John F. Kennedy was assassinated in 1963, and investigators have been trying to unravel the mystery of who and why ever since. Many people believed purported killer Lee Harvey Oswald did not act alone, and numerous conspiracy theories about multiple shooters and various organizations have been published over the years.
In a blockbuster development, a book about veteran filmmaker Oliver Stone reveals that JFK was actually killed by members of his own team.
Stone, the director of the film JFK, claims the information comes from a deathbed confession of a man only known as “Ron”
It seems that Ron was a member of the ex-president’s security team, and contacted Stone as he wanted to share this information before he died.
Stone was there in person as Ron explained that now that he was dying, he wanted the world to know who had actually killed John F. Kennedy.
According to Ron: “Somebody from his own team… had fired on the President”.
Ron managed to get in contact with Stone using secret messages. The two finally met just weeks before the source passed away.
Stone is obviously very knowledgeable about JFK conspiracy theories. He may be sympathetic to them but he was skeptical about Ron’s claims going into the conversation. He said it was hard for him to believe that a member of the president’s own security team had been involved.
Most people today believe that ex-US Marine Lee Harvey Oswald had shot and killed Kennedy with a rifle from the sixth floor of the Texas School Book Depository.
Of note, suspicions about the case grew as Oswald was himself murdered just two days later by an nightclub owner with connections to organized crime.
Ron used “military jargon” and he had enough facts and background to convince Stone that his assassination theory was “plausible” and “very authentic.”
Some people are questioning the veracity of the story, however, and asking why Stone would share this important information with the relatively unknown author of a new book on the subject.
“I think it was because he trusted me, and also because both the father and the son have been dead for a while,” Matt Zoller Seitz, the author of the new book on Stone, commented. “Nobody has ever heard this story. I’m the first person.”
