While hundreds of writers, conspiracists, authors and so-called experts claim a conspiracy in the assassination of JFK, one Wichita falls man remained steadfast through the years in his belief that Lee Harvey Oswald acted alone---the assassin's own brother Robert.
Robert Edward Lee Oswald died this week and was given a private memorial service. He went to his grave maintaining his brother planned and carried out the assassination by himself.
Oswald was one of the first to talk at length with his brother, late that night on November 22, 1963, after he heard the devastating news on the radio and rushed to Dallas. But he said he could get nothing out of his brother to indicate if, or why he killed the President.
Robert Oswald, in the few interviews he gave through the years, including one rare local interview in the KFDX studios, maintained it was just circumstance and coincidence. That his brother was in the right place and the right time, and he decided to carry out the crime because of his lifelong craving for attention.
A few years ago, Robert Oswald filed a lawsuit after a funeral home tried to auction off his brother's original casket, which had been replaced after an exhumation to end conspiracies over who was in the grave.
Oswald presented the original receipt for the casket he bought, and won the lawsuit, getting the casket and damages.
