Sometimes a story just makes you put down the newspaper, take a deep breath, and scream. The Warren Commission’s man-you-love-to-hate, JFK assassin, and subject of all manner of conspiracy theories, Lee Harvey Oswald, is the gift that keeps on re-gifting. A LA auction house has the badly damaged pine box, sans body of course, on the block. The coffin was exhumed by Oswald’s widow, Marina, to test yet another conspiracy theory that a body double was actually in the box and not the man with the magic bullet. No dice. The body was that of Oswald.
“There’s just a lot of interest in Kennedy and anything to do with his assassination,” said Laura Yntema, auction manager at Santa Monica, California-based Nate D. Sanders. The auction also includes a blood-stained piece of the leather seat Kennedy was sitting on when he was killed.
Bidding starts at $1000.00.
