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.

Buddha and Blouise,
There’s quite the market for Saint’s body part’s I’ve been told.
I was just trying to think what Bill Gates’ friends could possibly get him for Christmas. . .
A nice little explanation of why the Warren Commission’s findings are definitive on the subject. Apparently, it was because Gerry Ford’s word was always good. 😉
hope it comes with one of those little pine tree air fresheners.
“I hope the same can be said of the coffin.”
“I would hope the same can be said of the coffin.”
One dropped word can really the meaning of a sentence.
Technically I think for them to be ghouls, some kind of meat would have to be sold as they are eaters of the dead. I guess one could use the seat leather like bouillon – kinda a cross between beef and pork.
The really sad part about that?
Someone probably would buy Oswald’s body.
Sure, they can’t sell Darth Vader’s threads, but some loon would surely buy the body. After all, Michael Jackson bought the Elephant Man’s body. There are some strange people out there.
“The auction also includes a blood-stained piece of the leather seat Kennedy was sitting on when he was killed.”
Some things should be off-limits, IMHO.
“I was just in Dallas, and uh . . . you know, you can go to the sixth floor of the School Book Depository. . . . But it’s really weird, you can actually– They have the windows set up to look exactly like it did on that day, and it’s really accurate, you know, ’cause Oswald’s not in it! Ha ha ha! Yeah. So, I don’t know who did their research, but I’m talkin’ pains-taking detail.” – Bill Hicks
I hope the same can be said of the coffin.
