Sabato Shares Lingering Questions About JFK’s Death

A local political expert is casting new doubts on past investigations of President Kennedy’s assasination. University of Virginia Professor Larry Sabato says his research shows there were previously unknown people on a grassy knoll on November 22nd, 1963 in downtown Dallas. Sabato wrote a new book on the 50th anniversary of the assassination, and he’s challenging the conclusions that prior investigators reached. You can hear his brief remarks by clicking on the button at the bottom of this article. James Bowles, who was the communications director of the Dallas Police in 1963, shares Sabato’s doubts about the Warren Commission report and other prior investigations. Bowles does not believe the late Lee Harvey Oswald acted alone. Sabato shared his findings Tuesday at The Newseum in Washington, D.C. John F. Kennedy (pictured left, courtesy of the University of Virginia archives) is shown visiting UVA in May 1958, while he was a U.S. Senator from Massachusetts. JFK is pictured with his brothers Robert (pictured center), and Ted (pictured right). RFK was a 1951 alumnus of the UVA Law School. Ted was finishing his second year at the law school at the time of his older brothers’ visit.
