The assassination of President John F. Kennedy on November 22, 1963, was a dark and confusing time for Americans. People all over the country were left with questions of the events that took place on that day. 48 years later those questions still linger.
On the anniversary of President Kennedy’s death, conspiracy theorist and historians continue to provide their own narratives on what took place – with new evidence and facts still emerging.
In a recent report by Carter Vanderhoof on Reformer.com, he tells the story of Bill Holiday, a social studies teacher who hosts discussions on the eyewitness testimonies and conspiracy theories surrounding the assassination.
According to Vanderhoof, Holiday believes there are still questions about the facts of the assassination. Holiday says there are key issues that leave questions up in the air.
Some include: two dozen accounts of eyewitnesses who passed away before giving testimony, the fact that there were no officers on the Presidential limo that day and the idea that a normal autopsy was not done on the President.
"There are people still digging," Holiday told The Reformer about theorists who are still looking for answers. "People want to know why."
Researcher and conspiracy theorist may soon have answers.
Recently, a long-lost version of the Air Force One recordings made in the immediate aftermath of President John F. Kennedy's assassination, with more than 30 minutes of additional material not in the official version in the government's archives, was put up for sale by auctioneers The Raab Collection for $500,000.
"That this tape even exists will change the way we view this great event in history," Nathan Raab, vice president of The Raab Collection, told The Associated Press. "It took decades to analyze the shorter, newer version and it will take years to do the same here."
Although the tapes will provide extra information that can fill in the holes that have been left in the shooting, answering all of the questions that have been waiting to be answered almost 50 years to the day may prove to be futile.
