Lee Harvey Oswald was the suspected murderer of John F. Kennedy and arrested within hours of the shooting. On November 24 1963, the Dallas police decided to transfer Oswald to a county jail. In the underground parking of the police headquarters, an individual known as Jack Ruby violently broke through a crowd of cameramen, photographers and journalists, fired on Oswald and mortally wounding him. The US Government released a statement in 1979 that concluded officially that Oswald was the shooter. Years later, James Files confessed to being the real shooter. The case is still shrouded by mystery and becomes a favorite subject for any conspiracy theories buff.
