Two Oswalds

Lee Harvey Oswald (1939 – 1963) was, according to at least three United States government investigations, the assassin of U.S. President John F. Kennedy on November 22, 1963, in Dallas, Texas.

Oswald was a former United States Marine who defected to the Soviet Union and later returned to the United States. Lee Harvey Oswald, age 24, was arrested on suspicion of killing Dallas police officer J.D. Tippet. Oswald was later connected to the assassination of President Kennedy. Oswald vehemently denied any responsibility for the murders.

Mystery and pain – side by side.

Two days later – before he could be brought to trial for the crimes, while being transferred under police custody from the city jail to the county jail – Oswald was shot and mortally wounded by Dallas club owner Jack Ruby on live television.

The first image above shows the indignation Oswald had for his whole situation. It looks like he may want to tell us something. The next image shows him meeting his unnatural demise as he was shot by Jack Ruby. Mystery and pain – side by side.
