How did John F. Kennedy die?
Six months before John F. Kennedy's death Secret Services had over 400 threats to his life. Three of these were serious enough that JFK needed to make changes to his routine.

Lee Harvey Oswald was arrested approximately 70 minutes after the assassination of John F. Kennedy. According to witnesses Lee Harvey Oswald had been spotted walking along a sidewalk three miles from Dealey Plaza and the police had received radio messages, which gave the description of Oswald. According to one of the arresting officers, Oswald resisted arrest and was attempting to draw his pistol when he was struck and forcibly restrained by the police. He was charged with the murders of President Kennedy and Officer Tippit later that night. Lee Harvey Oswald's case never came to trial because two days later while being escorted to a car to be transferred from Dallas Police Headquarters to the Dallas County Jail, he was shot and killed by Jack Ruby, live on American television. Jack Ruby was arrested after the shooting and said he was upset over the assassination of JFK and it would save Mrs. Kennedy coming back to the trial.

However many people today do not believe that Oswald killed John F. Kennedy. There are many conspiracy theories, such as Bush Sr. and all of his Nazi Illuminati buddies, together with the help of the Italian Mafia killed Kennedy. It is believed that over 74 people who know about this conspiracy have been murdered to keep it a secret.
