About Who Killed JFK?
Who Killed JFK? For 60 years, we are still asking that question. In commemoration of the 60th anniversary of President John F. Kennedy's tragic assassination, legendary filmmaker Rob Reiner teams up with award-winning journalist Soledad O’Brien to tell the history of America’s greatest murder mystery. They interview CIA officials, medical experts, Pulitzer-prize winning journalists, eyewitnesses and a former Secret Service agent who, in 2023, came forward with groundbreaking new evidence. They dig deep into the layers of the 60-year-old question ‘Who Killed JFK?’, how that question has shaped America, and why it matters that we’re still asking it today.
Who was Lee Harvey Oswald? We dig deep into Oswald’s story. Starting with his childhood, talking directly to people who knew him, we explore his time in the military and his curious defection to the Soviet Union at the height of the Cold War. Was he just a disgruntled ex-Marine, a lone wolf who wanted to take down a president? Or was he part of something bigger? See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.
What does the forensic evidence reveal? We start at the scene of the crime, move to the hospital and end with the strange autopsy. And with breaking news from one of Kennedy’s Secret Service Agents, the Single Bullet Theory will finally be put to rest.

But over a decade later, the House Select Committee on Assassinations claimed that President Kennedy was killed as the result of a ‘conspiracy.’ Why the conflicting results? With revelations over the last 60 years, flaws in both investigations are exposed. See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.
