  5. 5. EVERYONE LOVES A CONSPIRACY  On August 5, 1962, Monroe was found dead at her home.  She was 36 years old.  The cause of death was a drug overdose.  Accidental  Suicide  Murder……?
  6. 6.  Kennedy arrived in Dallas on November 21, 1963  Traveled to Texas for a five city tour for a few reasons:  Lost the 1960 vote in Texas during the Presidential Campaign and wanted to increase his public image in Texas  Starting his campaign for the 1964 election  The Kennedy/Johnson ticket was not particularly popular in the 1960 election and wanted to make themselves more popular with those in Dallas
  7. 7. Jacqui, JFK’s brothers Bobby (right) and Teddy (left) with JKF jnr. saluting the passing carriage of his father.
  8. 8.  There are many theories as to who truly killed Kennedy  The Magic Bullet Theory  Multiple shooters/ Multiple locations  Many are not sure what to believe because nobody can identify how many shots were fired  Also, the “back and to the left” theory  A lot of people claim that Oswald couldn't be the lone shooter because Kennedy's head went back and to the left when he was hit, if he were shot from the TSBD, his head would have gone forward and to the right.
  9. 9.  Many people believe that there were more shooters than just Oswald that day  This gives way to the theory of a conspiracy, because now we have to figure out who else had reason to kill Kennedy  There are many theories as to who would possibly want Kennedy dead due to different political dealings
