As the 50th anniversary of the assassination of John F. Kennedy approaches, many facts and theories will be once again made public regarding that fateful day. One of the strangest things associated with that sad day in American history is that 50 years later, Kennedy’s brain is still missing. Did brother Bobby take it?
John F. Kennedy was buried without his brain on Nov. 25, 1963. A new book “End of Days: The Assassination of John F. Kennedy” which will be in bookstores Nov. 12, makes the startling claim that Kennedy’s younger brother, Robert F. Kennedy, removed that along with other evidence stored in the National Archives.
“Not all the evidence from the assassination is at the National Archives. One unique, macabre item from the collection is missing — President Kennedy’s brain,” writes Swanson. “For a time, the steel container was stored in a file cabinet in the office of the Secret Service. In October 1966, it was discovered that the brain, the tissue slides and other autopsy materials were missing — and they have never been seen since.”
An investigation didn't solve the missing brain controversy. But it did “uncover compelling evidence suggesting that former Attorney General Robert Kennedy, aided by his assistant Angie Novello, had stolen the locker,” accord to Swanson.
The conspiracy theorists pounced on this, saying that Kennedy’s brain was taken to conceal the fact that he was shot from the front, not from the back as the official version of events states.
James Swanson doesn't buy into that version. He sees no plot here other than the concern of a caring brother.
“My conclusion is that Robert Kennedy did take his brother’s brain — not to conceal evidence of a conspiracy but perhaps to conceal evidence of the true extent of President Kennedy’s illnesses, or perhaps to conceal evidence of the number of medications that President Kennedy was taking,” he said.
