"I'm Just a Patsy!" - The Untold Story of JFK, Lee Harvey Oswald, and a Dead Doctor You Should Know About
With no gunpowder residue on his face and no evidence that he fired a rifle on November 22, 1963, Lee Harvey Oswald was charged with killing President John F. Kennedy.
“I’m just a patsy,” he said. Two days later, he was gunned down by nightclub owner Jack Ruby in the basement of the Dallas police station.
But it goes much deeper than that.
Lee Harvey Oswald, whom Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. calls “a CIA asset,” found himself indirectly or directly involved in medical experiments in New Orleans.
At the heart of the story is Dr. Mary Sherman, a talented and respected orthopedic surgeon from Chicago. Working at the Ochsner Clinic in New Orleans, she became entangled in covert medical research on Simian Virus 40 (SV40), a contaminant found in polio vaccines distributed to millions of Americans and something known to cause cancer in laboratory animals at the time.
Eight months after JFK’s assassination, Dr. Sherman was found dead in her apartment. Her body had severe burn injuries, particularly concentrated on the right side of her body and arm. The extent and nature of these burns were perplexing, as they were inconsistent with a typical house fire or any common accident.
Digging into the story’s core, Shannon Joy has done some fantastic investigative work.
