The ten weirdest JFK assassination conspiracy theories: From aliens to sugar addictions...
Ranging from the bizarre to the utterly implausible fifty years on the killing of President Kennedy continues to inspire outlandish conspiracy claims
Thursday 21 November 2013
A whole industry of conspiracy theories has grown out of the events in Dallas 50-years ago.
The more mainstream theories involve the suggestion that there was a second gunman or that the Cubans, CIA, Mafia or FBI were involved in the shooting of the President.
All have varying degrees of plausibility, depending on your perspective and 50-years on mystery continues to surround some of the events that day in Dallas.
The widely derided Magic Bullet theory for instance, the disappearance of the President's brain, the unusual approach to the autopsy. Aside from these questions, however, there are some very strange fringe theories.
Was JFK killed by the Freemasons? Did Lyndon Johnson do it? Did Lee Harvey Oswald do it because he was addicted to refined sugar?
