Shock deathbed confession from JFK bodyguard reveals assassination truth

A BODYGUARD of JFK has spilled the beans about his assassination in a shocking deathbed confession.

Film director Oliver Stone says he was told that someone within President Kennedy’s team fired the fateful shot.

His source, who went by the codename Ron, reached out to Mr Stone after he directed JFK, a movie dealing with the conspiracy theory.

They exchanged letters and the director was sceptical about the claims, but then they met at a hotel in the US city of Rochester, New York.

"He said he didn’t want money or recognition," recalled Mr Stone. "He said something like, ’I want you to know this is from my conscience.’"

As a former marine himself, the filmmaker was convinced by the military jargon and intricate details in his source’s description.

Mr Stone said: "The scenario was very practical. It’s the way I would do it, if [I] were going to do something like that.

"Your cover is security; the snipers who kill the president are hidden with the guys who are supposed to protect him.

"His memory of it was so technical, filled with military jargon, details about radio communications right after the shots."

Lee Harvey Oswald was accused of shooting the president, but was shot dead himself by nightclub owner Jack Ruby before he stood trial.

The official account, which says Oswald was a lone gunman, firing from the sixth floor of the nearby Texas School Book Depository, is questioned by many.

A popular theory suggests that a second shooter, responsible for the killing blow, opened fire from a location nearby – typically a grassy knoll.

Mr Stone himself recalls in Vietnam using "coordinated kill zones" where multiple shooters targeted a victim from different directions.

The director revealed the bodyguard’s confession to Matt Zoller Seitz, who’s authoring upcoming book, The Oliver Stone Experience.

The filmmaker said his source had revealed his story to nobody before him but his son, and that he alone survived to tell it.

Mr Seitz said: "I think Stone trusted me, and also both the father and the son have been dead for a while."
