FBI profiles, people with relevance to assassination


Recommended Posts

I have been browsing the FBI's files on various celebrities and other people known to us through their work with the governement. I thought I would post up a few brief descriptions of the files.

I have noticed that there are a considerable amount of homsexuals who held files, such as Noel Coward and Rock Hudson.

The descriptions given are those made by the FBI

Dorothy Kilgallen

Dorothy Kilgallen was newspaper reporter for the New York Journal-American. She reported on the entertainment news with her column called "The Voice of Broadway." Ms. Kilgallen and Director Hoover corresponded with each other. Miss Kilgallen printed information in her column several times about cases involving the FBI, none of which were true. Dorothy Kilgallen died in November 1965, from alcohol and barbiturates.

I find it interesting that they feel the need to inform the reader that Ms.Kilgallens stories about the FBI were false!

4 pages

Chappaquiddick

The file known as Chappaquiddick, is also know known the Mary Jo Kopechne investigation. This investigation was opened when an overturned car was found at Martha's Vineyard, Massachusetts, in the water and Ms. Kopechne's body was in the car. Ms. Kopechne was a former secretary to late Senator, Robert F. Kennedy. It was determined the driver of the automobile was Senator Edward M. Kennedy. It was alleged he was on the wrong road and drove off Dike's Bridge, with the automobile overturning in the water. Senator Kennedy managed to get out of the car, but Ms. Kopechne did not make it out of the car and drowned.
