The Man formerly known as James Sutton

November 18, 1994, former music producer Bob Vernon spoke before the Assassination Records Review Board. Vernon representing the company Truth Truth Truth Inc. presented the story of James Files another man who claimed to be President Kennedy's assassin. The associated video "Confessions of An Assassin" notes investigator Joe West spent a considerable amount time and money regarding his investigation into the James Files claims.

The Conflicting motivations of Jack Ruby

The Conflicting motivations of Jack Ruby

A rebuttal of the article "Did he Do it for Jackie?" by John McAdams, an  essay based heavily on newsgroup posts by Jean Davison and Dave Reitzes
