New Book Makes Shocking Claim About JFK Assassination

Posted: Updated:

This month marks fifty years since President John F. Kennedy was assassinated. And still, the circumstances surrounding his death remain tangled in mystery, conspiracy theories and unanswered questions.

Now, a new book written by a police detective is shedding some shocking new light on the assassination. The book is called JFK: The Smoking Gun and the author claims Kennedy was killed accidentally. In fact, the author is partially trying to clear Lee Harvey Oswald's name.

Australian police detective Colin McLaren wrote the book after spending years re-investigating the case. He claims Kennedy was hit by "friendly fire".

McLaren says that the bullet that killed Kennedy was fired accidentally by a secret service agent, whose gun discharged in the chaos after Lee Harvey Oswald's bullet hit the president. However, he claims that it was not Oswald who fired the fatal shot.

"Lee Harvey's Oswald's rounds won't go in. Impossible. Whereas if you take the bullets from the secret service AR fifteen riffle, perfect fit. So just logic, simple ballistics," McLaren said. "That shot there belongs to the secret service weapon. That's the one that killed JFK."

McLaren's book JFK: THE SMOKING GUN is now available. The documentary that chronicled McLaren's findings aired last night on the "Reelz" network.

November 22nd will be the 50th anniversary of the Kennedy assassination.
