Lee Harvey Oswald

6. Lee Harvey Oswald

Probably one of the most famous assassins was Lee Harvey Oswald. As many knew, he was the man who fired shots at President John F. Kennedy. Kennedy was riding in a motorcade in Dallas, Texas when Oswald assassinated him.

Additionally, he also fired shots at a police officer who was attempting to question him following JFK’s death. About 30 minutes later he was found hiding out in a movie theater and was then arrested. While in the custody of law enforcement during a jail transfer, he was shot by a local nightclub owner who was well known for his criminal activity.

There are some that say, Jack Ruby, the man who shot Oswald, was also in on the shooting of Kennedy, and only killed Oswald to cover his tracks.
