Over the years, numerous theories have arisen surrounding the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. One modern theory poses the idea that the fatal third shot was made, not by Lee Harvey Oswald, but by a Secret Service agent by accident. That agent, believed to be George Hickey, may have tragically discharged his rifle after losing his balance when the car he was riding in came to a sudden stop. Some theorists believe that the trajectory of the bullet that ultimately killed Kennedy could have only come from one of the Secret Service cars, and images from the day show Hickey standing in the car holding a newly issued Cold AR-15 rifle. While we may never know what truly happened that day, the theory is an interesting one that still persists today. From the collection of Ron Hoskins assassinologist.
