Fifty years ago today, on November 22, 1963 US President John F Kennedy was assassinated in Dealey Plaza in Dallas Texas by Lee Harvey Oswald. Kennedy was shot by a sniper during a presidential motorcade, with his wife, Jacqueline Kennedy, by his side. After a ten-month investigation during 1963-64 by the Warren Commission, it was finalized that Lee Harvey Oswald acted alone in the assassination of JFK. According to polls conducted by CBS, Americans still believe that there was a motive behind his assassination. After JFK was shot he was rushed to Parkland Hospital, however it was declared that he had a “moribund”, which meant there was no chance for his survival because of the gunshot wound to his skull. Only thirty minutes after the shooting, at 1:00 p.m. John F Kennedy was declared dead.
