President Kennedy's Brain Is Still Missing

Who stole JFK's brain? That has been a mystery since 1966 when, three years after the president's assassination, it was discovered that his brain, which had been removed during the autopsy and stored in the National Archives, had gone missing. Conspiracy theorists have long suggested the missing organ would have proved Kennedy was not shot from the back by Lee Harvey Oswald, but from the front. The latest theory puts forward a less juicy cover-up. James Swanson, author of End of Days: The Assassination of John F. Kennedy, suggests that the president's brain was taken by his younger brother Robert Kennedy, "perhaps to conceal evidence of the true extent of President Kennedy's illnesses, or perhaps to conceal evidence of the number of medications that President Kennedy was taking.” The latest US government documents incredibly seem to agree with this theory, noting that RFK wanted to keep the brain to prevent "public display.”
