Reclusive girlfriend of Lee Harvey Oswald to make rare appearance in New Orleans for JFK Assassination 50th Anniversary
Judyth Vary Baker is the author of ME AND LEE: How I Came To Know, Love and Lose Lee Harvey Oswald. She will be the featured speaker at a one-day symposium at Loyola University’s Miller Hall, Room 114 on Saturday, October 19, 2013, from 9 a.m. to noon, in New Orleans. The symposium is sponsored by Trineday Publishing and Attorney Stuart H. Smith and will feature other JFK researchers and authors.
Judyth Vary Baker knew Lee Harvey Oswald in the summer of 1963 and says that he did not kill President Kennedy. In fact, she reports that Oswald admired Kennedy, and actually risked his own life to try to save the President from a ring determined to murder him. Baker reports that on July 29, 1963 Oswald told her that there was a real conspiracy to kill JFK and that he was afraid that he was being set up to take the blame for the murder. The following month, Oswald participated in several public incidents which were intended to make him look pro-Castro. Both Oswald and Kennedy were murdered in November.
