The old Chinese proverb says “May you live in interesting times,” and they are certainly that. In fact, I don’t know about you, but I’ve never seen things – such strange things – happen so quickly, and in such immediate succession, one right after the other, like the rapid fire of a machine gun. And this article, shared by Mr. S.F., is such a strange one, with such huge implications, particularly in the present political and cultural context, that it prompts all sorts of high octane speculations. In fact, when I read it, I was frankly shocked.
Manhattan DA’s office probing death of reporter with possible JFK ties
But first, a little background. I’m old enough not only to remember when President Kennedy was brutally and unceremoniously gunned down in Dallas, but I am also old enough to remember Dorothy Kilgallen, an attractive woman, and certainly a sharp and dogged investigative reporter, back in an age when we still had them. While I was too young to have been a reader of her typically provocative columns (she was one of the first in the major media to have the courage to give the UFO serious, and non-debunking, coverage at a time when it was suicidal to careers to do so), she was a regular panelist on the old CBS game show, What’s my Line, hosted by John Daly. I remember watching her, blindfolded like the other panelists, trying to guess the identity of the guest, based on questions. Typically, she was also able to zero in very quickly and often correctly identified the guest.
Then, Kilgallen wrote a column about the JFK assassination, expressing doubts about the official story, and told friends – after visiting Jack Ruby in his jail cell in Dallas, and traveling to New Orleans for more “field investigation”, that she was going to blow the whole assassination wide open. And that before New Orleans District Attorney Jim Garrison’s now famous trial of Clay Shaw. Indeed, there are some who believe, not without some justification, that Ms. Kilgallen’s investigations formed some of the backdrop for Garrison’s. It’s a hypothesis I have entertained, but we’ll never know for sure. Then, before she could publish anything, Ms. Kilgallen was found… dead in her apartment in Manhattan.
This, too, prompts personal memories for me, for I remember hearing the CBS news report the story of her death. Walter Cronkite, in his distinctive monotone, delivered the news. The story was she had mistakenly taken a barbituate and alcohol, and died. Or choked to death. Or something. But… it clearly wasn’t murder. Nothing to see here, move along. While listening to Cronkite monotone his way through the story, my father, ever skeptical of the official explanation for the Kennedy assassination, grunted, made a scatalogical and bovine reference, and muttered that she was killed to silence her on the subject.
Which brings us to the article, and to my geosynchronous orbital speculations of the day.
Consider the bland report of FOX news on this story:
The Manhattan District Attorney’s office is looking into the mysterious death 51 years ago of newspaper writer and “What’s My Line?” star Dorothy Kilgallen, who was investigating the JFK assassination, The Post has learned.
The stunning development comes after a new book, “The Reporter who Knew Too Much,” suggests Kilgallen was murdered to shut down her relentless pursuit of a Mafia don linked to JFK and Lee Harvey Oswald.
Joan Vollero, a spokeswoman for DA Cyrus Vance Jr., confirmed that a staffer has read the book, and reviewed a letter from author Mark Shaw citing new leads, medical evidence, and witnesses overlooked when Kilgallen, 52, died suddenly on Nov. 8, 1965 at the peak of her career.
And that, as you can see, is indeed almost all of the article.
Ms. Kilgallen was found dead in her apartment 52 years ago.
So, I am wondering, and probably you are too, why the Manhattan District Attorney is “poking around” a “case” – if one can call it that – that is fifty-two years old? I say “case” because no official finding of murder was ever involved, so it’s not even in a cold case file. So again, why “poke around” 52 years later? The article would have us believe that the Manhattan DA’s office is responding to a certain amount of pressure. Pause and consider that one for a moment: in one of the busiest legal jurisdictions in the country, with real crimes to investigate and adjudicate, with the perpetual problem of not enough investigators and too many crimes, would…
