Frontline: Who Was Lee Harvey Oswald?

Tuesday, November 19 at 9:00 pm. 

Frontline marks the 50th anniversary of the Kennedy assassination with a two-hour reprise of its investigative biography of the man at the center of the political crime of the 20th century. At the heart of the assassination lies the puzzle of Lee Harvey Oswald.  Was he the emotionally disturbed lone gunman of the 1964 Warren Commission report? Was he, as the House Select Committee on Assassinations concluded, probably part of a conspiracy on that day in Dallas? Or was he an unwitting fall guy, the patsy, as Oswald himself claimed when he was arrested on November 22, 1963?

Twenty years ago, in the most comprehensive attempt on American television to penetrate this enduring enigma, Frontline's investigative team spent more than a year re-examining Oswald’s life and sifting through the psychological, political and forensic evidence of his role in the assassination. Traveling to Japan, Russia, Europe, Mexico, Canada and across the United States, the team uncovered new witnesses, documents, photographs, video and audio recordings of Lee Oswald, many of which had never before been made public.

On the night she broke up with her boyfriend, a Florida deputy sheriff, Michelle O'Connell was found dead from a gunshot wound. Next to her was her boyfriend's semi-automatic service pistol. The sheriff's office called it suicide, but was it? Frontline and The New York Times investigate the death of a young, single mother, and what can go wrong when the police are faced with domestic violence allegations within their own ranks.
