How ‘Lady Granny’ Became a Mysterious Witness to the Kennedy Assassination

(ORDO NEWS) — In the United States, another batch of documents on the assassination of John F. Kennedy has been declassified.

All closed archives relating to the case were supposed to be published back in 2017, but the authorities repeatedly postponed the deadlines. According to the American media, about 10,000 documents are stored in the archives. They may be published in December 2022.

Case of the century

Video footage from the scene of the assassination of the 35th President of the United States, the researchers studied frame by frame and more than once.

But, despite careful investigation, after almost 60 years, many questions are still not answered. Even the guilt of the only official suspect – Lee Harvey Oswald – is still being questioned by many.

“This is one of the most resonant murders of the 20th century. It is also resonant because Lee Harvey Oswald was shot dead two days after the assassination of Kennedy himself.

Actually, he was not charged. Later, several conspiracy theories appeared,” says the candidate of historical sciences Leonid Blonsky.

Precious Chronicle

Shots were fired in Dallas on November 22, 1963 at 12:30 pm. The first minutes after the assassination attempt on the president, real chaos reigned around.

People ran in panic, fell to the ground and covered their heads with their hands, afraid of the next shots. Those who did not succumb to hysteria took photos and videos. These shots have become invaluable for the investigation.

Several eyewitnesses were able to capture the moment of the murder. One of them was businessman Abraham Zapruder, who filmed the passage of the presidential motorcade for 26 seconds.

The Zapruder video turned out to be one of the most informative and featured as important material evidence. The businessman handed over a copy to the security services, and subsequently sold the rights to use the video to a well-known magazine.

Another witness is Mary Ann Moorman, who managed to photograph the limousine moments after the shot was fired.

“America is a developed country. Many had not only cameras, but also video cameras.

The police tried to find as much evidence of the murder as possible in order to consider the committed act from different sides and angles.

Up to several thousand witnesses were interviewed,” says Leonid Blonsky.

Lady Granny

The most mysterious witness to the Kennedy assassination was another woman. In the media, she was dubbed Lady Grandmother because of the clothes that are atypical for an American woman.

“She was compared with Russian grandmothers. Despite the warm, sunny day, she was wearing a thick scarf.

She was dressed in a shapeless cloak that hid her figure. We can’t even accurately determine her age. Perhaps 40-50 years old,”

Lady Grandma continued to dispassionately photograph the scene of the tragedy as other bystanders scattered.

The police issued a bulletin asking for any information about this woman. From her angle, it was possible to shoot not only the window from where Oswald fired, but also the hill, from which the second sniper probably opened fire.

“Her camera turned out to be the closest. She continued to shoot, and these shots could record exactly how many shots the attackers fired – three, six or seven.

Version about the KGB

Fans of conspiracy theories are sure that Lady Babushka is the wife of Yuri Nosenko, a defector from the KGB. Allegedly, Nosenko supervised Oswald when he lived in the USSR.

“Oswald sympathized with Marxism and voluntarily came to the Soviet Union in 1959.

He stayed here until 1962. Basically, Oswald lived in Minsk, where he was given a furnished apartment in a prestigious building. He worked at a local machine-building plant,”

Recently declassified documents confirm that the American intelligence services worked out the version of Oswald’s possible connections with Soviet agents.

Some researchers believe: Nosenko continued to work for the KGB, and he recruited specially for the Americans, and it was he who pushed Oswald to the fatal shot. Therefore, his wife recorded what was happening on camera, and then disappeared without a trace.

“I believe that the KGB was not involved in the murder. The roots must be sought in the country where the murder took place,” says Leonid Blonsky.

Confession of Beverly Oliver

Over the years, in search of popularity, several women have tried to pass themselves off as Lady Grandmother – perhaps the most important witness to the assassination of John F. Kennedy. According to a common version, it could be dancer Beverly Oliver, who herself made a shocking confession in 1970.

However, many considered the words of the American a lie. Beverly Oliver did not provide any evidence, limiting herself to an unfounded statement.
