Kitty the Stripper and the JFK Files
Did she know anything and why did she commit suicide? Very sad.
THE long-awaited JFK files have revealed the FBI hunted a stripper named “Kitty” who was associated with nightclub owner and Oswald assassin Jack Ruby.
Agents hoped the mysterious woman could shed some light on the murky past of Ruby, who shot and killed Lee Harvey Oswald on November 24, 1963, two days after the President was murdered.
But in an explosive twist, investigators discovered that the dancer they were looking for may have committed suicide around two months before the assassination.
The file shows that agents were tipped off about the woman by another stripper known as “Candy Cane”.
That informant told cops that Kitty was “an associate of Jack Ruby” which led agents following the tip to New Orleans.
It was there they spoke to Leon Cornman, an agent with the American Guild of Variety Artists in the state.
