Description

Rory Fitzpatrick interviews Tom Sullivan about an appeal for help for Mrs Lee Harvey Oswald. Mrs Marina Oswald, a Russian native, was left a widow after her husband’s murder and Mr Sullivan contended that she needed support and help. An unusual appeal for the wife of the man who murdered JF Kennedy 

Notes

Marina  Nikolayevna  Oswald Porter was the Russian-born wife of Lee Havey Oswald, the man who  assassinated  JK Kennedy in November 1963. Oswald himself was in turn murdered before he could stand trial by Jack Ruby. The  Oswal ds  met in Russia when Lee Harvey Oswald defected to Russia for a short time.   

After his murder, there were appeals made to help support Marina. She had been cleared of any involvement and was left widowed with two young children. Although she did receive lots of monetary support, how she spent it was frowned upon. She  remarried two years after the events of 1963 and is still alive and living in Texas.
