On This Day



On This Day… Ruby Found Guilty Of Killing Oswald

Written by: George Chittenden : 08 Jul 2019

It was on this day, 14th March, back in 1964 when Jack Ruby was found guilty of murdering Lee Harvey Oswald, the man who supposedly assassinated President John F. Kennedy. Jack Ruby was a Dallas nightclub owner with connections to organised crime.

Two days after the Presidents murder, as Lee Harvey Oswald was being escorted out of the Dallas Police Headquarters with the press’ cameras rolling, Jack Ruby appeared from the crowd and shot him. Ruby claimed he was distraught after Kennedy’s assassination and his grief caused him to suffer “psychomotor epilepsy” resulting in him shooting Oswald unconsciously.

A jury found him guilty and sentenced him to die, however over two years later in October 1966, the Texas Court of Appeals reversed the decision. They believed that Ruby hadn’t been given a fair trial, and Jack Ruby died of lung cancer while awaiting a new trial.

We promote history by...

offering free articles and videos, providing free history experiences for children in schools and on weekends. Next year we will be visiting hospitals and providing unforgettable experiences to children who really need it and give them a chance to forget their condition, their treatment and their reality. Please join others who support our free projects by giving a small donation. We can only continue our great work with your help.
