Oswald was never tried in court for any of the crimes committed on November 22, 1963.
There are no films or photos of Oswald himself (or anyone else) actually firing a gun on November 22, 1963.
There are no pictures or films of Oswald either in or around Dealy Plaza that day.
No witness put Oswald personally ON the sixth floor of the building AT the time of the shooting, not even his co-workers or boss. This is a fact that would have been important in a trial with a good defense lawyer.
No witness ever officially identified Oswald as shooting in Dealy Plaza. This despite Oswald's appearance in at least three (3) police lineups before he died. Only one witness saw anybody shooting, but he could not ID who when he attended the lineups.
Gov. Connally testified under oath to Warren Commission and directly contradicted its conclusion regarding the gunshots. He continued to dispute it in every forum publicly and privately for the rest of his life.
Of the eight (8) Secret Service agents inside or on the open car immediately behind the President's, only one (1) was called to verbally testify to the Warren Commission. The other seven did not.
Many govt. documents are still secret, some not to be released until as late as the year 2050.
Warren Commission concluded there were 3 gunshots. House Assassination Committee concluded there were 4 shots.
Two days after the assassination FBI Agent James Hosty flushed evidence down a toilet. It was a hand-written note from Oswald to the FBI. He said his supervisor told him to do it.
There are photographs of officials with buckets and rags washing down the exterior of the limousine while parked immediately after the assassination, thereby destroying valuable police evidence on the car, forever.
President Kennedy's brain was not buried with his body. It was kept by his brother Robert in a locked safe. Robert was murdered in 1968 and the brain is now lost.
Autopsy doctor James Humes burned the original autopsy notes in a fireplace at his home a day or two after the assassination, so they are lost forever.
President Lyndon Johnson told Walter Cronkite (and others) that he thought the assassination was a conspiracy.
There is a famous film clip of Jack Ruby stating that it was a conspiracy and that he would say more later. He never did.
