Oswald's widow, in suit, seeks exhumation data

The widow of Lee Harvey Oswald, the accused assassin of President Kennedy, is suing to have his body exhumed in the belief that government documents will provide enough new evidence to convince a jury he was removed illegally from his grave.

The previously undisclosed evidence consists of a transcript of a Warren Commission discussion of the possibility of opening the grave and secretly removing the body and cremating or reinterring it, says Jerry Pittman, attorney for the widow, Marina Oswald Porter. Even more incriminating, he says, is a government memo under the title "Exhuming Oswald," noting that a "competent and trustworthy" doctor had been found to perform an autopsy on the body.
