Widow OKs an autopsy on Lee Oswald's body

Lee Harvey Oswald's widow has signed papers authorizing a special autopsy on the body of the assassin of President John F. Kennedy. The action is prompted by the work of British author Michael Eddowes, who has probed the Kennedy assassination for 16 years. He contends that if there is a body beneath the red granite marker, it is that of a Soviet secret agent, known as a "sleeper" in intelligence circles, who became an Oswald impostor after Oswald arrived in the Soviet Union in 1959. He says the Soviet agent assumed Oswald's identity and returned to the United States in 1962, and the real Oswald "disappeared" in Russia.
