Pathologists say body is really Lee Oswald's

The grave of Lee Harvey Oswald was opened Sunday and a team of pathologists said an autopsy confirmed the body was that of the accused assassin of President John F. Kennedy. The results disproved a theory that Kennedy actually was killed in 1963 by a Russian agent who had assumed Oswald's identity.

In the most critical test during the autopsy, doctors matched the teeth of the remains with Oswald's dental records from the Marine Corps in the mid-1950s, before Oswald's defection to the Soviet Union in 1959.
