After years of speculation and theorizing, the truth is finally being revealed by the United States government with the release of thousands of pages of documents. Just this week, more than 400 never-before-seen records were put online.

The sudden rush of records is thanks to a law from 1992 that set a deadline - October, 2017 - for the public release of all documents related to the Kennedy assassination. The 4,000 newest records from the FBI and CIA shed light on Lee Harvey Oswald, Kennedy's mysterious assassin.

The Warren Commission - the U.S. government's official investigation into Kennedy's murder - concluded that Oswald was the sole shooter, that he fired from the 6th floor of the Texas School Book Depository, and that he acted alone (meaning there was no conspiracy to kill the president).
