50 Years Since JFK Assassination Retrospective: Gary Underhill's Mysterious Death

Among the mysterious deaths related to the apparent JFK assassination conspiracy cover-up was the strange death of Gary Underhill. As Jim Marrs recalled in his Crossfire: The Plot That Killed Kennedy book:

"One strange incident involved an operative named Gary Underhill...At the time of the assassination, Underhill performed `special assignments' for the CIA and was on close terms with officials of both the Agency and the Pentagon. Several days after the assassination Underhill visited friends in New Jersey. He was badly shaken and fearful. He said that President Kennedy had been killed by a small group within the CIA and that he believed his life was in danger. A short time later, Underhill was found fatally shot in his Washington apartment..."

JFK Assassination `Prophet' Dixon's CIA Connection

Following the assassination of JFK, Jeane Dixon gained some fame for having "predicted" the event. As A Gift of Prophecy: The Phenomenal Jeane Dixon by Ruth Montgomery noted in 1965:

"It was a bright, crisp day in late November. The luncheon had been scheduled several weeks in advance...Mrs. Harley Cope, widow of a rear admiral, and Jeane Dixon, Washington's famous seeress, ordered eggs Florentine...

"The...brunette leaned back against her chair and closed her eyes. `...Something dreadful is going to happen to the president today...'

"Jeane could only nod miserably, while Mrs. Cope explained. `Mrs. Dixon had been foreseeing a tragedy for President Kennedy very soon...'"

Coincidentally, the same book also revealed that prior to November 22, 1963, the CIA-backed Cuban exile leader Mario Garcia Kohly visited Dixon in her office. And in his 1980 book Conspiracy, Anthony Summers wrote:

"In 1978 I interviewed the son of the late Mario Kohly...The younger Kohly recalled opening a bottle of champagne at the news of President Kennedy's death and then calling his father. According to Kohly, `My father seemed elated and quite relieved, he seemed more pleased, I would say, than surprised. I am sure he had knowledge of what really happened in Dealey Plaza...'"

Summers also observed that Kohly's son quoted the deceased CIA-backed Cuban exile leader as saying "John Kennedy was a traitor...He was a Communist."
