5. The Umbrella Man

Do you carry an umbrella with you on a sunny day? On November 22, 1963, Louie Steven Witt was surprised in Dealey Plaza with a black umbrella. More specifically, he was caught on a Zapruder film rising his umbrella right when the car of President Kennedy drove past.

Those who believed in this theory are divided into two camps: the ones who think Louie Steven Witt shot a poison dart at the president and the ones who believe he gave a signal.

But in an interview from 1978, Witt revealed that he only wanted to heckle JFK. Not so exciting, right?

Witt considers himself a conservative fellow and heard that the black umbrella was something that could have annoyed President Kennedy since it was associated with British Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain. The same as JFK’s father, Joseph Kennedy, the British prime minister advocated for a policy of appeasement in the period before World War II.

After all, none of us knows the truth, and Louie Steven Witt might not have told the whole story. Maybe he was involved, or maybe not. We will never know for sure. Or will we?
