Lee Harvey Oswald’s youngest daughter, Rachel, was only one month old in 1963 when her father allegedly killed President Kennedy, and was shot to death himself. Twenty-eight years later, she granted this TV interview.
- Raised by her stepfather, Rachel Oswald Porter didn’t know who her birth father was as a young child.
- Her mother, Marina Oswald Porter, kept the family secret for years.
- She heard the name “Oswald” but said he was a mystery man in her household.
- She discovered his true identity while sifting through newspaper clippings and mementos in the attic.
- Rachel believes her father was “involved” in the Kennedy conspiracy, but does not believe he killed the president.
- She uses her stepfather’s name, Porter, to avoid unwanted attention from being related to an infamous character.
- If she could speak to her father, Lee Harvey Oswald, she would ask him, “How could you leave your wife and your two kids to carry this burden?”
