Babushka Lady photos (lost photographs of John. F Kennedy assassination; existence unconfirmed; 1963)
On November 22nd, 1963, then-American president John. F Kennedy was assassinated while in a car driving down downtown Dallas, Texas. However, eyewitnesses claim that a lady wearing a babushka was taking photos during the assassination. There also have been supposed sightings of the lady on filming of the assassination. However, these photos have never been released.
Sightings[edit | edit source]
On films of the assassination, a woman that looked to be in her 30s wearing a babushka was spotted standing on some grass next to the road as JFK's car passed by. She seemed to be holding her hands up to her face, presumably holding a camera.
Identity[edit | edit source]
The identity of the woman has not been confirmed, but a dancer named Beverly Oliver stepped forward claiming she was the woman. There's a good amount of doubt to the claim, however, as there is a lack of any evidence that proved she was even at the place of the assassination at all, and claiming that she was using a camera that wasn't on the US market in 1963 to take the pictures.
Availability[edit | edit source]
Not only have none of the photos been found, they haven't even been confirmed to exist. No one knows where the babushka lady has gone, or even if she was a female at all, and to this day there are still multiple conspiracies about the woman and her photos.
