Brand new documentary, ‘Capturing Oswald’, marks the 50th anniversary of President John F. Kennedy’s assassination, as retired homicide detectives and officers from the Dallas Police Department break their silence about the events of November 22, 1963. Many of them haven’t spoken publicly in years about the tragic events that unfolded on that fateful day that changed America, but now they come together for the first time to provide a collective, detailed account of the DPD investigation that had JFK’s alleged assassin in custody within 90 minutes of the shooting. Their deeply personal accounts of the tumultuous 48 hours following JFK’s untimely death are the focus of this powerful one-hour documentary. Co-produced by Kate Griendling, the granddaughter of Jim Leavelle, who was the detective handcuffed to Lee Harvey Oswald when Jack Ruby shot him, ‘Capturing Oswald’ provides unique access and a fresh perspective on the manhunt for Kennedy’s killer.
