LOS ANGELES, CA (Catholic Online) - After the shooting in Dallas, President Kennedy's body was flown to Washington and taken to the Bethesda Naval Hospital for a full autopsy. The president's brain was then put in a stainless steel container with a screw top lid and then stored at a Secret Service facility. The container was then put inside a footlocker and taken to the National Archives.

A new book alleges that Robert Kennedy (left) took the case that contained his brother Jack

A new book alleges that Robert Kennedy (left) took the case that contained his brother Jack's (right) brain after he was shot and killed.


The author of the startling new book, "End Of Days: The Assassination Of John F. Kennedy," James Swanson claims that the brain was "placed in a secure room designated for the use of JFK's devoted former secretary, Evelyn Lincoln, while she organized his presidential papers.

"In October 1966, it was discovered that the brain, the tissue slides and other autopsy materials were missing - and they have never been seen since," Swanson said.

President Kennedy was shot in Dallas and his assassination was the subject of several investigations

President Kennedy was shot in Dallas and his assassination was the subject of several investigations and inquiries but there is no officials word on where the slain president's brain is now.


Swanson's investigation leads him to believe that Robert Kennedy, then the -Attorney General, took the brain with the help of his secretary.

Conspiracy theorists say that the move was intended to prevent information about the nature of the assassination from coming to light - but Swanson has an entirely different theory.

Swanson, along with others think that the information Kennedy was concerned about had less to do with the assassination and more to do with his brother's health.

"My conclusion is that Robert Kennedy did take his brother's brain - not to conceal evidence of a conspiracy but perhaps to conceal evidence of the true extent of President Kennedy's illnesses, or perhaps to conceal evidence of the number of medications that President Kennedy was taking," Swanson said.

Robert Kennedy stood at Jacqueline during her husband

Robert Kennedy stood at Jacqueline during her husband's funeral.


This would be consistent with the fact that it was only learned posthumously that the President had suffered from Addison's Disease for much of his adult life.

The potentially-fatal disease occurs when a person's body produces insufficient hormones, and as such the treatment involves a number of replacement hormones being supplemented to the system through medication.

President Kennedy also diagnosed with hyperthyroidism and had severe back pain, making it unsurprising that he had a steady stream of medication prescribed to him by one of three doctors during his presidency.

This book is one of many that are being released prior to the 50th anniversary of President Kennedy's death on November 22, 1963.
